As more brands declare their SIHH 2019 releases, IWC has given us a taste of its own novelties this week, including the brand new IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Spitfire in bronze. Within IWC’s popular and extensive Pilot’s Watch collection, this is among a number of models dedicated to the Royal Air Force (RAF) fighter aircraft called the Spitfire used around and throughout World War II. Taking their Spitfire Chronograph layout, IWC pilot chronograph top gun replica watches have re-imagined it using a patina-ready bronze case, an earthy green dial to match the tone, and a few other noteworthy updates.
For those familiar with the Chronograph Spitfire that IWC currently makes, you will notice some significant differences aside from the bronze green and case dial color. To begin with, the IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Spitfire Bronze measures in at 41mm wide using a case thickness of 15.3mm, and it will be an important decrease in terms of wearability from 43mm wide (and insignificant inclusion of 0.1millimeters in thickness). Another huge difference is that the new models are powered with the IWC pilot chronograph strap width replica watches in house 69380 automatic chronograph movement, which beats in 28,800bph, together with 33 stones, and has a power reserve of 46 hours this is as opposed to previous versions that used an ETA-based movement (“IWC 79320”). IWC has also built the watch, as one might expect, with a sapphire crystal, and a just-in-case water-resistance of 60 meters. To guarantee no wrist discoloration from the bronze, the caseback is titanium.
Bronze has increased in popularity in the past couple of years, with several brands publishing bronzed-cased watches, like Oris using their bronze Pointer Date that also has a green dial, for instance. I’ve been a lover of this trend, since I really like the aesthetic of well-worn bronze and enjoy the practice of watching the substance oxidize. To go together with the bronze decorative, IWC pilot chronograph lug width fake watch has chosen a green dial for this particular Spitfire Chronograph, which I think looks fantastic. To round out the earthy design, IWC equipped the watch with gold plated hands, along with a brown leather strap.
I enjoy IWC’s pilot watches quite a bit — as I write this, I’ve my Mark XVIII on wrist and I am also a lover of bronze watches in addition to this. I believe IWC pilot mark xviii movement clone watches did nicely with the green dial and gold-plated hands, and all together this is an appealing layout. It ought to wear as well, judging from the 41mm case measurement. All in all, it checks a lot of boxes for my tastes, personally. The IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Spitfire Bronze is just one of the watches IWC pilot double chronograph ceramic replica has shown off ahead of SIHH, and we’re excited about seeing them all hands-on at the upcoming series. The IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Spitfire Bronze will be readily available for a price of 6,800 CHF.
