The sand-coloured ceramic was inspired by the Mojave Desert, where the China Lake Naval Air Weapons Station – the US Navy's largest single landholding – is located. The colour, which perfectly matches the flying suits of the Navy's pilots, results from a combination of zirconium oxide with other metallic oxides. Limited to 500 pieces, this striking chronograph is powered by the IWC-manufactured 69380 calibre. Apart from its stopwatch function, the classic column wheel chronograph movement has displays for the day and date. The bidirectional pawl-winding system builds up a power reserve of 46 hours. The chronograph, which has a dark brown dial, has a beige rubber strap with a textile inlay.
