The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Spitfire Story
For the first time ever, IWC presents a Pilot's Chronograph with a movement from the 69000-calibre family, housed in a reduced case size with a diameter of 41 millimetres. The IWC-manufactured 69380 calibre is a rugged chronograph movement with a classic column wheel design. It displays stopped hours and minutes in two subdials at "9 o'clock" and "12 o'clock". The bidirectional pawl-winding system builds up a power reserve of 46 hours. With a stainless-steel case, black dial and brown calfskin strap, the colours of this functional chronograph were inspired by the Spitfire's cockpit. A soft-iron inner case effectively shields the movement from magnetic fields.
