A new member decided to join the Pilot family 😍

Feb 28, 2020,15:14 PM

Finally got a call from the IWC boutique today. It’s the only piece coming to Beirut. I’ve placed the order back in SIHH 2019 and chose my individual number 😉 

The sand color ceramic is so unusual. It’s a love or hate affair. I personally find it so beautiful and especially when you have many other variations. It would blend in perfectly with the others. Definitely not your daily beater. More of a funky weekend watch if I may say

Here it is after 13 months of wait!

Hope you like it! 

Have a nice weekend everyone,

Now that is AWESOME!

I love it. I would put it on black canvas w/ sand stitching. BAM.

I was thinking sand canvas with light brown stitching matching both the case and dial [nt]

It was originally released with a sand cloth/canvas strap

Not sure why that changed: ...

Yeah I know. Was in SIHH and tried it on

 By: Makilla : February 28th, 2020-16:33
Fell in love with the canvas strap. Apparently they switched to rubber instead in order to avoid fast strap aging. Light color canvas will get dirty and age in a matter of weeks ...

Well at least they fixed the day/date...

Background with the matching dial color.😆

Definitely one of the more interesting pieces released last year. Congrats.

 By: Jay (Eire) : February 28th, 2020-18:35
As some others have said, I’m not sure what they did with the strap originally presented. It does need something else, and perhaps a contrast might be good. Looking forward to more pictures of this one.

Thanks for the kind words! I am already trying to find a nice strap.

 By: Makilla : February 29th, 2020-08:00
Will definitely post new photos once the new strap is on

Congratulations to this absolutely unusual watch!

 By: jkvs : March 1st, 2020-05:36
The ceramic is stunning, maybe unique. To make things round you might look for a leather strap that matches the color of the dial... That would be a killer combination 😊

Cool one, Laurent. And great strap, too! Bravo. [nt]
