2012/04/02 - Christopher Ward the C8 Pilot Mk II - U-2 Vintage Edition

Based on the iconic IWC B-Uhren watch of 1940, the C8 PVD black Vintage Edition takes the already retro feel of the Mk 2 Pilot to another level with the introduction of military beige "old Radium" superluminal hands and indexes.

The soft iron anti-magnetic movement surround, fine automatic movement and unique case design are all as the original C8 Mk II. However, we have introduced a distressed leather feel to the substantial strap that further enhances the nostalgic mood this watch evokes.
