Navigating the Professional Pilot’s Watches Program

Emerging from IWC’s collaborative synergy with the U.S. Navy, the Professional Pilot’s Watches Program is a testament to the Swiss watchmaker’s dedication to crafting specialized timepieces for jet pilots. The genesis of the Pilot’s Watch Automatic 41 Black Aces (Ref. IW326905) draws inspiration from a pilot’s watch designed for members of the renowned Strike Fighter Squadron 41 (VFA-41), recognized as the “Black Aces.” Stationed at Naval Air Station Lemoore in California, the squadron’s origins trace back to 1950 at NAS Oceana. Affiliated with Carrier Air Wing 9, they bear the radio callsign “Fast Eagle.”

LumiCast Brilliance and Collaboration

The luminescent marvel of the fully luminous white LumiCast dial is a collaborative creation with the pilots of the “Black Aces.” LumiCast, a concentrated Swiss Super-LumiNova, can be meticulously shaped and sized in three-dimensional forms, a result of an intricate manufacturing process. This process involves blending superior Super-LumiNova pigments with a binder, casting them into a circular mold, and subsequently hardening through a curing procedure, imparting ceramic-like durability. The solid disc is then seamlessly integrated onto the soft-iron dial blank. It is adorned with black indices, numerals, and the distinctive “Black Aces” patch, resembling the ace of spades from a deck of cards. The dial’s luminosity, emitting a radiant greenish light for over 23 hours in dark chamber assessments, is a testament to its brilliance. The perpetual absorption and release of light energy, without aging or compromising its luminous capacity, define this innovative creation.

A Sleek and Stealthy Design

The 41mm case of the timepiece is meticulously fashioned from black zirconium oxide ceramic, a material IWC pioneered in the 1980s. Recognized as one of Earth’s most robust substances, ceramic’s qualities – lightness, hardness, and scratch resistance – render it ideal for the demanding environment of a jet cockpit. Furthermore, its matte-black hue prevents sunlight reflections, ensuring seamless focus for pilots. The caseback, composed of lightweight yet durable titanium, features an engraving portraying the Black Aces’ twin-engine jet against an intriguing backdrop of spades.

Precision in Motion: The Heart of Innovation

Driven by the in-house 32100 caliber automatic movement, this watch demonstrates unwavering precision. Bolstered by the anti-magnetic silicon escapement within a soft-iron inner case, it effectively combats magnetic fields. The innovative double pawl winding system achieves a substantial 72-hour power reserve within the mainspring. Adorned with a black textile strap featuring a sand-blasted stainless steel pin buckle, this timepiece melds comfort and functionality with sophistication.

Review The IWC Pilot 43mm Steel Chronograph Watch IW377724 Replica

In 2017, IWC took us by surprise when presenting the desirable, vintage-inspired and definitely cool IWC Pilot’s Chronograph Mark XVIII Edition watch “Tribute to Mark XI”. Now, it’s time for the Schaffhausen-based brand to focus on the chronograph version of this watch and to apply the same recipe: baton hands, faux-patine markers, cleaner dial and fabric strap. And if the 3-hander was mimicking the Mark XI, the new IWC Pilot 43mm steel chronograph IW377724 replica is reminiscent of one of the coolest 1990s watches, the Fliegerchronograph ref. 3706.

Same Case

IWC takes the ref. IW377709, a watch in the collection for 3 years now, as a base for its newest IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph replica. Don’t be surprised to find the same case, the same display, the same crown and pushers and the same specifications. The new Pilot’s Watch Chronograph IW377724 replica indeed has the same 43mm steel case, with circular brushed surface, the same large crown/pushers, the same day-date display and a chronograph movement (calibre 79320) which is still based on the reliable Valjoux architecture.

Different Points

What changes then? First, the strap is obviously different, as crafted in green fabric and reinforced with leather on critical areas – it is the same strap as used on the 2017 IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Edition “Tribute to Mark XI”. The main difference is, of course, to be seen on the dial. The recipe is the same as the “Tribute to Mark XI”. No more propeller-like hands, no more baton hour indexes. Instead, we have the historically-relevant baton hands, the thinner hour numerals, simple baton hands for the sub-counters, a clear 1/4th of a second track on the periphery of the dial and, important, the vintage-like faux-patina indexes at 3-6-9 and triangle at 12.

Of course, one other difference is the lume – the new model has beige lume on the markers and hands, which replicates the appearance of aged tritium on the original references 3705/6. It’s pretty remarkable that that yesterday’s launch happened in such a soft way – especially considering the amount of buzz this is liable to generate. IWC broke with the usual industry practice; there was no conventional press release announcing its arrival. The whole launch consisted of an announcement on social media. It may prove to have been a smart move, though.
