The IWC Schaffhausen brand has a new limited edition IWC Big Pilot watch for us to covet, and this time its blue! The Blue Big Pilot Limited Edition timepiece is a boutique piece which will be released in a limited series of just 50 watches to be available in a select few boutiques located in Beverly Hills, California and Las Vegas, Nevada. The watch is a duplicate of the currently available Big Pilots with the exception of the black and blue motif and the engraved case side in a non typical “One out of Fifty” pattern as opposed to the "1 of 50" count.

The "Big Blue" offers a round stainless steel case that measures 46.2 millimeters in diameter with a height of 15.8 millimeters and features a diamond-shaped winding crown. The excellent case construction accommodates an extra soft iron safety cage and solid stainless steel case-back for increased antimagnetic protection. The black dials indicators, numerals and steel hands are all crafted with a bright-blue Superluminova to guarantee supreme readability under pure light conditions. The dial displays hours, minutes and center seconds as well as a date a featured in white-on-black via a window at 6 o’clock and a power reserve indicator at 3 o’clock. The dial is protected by a scratch resistant sapphire crystal.

The IWC watch is animated by the brand’s Calibre 51111 automatic movement, the in-house movement features 42 jewels and operates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour. The movement allows for a 7-day power-reserve or 168 hours. The superb case construction allows for a 60-meter water-resistance. The timepiece is secured to the wearers wrist by a riveted black leather strap featuring blue stitching that compliments the color scheme used on the dial.
