IWC Top Gun – a successful spot landing
IWC, based at Schaffhausen, is a leader in the field of pilot's watches and when it launched the IWC Top Gun watch in 2007, it surpassed itself. IWC Top Gun watches were originally designed for the elite jet pilots of the US Navy. Thanks to the use of robust and corrosion-resistant materials, they not only stand up to tough manoeuvres at sea but also to damp and salty air. The IWC Top Gun is crafted from Ceratanium. Developed by IWC, this revolutionary material, combines the best properties of titanium and ceramic. This pilot's watch represents a spot landing in all respects so why not see for yourself?
A watch that revolutionised the industry
Take off with Ceratanium
With IWC's development of Ceratanium, titanium and ceramic merged into an incomparable material. Titanium delivers lightness and resistance to breakage while the matte black ceramic impresses with its ability to prevent sunlight reflection. The innovative Ceratanium combines the best properties of both materials, making it possible to manufacture all add-on parts such as pin buckles or pushers in a completely black design without the need for a coating.
A technical feat
The IWC Top Gun also impresses from a technical point of view. A chronograph caliber with automatic winding of the 69000 family ticks away inside the watch. The power reserve is approximately 44 hours and water resistance is guaranteed up to 6 bar. Keep on top of everything: use the stop function to track hours, minutes and seconds and thanks to the displays, the date or week can also be read at a glance.
The challenges of magnetic fields, sudden pressure drops and other dramas pose no problems for the Top Gun series: the soft-iron inner case protects the watch from magnetic field radiation while the curved glass bottom with anti-reflective coating resists any drops in pressure.
IWC Top Gun – timeless design meets functionality
With the IWC Big Pilot Top Gun Chronograph Edition, you can choose between the classic model in a black case with a red accent at six o'clock or the beige 'Mojave Desert' version, limited to 500 pieces. Featuring great attention to detail, the colour of the 'Mojave Desert' watch was inspired by the Mojave Desert in California, home to the US Navy's largest base.
