The TOPGUN model, which came out in 1940, has established a set of design standards and has been in use ever since. The modern style combines the sports design of the TOPGUN navy air combat series, as well as the classic instrument shape. Its white minute circle with arrow hour marks contrasts with the matte black dial. Today’s Watch House will bring you a real shot of the IWC TOPGUN navy air combat perpetual calendar watch, the official model is: IW502902.

Its Pellaton winding system is one of the highest performance automatic winding systems in the watchmaking industry.
The model introduced before 1940 has established a set of design standards and has been in use ever since. The modern style combines the sports design of the TOPGUN navy air combat series, as well as the classic instrument shape. Its white minute circle with arrow hour marks contrasts with the matte black dial.
The ceramic case and titanium crown are thought to have their roots in traditional technology from Schaffhausen. As early as the 1980s, IWC used titanium as the case material and pioneered the use of ceramics in watchmaking. Its 48mm case is fixed to a soft black strap, which is not only durable but also comfortable to wear.
The watch is designed with a soft cloth strap and a stainless steel pin buckle, which is not only durable but also comfortable to wear.
This watch has a high-tech ceramic case, which is durable. The thickness of the watch has also reached 16 millimeters. Such a thickness cannot be controlled by ordinary people. This watch is not a person who picks a watch, but a watch.
Two small contour windows on the moon phase display at the ’12 o’clock’ position indicate the moon phase status in the northern and southern hemispheres, respectively. In each lunar month, which is about 29.5 days long, the watch mimics the change of the lunar orbit only about 12 seconds.
This perpetual calendar watch is equipped with a four-digit year display, date, day of the week and month display. Each display can be easily set through the crown and automatically moves forward. The perpetual calendar only needs to be adjusted in 2100 (because 2100 is not a leap year, breaking the tradition of the four-year cycle of leap years).
The watch strap is open and closed, and the stainless steel sandblasted folding clasp is designed to be safe and comfortable to wear.
It is equipped with IWC-manufactured 51614-type movement, and its Pellaton winding system is one of the highest performance automatic winding systems in the watchmaking industry. After 1,960 operations, the spring-loaded automatic disc and the Pellerton pawl winding system can generate a full 7-day power reserve.
Summary: This IWC TOPGUN Navy Air Force Perpetual Calendar watch is a new watch released by IWC in 2012. The European price is 34,600 Euros. For such a price, I think it is worthwhile to buy a IWC Perpetual Calendar watch .
