IWC has been busy lately. On June 1st, I wrote about a new watch. Now, 9 days later, I am writing about another. What a watch this is. The sunray dial is a beautiful dark, rich blue with white superluminova-coated markers and hands. IWC has also been using the calibre 79320, which is based off of the Valjoux 7750, quite a bit lately. This movement is used across many of IWC's watches. The stainless steel case is 43mm in diameter and has a relatively thin bezel, so the watch will wear larger than the size would suggest. The domed sapphire crystal has anti-reflective coating on both sides, which reduces glare far better than single-side AR coating. The watch is water-resistant to 60m, plenty for a pilot watch that is supposed to be 30,000 feet in the air. Complimenting the watch is a brown leather strap with quilted stitching and a pin buckle. Another great watch from IWC!
