Three additions to the IWC Pilot´s Watch family

Such colorful dials for sure do not represent a typical pilot´s watch. But still the three IWC’s are pretty cool watches. I personally love the extreme contrast in-between the blue, green, red and the deep black of their ceramic cases …    

The IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar TOP GUN Boutique Edition (Ref. IW502903) comes with red hands and indices, the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN Boutique Edition (Ref. IW501903) with green and the IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Boutique Edition (Ref. IW388003) with blue.

Equipped with ceramic (zirconium oxide) cases – the back and crown are made of titanium – the timepieces are extremely rugged, skin­friendly and relatively light. The three new high-flyers, which are available in limited editions at IWC boutiques worldwide, are fitted with a black soft strap.
