IWC Schaffhausen Pilot's Watch Automatic Top Gun
Tortuous manoeuvres with supersonic jets like the F/A-18 Hornet, and missions lasting months on an aircraft carrier: the demands placed on personnel and materials by naval aviation are incredibly high. TOP GUN watches are manufactured using robust, corrosion-resistant materials, such as ceramic and titanium, specifically for the unusual needs of the US Navy's flying crews. The Pilot's Watch Automatic TOP GUN is equipped with the IWC-manufactured 32110 calibre. The robust and reliable automatic movement has bidirectional pawl-winding that builds up a power reserve of 72 hours. With a diameter of 41 millimetres, this sporty watch is housed in a case made of non-reflecting, black zirconium oxide ceramic and fits perfectly on any wrist.

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 ...
