Introducing The Final Piece Of IWC’s Big Pilot Perpetual Calendar Toto Wolff

by Mark Knight

Oftentimes, it can be quite frustrating when a watchmaker unveils a new watch… Only for you to find that it’s been sold out. Nevertheless, I can somewhat forgive them if it’s being done for a good cause, however. That goes for this new IWC Big Pilot Perpetual Calendar Toto Wolff. It was announced quietly by IWC and is built with a highly limited 100-unit production run.

Yet, you can’t buy them anymore. Or at least, there’s still technically one piece left. Numbered 50 out of 100, this is the last one that you can buy, which is to be auctioned by Bonhams. The proceeds will go to the Ignite charity. The latter was founded by 7-time F1 World Champion, Lewis Hamilton, and the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team to help build diversity in racing.

Bigger, Bolder, And More Green

But, what is this watch, anyway? Well, for all intents and purposes, it’s an evolution of IWC’s equally-cool Big Pilot Perpetual Calendar Top Gun Ceratanium. This means that this big-boy watch carries an impressive movement in the back. There’s a Pellaton winding system, that’s then paired with a mighty Kurt Klaus-developed perpetual calendar movement.

This makes for a pretty busy dial, featuring your typical hours, minutes, and small seconds. It then combines those with a power reserve indicator, and a perpetual calendar with a date, day, month, year, and a moonphase, as well! The only difference from the Top Gun watches is that sapphire crystal, skeletonized and transparent dial, as well as its bold Petronas green accents.
