Product Details

The IWC Top Gun Chronograph was developed using robust and corrosion-resistant materials such as ceramic and titanium for the elite among the US Navy's jet pilots. IWC has equipped this classic with an in-house movement from the 69000-calibre family.Apart from its stopwatch function, the IWC-manufactured 69380 calibre also has displays for the day and date.

During tortuous manoeuvres involving supersonic jets like the F/A-18, pilots are subjected to high G forces, but also extended missions on aircraft carriers, where they are exposed to the humid, salt-bearing sea air, put an enormous strain on both personnel and material. The corrosion resistant black matte ceramic and pressure resistant case provides the perfect tool watch for such journeys. 

The red small seconds hand at "6 o'clock" provides a striking colourful highlight on the black dial. The case is made of-non-reflective black zirconium oxide ceramic, the back of the case from titanium. The watch is attached to the wrist with a black textile strap.
