Witnessing the roaring jets of the Blue Angels jet fighters flying through the air is an experience burned into the memories of any crowd that has seen the spectacle. The daring maneuvers exhibited in each show are performed by pilots who are some of the very best in the world. While you will likely never be a get into the cockpit to go along for the ride, you can wear the IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Blue Angels” on your wrist to at least look the part. The watch was inspired by the blue and yellow design of the legendary fighter jets.
The deep blue colorway of the dial is encompassed beautifully by a 44.5mm case. The watch offers a whopping 68-hour power reserve thanks to its automatic, self-winding 89361 chronograph movement that is built in-house by IWC. This Blue Angels-inspired pilot watch features a flyback function, calfskin strap, and easy to read yellow hands against a blue dial that combine perfectly to emulate the Blue Angels’ own color scheme.
