Indispensable for large pilot series watches is the large-sized dial. The dial diameter of this watch reaches 48 mm, which is definitely worthy of the name of the large pilot. The rose gold case with black dial has a solid taste in luxury.
The upper part of the dial is set at two o’clock on the moon phase display at the ’12 o’clock’ position. The two small windows of the aircraft outline indicate the moon phase status in the northern and southern hemispheres. In each lunar month, which is about 29.5 days long, the watch mimics the change of the lunar orbit only about 12 seconds.
The lower part of the dial has a rich display. In addition to the perpetual calendar display, there is a power reserve indicator in the middle of the small dial at 3 o’clock. The dial in the middle of the small dial at 9 o’clock is a small second hand. The concave design of the outer ring and the hands of different shapes make the small watch. The circle is used effectively.
The crown design on the side is eye-catching, matching the side of the wider case. The rose gold case and crown are very expensive.
The watch is more traditional in the choice of strap. The black alligator strap is selected, but the strap is replaceable. If you like, you can replace various different types of straps for love watches.
The folding buckle is also made of rose gold, which matches the design style of the watch.
The watch is equipped with IWC-made 51614 calibre, and its Pellaton winding system is one of the highest performance automatic winding systems in the watchmaking industry. After 1,960 operations, the spring-loaded automatic disc and the Pellerton pawl winding system can generate a full 7-day power reserve.
The highlight of the watch is a perpetual calendar with a four-digit year display, date, day of the week and month display. Each display can be easily set through the crown and automatically moves forward. The perpetual calendar only needs to be adjusted in 2100 (because 2100 is not a leap year, breaking the tradition of the four-year cycle of leap years). The Century display currently used already includes the numbers 20, 21, and 22, so it can be applied until December 31, 2299.
