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 didnâ€™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.
The minutes are shown on the subdial at “12 oâ€™clock” and the hours are shown at “9 o’clock”. The red hand showing the small seconds at “6 oâ€™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.
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).
