IWC calls the ball (USN term for navigating a landing onto an aircraft carrier)

IWC Top Gun

The IWC Top Gun line of watches share the excitement of jets screaming through the sky, and this video captures the inspiration.  When IWC introduced its Top Gun line in 2012, they introduced a bold independent collection of pilot watches.  The newest Top Gun Miramar watches compliment the traditional Top Gun style; instead of the Top Gun contrast of white against black, they bring a new color scheme: a grey ceramic case, matte anthracite dial, an inner red hour ring, beige hands, and beige minute ring.  More than just a pretty face, all the Top Gun watches are the best worn by the best.

‘Time in Eternity, Eternity in Time’ – Max’s love of watches began as a boy with his attempt to emulate the fictional character, James Bond. With a vivid imagination and a prized Seiko (sorry Omega), the watch fever started albeit through a laughable impersonation. Having left boyish pretensions behind, the new daydreams include pilot watches and nautical watches. Classic Marine Chronometers, Dive Watches, and Nautically Themed Chronographs are first loves. Max’s interest in Reformed Theology, Jungian Psychology and Haute Horology means that Switzerland is an enduring focus.

    I don’t understand, is this article about a watch that was introduced ~2 years ago?

    Hi Gyang333,
    The Top Gun collection was indeed introduced two years ago. This week we started to create our own video library, called MonoTube, in which you can watch videos, browse, search for specific topics or brands, etc. While we’re building the collection, there will be some older videos as well, simply because they are cool videos :)
