This watch face lies between a varnished brown trail of crocodile skin, complimenting the scratch-resistant sapphire dial window. The window submerges you in the silver-plated dials displaying the 60 seconds, 30 minutes and 12 hours, fixed next to a sliver dial with day-date. IWC flairs history and modernism, with a design that was inspired by the Royal Air Force (RAF) fighter aircraft called the Spitfire, used during World War II.
All in all, this timepiece checks all the boxes making it easy to see why it is one of IWC’s best selling series. From the sliver crown that needs to be launched in the stainless steel case to the elevated numerals, all contributing towards a the three-dimensional feel. Luminescent hands and markers indulge your imagination as if you are in the cockpit of the Spitfire flying over a lit city.
The IWC Spitfire has become one of the most sough-after timepieces and with good reason. On your wrist, you will find this watch wonderfully practical whether you’re at the track, on the water or in the air. Offering an air of sporting elegance, allow this timepiece to strap you in and launch you into favourable time.
