IWC Flieger Chronograph DLC - Hands On With The Classic Pilot Chrono With A Twist

IWC Flieger Chronograph DLC - Hands On With The Classic Pilot Chrono With A Twist

This is what I love about this Flieger, a clean and closed stainless steel case back. Although IWC really puts some effort in finishing their movements, I am not very interested in seeing the movement in a watch like this. It would be something different when discussing their 7-days Portguese automatic, but this movement is a work horse. IWC refers to it as their 79320-calibre, based on the famous ETA/Valjoux 7750 movement. When wearing this watch, you will immediately recognize it as a ’7750′ based watch because of the wobble. This wobble is being caused by the heavy spinning in its free direction, as the rotor of this calibre only winds when it is moving in one direction. Movements that have a rotor that winds the spring when turning into both directions, don’t have this effect. Some people like to feel their watches wobbling a bit, others don’t.
