-Description

IWC reference 3705 is arguably IWC's rarest Pilot's Watch Chronograph.

Officially known as the Flieger Chronograph Keramik (Pilot's Watch Chronograph Ceramic on the official website), it was launched in 1994.

You may be familiar with the standard stainless steel Ref 3706, which was launched in the same year.

The reason for its rarity is that it was IWC's first pilot chronograph watch using black ceramic (zirconium oxide ceramic) as the case material.

This material was extremely hard, extremely resistant to cracking and corrosion, but was rarely used in watches because it was difficult to process.

This watch,known as "Black Flieger" was sold from 1994 to 1998 and, according to IWC, was produced in a limited 1,000 pieces.

Although it wasn't very popular when it first went on sale, it was a very interesting existence, and after a quarter of a century, it started to gain popularity on blogs and other media.

There is a history that it gained cult popularity by being supported not only by IWC fans but also by fans of vintage and neo-vintage watches.

As a result, the Tribute to 3705 was created in 2021 as a tribute to the 3705.

There is no doubt that it is a watch with a special position among IWC.

This original Ref.3705 has a case size of 39mm. It is 2mm smaller than the Tribute, and has a size that is not overstated.

Ceramic is lighter than stainless steel, so it's fairly light for a watch of this size.

The case back, pushpieces and crown are made of stainless steel.

The dial is a matte black dial. A traditional pilot chronograph dial with date and day display.

The tritium luminous index has changed very well. The hands have been replaced with Luminova ones when serviced by IWC in the past.

The movement is Cal.7902, which was adjusted and modified by IWC based on the self-winding Valjoux 7750.

Comes with a genuine IWC stainless steel buckle.
