Last time we recommend Longines watch this time we recommend another watch for you.When I came into contact with famous watches in my early years, many of the classic styles of the year had a profound impact on me. Including Rolex, Omega, Cartier, IWC, Panerai, Hublot, Zenith, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Blancpain, Glashütte Original, etc., so that I will take the trouble to keep these for me in the years to come. The next impressive style (the latest version), which includes the IWC Pilot.

Among the flight watches, I like IWC the most. There is no special reason, but the simple appearance is based on my aesthetics. In the past two years, IWC has been focusing on pilot timekeeping (flying meter), and I have bought 3 of them, namely the flying meter steel shell Spitfire, the flying meter bronze, and this flying meter TOP GUN ceramic. Among them, my favorite is this flying meter TOP GUN.
TOP GUN originally stood for the U.S. Naval Fighter Weapons School, a place dedicated to air combat training for Navy pilots. Based on this theme, IWC launched a military-style flight watch, which is IWC TOP GUN.
Since IWC TOP GUN is all watches with ceramic shells and porcelain titanium shells (porcelain titanium, that is, the titanium shell of IWC patented technology), and in the past two years, color ceramics including green, white, and sand have also been added, so As long as you see IWC with the name of TOP GUN, then it is a ceramic case or porcelain titanium, an IWC watch made of innovative materials, which has more technical characteristics than conventional models.

This IWC TOP GUN ceramic, launched in 2019, is the latest version. It uses the style of the 6 o’clock, 9 o’clock and 12 o’clock chronographs, which is unified with the conventional flying meter. For a period of time before 19 years, the pilot chronograph TOP GUN used the 89000 series flyback chronograph movement, which is a 6:12 chronograph layout. Now all of them have been discontinued and only circulated in the secondary market. You should pay attention to identifying new and old. .
Different watch brands treat the ceramic shell differently. For example, the Blancpain 50 Fathoms ceramic shell is brushed, the Omega Speedmaster Moon Dark side ceramic shell is polished, and the IWC TOP GUN ceramic shell is frosted. Feiji TOP GUN frosted ceramic case is characterized by a matte appearance. The frosted treatment is not easy to leave fingerprints and fingerprints on the case. Like the polished ceramic case on the dark side of the Omega Moon, it is easy to absorb oil and fingerprints.

However, if the IWC frosted ceramic case encounters a bump, it is easy to appear white marks on the case. Don’t worry everyone, the ceramic shell is safe and sound. This white mark is when the powder and particles on the walls of the table and chairs are left in the gaps of the frosted ceramics when they are bumped. I have carefully observed it with a loupe, and I can see the powder and particles attached to the gap of the case. Dip some more water and wipe it hard. In most cases, it can be wiped off. Be sure to work hard.
The layout of the IWC is practical and beautiful. It is very convenient to have a week and a calendar. 3 small counters, balanced and symmetrical. There are many various elements on the disk, which is more complicated and enhances the sense of technology. In terms of details, the small chronograph is decorated with record patterns, the hands of the watch have a large area of ​​luminous coating, and the hour markers are in the triangle at 12 o’clock and the long bar at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock, with luminous. Because there is an anti-reflection coating on the mirror of the watch, there will be blue light on the disk at a certain angle.
