We are proud to present this stylish IWC Pilot's Top Gun ‘STFI’ Limited Edition watch for sale.
The Pilots series of watches were designed in accordance with military specifications and nowadays have reached a cult status that few wristwatches attain. IWC’s first proper purpose-built pilots watch was produced in 1936 and followed up nearly a decade later with the MOD commissioned Mark X (the official start of the Mark series). The watch adhered to specific military requirements in terms of robustness and dial layout.
In 2018, IWC launched the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor”, which was exclusively available to graduates of the Navy Fighter Weapons School (TOPGUN). With the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Top Gun Edition “SFTI”, the Manufacture now follows up with a civilian version of this highly acclaimed timepiece and is produced in a worldwide Limited Editon of 1500 pieces.
This version the reference IW3891-04, comes in an ergonomic 44.5mm brushed black zirconium oxide ceramic case with a smooth matching matte bezel. The dial is a crisp black colour with large luminous contrasting Arabic numerals and dagger hands. The dial is finished off with a legible white day/date aperture at 3 o’clock and triple chronograph sub-dials at 12/6/9 and is protected by a domed sapphire crystal glass. There is also a red ‘navy jet’ counterweight on the split-second hand, as well as a matching red running second hand on the 6 o’clock counter. It is powered by the IWC calibre 69380 automatic movement and comes fitted on a green ‘textile’ strap.
Originally purchased in November 2021 and in unworn condition, this IWC comes with its original inner & outer boxes, cleaning cloth, instruction booklet and international warranty card. This IWC is under warranty until November 2023 (extendable).
