The green accent can be seen on the dial that offers day-date functions along with a chronograph complication and an in-house movement. While we would have loved a pink and green combo matching its Miami-style theme but the watch doesn’t fail to impress with its astonishing display and luxury appeal.
The IWC Pilot’s watch offers a water resistance of 100 meters and comes with all the bits and quirks to match the elite racing sports team’s vibe. The watch uses IWC’s in-house developed caliber 69385 automatic self-winding movement with a 48-hour power reserve and 33 jewels. The IWC Pilot watch offers lightweight appeal thanks to its titanium case and light movement that makes it a perfect watch to have on your wrist. Plus the added elements of the brand’s reputation of making some of the best pilot watches come in handy if you want a luxury utility watch.
