About a decade ago, among the coolest IWC Ingenieur Constant Force Tourbillon watch replica watches out that there has been the TOP GUN sort of the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph — with the Double Chronograph (rattrapante) version being among the most intriguing. I remember being at an event with IWC and meeting Robin Williams there — he was wearing one of those first IWC Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph watches on his wrist — exactly the exact same timepiece he was sporting during photoshoots as seen on various magazine covers. That said, the IWC TOP GUN watch collection wasn’t only cool as an extremely cool man decided he liked to wear one.
For 2019, IWC decided to bring back the TOP GUN variations of the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph in a simple but pleasing form for the creation of watch fans. This specific version is the matte black ceramic reference IW389101, and it’s currently joined by the reference IW389103″Mojave Desert,” that is an all sand-colored variant of the identical watch. In 2020, TOP GUN two: Maverick will be released, also starring the first movie’s hero, Tom Cruise. It is not clear if there’s an official picture tie-in, however I would not find it challenging to think since IWC has a fantastic history of attempting to be set in relevant movies.
An intriguing portion of the TOP GUN story is the rivalry between IWC and Breitling — since equally have had”Top Gun” watches. Not all of the legal elements of this narrative are clear for me, but you must realize that, in the watch space, there’s a lot of territorialism when it comes to working with the same types of partners. IWC and Breitling wouldn’t be working with the exact same TOP GUN at precisely the same moment. So, what I think happened (at least in the past) is that Breitling had the right to the TOP GUN fighter pilot college logo, and IWC Replica watches had the rights to utilize the TOP GUN logo from the 1986 movie. Today, I’m not sure who is working with whom, but I can state that the TOP GUN branding about the brand new for 2019 IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN watches is much more minimized.
