About this watch

This stunning and possibly unique IWC Big Pilot ref IW500401 is in as new condition and benefits from the previous owner having the watch professionally DLC coated to the highest standard I have seen; the complete watch has been coated black including the intricate pilots oversize crown and case back and the effect is stunning and far superior to the original steel finish.

DLC Coating or Diamond like Carbon giving it its full title gives the watch not just a stunning appearance but also superior durability with increased resistance to scratching.

The 46mm case holds a black dial with amazingly clear large Arabic hour markers and arrow hands sat under an anti-reflective sapphire glass, a reminder of the original military pilots needs for easily legible dials.

The remarkable automatic cal 51110 movement has an impressive full 7-day power reserve.

Originally manufactured around 2012 the watch would pass as factory fresh and comes fitted to its IWC Alligator strap with black deployment clasp which are in equally pristine condition.

The watch is supplied in an IWC travel pouch and complete with watch register certificate and our 12-month mechanical warranty.

This piece is in stock and ready for worldwide shipping.
