You’ve got your first-class ticket (or economy plus, if you’re savvy), your carry-on bag, your guidebook and TSA-friendly attire. You’ve already invested so much in making sure your travel plans go off without a hitch; assuming you’ve also invested plenty in your timepieces, it makes sense to go the extra mile and bring along a few travel essentials for taking care of your collection on the go.

IWC’s tribute to TOPGUN — the Navy’s elite strike fighter instructor program (not the movie) — is a rugged yet handsome take on the pilot’s watch. Despite its seemingly large 44mm case, its lightweight ceramic construction should wear comfortably on any trip (and every trip to come).

Da Luca Chromexcel Leather Nato
