IWC Unveils A New Watch for Lake Tahoe Enthusiasts
IWC has launched a new version of its Top Gun collection of watches. The “Top Gun Lake Tahoe” edition is the follow-up to the brand’s ceramic-cased chronograph, which was released in 2020. The new watch features the same design notes and materials as its predecessor and is undeniably striking.
The Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Top Gun Lake Tahoe comes in a 46.5mm white ceramic case with a black dial similar to the Tahoe Chrono. It features the same white rubber strap as well. The watch’s perpetual calendar mechanism is the 52615 caliber, one of the most intuitive perpetual calendars in the industry.
Big Pilot Lineup
Watches in the Big Pilot lineup are known for their chief quirk, which is wearing their size right in the name of the watch itself. The perpetual calendar complication was also blown up to a more massive size. It is said that the watch will be easier to read at 46.5mm than it would have been at 42mm.
Price and Availability
The new Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Top Gun Lake Tahoe will be available in July and will retail for $40,600.
IWC’s new Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Top Gun Lake Tahoe is a fascinating contrast in design sensibilities. It has one foot in contemporary sleekness and another in paying homage to IWC’s own history, as seen in their “normal” IWC chronographs, the ones in steel, with an altogether more sober vibe. The new watch is practical, eye-catching, and somehow more appropriate at its 46.5mm size. It’s a statement piece and conversation starter that will undoubtedly appeal to watch enthusiasts and collectors alike.
