Thanks to its reduced case diameter, the watch is also more attractive for customers with a slimmer wrist.
For the dial, IWC's designers have opted for a clean, simple look.
The Top Gun logo is engraved in the titanium case back.
The power reserve display shows the time remaining until the movement comes to a standstill.
With their black, cockpit-style design and attractive mix of materials, the TOP GUN watches have carved out a name for themselves. The Top Gun logo on the reverse side is now engraved on the case back and is considerably more understated than the colour imprint. It is likewise impossible to imagine the Pilot’s Watch squadron without the military-look TOP GUN Miramar line, whose dial design was inspired by historic observer’s watches. Both watch lines are now supplied with an embossed black or green calfskin strap. In the case of the Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar TOP GUN, the embossed calfskin strap is the only significant modification over last year’s model. The case diameter of the Big Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN models is now reduced by two millimetres and there have been slight modifications to the dial design. In the case of the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN and the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Miramar, the ceramic case has been reduced to 44 millimetres. The designers have made the dial easier to read with the addition of a simplified date display. The analogue display of stop times between one minute and 12 hours is now found at “12 o’clock” in a totalizer that can be read like the time of day. Times under a minute are recorded by the central seconds stop hand. The new Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII TOP GUN Miramar has a case measuring only 41 millimetres in diameter and is powered by the automatic 30110-calibre movement.
The Big Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN has convenient modern features like power reserve and date displays. Comprising 311 parts, the IWC-manufactured 51111 calibre has a patented pawl-winding system that builds up a seven-day power reserve after just 1960 full revolutions of the rotor. The sapphire glass has an anti-reflective coating on both sides and is secured against sudden drops in pressure in the cockpit.
With its tachymeter scale, rugged IWC-manufactured 69375 calibre and functional, 1950s-inspired design, the Ingenieur Chronograph is an altogether fascinating timepiece.
