IWC present at the SIHH 2012

The year of the pilot’s watch at IWC

We will start showcasing highlights of the SIHH, Baselworld and Geneva time exhibition little by little, as we will probably be hearing its roar in terms of timepieces all year round. Today we hear a bit more on the 2012 timepieces for IWC. 

With five new models, the Top Gun collection establishes itself as an independent formation within the IWC Pilot’s Watch family. The year’s high-flyer is the Top Gun Miramar: a tribute to the place in California where the myth of the elite pilots was born.

Careful thought was given to the aesthetics. The gray ceramic case and the matte anthracite dial combines to produce a tough yet refined military look. Camouflage colors such as beige for the hands and chapter ring, together with green for the strap, heighten the effect. 

The textile strap borrows from tough fabric webbing belts. It is complemented by two high-tech materials, typical for Top Gun, that were introduced to watchmaking by IWC as early as the 1980s: zirconium oxide for the case, along with titanium for the controls and the watch back.
