IWC "Tribute to 3705"

Online ExclusiveFor Those Who Missed The 90s.

Relive the 90s with the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Tribute to 3705". IWC Schaffhausen travels back in time to honour the legendary "Black Flieger" (ref. 3705) from 1994. After fading into obscurity for almost a quarter of a century, it became a cult classic and is now considered one of the most sought-after models from IWC’s recent history.

The new tribute edition faithfully replicates the original’s dial design. Instead of using ceramic, however, it features a case made of Ceratanium®, a groundbreaking new material developed by IWC. Powered by the in-house 69380 calibre and fitted on a black calfskinstrap, this special edition is limited to 1000 watches and sold exclusively online.

From Zirconium Oxide Ceramic to Ceratanium®

The "Black Flieger" was pioneering in the use of black ceramic, and the tribute edition likewise features a recent innovation from IWC’s material scientists: the case, chronograph pushers and pin buckle are made of Ceratanium®, an IWC-developed material that is light and robust like titanium, but also similarly hard and scratch-resistant like ceramic.

Powered by the in-house 69 Calibre

While the original ref. 3705 was powered by the Valjoux calibre 7750, the new Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Tribute to 3705” boasts sophisticated movement technology from Schaffhausen. Inside the 41-millimetre case, the in-house 69380 calibre is at work. This robust and precise chronograph movement in classic columnwheel design is one of the latest developments from IWC’s engineers. A bi-directional pawl winding system reliably builds up a power reserve of 46 hours.
