IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN PRESENTS ITS FIRST 41-MILLIMETRE PILOT’S CHRONOGRAPHS IN CERAMIC AND INTRODUCES “OCEANA” COLOR
At the Watches and Wonders exhibition in Geneva, IWC Schaffhausen introduced its first 41-millimetre Pilot’s Chronographs in ceramic.
The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 TOP GUN “Oceana” features a case made of blue ceramic, developed in collaboration with Pantone® and inspired by the color of the U.S. Navy’s working overalls. The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 TOP GUN is IWC’s first 41-millimetre Pilot’s Chronograph with a “Jet Black” black zirconium oxide ceramic case.
Both timepieces are powered by the IWC-manufactured 69380 calibre, an extremely robust and reliable mechanical chronograph movement.
With “The Colors of TOP GUN,” IWC introduced a collection of Pilot’s Watches in colored ceramic in 2022. It consisted of chronographs in striking new shades, such as IWC Lake Tahoe white and IWC Woodland green, developed in collaboration with Pantone®. The Swiss luxury watch manufacturer now adds two chronographs in a compact and easy-to-wear case diameter of 41 millimetres to the line-up. This marks the first time IWC offers the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 in a case made of ceramic – an extremely hard and scratch-resistant performance material.
The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 TOP GUN “Oceana” (Ref. IW389404) features a case made of blue ceramic. The ceramic color “Oceana” was created with Pantone®, an IWC partner and a global authority on color.
The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 TOP GUN (Ref. IW389401) is IWC’s first 41-millimetre Pilot’s Chronograph in black ceramic. Its “Jet Black” ceramic, inspired by the technical components of supersonic jets, has been the signature material of IWC TOP GUN since the line was established in 2007.
Both chronographs are powered by the IWC- manufactured 69380 calibre.
