5 Facts about Chronoswiss

The first glass housing floor and four other special features

First, Gerd-Rüdiger Lang only repaired the watches of IWC. But as customers asked for timepieces with phases of the moon, which did not exist at that time in quartz watches, the watchmaker master began to build his own mechanical watches.

Iwc: Watch Heritage 48 Sihh

Eight-day watch in 48-millimeter format

IWC revised 2016–80 years after the introduction of its “Spezialuhr for fliers”–not only all existing pilot watches, but also introduces completely new models. One of these is the great watch Heritage 48, which IWC calls the modern successor of the Great watch of 1940. The 48 mm Titanium case is held by an extra long calf leather strap with rivets on the arm; It is divided into two parts and sewn together at the end, so that the wearer cannot lose the watch under any circumstances. A second leather strap of normal length is at the same. In the housing floor there is a small circular sapphire glass window which releases the view of a gear reserve display. It belongs to the manufactory caliber 59215 with hand lift and date, which automatically stops after eight days of endurance. The magnetic field protection of the soft-iron inner housing reduces the viewing window according to the IWC by only two to three percent. 1,000 specimens are being built; The price per copy is 14,800 euro.  Continue reading Iwc: Watch Heritage 48 Sihh
