About this watch

A true icon, the IWC Big Pilots ref 500201 aka Slow- Beat is a must have have in any watch collectors box. The 46mm case is made from stainless steel which has a brushed and satin finish, black dial with a recessed sub-dial for the power reserve indicator which runs for no less than 7 days. Everything on this piece is so clear and well presented, from that beautiful crown, to the hour and minute markers and hands, especially that 12 o'clock triangle with double dot and quick set date display at 6 o'clock, fitted with an immense, riveted brown alligator leather strap and old school, easy to use deployment clasp to showcase its elegance. IWC Calibre 5011 provides as mentioned, a huge 168 hours of running. The watch is also water resistant to 60m.

Additional Comments

This is a sought after first edition of the iconic Big Pilot model, sometimes referred to as "Slow-Beat" due to the rate of five beats per second which allows one to see the beat in a way that many modern mechanical watches (typically beating 8 times per second) don't permit. This piece has the Probus Scafusia crown.
