PRECISION INSTRUMENTS WITH COCKPIT-STYLE DESIGN

The Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar TOP GUN, the Big Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN and the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN combine the black-and-white instrument look of the classic Pilot’s Watches with the sporty design of the TOP GUN line. The cases made of black zirconium oxide together with the crown and push-buttons in titanium underscore IWC Schaffhausen’s pioneering role as one of the first companies in the watchmaking industry to use these materials. In the Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar TOP GUN, the IWC-manufactured 51614 calibre with a 7-day power reserve drives a plethora of watchmaking complications. The perpetual calendar with displays for the date, day, month, year in four digits and perpetual moon phase takes into account all the leap years in the Gregorian calendar until 2100. The in-house 51111 calibre found in the Big Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN likewise builds up a power reserve of 7 days after just 1960 complete revolutions of the rotor or after being fully hand-wound. No Pilot’s Watch collection would be complete without a chronograph with down-to-the-second precision. Among the TOP GUN models in traditional cockpit design, this role falls to the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN. As only fitting, it comes equipped with an IWC-manufactured movement in the form of the further improved 89365-chronograph calibre. A soft-iron inner cage protects the precision movement against magnetism.
