ELEGANT AND A TECHNICAL MASTER STROKE — LIKE A SPITFIRE

The Spitfire was a single engine fighter aircraft commissioned by the Royal Air Force. In the 1930s and 1940s, it was a piece of aerodynamic wizardry with outstanding performance. Since 2003 at IWC, the name Spitfire has also been synonymous with a Pilot’s Watch line that, in terms of elegance and technical expertise, is in a class of its own. This year, the Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month Spitfire remains almost unchanged with its slate-coloured dial and stainless-steel case. The large number of displays and complications underscores the watch’s outstanding horological qualities. The digital date and month indicators are displayed in large numerals. This is made possible by a complicated, powerful mechanism which, at the end of the month, synchronously advances up to four displays and, at the end of the year, the leap year display disc as well. This watch, as well as the Big Pilot’s Watch Spitfire in red gold, is supplied with the new brown calfskin strap from Santoni. The rugged leather goes perfectly with a Pilot’s Watch. The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Spitfire was designed as a sports watch for everyday use. The bezel of the stainless-steel case is polished to a mirror finish, as are two rows of links in the stainless-steel bracelet, giving the watch a special quality feel. This is underscored by the slate-coloured dial with its metallic finish, which matches the grey fuselage of its namesake, the Spitfire. A soft-iron inner case protects the precision movement against magnetic fields and the glass is secured against sudden drops in pressure.

Water-resistant to 6 bar, the stainless-steel case has a diameter of 43 millimetres. This provides sufficient free space for the integration of a day display on the dial. The watch is also available with textile straps inspired by historic Nato straps. A soft-iron inner case protects the precision movement against magnetic fields and the front glass is secured against drops in pressure.
