IWC Schaffhausen has decided to pay homage to the skilled pilots that form a part of the Patrouille Suisse with a special edition: the Patrouille Suisse’s Watch Chronograph for pilots. The dial clear face spots black needles that show time on illuminated white indices. The watch with a caliber 79320, is reminiscent of “the Northrop F-5E Tiger II”, where six pilots of the Patrouille Suisse make perfect formation while flying at speeds up to 1000 km / h. The stainless steel watch with a 42 mm diameter comes with a 44-hour power reserve and a 6-bar water resistance. The masculine design sees a “stainless steel case etched in sand, a dull gray and black textile strap stitching”.
Limited to 300 pieces only, the watches feature the inscription “PATROL TRIBUTE TO SWITZERLANDalong with the serial number at the button of the watch case. The watch is said to be available from mid-June this year exclusively at the Swiss trade.
