Although it was manufactured by the luxury watchmaker in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, the heart and soul of the new Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Top Gun Edition “Mojave Desert” was inspired from the other side of the world. To be exact, the watch pays tribute to the Mojave’s China Lake Naval Air Weapons Station – the largest single base of the United States Navy. Its 44.5mm case is composed of a striking sand-colored ceramic that is crafted to reflect the muted tones of the Mojave Desert.
The watch’s matching two-tone chronograph dial with day/date display and beige rubber strap with a textile inlay further capture the distinctive military style it pays homage to. The special edition is also designed to deliver military precision and functionality with a 69380 Calibre self-winding movement and a dome of pressure resistant sapphire glass with dual-side anti-reflective coating that can even withstand the unforgiving terrain of its namesake.
