My Blue Portugieser Perpetual Calendar and the Pilot's Watch Timezoner Chronograph. The PPC was my largest IWC before and I didn't think I would get a Big Pilot. The PPC was big enough. But when I saw the Timezoner, I had to give it a try - and I love it.
But it is a Big . . . Pilot. The interesting bezel shrinks the dial down a bit, making it appear a bit smaller. It is 46 mm in diameter like a Big Pilot. It is about 1.3 millimeter thicker (16.8 mm) than my Portuguese Perpetual Calendar (15.5 mm). So it does have “presence.”
Reminded me of vintage Tudor Blue Snowflake Subs. The blue is more navy in color than the Pelagius, almost grey-blue? Even the markers look more creamy than white. The size (39 mm, relatively thin) and weight with bracelet make it feel very light and easy to wear. I have the original BB 58 in black
