The Italian songwriter on his love for IWC.

IWC Pilot’s Chronograph Top Gun. The distinctive 46mm ceramic case of this Top Gun Chronograph comes with rugged-looking push-buttons and a soft strap giving it a masculine yet comfortable appeal.
The black dial has a cock-pit style design with enhanced readability by having luminescent white numerals, ‘propeller’ style hands and a date display inspired by a traditional altimeter. The chronograph functions include a minutes and seconds stopwatch and a flyback chronograph hand. There is an independent small seconds display. The centralised second hand has a silhouette of a jet and shows recorded time in seconds, whilst the sub-dial at 12 o’clock displays the number of elapsed minutes. Internally the model features an IWC calibre 89365 automatic chronograph movement with 35 jewels and a 68 hour power reserve. The movement is housed within a soft-iron inner case which protects against magnetic fields which would otherwise disrupt the watches accuracy. Screw-in crown with push-buttons and a Top Gun motif on the case-back.
Water resistant to 50 metres. Comes with a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty.
