IWC brings back Black Flieger as an online-exclusive limited edition


IWC Schaffhausen has created a modern day  limited edition version of its Ceramic Fliegerchronograph (ref. 3705) that launched in 1994.

It borrows faithfully from the nineties reference in terms of dial design, but its case has been improved with the use of Ceratanium, a new material developed by IWC that combines the lightness and strength of titanium with the look and scratch-resistance of ceramic.

Original ‘Black Fliegers’, as the 3705 became known in collecting communities, have sold for over $50,000, but the new model, made in a limited run of 1,000, can be bought for $11,900.

The power unit the watch has also been upgraded from a Valjoux calibre 7750 to an in-house 69380 automatic chronograph movement.
