Focusing on its most beloved collections this year, IWC Schaffhausen unveils new Top Gun watches that offer an array of materials, colors and sizes. The biggest news is in the new Top Gun editions, Lake Tahoe and Woodland Green ceramic. It takes months and months to develop a new color of ceramic and to produce the ultra-hard, light-weight material in a case.
While IWC has released its Mojave Desert watch in khaki colored tan to match the desert, the Woodland Green is an all-new drab green that looks anything but drab. There is nothing quite like the look and feel of ceramic and putting it out there on this beloved watch in this military-like color is bold. Almost as bold as releasing an IWC Top Gun watch is Lake Tahoe white ceramic.
Both of these colors made their debut on the opening day of Watches & Wonders Geneva. At the same time, the Big Pilot’s Watch 43 Top Gun in black zirconium oxide ceramic makes its debut – and is the first Top Gun Big Pilot in a 43mm size.
Additionally, the brand uses the show to release its new Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 Top Gun Ceratanium(TM) — the first 41mm chronograph in this collection to be created in full Ceratanium(TM). This composite material that combines ceramic and titanium in a proprietary formula is also highly scratch resistant, light in weight and skin friendly.
