The Italian songwriter on his love for IWC.

IWC Pilot’s Watch Worldtimer. This model has been designed with Aviators and world travellers in mind and has the ability to keep track of the various time zones. The 45mm dial displays the local time with a vertical date display inspired by a traditional altimeter and a 24 hour ring which encircles the dial and allows you to read the time in all 24 hour time zones.
The time is adjusted by the crown which can go forwards or backwards and the date is in sync with the hour hand. The 23 cities on the black and white external ring each represent a time zone and standard time is centred below the name of the city. The 24 hour ring makes it easy to read off all 24 time zones, for example if it is 20.00 in London it is 15.00 in New York. In cities on daylight saving, the time can be read below the dot linked to the city name with a line. If local time is changed on the dial, the time shown by the 24-hour ring remains unaffected and the movement continues to run during the changeover.
The watch has automatic movement with a 42 hour power reserve and 32 jewels. Soft-iron inner case to protect against magnetic distortion. Secured with a black alligator leather strap with a folding clasp. Water resistant to 60 metres. 2 years manufactures warranty.
