The IWC Pilots collection was created as a tribute to the Top Gun legend, the pilot’s school of the US marines in Miramar, California. It was in this school, between the years 1969 and 1996, that the reputation of the fearless Elite pilots spread all over the world. The collection is designed exclusively for men, who are adventurous and like the military pursuits. The collection is a unique combination of beauty and useful functionalities. Each aspect of the collection bears a sporty and robust spirit.
The IWC Pilots IW388002 case material is designed with Titanium, whose size is 46 mm and is round in shape. The strap material of the watch, keeping in with military design in mind, is made of fabric and is green in colour. Similarly, the dial of the watch is anthracite in colour. The dial of the watch has a 60 second sub-dial located at the 6 o’ clock position, and 60 minute sub-dial located at the 12 o’clock position, along with the date window, which is located at the 3 o’clock position. The hour marker on the watch is embedded with the index markers. The watch has a screw in crown. The Pilots IW388002 is designed keeping in mind the military and sport ethics.
The glass of IWC Pilots IW 388002 is made with Sapphire to save it from scratches and damages. The anti-reflective coating on both the sides of the glass helps in protecting the watch from sun glare, and sustaining its look at the same time. There is a soft-iron inner case in the watch to protect it from the magnetic fields. The watch is powered with self-winding automatic movement, and carries an impressive power reserve of 68 hours. This stunning timepiece is made water-resistant to a depth of 60 metres, which means that the watch can easily cope with chanced splurges of water. This timepiece is a gem for those who want the best of the military look, and elegance too.
Pocket watches used by pilots were the norm when aviation first became a science. IWC soon changed that by revolutionising wristwatches wholly modelled for pilots. In 1936 the first special Pilot’s watch was introduced into the market, fitted and customized only for the pilot’s convenience. In 1940 the world was introduced to the Big Pilot’s watch which was a classic rendition of a cockpit design in an aircraft. The equipment was laid out in accordance to the placing of instruments in a cockpit. This was soon followed by IWC’s cleverly engineered Mark XII which was crafted as a tribute to the Royal Air force in 1948 and has been loved and used for more than 2 score years till date.
The first few editions of the Pilot's watches were crafted with sound and pleasing aesthetics. Built with a clean and simplistic look in mind, the watch had a rotating bezel with an arrowhead index to help keep track of short periods of time as well as an antimagnetic escapement incorporated in it. The luminescent hands and numerals provide high contrast and great visualization. These luxury time-pieces have bold, rugged straps that embody the spirit of the adventurer. Sapphire glass in highly polished form is used in the making of these time-pieces to provide resistance to air pressure. This is purely a traveller’s watch. Many outstanding modifications and improved movements have been implemented in this collections design since 2012. The cases are made from a variety of dependable and fashionable material such as rose gold, stainless steel and ceramic. The dial comes in individualistic colours including black, blue, silver and brown, pampering customers till they are spoilt for choice.
The IWC’s Pilot's watch family welcomed in its midst a fresh new edition - the Top Gun watch, named in honour of the special training course offered by the United States Navy Fighter Weapons School, the ‘Strike Fighter Tactics instructor’ which has been famously dubbed ‘Top Gun’. Five new intricately designed models of the Top Gun collection came out to the fore in 2012, more than enough for Top Gun to delineate and become an independent line altogether.
