IWC Schaffhausen introduces two new chronographs in coloured ceramic. The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Edition Lake Tahoe is equipped with a white ceramic case and a black dial.

The watches have an IWC-manufactured 69380 calibre, a robust and reliable chronograph movement with a column-wheel design.

The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Edition Woodland combines a dark green ceramic case and dial with pushers, crown and a case back in matte black Ceratanium. Both watches are powered by the IWC-manufactured 69380 calibre movement.

Lake Tahoe has a 44.5-millimetre case in white ceramic, a deep black dial and black hands coated with luminescent material.

The annual production of the new models will be limited to 1,000 pieces per edition. Christian Knoop, IWC’s Chief Design Officer stated: «The colour of uniforms and the fascinating landscape views admired by pilots have inspired our new chronographs. In an unprecedented engineering process, we have developed two completely new ceramic colours, Lake Tahoe White and Woodland Green, and meticulously matched all other components of the watches to these new shades».
