Versions Top Gun is a classic Pilot collection of IWC since 2007. Boxes of ceramics, black matte spheres with a similar to a cockpit design, propeller type needles … are some of the features that all come to mind. This 2016, the Top Gun line returns with some modifications in the design of its three models; the Perpetual Calendar, Chronograph, and his flagship and we will talk today, the Big Pilot’s Watch (or Big Pilot).
This new reference (IW502001) is presented with a size slightly more content than its predecessor (IW501901), from 48 mm to 46. Still a size most forceful, urging its readability and handling, but these 2 millimeters are appreciated less , especially longitudinally, facing those who have the rather narrow wrist.
In its sphere, as happened with the new Mark XVIII, to their usual Arabic numerals great readability, even in this new edition, add the presence of 9 absent in previous editions. In addition, the indicator triangle with two white dots located at 12 is no longer integrated into the minute hand, if not that is framed above the IWC logo.
Looking ahead to prevail clarity of the sphere, IWC has ignored the small plane in red as a counterweight in seconds, using the target for the whole needle instead of only to the end. Moreover, the indicator reserve remains located at 3 o’clock and date window occupies its usual place at 6 o’clock.
Another interesting novelty is found in the belt. We say goodbye to the textile belt in favor of a calf leather strap engraved in black. Aesthetically, the differences are minimal, but the doll itself will note that favor greater robustness durability.
The fund has also been modified, regardless of the color print logo Top Gun and opting for a more discreet engraving. Inside still beating manufacture caliber 51111, one of the largest IWC automatic movement with a power reserve of 7 days.
This new edition of the Big Pilot’s Watch Top Gun is approaching the maximum the original model 1940, with a smaller field and with its characteristic large conical crown, and its amendments, although slight, only make further improve the model. Its price; 14,900 euros.
