Over the years, our affection for the watchmaking and people of IWC has swelled as we’ve added to our collections, traveled to Schaffhausen, and met IWC collectors and employees alike. IWC sits apart from the constellation of Swiss watch brands, and once you dial in to their wavelength, there’s no going back.
IWC Pilot's Chronograph C.03 for Collective
With the C.03 we’ve sought to create a watch that distills our favorite IWC era and reference – the late 1990s and IW3706, the first pilot’s chronograph. That time and watch still loom large in the hearts of collectors worldwide. The brand had an unapologetic swagger, a no-frills Swiss-German approach to design, and displayed serious watchmaking bonafides. With this project, we aimed to bottle that spirit, and bring it into a modern context.
Details Designed for Collectors
First and foremost, the C.03 is a no-nonsense, tool watch. When going hands-on, you'll instantly feel this is a watch that wants to be worn, and worn hard. Likewise, the watch is quintessentially IWC in its design – clean and stark – yet features subtle details for fans of the brand:
41mm stainless steel case
Black matte, monochromatic dial with matching day and date
