Brand: IWC Schaffhausen
Collection: IWC's Colors of TOP GUN
Editor's Notes: IWC adds new colors to its classically durable timepieces with the drop of its latest styles “Woodland” and “Lake Tahoe”.
Following the drop of its “Mojave Desert” watches, IWC finds further inspiration in the variety of nature’s design, as they retain a uniform look and incorporate more organic accents, such as rubber strap detailing and matte ceramic cases. While IWC’s military-inspired watches are known for a strict “form follows function” policy, these new styles take on an aesthetic so fresh that they’ve got us questioning if they may be the exception. Meet IWC’s newest players below.
IWC Pilot’s Watch “Woodland” Chronograph features all of the sophistication of the historic brand while flexing modern design. Taking direct inspiration from the flight suits of naval aviators, the Woodland’s deep green color covers its dial and strap, exuding a strong yet subdued look. The watch incorporates technical details such as the power to withstand sudden drops in air pressure and an increase in water resistance.
IWC Pilot’s Watch “Lake Tahoe” Chronograph looks exactly how it sounds. This model is personified by wintertime around the freshwater lake – its off-white color is even dubbed “IWC Lake Tahoe”. The snowy mountainous area provided the perfect inspiration for the piece as it is frequently flown over by members of the TOPGUN School. Finished off with a titanium caseback, this watch is made as much for style as it is for performance.
IWC Mojave Desert completes the trio by taking inspiration from yet another US terrain. The timepiece’s sand-colored case, including a distinct embossment on the rubber band, gives the watch a monochromatic look reminiscent of the vast ecosystem itself. Head’s up: if you feel particularly drawn to the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN Edition “Mojave Desert”, you better act fast – only 250 of these models will be produced per year.
