New IWC Pilot's Watch Inspired by Best Combat Pilots

Aug 05, 2007
The IWC Pilot's Watch Double Chronograph Edition TOP GUN has been inspired by the TOP GUN pilots of the US Navy, the fighter pilots that are rightfully considered to be the best in the field. The symbol of the elite American pilots is discreetly featured on the case flank of the IWC watch as well as on the screw-down titanium case back of the pilot's watch.

The IWC watchmakers opted to produce the case of the Pilot's Watch Double Chronograph Edition TOP GUN from high-tech ceramic, while the watch's operating elements are crafted in titanium. The black case of the IWC pilot's watch measures 46 mm in diameter. It is stamped with a distinctive touch of masculinity and styled as the cockpit instrument.

Relevant to the field of mechanical chronometry, the IWC watch provides the corresponding functions. The split-seconds function of the timepiece allows the measurement, with the second-accuracy, stop times together with any necessary intermediate times within a given minute. The two chronograph hands catch attention as they are designed with red counterweights shaped as the silhouette of a fighter aircraft. The black dial of the pilot's watch displays the totalizers that keep record of stop times up to 12 hours.

The latest addition to the IWC range of pilot's watches is based upon a new modern production method that results in the super-hard, non-magnetic, wear- and acid-resistant blanks. Today watch-makers are able to mould the case blanks in a more efficient and more accurate way. The blanks are baked at extreme temperatures between 1,500 - 2,000 degrees Celsius. Later they are cooled in a sophisticated process that allows the material to acquire all its supreme properties. Finally, the blanks are intricately finished while using diamond-tipped tools.

All the IWC TOP GUN watches to be produced in future will be based upon the successful mixture of ceramic and titanium for the case back and the operating elements. The case of the TOP GUN is considerably sized, still it offers the advantage of extremely low weight and comfort of wearing - the watch is secured to the wrist with help of a black nylon strap.

The IWC watch-makers provided the movement of the Pilot's Watch Double Chronograph Edition TOP GUN with maximum protection against magnetic fields. They equipped the timepiece with an inner case produced from soft iron. As for sapphire glass, it was secured with special coating on both sides to protect it against a sudden air pressure drop. The automatic movement of the IWC watch provides a 44-hours power reserve.

Read trough the IWC Pilot's Watch Double Chronograph Edition TOP GUN - Major Characteristics:
  • high-tech ceramic and titanium case

  • mechanical chronograph movement

  • split-seconds hand for intermediate timing

  • day and date display

  • small seconds with stop function

  • anti-magnetic protection

  • 44-hours power reserve

The IWC Company boasts 70 years of experience in the development and production of reliable watches for professional pilots. The 'flight qualified' IWC Classic and Spitfire pilot's watches are highly demanded among aviators and aviation fans.

The IWC Pilot's Watch Double Chronograph Edition TOP GUN marks the appearance of the third category of IWC pilot's watches, following the steps of the Classic range that has already comprised two ceramic models, and the IWC Spitfire family. The most famous examples from the Classic segment are the two pilot's watches in black with cases executed in zirconium oxide. These are the 1994 IWC Pilot's Watch Chronograph watches with 39-mm cases, and the 2006 IWC Double Chronograph watches with 44-mm cases, the latter produced in a limited edition of 1,000 pieces.

I'm a fan of aviation and Pilot's watches and I especially like the ones from the IWC Spitfire line and the new IWC TOP Gun Edition.
As these watches are quite expensive for just an amateur, I bought myself a Torgoen Swiss Pilot Computer Two Time Zone Watch. It's a really well-made watch, although moderately priced - 280 dollars. The watch has a finely brushed finish. The polished case back features an etched image of an aircraft and the Torgoen name. Great advantage is most accurate timekeeping. I also like the GMT function. The orange face of the watch is protected by a slightly domed crystal; orange face is really a bold choice for me but I quickly got used to it and get a lot of compliments on the watch. The dial is of perfect readability. In short, I'm truly satisfied with the watch. Sure, if you can afford IWC, you are really lucky

What I especially like about this IWC pilot's watch is its anti-magnetic protection due to a soft iron inner case. It's also great the watch is protected against a sudden air pressure drop. This way the watchmakers provided the watch with precision and reliability - I think these characteristics are even more important for professional pilots than the deign. Still. the watch looks really smart!

cool! their dial is really similar to the plane control panel. TOP GUN...yeh

The watch looks really glad, this one is for a real man, I mean not only the design but the materials it is made of. There is not one useless piece - like this watch a lot, great post.
posted by: Stefan / Aug 09, 2007 08:07 AM
I especially like the combination of materials IWC used for the Top Gun - high-tech ceramic and titanium...nylon strap...it's a pity the Top Gun logo is featured only on the case back - it looks great... If I had a Top Gun watch, I would take it off every minute to show the logo to everyone around...probably IWC designers didn't put it on the dial not to spoil the legibility of the watch...
