In 2002, IWC launched arguably the most identically built, beautifully crafted and cleverly civilized ( thanks to the 46mm diameter ) watch among the long list of B-Uhren inspired models; IWC Big Pilot 5002-01 Slow beat..

The case is designed in classical B-Uhr form with a perfect finishing as is to be expected from IWC. It’s 46mm diameter is more than enough for the ultimate wrist presence while making the watch quite wearable.

The case is a bit on the thicker side with 15mm height due to the anti magnetic shielding under the solid case back but that does not hurt the balance of the watch at all. It also avoids the classic and large onion shaped crown from digging in to your hand when bent backwards.

The satin brush finish still looks flawless though our Big Pilot was obviously not a safe queen for the past decade or so. The solid case back looks quite neat and military.

The large dial’s lay out resembles strongly with the classic B-Uhren design. Large and white colored Arabic numerals over black surface offers maximum readability almost in every situation thanks to it’s luminous fillings on the numerals and hand set.

I would like the date wheel color combo in white over black for better blending with the dial but it’s just my personal preference, never a flaw.

The IWC Big pilot has been powered with IWC’s in-house caliber 5011. This 7 day power reserve beats at 2.5Hz making the second hand’s tick quite visible.

The Caliber 5011 also features the highly praised Pellaton Winding System, originally designed by the IWC Technical Director, Albert Pellaton in the 1940’s. Unlike the standard caliber design, the movement of the rotor is not transmitted to a wheel train via a gear system but, through a cam which increases the durability of the rotor wheel.

The Big Pilot comes on a beautiful Buffalo leather strap which looks pretty classic and feels extremely comfortable on the wrist. The classic thumbnail type buckle fits the strap and the entire character of the watch perfectly.
