SPITFIRE WITH A NEW FACE

Classic elegance and technological development are the hallmarks of the Spitfire Chronograph in 18-carat red gold and stainless steel. The surfaces of the case are worked until the watch is left with a luxurious highly polished or silky-matte finish. When the watch is titled, the incident light falling onto the sun-pattern finish of the slate-coloured dial moves in circles. The dark colour of the dial and the date display in the form of an altimeter underscore the Spitfire’s classic instrument look. In 2012, the Spitfire Chronograph was equipped for the first time with the IWC-manufactured 89365 calibre. The subdial at “12 o’clock” shows the recorded minutes, while the seconds can be read off from the central hand. Thanks to the flyback function, an ongoing time measurement can be “deleted” without an intermediate stop and start. The red gold version has a brown alligator leather strap with a pin buckle. The stainless-steel model is available either with a brown alligator leather strap with a folding clasp or with the stainless-steel bracelet with a fine-adjustment clasp that was developed in 2012 and permits the length to be changed as required.
