IWC, Ref. 3717
The dial of the Pilot’s watch chronograph leans heavily on the classical design of the Big Pilot’s watch, as can be seen from the eye-catching chapter ring and the propeller-like hands.
The calibre 79320 (28 800 b / h) chronograph movement functions as a stopwatch with aggregate timing up to 12 hours and shows the day and the date.
