EDITOR’S PICK: IWC get busy with the Timezoner Chronograph
Time and Tide
Editor’s Note: IWC’s new range of Pilot watches are a symphony in simplicity and an exercise in restraint – such straight-up clean dials and displays. En masse they shoot the pilot watch paradigm out of the sky. Which is why the contrast with the Timezoner Chronograph continues to titillate. The busy, function packed dashboard of a dial and neat bezel party trick sure offer another way to fly…
IWC Schaffhausen’s Timezoner Chronograph is a good-looking watch that packs an impressively technical punch. On the face of it it’s a chronograph with a worldtime function. This could have been an overly complex watch, but the reference 3950 is also one of the most user-friendly we’ve seen in a long time – featuring a clever mechanism that allows you to adjust both home time and the 24-hour second time zones with a simple twist of the bezel.
