IWC Big Pilot Patrouille Suisse

Recommended Posts

It has been a while since I have bought my last rep because I have started collecting Mil watches, and my focus for the last 6 months was on them. 

But I was still looking at reps, and when I saw a very nice rep of a Big Pilot on RWI I had to buy it.

This was a IWC Big Pilot Patrouille Suisse made by ZF. Compared to the gen there are a lot of differences, but it is still a very nice watch. (I really like the sandblasted case)

 

GEN:

Looks great! I like the grey sunburst dial very much.

 

It's a big watch, 46mm excluding the crown? 

 

Looks like you already switched straps?

It is indeed a big watch, but it does not feel that big and heavy. The rep strap is replaced by a Donerix strap which looks so much better.

The sandblasted crown is replaced by a SS crown from another BP, like on the gen.
