In 2016, IWC took a step back towards the roots of the Big Pilot’s Watch and gave it a gentle facelift. The IWC-manufactured 52110-calibre movement unites some of watchmaking’s greatest achievements. It features an efficient Pellaton automatic winding system with parts made from black or white ceramic. With the help of two barrels, it builds up a reserve of 7 days. The display at “3 o’clock” indicates the time remaining until the movement comes to a stop. The Big Pilot’s Watch has a date display at “6 o’clock” and the central seconds essential in any watch used for flying. The 46-millimetre case, which is water-resistant to 6 bar, encloses a soft-iron inner case that protects the movement against magnetic fields. The watch also features a striking conical crown. The legendary Junkers JU-52 plane is engraved on the case back of the Big Pilot’s Watch. This model comes with a black calfskin strap by Santoni, which perfectly complements the watch.

This is perhaps one of the most overlooked — yet most crucial things that buyers should consider.
Official warranties often cover the movement and any major defects, which can be extremely valuable. In many cases, a faulty timepiece covered under warranty, may even be completely replaced with a brand new one. Compare that with “no official warranty coverage” provided by gray market retailers, who also often have “no return” policies. And, consider that some official service centers won’t even deal with your issue if your watch was not purchased from an authorised Retailer.
An authorised retailer can provide the assurance of guaranteed and complete coverage under the official manufacturer’s warranty. Additionally, authorised retailers generally have access to the entire product listing for the brands they represent.
There are other benefits that vary by store, city, and brand, as well as the customer. Here’s a great article discussing some of them.
