IWC Schaffhausen Big Pilot's Watch Top Gun
The Big Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN features a 46-millimetre ceramic case that is water-resistant to 6 bar, nonmagnetic, acid-resistant, light and, like titanium, very skin-friendly. With its simple dial and large conical crown, this watch perhaps most closely resembles the Big Pilot’s watch from 1940, and yet it still boasts features that are more common on modern watches, such as a date display and power reserve display. The 51111 calibre, which consists of 311 components, is one of the largest automatic movements manufactured by IWC and, with its patented pawl-winding system, builds up a 7-day power reserve after only 1,960 complete revolutions of the rotor. The sapphire glass on the front has an antireflective coating on both sides and is secured against displacement by sudden drops in pressure in the cockpit.

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®. Preferring the principle of “form follows function” over decoration, the Swiss watch manufacturer’s timeless creations embody their owners’ dreams and ambitions as they journey through life.
IWC sources materials responsibly and takes action to minimize its impact on the environment, creating intrinsically sustainable timepieces that are built to last for generations. The company prides itself in training its own future watchmakers and engineers, as well as offering an excellent working environment ...
