IWC Schaffhausen – Big Pilot’s Watch Spitfire

By Roberta Naas

For the first time in IWC Schaffhausen’s history, the brand has equipped a Spitfire watch with a perpetual calendar. A deft blend of sporty looks and elegance, the watch houses the manufacture-made, self-winding movement, caliber 52615. It consists of 386 components and displays hours and minutes; seconds on the day of week disc; and day, date, month, year and moonphases for both the Northern and Southern hemispheres.

The perpetual calendar mechanism, developed by master watchmaker Kurt Klaus, is mechanically programmed to be accurate for 577 years. Its twin barrels equip it with seven days of power reserve, which is indicated within the date disc at 3 o’clock. Despite offering a wealth of information, the dark green, military-inspired dial is easy to read due to the nicely balanced indications.

Price: $28,200 in sandblasted bronze
