IWC Schaffhausen’s Top Gun tribute series to the 1986 film has become one of the watch brand’s most popular lines within the Pilot collection since its introduction in 2012, making the unveiling of the Mark XVIII Top Gun Miramar at this year’s SIHH watch fair a natural progression. Encased in a 41mm ceramic case, the timepiece stays true to its Miramar lineage with a minute and seconds on the main chapter ring and hours on the inner red chapter ring. This mirrors the historical need for military and aviation-geared watches to accurately display seconds, which were crucial to determining location in an era before advanced aviation tools. Powered by an automatic caliber 30110 with a 42-hour power reserve, the case is also shielded to electromagnetism to reduce interference with cockpit instruments. An embossed green calfskin leather strap frames the timepiece, which was designed to emulate the nylon NATO straps of the military.
