Editor's notes

In 1994, IWC presented the ref. 3705, the first pilot's watch with a case made of black zirconium oxide ceramic. At that time, IWC was one of the first watch manufacturers to experiment with this scratch-resistant case material, which is incredibly challenging to manufacture. Despite its high level of innovation and purist design, the model was no success. It was not until about a quarter of a century later that the "Black Flieger", of which only about 1000 pieces were made, was re-discovered by watch enthusiasts. Today, thanks to its subtle neo-vintage charm, ref. 3705 is one of the most sought-after collector's items from IWC's recent history. Now, the brand is honouring this unique timepiece with the Pilot's Watch Chronograph Edition "Tribute to 3705". Just like the original relied on a pioneering material, the Tribute Edition likewise uses a material innovation from Schaffhausen: the case, chronograph pushers and pin buckle are made of Ceratanium®. This new material is as light and break-resistant as titanium, but at the same time as hard and scratch-resistant as ceramic. The dial is modelled on the original reference 3750. Stop times of up to 12 hours are displayed on two totalizers at 9 and 12 o'clock, with the small second at 6 o'clock. The in-house 69380 calibre ensures precise timekeeping. This sporty timepiece is fitted with a black calfskin strap. The special edition is limited to 1000 pieces and is available exclusively online at kennedy.com.au.
