With one of the most robust catalogs of flight-oriented wristwear in the industry, the International Watch Company has become a notable name within aeronautical and enthusiast timekeeping. Now, the centurial company has partnered with one of the world’s most illustrious show squadrons, the Blue Angels, for a special chronograph.

The IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition ‘Blue Angels’ arrives in celebration of the company’s official licensing with the U.S. Navy’s revered Flight Demonstration Squadron. To commemorate the day, the unique timekeeper has been outfitted with an oversized 44.5mm black ceramic case, a 68-hour power reserve, and an IWC-manufactured 89361 calibre automatic movement outfitted with an integrated flyback function, allowing users to reset and reapply specific time measurements at the push of a button. But the watch’s inner workings are second to its aesthetic prowess. To mimic the Angels’ recognizable livery, both the dial and hands have been dressed in hues of blue, yellow, and white, providing a perfect contrast to the watch’s simplistic demeanor. Head to IWC’s website to procure one of your own for $10,900.

Purchase: $10,900
