IWC - Big Pilot’s Watch Constant-Force Tourbillon Edition “IWC Racing” IW590501

Featuring IWC’s patented constant-force mechanism, the Big Pilot’s Watch Constant-Force Tourbillon Edition “IWC Racing” offers a striking look inspired by the technical world of motorsport.

Limited to 15 pieces, this unique timepiece comes in a 46.2 mm x 13.5 mm matte black Ceratanium case that houses the hand-wound 94800 Calibre, one of the most complicated mechanical movements designed in Schaffhausen. Ceratanium is a special alloy developed by IWC that is light and robust like titanium but also hard and scratch-resistant like ceramic.

Integrated into a tourbillon, the constant-force mechanisms disengages the escapement from the direct flow of power through the wheel train and transmits completely even impulses of energy to the escape wheel. In conjunction with the tourbillon, which compensates for the negative influences of gravity on the oscillating system, this ensures a highly accurate rate. The frequency of the constant-force tourbillon has purposely been set at 2.5 Hz (18,000 vibrations per hour) to enable the system to wind the balance spring once every second.

The plates and bridges are fully blackened having undergone an elaborate rhodium-plating process to match the colour of the case. The movement, which is reminiscent of an engine block, can be viewed through the sapphire glass back.

Looking at the dial, the eyes are drawn to the constant-force tourbillon at 9 o’clock. Then, in a clockwise direction, we find a double moon phase display for the northern and southern hemispheres and below, at 4 o'clock, the 96-hour power reserve display, somehow reminiscent of a tachometer.

The dial is completed by large hands filled with Super-LumiNova, white numerals and yellow-coloured accents. 

Matched to a black rubber strap featuring an inlay made of Alcantara and waterproof to a pressure of 6 bar, the new Big Pilot’s Watch Constant-Force Tourbillon Edition “IWC Racing” ref. IW590501 has a price of CHF 220,000. iwc.com
