Following the launch of the new TOP GUN collection at Watches and Wonders in the spring, IWC Schaffhausen continues to introduce refreshing new colours around the wrist. The Swiss manufacturer of luxury watches is proud to present a new version of the Big Pilot’s Watch 43 in a stainless-steel case with a dial-in “racing green” and with matching rubber straps. The brand is also introducing a new range of colourful rubber straps. Thanks to the EasX-CHANGE® system, they can be fitted to many of IWC’s Pilot’s Watches, making the collection even more versatile than ever before.

2022 is a year of colour at IWC Schaffhausen. In April, the Swiss luxury watchmaker launched the “Colors of TOP GUN” collection, featuring chronographs in striking green and white ceramics. Now IWC is unveiling the new Big Pilot’s Watch 43 (Ref. IW329306). This Big Pilot’s Watch impresses its green dial and matching rubber strap. The unique shade of green was inspired by the “racing green” colour used to paint British racing cars since 1903. The rhodium-plated luminescent hands make the dial easier to read at night. The IWC-manufactured 82100 calibre powers the movement, and it features a Pellaton winding with ceramic components and a power reserve of 60 hours.

In addition, IWC is also introducing a carefully curated selection of coloured rubber straps. These exceptionally durable straps, which can be worn in any situation, will be available in ten colours: black, blue, red, brown, yellow, green, grey, orange, light blue and olive green.

“We noticed that our customers increasingly want to personalise their watches, add a fresh touch or express their personality.

Our coloured rubber straps add a playful element and give the collection even more versatility. Our customers have a choice of colours and can choose the one that best suits their style or their current mood,” explains Christian Knoop, Chief Design Officer at IWC Schaffhausen.

The new coloured rubber straps also feature IWC’s EasX-CHANGE® system, which means they can be fitted to most Pilot’s Watches from IWC with this system. As a result, these timepieces are always the perfect companion for summer – whether you want to take a quick dip in the sea during your holiday or prefer to lie by the pool.

The new Big Pilot’s Watch 43 is available exclusively online at and in IWC boutiques. The watch is eligible for registration under the My IWC Care programme and benefits from a six-year extension to the standard two-year international warranty.
