IWC Pilot's Chronograph 3717-13 Luxury Watch Review

http://www.thewatchbox.com Aviation watches are a pillar of Schaffhausen-based IWC's product catalog. With an historic catalog of pilot's watches that could give Breitling a run for its money, IWC packs the heritage to confer instant credibility on models like this IWC Pilot's Chronograph 3717-13. During the early 1940s, IWC began a phenomenal run of pilot-centric product launches that endures into the 21st century. Military contract models such as the legendary Type 52 TSC and the "Mark" series of combat aviation watches serve as the inspiration for the modern Pilot's Chronograph 3717-13. While its 18-karat rose gold case is a refined nod to the modern role of the mechanical watch, its look is a throwback to the days when aviation watches were inspired by analog cockpit instruments. High-contrast is the rule on this IWC Pilot's Chronograph. A dial inspired in large part by the IWC Mark XII and XIV (there was no XIII) places a premium on large white Arabic numerals, a black base, and broad "kite" hands. All essential features of the dial are blessed with masses of luminescent paints, and the watch remains just as striking after nightfall. Aviators take note; IWC stands proudly among mechanical watch manufacturers whose "pilot" chronographs also feature robust sub-dial luminescence. IWC fits its Pilot's Chronograph 3717-13 with a caliber 79320 automatic movement based on the robust ETA/Valjoux 7750 chronograph. This battle-hardened mech has proved its mettle in everything from hardcore sports watches to grand complications. In its IWC guise, the 79320 combines a day/date function with a chronograph, hacking (stop) seconds for precise synchronization to a reference timer, and durability worthy of a high-grade heir to IWC's utility watch traditions.
