IWC Schaffhausen Pilot's Watch Chronograph Spitfire
The stainless-steel case, water-resistant to 6 bar, has a diameter of 43 millimetres, which creates enough space to integrate the day and date displays into the dial. On the subdial at “9 o’clock”, a red seconds hand indicates that the watch is running normally and adds a colourful highlight to the dial. The slate-coloured, glistening metallic dial was chosen as a tribute to the grey fuselage of the plane that gave this watch its name. A soft-iron inner case protects the precision movement against magnetic fields, while the front glass is secured against displacement by sudden drops in pressure. The bezel on the stainless-steel case and two rows of links in the stainless-steel bracelet are mirror polished, which lends this watch a particularly high-quality feel.

In 1868, the American watchmaker and entrepreneur Florentine Ariosto Jones travelled from Boston to Switzerland and founded the ‘International Watch Company’ in Schaffhausen. His visionary dream was to combine advanced American manufacturing methods with the craftsmanship of Swiss watchmakers to make the best pocket watches of his time. In doing so, he not only laid the foundation for IWC’s unique engineering approach but also established the centralized production of mechanical watches in Switzerland.
Over its 150 year history, IWC Schaffhausen has developed a reputation for creating functional complications, especially chronographs and calendars, which are ingenious, robust, and easy for customers to use. A pioneer in the use of titanium and ceramics, IWC today specializes in highly engineered technical watch cases manufactured from advanced materials, such as titaniumaluminide and Ceratanium®. Preferring the principle of “form follows function” over decoration, the Swiss watch manufacturer’s timeless creations embody their owners’ dreams and ambitions as they journey through life.
IWC sources materials responsibly and takes action to minimize its impact on the environment, creating intrinsically sustainable timepieces that are built to last for generations. The company prides itself in training its own future watchmakers and engineers, as well as offering an excellent working environment ...
