IWC Big Pilot's IW5004 and IW5002 Watches
The IWC Big Pilot watches are becoming known for their quality and distinctive look. Unlike many luxury watch manufacturers, IWC has no problem putting large numbers on the faces of their watches to make sure the owner can see what time it is. There are no Roman numerals or indistinctive dots on these watches. All you see is big numbers and bold hands to show you where your attention needs to be placed. The date dial and the day display are also very clear and easy to read. The IW5004 model and the IW5002 model make it very easy to use your luxury watch as a timepiece as well as a showpiece. The IW5004 model is a men's watch with a case made of brushed, stainless steel. There is no mistaking the shine of a stainless steel watch, but it could also pass for platinum in the way that it is presented. The band is black alligator leather, which makes it elastic but extremely durable. The back and the front of the watch are solid and do not allow for a peek at how this watch really functions. But with the elegant design of the face, there is no need to see what is inside. It is water resistant down to a depth of 60 meters and crystal is made of a scratch resistant sapphire material. In short, the Big Pilot's IW5004 watch is a sports watch that has all of the fine craftsmanship of a luxury watch. While the IW5002 is part of the Big Pilot's family with the IW5004, the IW5002 gives a completely different look than the IW5004. IWC has replaced the crocodile leather with calfskin leather for the strap which makes it a softer feel. The watch case is still stainless steel with a bold, black face and large hands. But the look of the watch is completely altered by the different strap. As with the IW5004 model, the IW5002 is water resistant down to a depth of 60 meters and has a crystal made of scratch resistant sapphire. The IW5002 gives a more formal look but retains its luxury appeal and its sporty disposition. The Big Pilot's line of luxury sport watches by IWC is definitely turning heads. There are subtle differences between each model that make them all worth investigating. The chances are very good that you will find a Big Pilot's watch that appeals to your sense of style and your need for durability in the same product.
