More about Big Pilot SS / Alligator

This is a stainless steel IWC Big Pilot, IW500901. It has an alligator leather strap with a stainless steel double deployant buckle, and a scratch resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating that's secured against displacement by any large drops in air pressure. It has a solid case back and a pilot-style screw-down winding crown. The 46mm diameter solid two-body case, downturned lugs, and narrow cupped bezel are polished/brushed. The dial is black with large luminous white Arabic numeral hour markers, and baton/triangular indexes. There is a minute and second track around the perimeter, with a center sweep seconds hand. There is a date aperture window at the six o'clock position, and a subsidiary 7-day power reserve indicator dial is at 3 o'clock. The stainless-steel body encloses an anti-magnetic soft iron inner case. It's water resistant to 60 meters/195 feet, and the 15.5mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed. The mechanical automatic self-winding Pellaton-Pawl 51111 movement is rhodium-plated, with oeil-de-perdrix embellishment. It's constructed with 42 jewels, a shock absorber mechanism, and a straight-line lever escapement. It includes a Glucydur beryllium alloy balance with high-precision adjustment cam on balance arms, and a self-compensating Breguet flat balance spring. It has a bidirectional rotor engraved "IWC - Probus Scafusia - Seven (7) Days Power Reserve," and a hacking seconds mechanism. IWC's Big Pilot watch from 1940 still directly influences the design of this generation. The caliber 51111 movement is also the largest automatic movement ever made by IWC.

I have been dealing with European Watch Company for over ten years, and have purchased several wrist watches, including IWC, Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Jaeger-LeCoultre. They were not only fairly priced but arrived in like-new condition, fully warranted by European Watch Company. This company has an attentive, knowledgeable staff, a large inventory, and is a genuine pleasure to deal with.

Just completed my 7th transaction with EWC and for the 7th time the transaction was smooth, flawless and quick. Joshua is quick to respond to any e-mails and answer any questions. Ashley knows how to complete the necessary paperwork to avoid any delays at Customs as I am located in Canada and all paperwork needs to be completed perfectly which she is an expert at. You only want to deal with the best and the team at EWC is the best. There is a Yiddish word to describe the people at EWC and that word is mensches which translates to people of integrity and honour.

After a lengthy search I located the Patek Philippe I desired at EWC, but the decision to make a high dollar purchase over the internet was a difficult one. Through numerous emails with Justin and looking at reviews of EWC I made the decision to proceed and I am now ECSTATIC. The watch is exactly as described and pictured. It was perfectly packaged and shipped FedEx overnight. My watch collection now includes the watch I have been seeking for over a year.In summary, you can deal with the EWC staff with confidence. They are professional, honest and you will receive a quality watch which will put a smile on your face.

I live in San Francisco but the EWC website is the first place I check once I get an impulse for a particular watch. EWC's website is cozy and feels like home. I enjoy the photos, presentation, description and historical notes of each item and really like their next day delivery, so I stay loyal to them. Sometimes I must wait awhile for a watch to become available but can usually find anything I want. Then there are the watches you never knew you wanted until you see them here.

Dear EWC, I have just completed my very first purchase with your company: a mint Lange Datograph. Robert was extremely help throughout the process with the item delivered nicely packed to my Hong Kong address within days. The condition of the watch was absolutely mint as described and has exceeded my expectations, even under a loupe! I will be a return customer in no time. Well done!
