IWC has been producing a special series of watches designed to meet the demanding needs of elite jet pilots. Established as an independent collection within the IWC Pilot’s Replica Watches US family in 2012, the TOP GUN series has become renowned for its use of hi-tech materials and stealth, military-inspired styling.Now, it’s time to turn our attention to the slightly more unusual Chronograph TOP GUN Edition.
The sandy hue of the 44.5mm x 15.7mm case is achieved by combining zirconium oxide with other metallic oxides. The Luxury Replica Watches matte finish gives it an almost plastic-like quality in appearance.
While it does feel light and comfortable, it’s also very apparent that it’s extremely robust and well made. The Swiss Replica Watches caseback is in titanium and features the famous TOP GUN logo engraved in the centre. The screw-in crown and chronograph pushers meanwhile are titanium, like the standard Chronograph TOP GUN.
Inside, and protected against magnetic fields by a soft-iron inner case, is the 69380 IWC Replica-manufactured calibre. Designed and developed in conjunction with ValFleurier, this automatic movement features a column-wheel chronograph as well as a pawl-winding system, which winds in both directions, delivering a power reserve of 46 hours.
