It’s clearly the year of the Spitfire over in Schaffhausen, with IWC Replica Watches US bringing not one, not two, but seven new references to SIHH inspired by the legendary mid-century British fighter aircraft. Two of those new references we’ve already seen: the standard Pilot’s Chronograph Spitfire in bronze, and the limited edition Timezoner Spitfire with its patented time zone bezel adjustment system.
IWC is eschewing those brushed silver dials and applied polished elements in favor of a traditional matte instrument dial layout borrowed from its classic Best IWC Fake Watches Mark 11 Pilot all wrapped up in a new vintage-esque color palette now supposedly inspired by the interior of the Spitfire: bronze cases, beige Super-LumiNova, and olive drab green dials.
With the exception of the case material and black dial, this watch is otherwise functionally identical to the bronze variant already covered. Same goes for the new limited edition Cheap IWC Replica Big Pilot Perpetual Calendar– a mirror of its stainless steel cousin in the standard line, and the flagship of the new Spitfire collection.
It’s a bit disappointing to not see this particular reference in steel, more so with a surprisingly limited production. If this trend persists, though, it seems highly unlikely that this is the last time we’ll see this movement in an IWC Pilot Replica Swiss Made.
