The Pilot Story IWC Influenced the cockpit-instrument look of classic pilot's watches during the 1930s and 1940s. The white triangular index at "12 0'clock" allowed pilots in the cockpit to instantly recognize the position of the hands and the time at a glance. The upright equilateral triangle has two dots at either side to make the dial easier to read, and is also luminescent. The black dials of cockpit instruments with their contrasting, luminescent displays has been the inspiration for the cockpit design of classic Pilot's Watches for decades. The dial is reduced to the bare essentials, with striking luminescent hands and numerals that stand out against the matte-black background. The striking conical crown of the Big Pilot's watch harks back to the pioneering days of aviation, when pilots had to face the elements in unheated cockpits. The original Pilot's Watches had particularly large crowns that were easy to grip so that they could be set and wound by a pilot wearing thick gloves and a padded light suit.
