IWC Pilot’s Chronograph Top Gun Edition ‘Mojave Desert’ Watch

Jan 21, 2019

Category: Gear

IWC’s watches are revered for their amazing quality, intricate designs, and undeniable durability — three characteristics that are omnipresent in every new release the company unveils. Their newest watch, the Pilot’s Chronograph Top Gun Edition “Mojave Desert,” incorporates the rugged utilitarian style that’s synonymous with the brand’s tactical wristwear offerings and matches it with one of the most iconic military flight schools of all time.

The Mojave features a handsome sand-colored ceramic case that comes complete with an automatic, self-winding 69380 calibre movement and Swiss internals that are housed underneath a convex sapphire glass face. A bidirectional pawl-winding system allows the watch to build a generous 46-hour power reserve, while the robust chronograph provides a precise, high-performance movement. The watch’s 21-millimeter beige textile strap pairs nicely with the chronograph’s etched case back, which features a brilliantly designed homage to the China Lake Naval Air Weapons Station, the single largest landholding belonging to the U.S. Navy. Only 500 of the limited edition, zirconium oxide watches will ever be made, so pick one up before they’re gone for good.
