The father's and the son's timepieces share some common features:
- The rhodium-plated dial in a silvery shade is characterized by supreme legibility.
- The onion-like screw-in crown suggested by the IWC early pilot's watches provides supreme user-friendliness.
- The brown crocodile leather strap with distinctive steel rivets adds a touch of reserved stylishness.
- The case construction of the IWC watches incorporates anti-reflective convex sapphire glass specially secured against displacement caused by a sudden drop in air pressure.
- The IWC watches boast 6-bar water-resistance.
