Pilot's Watches

The pilot's watch was of enormous importance, especially in the early days of civil and military aviation. Accuracy and easy readability were the essential requirements for fast and precise navigation in any flight situation. In 1936 IWC presented the first special watch for aviators. In 1940, the Large Pilot's Watch, also known as the Observation Watch, was launched on the market. In 1948 IWC produced a newly designed navigation watch with effective magnetic field protection for the Royal Air Force, which remained in service for over 40 years. The legendary Mark XI.

International Watch Company


The succes story of IWC began in 1868 when the American engineer Florentine Aristo Jones settled in Schaffhausen, Switzerland. His business partner Johann Heinrich Moser had invented a system that enabled them to use the water power of the Rhine for industrial purposes. Together they started the mechanized production of Watches. In the following Year they already produced over 10.000 Watches for the US market and expanded selling internationally.

The reason: that darned International Date Line. A circumstance that already caused problems for Jules Verne's hero Phileas Fogg on his journey around the world in 80 days.
