Debuting right at the dawn of the funky 1970s when the Swiss watch industry would go somewhat design mad chasing rapidly changing tastes and fashions, the Yacht Club manages to be at once cutting edge and traditional. Making full use of the sweeping lines of the C-shape case, variations of which are also found in contemporaneous Omega Constellations and Heuers automatic Carrera, the Yacht Clubs heavy steel case is a perfectly proportioned 36mm X 44mm. Thats much bigger than the rather medium-sized C-shape Connie and obviously not as big as Heuers macho racing chronograph, so where it ends up is exactly in the same size bracket as Rolexs evergreen, the Datejust. And thats really the best analog and probably the exact watch IWC were gunning for. For if the Datejust was the icon of a never-changing design standard, the Yacht Club aimed to offer the same sort of elegance but with a bit of an avant garde twist for the modern man.
