Official description

Motor racing combines performance engineering, cutting-edge technology and innovative materials with pure adrenaline. This dynamic world has now inspired a unique timepiece from IWC, of which only 15 pieces will be made: The Big Pilot’s Watch Constant-Force Tourbillon Edition “IWC Racing“ is the first Big Pilot’s Watch made of Ceratanium®. Developed by IWC, this ground-breaking material is based on a proprietary titanium alloy and fired in a kiln. It is as light and robust as titanium but at the same time similarly hard and scratch-resistant as ceramic. All components of the case, including the conical crown and the pin buckle, are made of Ceratanium® and boast a unique matte-black finish. The powerful engine of this portable racing machine is the IWC-manufactured 94800 calibre, one of the most complex movements ever designed by IWC. The patented constant-force mechanism disengages the escapement from the direct flow of power from the wheel train and transmits completely even impulses of energy to the escape wheel. In conjunction with the tourbillon, which compensates for the negative influences of gravity on the oscillating system, this ensures a highly exact rate. The pates and bridges, blackened in an elaborate rhodium-plating process, match the colour of the case. The movement is reminiscent of an engine block and can be viewed through the transparent glass back. With white numerals and yellow colour accents, the black dial recalls the style of a dashboard. In addition to the constant-force tourbillon and the double moon phase display for the northern and southern hemisphere, it also boasts a power reserve display in the design of a tachometer. The ribbed, ring-shaped structure of the outer dial ring takes inspiration from the cold air intakes of high-performance engines. Even the black rubber strap features a detail from the world of racing: it boasts an inlay made of Alcantara®*, a synthetic and durable micro-fibre with superb grip. This material is used for the seats and steering wheel covers of performance cars. * IWC Schaffhausen ist not the owner of the Alcantara® trademark.
