IWC UNVEILS BIG PILOTS WATCH SHOCK ABSORBER XPL

Schaffhausen, 7th April 2021 IWC Schaffhausen has presented the Big Pilot's Watch Shock Absorber XPL at the digital Watches and Wonders exhibition, the first watch to feature the brands patented new shock absorber system. Developed over eight years, th...

From IWC and points to a new and interesting design direction. Well done IWC.

Finally something entirely fresh

Great to see, I would be keen to try that one on I wonder - should a manual-wound watch not be much sturdier in the case of shocks?

This watch looks like a G-Shock to me

I really really like this in concept

Design aesthetics and pricing aside, I love this. My issue with the normal Big Pilot was always that it looked tough but really wasn't. Finally we have a tough case, real water resistance, tough movement, etc. so the content has caught up with the image.

Technically

I would love to see what is left of the watch after a 30,000 G shock... Does the watch still tick? The first technical pilot watch by IWC for a while if I am not mistaken. Best, E.

Good dial...
