Franz Mattes IWC-HomepageIWC pilot's watches
There are only a few interesting and high quality websites about IWC pilot watches. All the more remarkable is the website of Franz Mattes, a passionate watch enthusiast from Esslingen.
On his privately operated website http://www.fliegeruhr.ch/, he gathered many useful information and advices for fans and collectors of IWC pilot watches. In addition to great background images and test reports, there is an overview of IWC pilot watches in movies. The night pictures of the IWC pilot watches are excellent as well. Currently there is a very interesting article on the IWC Collectors Meeting SIHH 2007 at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie.
The list of many IWC pilot watches with all technical data and pictures is unique as well. In addition, his link tips are really outstanding for providing a very good overview of many informative websites, from the German-speaking website of Konrad Knirim, who is probably the most renowned military watch connoisseur, to international links and many interesting forums about IWC watches.
