You can read about it at click hereI know there's all sorts of nostalgia but the real idea is that one entrepreneur in Switzerland discovered that the name was legally available, and "sold" IWC on using it for a watch. A few years later, when IWC redesigned its pilot watches it was going to use a different name for the non-classic models ("Airfoil" was considered --no kidding) and Johann Rupert insisted that a name that was better known be used, so Spitfire was reenlisted.
