Featured Watch: IWC Top Gun Miramar


IWC Pays Homage to Top Gun with Special Pilot’s Watch

“I feel the need… the need for speed.” With iconic lines such as these, it’s not hard to see why Tom Cruise’s memorable turn as LT Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in Top Gun has held a place in our hearts for thirty years. IWC pays tribute to the fighter pilots of the United States Naval Air Station Miramar, on which that iconic 80’s film was based, with their collection of Top Gun timepieces. One of our favorites of these timepieces, the IWC Pilot’s Top Gun Miramar Chronograph, is available now in our Nashville luxury salon.
