A double chronograph with a black zirconium oxide ceramic case and titanium case back marked the birth of the TOP GUN line in IWC Pilot’s Replica Watches family. Since then, using different materials have been a hallmark of TOP GUN models, adding to the identity of this line.
They have traditionally featured some classic ‘identifiers’, such as the use of matte black ceramic cases.
Most Successful IWC Replica also introduced the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Edition “Mojave Desert”, the first TOP GUN model in sand-coloured ceramic.
Now, in 2022, IWC is adding two new chronographs in white and green ceramic to the TOP GUN Pilot’s Watches collection – the Most Impressive TOP GUN Edition “Lake Tahoe” Replica which has a white ceramic case, stainless steel pushers and crown, titanium case back, and a black dial with black lumed hands. The strap is white rubber strap with a folding clasp.
The TOP GUN Edition “Woodland” comes in the newly developed dark green ceramic case, green dial, black hands, and pushers, crown and case back in matte black Ceratanium®. It comes on a green rubber strap with textile inlay and pin buckle.
Both of the new Best Replica Watches are 44.5mm with a thickness of 15.7mm and a water resistance of 60m.
Behind the engraved case backs of both of these new models is the IWC Replica vs Real automatic Calibre 69380 column wheel chronograph movement, which beats at 28,800 VPH and has a power reserve of 46 hours.
The use of classic military colours in the TOP GUN line goes back to the Miramar models with anthracite dials and olive green straps. The flight suits of naval aviators have inspired the distinctive shade of the 1:1 Pilot’s Replica Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Edition “Woodland” (Ref. IW389106).
