IWC Schaffhausen introduces new watch for the right wrist

IWC Schaffhausen introduces new watch for those who like to wear it on their right wrist

IWC Right Hander watchAugust 9, 2019: In a first for the brand, IWC Schaffhausen has presented a new version of its Big Pilot’s Watch to be worn on the right wrist, known as the Big Pilot’s Watch Edition “Right-hander”. 

It has a generously proportioned case diameter of 46.2 mm, and the same eye-catching design seen throughout the family, which imitates easy-to-read cockpit instruments. The twist in this revised edition is the positioning of the crown, which is located on the left-hand side of the case. The “Right-hander” is much more practical to operate for those who wear their watch on the right wrist

Driven by an IWC-manufactured 52010 calibre, the “Right-hander” has a stainless-steel case with a soft-iron inner case, which protects the movement against the effects of magnetic fields. The automatic Pellaton winding is fitted with ceramic components and builds up a seven-day power reserve in the twin barrels.

The strap is crafted in black calfskin leather. The slate-coloured dial features a power-reserve display situated at “9 o’clock”, a small seconds hand at “3 o’clock”, and a date display at “6 o’clock”. The luminescent indices and hands guarantee optimum legibility.

The new watch - released as an edition of 250 pieces - is available at IWC boutiques and authorised retailers from August 2019 with three months exclusivity in Australia and France.
