The Big Pilot’s Watch Top Gun Story

The Big Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN features a 46-millimetre ceramic case that is water-resistant to 6 bar, nonmagnetic, acid-resistant, light and, like titanium, very skin-friendly. With its simple dial and large conical crown, this watch perhaps most closely resembles the Big Pilot’s watch from 1940, and yet it still boasts features that are more common on modern watches, such as a date display and power reserve display. The 51111 calibre, which consists of 311 components, is one of the largest automatic movements manufactured by IWC and, with its patented pawl-winding system, builds up a 7-day power reserve after only 1,960 complete revolutions of the rotor. The sapphire glass on the front has an antireflective coating on both sides and is secured against displacement by sudden drops in pressure in the cockpit.

Top Gun

Top Gun

The US Navy’s top pilots take part in the United States Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program, better known by the legendary accolade “Top Gun”. IWC Schaffhausen launched a collection of timepieces bearing this name as part of the Pilot’s Watch family, which are perhaps the most masculine models the company produces. With a black ceramic case, puristic black dial and black embossed calfskin strap, these models are instantly recognizable. The dial design for watches in the TOP GUN Miramar collection is inspired by historic navigation watches – only the minutes and seconds are printed on the outer ring, with the hours appearing in a smaller size on a central ring. Further typical features are the anthracite dial and specially embossed green calfskin strap.

Calibre Family 50000

It needs winding only once a week: the 50000-calibre family features the efficient Pellaton pawl-winding system with a 7-day power reserve and a Breguet spring for maximum precision.
