IWC has added two new 43mm military field watches to its Spitfire collection, with both titanium and bronze cases.

The new Big Pilot’s Watch 43 Spitfire pieces not only bridge the current gap between 41mm and 46mm and are a further move towards an authentic military aesthetic for the Spitfire collection and both feature solid titanium casebacks .

The bronze watch offers a warmer feel with its green dial and printed Arabic numeral hour markers while the sandblasted grade 5 titanium version presents a more technical look with an observation dial, made with pilots and navigators in mind.

“After introducing the Big Pilot’s Watch 43 in April, we are now adding two Spitfire models to the collection. Both feature the distinctive Big Pilot’s design with the striking conical crown in an ergonomic 43m case. However, what sets these new Spitfire models apart is their military aesthetic with closed case backs, inspired by the rugged field watches from back when the iconic Spitfire graced the skies,” explains Christian Knoop, Creative Director of IWC Schaffhausen.

Both watches use IWC’s manufacture 82100 calibre automatic with a 60-hour power reserve and are secured on buffalo leather straps.

The Big Pilot’s Watch 43 Spitfire models are available to pre-order via IWC, priced $8,950 USD for the titanium and $9,350 USD for the bronze.
