This IWC Chronograph Fuses Military Cool and Serious Watchmaking

We’ve seen ceramic watches before, but this new sand-colored special from IWC takes the cake for its killer, mil-spec looks.


This week, the Palexpo facility in Geneva, Switzerland, will become the center of the watch world for the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, or SIHH, a luxury watch show rivaled only by BaselWorld in relevance and prestige. We’ve got a team on the ground, there to bring you the most exciting releases. Follow our coverage here, and also be sure to check out Instagram. We’ll be posting to our feed throughout the week.

We’ve seen quite a few cool releases from IWC’s pilot’s watch lines at this year’s SIHH, including the Top Gun and Spitfire collections. One of the most popular, however, is proving to be the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Edition “Mojave Desert.” This limited edition pilot’s chronograph’s case is made from a new sand-colored ceramic inspired by the Mojave Desert, where the U.S. Navy tests weapons. Given the love we’re seeing for this watch, we thought you might enjoy a few more angles, provided below — with any luck, we’ll be seeing more releases from IWC in the future that utilize this awesome new look.
