Have you ever handled a watch made of high-tech ceramic? We suggest that you do. Its surface feels soft, almost velvety. Lift it up and you’ll notice that its case is exceptionally light and scratch-resistant. Add some color to the ceramic, and you’ll be looking at a watch of jaw-dropping vibrancy. This is not a coincidence: IWC is considered as one of the early innovators in ceramic watchmaking since the launch of the black and white Da Vinci Perpetual Calendars (Ref. 3755) in the 1980s. For the COLORS OF TOP GUN, our specialists took inspiration from the forest green uniforms worn by elite pilots and the wintery landscape around Lake Tahoe.
