John Mayer has had a long and storied relationship with IWC, and especially its Big Pilot watch. It was one of his first high-end luxury watches, and he wore it so often his tour managers nicknamed him “Big Pilot.” Mayer considers the IWC Big Pilot as his gateway watch into the collecting world, and now he’s known as a true watch aficionado. A few years back, Mayer published an amicable yet critical letter in HODINKEE to IWC which was met with fervor on both sides. Well, John now looks back at the letter in this new video from HODINKEE, and talks about how his personal relationship with the watch brand has grown since then. He also shows off his extensive collection, further cementing his unofficial ambassador status.
