A new limited edition boutique timepiece is on the horizon for IWC, the Big Pilot Perpetual Calendar in Orange. One year since the brand introduced their first IWC Big Pilot Perpetual Calendar watch, created for the Swiss-based Bucherer network of luxury boutiques, they are doing it again - but this time with a bit of orange thrown in the mix. The previous limited edition had only 100 pieces created, 70 in stainless steel and 30 in gold. The new "orange" edition will be produced in a slightly larger run of 250 and (its believed) only in stainless steel.

The Big Pilot Orange Perpetual Calendar has a 46 millimeter round stainless steel case and a stainless steel bezel. The timepiece is powered by movement Caliber 51613 with an automatic Pellaton winding system, 62 jewels, and beats at 21,600 vph. The movement allows for a power reserve of 168 hours or 7 days, shown by an indicator at the 3 o'clock position. Along with hours, minutes and seconds the watch displays day, date, day of week, month, four digit year and moon phase. The black dial is accented by large orange and small white markers. The case is secured to the wearers wrist by a black alligator strap with complimentary orange stitching.
