Recently, the famous watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen released a new Big Pilot’s watch specially made for Russian gymnast Alexei Nemov. As an outstanding gymnast, Alexei Nemov won 9 gold medals, 5 gold, 3 silver and 3 bronze medals in 9 World Championships. He also won 2 gold, 1 silver and 3 bronze medals each time he participated in the Olympic Games. He won team gold medals, vault gold medals, all-around silver medals, floor exercise, pommel horses, and horizontal bar bronze medals. In 2000 he won all-around, horizontal bar gold medals, floor exercise silver medals and team, pommel horses, and parallel bar bronze medals.
The watch tailored by IWC for this time is also very individual, with the overall design of black as the main color, but the silver-grey power reserve display at three o’clock brings a bright and naughty color to the entire dark color feel. At the same time, the time scales are blue-green, and the red hands on the small dial form a strong color contrast. The white scale timescales and hands also make the readings clearer.
The case is made of 46-well stainless steel, and the black leather strap is decorated with studs.
Of course, as a special edition limited edition watch, the bottom of the watch is also presented with an engraving of an Olympic champion, and the item is uneven bars in gymnastics. This watch is equipped with movement 5111, which provides a power reserve of up to 7 days.
This watch is issued in a limited edition of 50. Alexei Nemov himself has shown an unprecedented love for this watch, and he also said that his first watch was the IWC given to him by his grandfather. At the time, the gymnast was fascinated by the shape and the feeling it brought.
