For the news Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Spitfire References IW387901 and IW387902, IWC has integrated a chronograph movement from the 69000 calibre family into its pilot’s watches for the first time.
The models are available in stainless steel case, black dial, rhodium-plated hands and green textile strap (Ref. IW387901) or in Bronze case, olive green dial, gold-plated hands and brown calf leather strap (Ref. IW387902).
IWC is presenting its first Pilot’s Chronograph with a movement from the 69000 calibre family and a reduced case diameter of just 41 millimetres. This calibre family, which was presented for the first time in 2016, is one of the most important developments in IWC-manufactured movements in IWC’s early history.
The 69380 IWC manufactured calibre is a robust chronograph movement with a classic column wheel design. The stopped hours and minutes are displayed on the two subdials at “9 o’clock” and “12 o’clock”.
The pawl-winding system, which winds up on both sides, boasts a power reserve of 46 hours. An inner cage made from soft iron protects the movement against magnetic fields.
