A Star Worthy Special Edition

The Pilot’s Watch Spitfire – first introduced in 2003 and named after the legendary single propeller aircraft of the same name – is a masterpiece of technology, timeless elegance, and an emblem of valor and strength. Equipped with the IWC-manufactured 89365 caliber, the self-winding chronograph features a stopwatch function with minutes and seconds as well as a flyback function. The Pilot’s Watch Spitfire Chronograph Edition “Tribeca Film Festival 2014” is an especially modern classic and a stylish tribute piece with rich Bordeaux subdials contrasting luxuriously against the slate-colored dial.

The 89000-Calibre Family

Designed and manufactured completely by IWC in Schaffhausen, the 89360-calibre chronograph movement and its successor, the 89361, feature a significantly improved self-winding system and set new watchmaking standards. The design, which occupied an IWC development team for a full 4 years, was necessitated by a revolutionary chronograph display that enables the user to read off even relatively long periods of stopped times – 8 hours and 52 minutes, for example – at a glance: a circular totalizer combines the hour and minute hands as if they were a watch-within-a-watch. In 2012, it was joined by the newly developed 89365 chronograph movement including a stopwatch function with minutes and seconds as well as a flyback function. After further development, the IWC-manufactured movement was known as the 89800 calibre and used for the big digital date and month displays in References 3761 and 3791. The new Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month comes equipped with a further development on the theme, the 89802 calibre.
