Dedicated to air force professionals, the IWC Pilot’s Top Gun IW388001, is crafted like the cockpit of a fighter jet. This timepiece dons a case completely fashioned out of titanium polished in black. The black polished bezel embodies a black texture dial, featuring optimised essentials to adorn the face of the dial with a touch of simplicity. White Arabic numerals with 4 appliquéd stick indices are engraved on the dial as the hour markers of the watch. The minute’s track is etched out on the outer rim of the dial in white. Black toned hands with white central fill, along with the central hacking second’s arm, presents the dial with beautiful detailing.
The black textile strap is customised to fit your wrist perfectly. You can easily wear and remove this timepiece using the deployment buckle, which has been added for maximum wrist comfort and strap security.
Featuring self winding automatic movement, the IWC Pilot’s Top Gun IW388001 offers an impressive 68-hour power reserve when fully wound. Its vertical date window, located on the 3 o’ clock position of the dial, resembles the altimeter on the Jet cockpit. Thanks to its soft iron core, the watch holds great immunity against magnetic fields, and sudden drops in air pressure. With a water resistivity of 60 meters, this timekeeper can easily withstand accidental splashes of rain. The scratch resistant Sapphire crystal safeguards the dial from external damage. A black screw-in crown resting on the bezel regulates the dial motion of hour and minute hands for precise time keeping. It features 2 sub dials employed for the stopwatch function with minutes and seconds on 12 o’ clock, and 6 o’ clock position of the dial respectively.
This IWC’s Pilot’s time keeper pays tribute to special training course offered by the United States Navy Fighter Weapon’s School’s “Strike Fighter Tactics” Instructor, inheriting the famous pet name i.e. “The Top Gun”.
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.
