The Junkers Ju-52 is really a German tri- transportation airplane, made of 1932 to 1945, it observed both military and civilian assistance during the 1930s. Of only nine airworthy classic JU-52s remaining worldwide, the IWC emblem has been maintained by one for just two decades and, within the year 2000, started out on the circumnavigation of the globe to promote a new IWC View.
Today, in honour of the flight particularly proven to retain the classic plane aloft, the IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “JU-AIR”, using a limited version of 500 watches, is not unready for takeoff.
With four Ju-52’s in their fleet, JU-AIR, located in Based in Dübendorf near Zurich, is used for flights in Switzerland. Helping the airline for your prior two decades, IWC has grown a partnership with JU-air-based on a shared respect of the Junkers Ju-52 aircraft, one among which proudly demonstrates the IWC brand.
The honor for the Junkers Ju-52 aircraft belongs to the “Spitfire” line. It’s a 43 mm stainlesssteel pilot’s watch run from the self winding 89365 calibre with 68 hours of power reserve. This movement that is physical developed totally in-house, comes with a date display, a function, a flyback chronograph, along with small hacking moments. The watch comes on a dark alligator band with a metal folding buckle.
