The Big Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN (Ref. 5019) is equipped with the largest automatic movement from IWC, with a power reserve of 168hours. The division into external chapter ring and inner hour circle on the dial is reminiscent of the deck watches of the 1930s and 40s and, thus, the historical legacy of Pilot’s Watches from IWC. With its new TOP GUN, IWC Schaffhausen addresses watch-lovers who consciously celebrate the history behind the Pilot’s Watches, but do not wish to forgo the technological advances of the 21st century.

IWC is based in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, and was founded in 1868. Its signature lines are the Pilot’s Watches and the Portugieser, while other famous collections are the Aquatimer, Portofino and the Da Vinci. Many of IWC’s designs display a industrial type of beauty not often found in Swiss watchmaking. The same goes for its movements; while of very high standards, they are finished with an … engineers touch rather than that of an artist. One could very well say that IWC’s approach to watchmaking is more German in nature compared to many of its competitors; the ‘form follows function’ adagio is one held in high esteem in Schaffhausen. Notable watches and innovations created by IWC in the past include the digital ‘Pallweber’ pocket watch, the late 1930’s Portugieser, the 1985 Da Vinci with Kurt Klaus perpetual module, the split-seconds mechanism as designed by Richard Habring and the ceramic Da Vinci and Flieger 3705 – introduced many years before the material became fashionable. IWC also pioneered the use of titanium in wristwatches. In recent years, IWC has had a strong focus on in-house movements with prices rising accordingly. IWC is part of the Richemont group.
