IWC Schaffhausen Pilot's Watch Mark XVIII Top Gun Miramar
The Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII TOP GUN Miramar is closely based on traditional military watches. Optimum legibility of the seconds and minutes was absolutely vital for these watches, which is why their outer rings often only depicted these two values, with the hours appearing in a smaller size on a central ring. The Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII TOP GUN Miramar has a case diameter of 41 millimetres and is driven by a 30110-calibre automatic movement with a power reserve of 42 hours. The ceramic case, water-resistant to 6 bar, is equipped with a soft-iron inner case for protection against magnetic fields. With its protection against magnetic fields and a front glass secured against displacement by sudden drops in pressure, the watch takes up a tradition established by its forebear, the Mark 11 of the 1940s.

In 1868, the American watchmaker and entrepreneur Florentine Ariosto Jones travelled from Boston to Switzerland and founded the ‘International Watch Company’ in Schaffhausen. His visionary dream was to combine advanced American manufacturing methods with the craftsmanship of Swiss watchmakers to make the best pocket watches of his time. In doing so, he not only laid the foundation for IWC’s unique engineering approach but also established the centralized production of mechanical watches in Switzerland.
Over its 150 year history, IWC Schaffhausen has developed a reputation for creating functional complications, especially chronographs and calendars, which are ingenious, robust, and easy for customers to use. A pioneer in the use of titanium and ceramics, IWC today specializes in highly engineered technical watch cases manufactured from advanced materials, such as titaniumaluminide and Ceratanium®.
