IWC Big Pilot’s Perpetual Calendar Top Gun Watch
The IWC Big Pilot’s Perpetual Calendar Top Gun Watch earns the name for several great reasons. The first is the size of this classic pilot’s watch. It is a full 46 millimeters in diameter and 16 millimeter thick. Why is it bigger? Because that is how you make a watch the autowinds in minutes and stores 168 hours of reserve power making you ready to anything. The watch’s 7 days of power is made even more interesting by the system IWC added. The watch shuts off instantly at the end of 168 hours to make sure it never slows down due to losing power. The watch is as accurate on the first tick as it is on the last one.
This watch is tough. It has an outer stainless steel case and an inner iron core. The iron core adds strength and eliminates effects of magnetic fields making it an excellent watch for pilots and other navigators. IWC has hit another homerun with the tribute to the Big Pilot’s Watch that has been popular for 70 years. The watch retails for just over $38,000.
