With identical specifications, the Big Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN Miramar (Ref. 501902) is a tribute to the original Marine Corps Top Gun flight school in Miramar, California. It was from here that the reputation of the ultra-cool elite pilots in their even cooler flight gear spread all over the world. The new Miramar line picks up on elements of the military design. The shimmering metallic ceramic case and the anthracite-coloured dial lean on the typical colour and material repertoire as do the hands and chapter ring in beige and the green textile strap. The separate depiction of the minutes in the outer ring and the hours on a smaller inner ring is reminiscent of the deck watches of the 1930s and 1940s. Back then, the aircraft’s position and flight time were determined with the aid of octants and deck watches.
