  • Catalogue Essay

    IWC presented three boutique editions for the Top Gun Big Pilot collection in 2013. These special editions were made specifically for the IWC boutiques around the world. This present Big Pilot’s Perpetual Calendar Top Gun wristwatch is one of the most complex pilot’s watches ever manufactured. It features a perpetual calendar, digital year display, 7 days power reserve and moon phases. The design is inspired by the cockpit instrument displays found in jets. Cased in light and scratch-resistant ceramic, the dial glows in red at night. The displays are clearly visible with the bold red hands and numerals and the complications are easily adjusted through the crown.
    The present model is the first of a limited edition of 250 pieces only and the watch is offered in unused condition.
