The IWC Fliegerchronograph was one of the first ceramic made chronographs (an earlier model of the Da Vinci did exist) and quickly found a cult following among IWC collectors. Known to be extremely difficult to work with and prone to scratching combined with a high retail price at the time of launch, some estimate its total 2/3 years production run to around 2000 pieces. Bought new by the consignor, a great full set reference 3705.
