  • Catalogue Essay

    - The United States Navy Fighter Weapons School, famously known as "Top Gun," was established on March 3, 1969, at Naval Air Station Miramar, California. In 1996, it relocated to Naval Air Station Fallon in western Nevada.

    - Since 2007, the Top Gun line has been an integral part of IWC's Pilot's Watch collection. Over the years, the lineage has evolved from classic date functions to include sophisticated complications such as split-seconds chronographs and perpetual calendars.

    - Returning to the essence of a pilot's watch, the collection's appeal lies in its large case size and oversized crown. In 2013, IWC introduced the present reference as a tribute to the legendary air station.

    - Encased in robust black ceramic, this timepiece boasts a large 48.6mm diameter, practical date function, and an impressive 7-day power reserve. It is accompanied by all of its accessories, meticulously preserved, and represents the perfect combination of masculine design and advanced Swiss technology.
