IWC Schaffhausen has had a long history with the aviation world, and its latest Silver Spitfire project “The Longest Flight” continues that relationship. The expedition will see the restored iconic British aircraft circumnavigate the globe, taking off from Goodwood Aerodrome. The journey will mark the longest flight ever made by any Spitfire, and will be conducted by two British pilots Boultbee Brooks and Matt Jones, flying 43,000 km across 30 countries. In support of their mission, IWC has crafted the Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Spitfire Edition “The Longest Flight” to accompany the two pilots as they venture through different time zones.

The 46 mm stainless steel watch houses an IWC-manufactured automatic self-winding movement — the 82760 Calibre — with a power reserve of 60 hours. Coming with the timepiece is an IWC-patented timezoner function, a 24-hour display for a world timer function, a date display, a convex sapphire glass with an anti-reflective coating on both sides, with the glass secured against displacement due to a drop in air pressure. Finally, tying together the Pilot’s Watch is a 22 mm military green textile strap.

The IWC Schaffhausen Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Spitfire Edition “The Longest Flight” is now available at select retailers for £11,290 GBP, or roughly $13,754 USD, limited to only 250 units. To learn more about “The Longest Flight,” head over to IWC Schaffhausen’s website now.
