Case Size 44.5 mm
Case Material Ceramic
Dial Color Black

The materials of the watches listed are traditional. The case is made of high-hardness zirconia ceramics. The diameter of the watch is 44.5 mm and the thickness is 15.7 mm. The ceramic material has super scratch-resistant characteristics. IWC designed the case to be matte black to It has a good anti-reflective effect in the cabin. The top of the crown on the other side is engraved with the IWC brand logo. The upper and lower chronograph buttons, including the back of the watch, are made of Ceratanium®, which is the latest material developed by IWC material engineers. This material is based on titanium alloy. After these components are processed, they must be subjected to a kiln process to give the surface of the material similar to ceramic. This Ceratanium® porcelain titanium material combines the characteristics of titanium and ceramic materials. Lightweight and firm, it is also particularly resistant to scratching and rubbing. The end of the chronograph button is also decorated with red.
The black dial uses large Arabic numerals and striped hour markers as well as hour and minute hands to indicate the time, including the iconic triangle at 12 o’clock. These designs are designed for pilots to better read the time when operating the aircraft. The signs are coated with luminous paint. There are three sub-discs on the dial, all decorated with a record pattern effect, the 30-minute counter at 12 o’clock, the 12-hour counter at 9 o’clock, and the week calendar display window at 3 o’clock. The panel follows the instrument design of the series, while also presenting a highly harmonious tactical style. The green Nato fabric strap is lined with brown leather. Combining the light characteristics of ceramic material and porcelain titanium, the wearing texture is further improved, and its overall style is also very suitable for the tough military style of the watch. It is also on the top of the pin buckle. Engraved with the IWC brand name.
