The Pilot’s Watch UTC Spitfire Edition “MJ271” is limited to 271 pieces. MJ271 was the original mark of the “Silver Spitfire” during her service. This aircraft will be the first Spitfire ever to circumnavigate the world in 2109 as part of the Silver Spitfire – The Longest Flight project. The bronze case, olive green dial and brown calf leather strap give the watch a unique character. The bronze develops an individual patina over time. The UTC mechanism makes it easy to set a second time zone.
Turning the crown in its middle position causes the hour hand to jump forwards or backwards in one-hour increments. If the date limit is exceeded, the date display automatically switches on. The home-time can be read on the IWC-typical, arcuate UTC display in the upper half of the dial. The newly developed IWC manufacture caliber 82710 has a Pellaton mechanism with components made of wear-resistant ceramic and a power reserve of 60 hours.
