The Big Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN Miramar and the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Miramar are a tribute to the birthplace of the Top Gun legend, the pilots’ school of the US Marines in Miramar, California. It was from here, between 1969 and 1996, that the reputation of the intrepid elite pilots spread all over the world. The unusual division of the dial into an external chapter ring and an inner hour circle found in both timepieces recalls the deck watches of the 1930s and 1940s, and thus the historical legacy of IWC’s Pilot’s Watches. Likewise inspired by military-style design are the shimmering metallic grey of the ceramic case, the beige hands and chapter ring, as well as the green textile strap. The in-house 51111 calibre found in the Big Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN Miramar – the largest automatic movement made by IWC – has a convenient 7-day power reserve. The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Miramar with its flyback function owes its 68-hour power reserve to the IWC-manufactured 89365 movement. A soft-iron inner case protects the chronograph’s precision movement against magnetism. An elaborate Top Gun engraving embellishes the backs of both Miramar models.
