Inspired by the watchmaking brand’s original Mark 11 navigation watch, built for the Royal Air Force in 1948 and designed to mimic the instruments found in a cockpit, the IWC Pilots Watch Chronograph Spitfire IW387902 is lauded for its outstanding durability and supreme versatility.
The 41mm bronze case houses an olive green dial and develops a unique patina over time for a watch that is truly all your own. The soft iron inner case protects the movement from magnetic interference, which is crucial for preventing timekeeping inaccuracies at high altitudes. The IWC Pilots Watch Chronograph Spitfire has a case that features an engraving of the eponymous aircraft on the back.
The dial is covered by a scratch-proof clear sapphire crystal and features chronograph functions with hours, minutes, and seconds; a high-contrast display with luminous hands for accurate readability even during night flights; and a date display at the 3 o’clock position. Powering the IWC Spitfire Chronograph is the in-house 69385 caliber, ensuring precise stop time measurements up to 12 hours, and the bidirectional pawl winding system builds up a generous power reserve of 46 hours. The 33-jewel automatic movement features Côtes de Genève and perlage for precision timekeeping.
The 20mm brown calfskin strap has ivory contrast stitching for a vintage aesthetic that harkens back to the original double-riveted pilots watches designed to fit over even the thickest pilot’s jacket sleeves. All IWC watches from Luxury of Watches come with a certificate of authenticity and a 5-year warranty, so you can rest assured that your horological investment is well protected.
