Three watches by IWC will be on show at Harrods from 18 February for two weeks: the Big Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Top Gun (with blue SuperLuminova dial) the Big Pilot’s Watch Top Gun (with green SuperLuminova dial), and the Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Top Gun (with red SuperLuminova dial). These models will be exclusive to Harrods, and they will be available for purchase in July 2013.
The Big Pilot's Watch Chronograph Top Gun is very striking, with its blue SuperLuminova dial, and a 46 millimetre case in ceramic and titanium, soft black strap, two practical chronograph pushers, and the characteristic date window. On the back the watch features the Top Gun logo, and the edition number, one out of 500. Retail price £10,250.
The Big Pilot’s Watch Top Gun has the classic pilot's watch simplicity, with green SuperLuminova, and a large size at 48 millimetres. This is also a 500-piece limited edition. £14,250.
The Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Top Gun is a beautiful combination of the pilot's watch aesthetic with a perpetual calendar display on four subdials including phases of the moon. The year is shown on a four-digit display near 7 o'clock, months on the lowest subdial, days and small hacking seconds on the left subdial, date and power reserve (seven days) on the right subdial, and double moon phases for northern and southern hemispheres on the top subdial. Probably the most complex pilot's watch ever made, this model was launched in 2012 as part of the "pilot's watch year," and it rapidly became a classic of its type. Its technical characteristics include protection against changes in air pressure, and 6-bar water resistance. This limited edition of 250 piece retails at £30,250.
