Is the IWC Pilot Replica Watch Automatic Top Gun still the Cool Cat?

Is this contemporary, black ceramic interpretation of the world’s most famous war watch actually the coolest iteration to date? Is the predecessor of the Famous Mark XI Copy Watches now the cool cat of the collection?

The Top Gun’s movement, calibre 32110, is an ETA 2892 base, and the Classic’s calibre 35111 is based on the Sellita SW300, which is… indeed, practically the same.

Despite the minimal factual differences between the Top Gun and its Classic brother, there’s definitely something about the IWC Pilot’s Copy Watch Top Gun that gives it a little more presence on the wrist. It’s just a bit cooler, more masculine, more contemporary.

That’s partly because the case is 1mm bigger. But it’s the black ceramic case that really makes the difference. That matte black is just cooler, more modern and amplifies its tool Swiss Replica Watches character. This is one watch that goes perfectly well with that jeans-and-T-shirt-look, or that stands out during your rolled-up-sleeve-meeting at the bar.

The caseback is titanium with the famous TOP GUN logo engraved in the centre. The crown screws down and allows the case to be water-resistant to 60 metres. The dial is protected by a domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides, which is protected against displacement from sudden drops in air pressure.

The watch is standard delivered on a NATO strap, which of course is a cool choice, but also an odd one. First of all, NATO straps are quite cheap and the Top Gun is definitely not a cheap replica watch.
