Just like the Spitfire, the IWC watch collection of the same name also perfectly combines form and function. The backbone of the new Spitfire line is the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Spitfire (ref. IW387902). The design is inspired by the iconic Mark 11 navigation watch, which was produced in Schaffhausen for the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1948. IWC is presenting its first Pilot’s Watch Chronograph with a movement from the 69000 calibre family and a reduced case diameter of just 41 millimetres. The 69000 calibre family, which was first introduced in 2016, constitutes one of the most important developments in IWC-manufactured movements in IWC’s early history. Now, for the first time, IWC has incorporated a member of this calibre family into its Pilot’s Watches. The bronze case, the olive green dial and the brown calf leather strap give this chronograph a unique character. Over time, the bronze develops a special patina, making each and every watch a unique piece.
