Navigating the Professional Pilot’s Watches Program

Emerging from IWC’s collaborative synergy with the U.S. Navy, the Professional Pilot’s Watches Program is a testament to the Swiss watchmaker’s dedication to crafting specialized timepieces for jet pilots. The genesis of the Pilot’s Watch Automatic 41 Black Aces (Ref. IW326905) draws inspiration from a pilot’s watch designed for members of the renowned Strike Fighter Squadron 41 (VFA-41), recognized as the “Black Aces.” Stationed at Naval Air Station Lemoore in California, the squadron’s origins trace back to 1950 at NAS Oceana. Affiliated with Carrier Air Wing 9, they bear the radio callsign “Fast Eagle.”

LumiCast Brilliance and Collaboration

The luminescent marvel of the fully luminous white LumiCast dial is a collaborative creation with the pilots of the “Black Aces.” LumiCast, a concentrated Swiss Super-LumiNova, can be meticulously shaped and sized in three-dimensional forms, a result of an intricate manufacturing process. This process involves blending superior Super-LumiNova pigments with a binder, casting them into a circular mold, and subsequently hardening through a curing procedure, imparting ceramic-like durability. The solid disc is then seamlessly integrated onto the soft-iron dial blank. It is adorned with black indices, numerals, and the distinctive “Black Aces” patch, resembling the ace of spades from a deck of cards. The dial’s luminosity, emitting a radiant greenish light for over 23 hours in dark chamber assessments, is a testament to its brilliance. The perpetual absorption and release of light energy, without aging or compromising its luminous capacity, define this innovative creation.

A Sleek and Stealthy Design

The 41mm case of the timepiece is meticulously fashioned from black zirconium oxide ceramic, a material IWC pioneered in the 1980s. Recognized as one of Earth’s most robust substances, ceramic’s qualities – lightness, hardness, and scratch resistance – render it ideal for the demanding environment of a jet cockpit. Furthermore, its matte-black hue prevents sunlight reflections, ensuring seamless focus for pilots. The caseback, composed of lightweight yet durable titanium, features an engraving portraying the Black Aces’ twin-engine jet against an intriguing backdrop of spades.

Precision in Motion: The Heart of Innovation

Driven by the in-house 32100 caliber automatic movement, this watch demonstrates unwavering precision. Bolstered by the anti-magnetic silicon escapement within a soft-iron inner case, it effectively combats magnetic fields. The innovative double pawl winding system achieves a substantial 72-hour power reserve within the mainspring. Adorned with a black textile strap featuring a sand-blasted stainless steel pin buckle, this timepiece melds comfort and functionality with sophistication.

Review New Replica IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN For 2019

One of the coolest IWC watches out there was the TOP GUN version of the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph – with the Double Chronograph (rattrapante) model being among the most interesting. I recall Robin Williams used to wear one of the original IWC Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph watches on his wrist. For 2019, IWC decided to bring back the TOP GUN versions of the Pilot’s Watch in a simple but satisfying form for today’s generation of watch lovers, IWC Pilot Chronograph TOP GUN Black Ceramic Watch replica IW389101, and it is currently joined by the reference IW389103 “Mojave Desert,” which is an all sand-colored version of the same watch.

Black Ceramic Case

IWC uses a 44.5mm-wide matte black ceramic case for the IWC Pilot Watch Chronograph TOP GUN replica, and the result is rather handsome looking for 2019. IWC was an early adopter of ceramic as a case material, but it didn’t always use entirely ceramic cases, rather ones that were coated over metal. The matte black ceramic case is water resistant to 60 meters. The 2019 models have no TOP GUN branding on the case sides or the dial, and instead has the TOP GUN logo engraved in the steel caseback. 

Black Dial

The minutes are shown on the subdial at “12 o’clock” and the hours are shown at “9 o’clock”. The red hand showing the small seconds at “6 o’clock” adds a splash of colour to the black dial with white numbers and indexes. One of the few “flairs” is the red-colored subsidiary seconds dial. The IWC Pilot TOP GUN Men’s Watch replica has both a chronograph function and a display for the day and date. 

Textile-style Strap

IWC paired IWC Pilot TOP GUN replica to a textile-style strap in black that is lovely to look at, the strap is thick and lined with black leather for added durability and probably comfort. The strap is not, however, very pliable. The good news is that a basic black-and-white-style watch like this TOP GUN will look great on a large number of strap options.

Differences With Older TOP GUN

The 2019 IWC Pilot Chronograph TOP GUN replica has a number of minor differences compared to the older models. One that enthusiasts will probably enjoy is the more simplified date (not the open date) window on the dial. 

Another change is the move to a more fully in-house movement with the calibre 69000. This movement is designed to be similar to the Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750, which the original TOP GUN Chronograph watches had. The 69000 has a column wheel as part of the chronograph assembly, and it has a dual directional pawl winding system, which basically just means that the automatic rotor winds the watch no matter which direction it turns in. A lot of mechanical automatic watches have a rotor that only winds when it turns in one direction.


The Edition “Mojave Desert” version of the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN with is khaki-colored ceramic case is priced at $9,100 (nearly $2,000 more than this black ceramic version). As the latest model, we are designing, here is a similar model, Replica IWC Pilot Double Chronograph Watch IW377801.
