For the first time ever, IWC presents a Pilot's Chronograph with a movement from the 69000-calibre family, housed in a reduced case size with a diameter of 41mm. The IWC-manufactured 69380 calibre is a rugged chronograph movement with a classic column wheel design. It displays stopped hours and minutes in two subdials at "9 o'clock" and "12 o'clock". The bidirectional pawl-winding system builds up a power reserve of 46 hours. With a stainless-steel case, black dial and green textile strap, the colors of this functional chronograph were inspired by the Spitfire's cockpit. A soft-iron inner case effectively shields the movement from magnetic fields.

Give your watch a quick check on a regular basis, wiping down the face and bracelet with a soft cloth, checking the leather on a strap, and making sure that the strap or bracelet is firmly attached to the watch face. Also, while many watches are water resistant, few are truly waterproof, so if you find that moisture or dust has penetrated the case of your watch, bring it into your local Ben Bridge store where we can have one of our watchmakers clean it out for you.

Our best advice on watch maintenance is to never attempt do-it-yourself repairs, no matter how handy you are or how good the instructions are on Youtube. Watches are super complex little machines and only an expert watchmaker should be trusted to get a watch back into working condition. Attempts by an untrained repair person may seriously damage the watch and can even invalidate factory warranties.

In general, having your watch checked regularly by your Personal Jeweler or watchmaker and serviced according to the manufacturer's guidelines should keep it in excellent shape.
