For over 80 years, IWC’s Pilot’s Watches have been bringing the magic of flight to all those who wear them. These prestigious watches from Schaffhausen will be the highlight of the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer’s appearance at the forthcoming Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), which takes place in Geneva from 14th to 17th January 2019. Presented here, the new Spitfire line, which features only IWC-manufactured calibres and celebrates the unique engineering of the British fighter aircraft. The Spitfire, designed by Reginald J. Mitchell, is one of the most sophisticated developments in the history of aviation. The characteristic instrument design of IWC’s Pilot’s Watches likewise was the result of engineering to the specific requirements of military aviation. In addition, the “Silver Spitfire – The Longest Flight” project is launched as Steve Boultbee Brooks and Matt Jones will embark on the first round-the-world flight in a Spitfire this coming summer. A new TOP GUN line and “Le Petit Prince” special editions will also be presented.
