At the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva, IWC Schaffhausen presented a new Spitfire line in the Pilot’s Watches collection.
The design is inspired by the puristic instrument design of the Mark 11. The iconic navigation watch was produced in Schaffhausen for the Royal Air Force from 1948 and was worn by many of the pilots and navigators serving at that time. Designed by Reginald J. Mitchell, the Spitfire’s iconic shape is the result of a perfectly functional design; its elliptical wings not only make the Spitfire agile and easy to manoeuvre, they also give it its unique silhouette. The characteristic instrument design of IWC’s Pilot’s Watches was likewise the result of engineering to the specific requirements of military aviation.
With a clear emphasis on technology and development, IWC Schaffhausen has been manufacturing timepieces of lasting value since 1868. Its philosophy, based on a passion for watchmaking, aims to maintain a spirit of indefatigable initiative and impeccable craftsmanship.Find out more >
