IWC Pilot Dopplechrono Split-Second Chronograph Luxury Watch Review

http://www.thewatchbox.com In 1991, IWC released the first-ever serially produced split-seconds chronograph, the Pilot Dopplechrono. Designed by IWC complications specialist Richard Habring (Now co-founder of Austrian watchmaker Habring2), the Pilot Doppelchrono brought the once prohibitive "rattrapante" chronograph within reach of the merely rich. This example of the historic Dopplechrono features a robust 42mm yellow gold case, white dial with applied gold Arabic numerals, and a useful day-date complication. Naturally, the star of the show is the split-seconds chronograph. A "split" is a specialized competition tool that can be used to clock the respective lap/run/circuit times of two competitors - simultaneously. The ability to stop and start not one but two chronograph seconds hands makes this type of complication a favorite of motorsports and Olympic aficionados. This pristine example of the historic IWC Pilot Dopplechrono is available from thewatchbox.com with full factory documentation, user manual, original packaging and accessories. Own a piece of horological history with a serious "gee-whiz" factor that will delight connoisseurs and casual admirers alike. Video and content by Tim Mosso.
