We’ve received some great news from IWC Schaffhausen. The timekeeping brand is now reportedly improving the Top Gun Pilot collection with brand new and exquisite models. The three models to join the series are the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph, the Big Pilot’s Watch and the Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar. We’ve featured them in the following images, with blue, green and respectively red garnish.

Moreover, the stunning timepieces are fitted with ceramic (zirconium oxide), while the caseback and crown are crafted from titanium. Non-allergenic and impressively lightweight, the new Top Gun Pilot watches define styles of their own. The Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Top Gun Boutique Edition boasts with red indices and hands, followed by an entire array of extremely intricate horological mechanisms.

It has a 4-digit year display, 7-day power reserve and moon-phase display, while the perpetual calendar considers all the leap years according to the Gregorian calendar, until the year 2100. It is also fitted with one of the largest automatic winding movements IWC has ever manufactured – the caliber 51614, with highly accurate Pellaton winding system.

The next one, the Big Pilot’s Watch Top Gun Boutique Edition is an absolutely gorgeous mix between the styles of the 1940s and technology coming from the 21st century. It encompasses the caliber 51111, manufactured by IWC, with 311 parts and 7-day power reserve. It boasts with green indices, hands and a small silhouette of an aircraft serving as counterpoise at the rear end of the seconds.

My favorite though is the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Top Gun Boutique Edition. It seems like this is the best choice for airborne maneuvers, as complex as they can get. Staggeringly garnished with blue indices and hands, this particular timepiece comes with protection against magnetic fields and a front glass secured against drops in pressure. Powered by the caliber 89365, of IWC manufacture, it comes with a 68-hour power reserve and the looks of the ideal timepiece.
