SIHH 2012 IWC Big Pilot's Watch Top Gun
The year of the Pilot’s watch for IWC as it is being called brings us the Big Pilot’s Watch Top Gun for 2012. This IWC is following the on going trend of black watches done in a high polish ceramic. W&R is really liking the use of ceramic in more and more watches, much more durable than PVD (that is an understatement). The Top Gun has a lot going on in a good way. There is a perpetual calendar, a whopping 168 power reserve, moonphase indicator, year shown in 4 digits just above 7 o’clock, day/date, and month, all this housed in a large 48mm case. The watch is obviously amazing, though, could have passed on the “Top Gun” aspect. Instantly reminds us of the movie, which could be good or bad. More to come on this watch later.
