The IWC takes to the skies with color, and some serious black

There is the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Top Gun Edition “Woodland” in dark green ceramic, and the Edition “Lake Tahoe” in white ceramic. Both are 44.5mm cases.

Then there is the all-black Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 Top Gun Ceratium, with a perhaps more manageable 41mm case made of the IWC developed material called… Ceratanium. The color of which is called, by Pantone, IWC Ceratanium.

You could go with the “Jet Black” (a real Pantone-specified color called IWC Jet Black) Big Pilot’s Watch 43mm Top Gun which uses 43.8mm black ceramic case and a titanium caseback but whose indices and hands are a bit more contrasting against the black dial. Also it isn’t a Chronograph while the other three new watches are.
