In addition to launching the new “Lake Tahoe” and “Woodland” editions in white and green ceramic, IWC completes the Top Gun collection with the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 Top Gun. The watch marks the first 41mm chronograph in the collection and takes off in Ceratanium, an IWC development, which is as light and robust like titanium, while similarly hard and scratch-resistant like ceramic.
In addition to offering outstanding material properties like reduced weight and high scratch resistance, the most striking feature of Ceratanium is its matte-black color, which IWC and Pantone have specified as “IWC Ceratanium”. The dark and slightly metallic shade results from a unique manufacturing process: it develops on the surface of the material when the case components are fired at high temperatures in a kiln.
Subdued white print and luminescence on the black dial and black hands underscore the all-black, stealthy design of this timepiece that is powered by the brand’s 69385 caliber. This chronograph movement which amasses a power reserve of 48 hours is visible through the tinted sapphire glass case back. The timepiece is fitted on a black rubber strap with a textile inlay.
Pricing for the new IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 Top Gun is currently marked at $12,600.
