The Junkers Ju-52 is just a German tri- transportation airplane it found both private and military support through the 1930s and 1940s. For just two ages, one has taken the IWC logo of only seven airworthy vintage JU-52s leftover global and, in the year 2000, started out on a circumnavigation of the world to promote a fresh IWC View.
Now, in honour of the flight specially proven to maintain the classic airplane aloft, the IWC Pilot’s View Chronograph Model “JU-AIR”, with a limited version of 500 watches, is ready for takeoff.
For flights in Switzerland, JU-OXYGEN, based in Based in Dübendorf near Zurich, is employed with four Ju-52’s in their navy. Helping the flight for the previous twenty years, IWC has developed a partnership with JU-air-based on a good admiration of the Junkers Ju-52 aircraft, among which happily features the IWC logo.
The tribute to the Ju-52 plane belongs to the brand that is “Spitfire”. It’s a 43 mm stainless pilot’s watch run by the selfwinding 89365 standard with 68 hours of power-reserve. This technical activity generated fully in-house, comes with a stopwatch purpose, a time display, a flyback chronograph, in addition to tiny hacking moments. The watch comes on a dark alligator band with a metal folding belt.
The watch’s dial is rhodium-plated to the Junkers Ju’s silver shade -52 airplane in reference and includes a sunburst finish. The steel Arabic numeral appliqués are filled with SuperLuminova that was white as will be the three fundamental arms. The day is seen in a large aperture. The small seconds are at 6 o’clock experiencing the 60-minute chronograph table at midday.
The stainless steel case-back has been etched using a Junkers Ju-52 and features the inscription “One out of 500” in reference to pieces for this limited edition’s number.
