[House of Watches] The Tasting Spitfire Chronograph is available in 18K red gold and stainless steel, and is known for its elegant design and advanced technology. The surface of the dial is polished to form a gorgeous high-gloss or silky matte surface. When light shines on a rotating watch, the radial sunburst on the blue-gray dial presents a dynamic circular pattern. Today I bring you a real shot of a Spitfire chronograph automatic watch, the official model is: IW387802.
Since its introduction in 2006, Spitfire chronographs made by IWC have been very popular. Today, the watch has a new look, with blue-gray dial and IWC-manufactured 89365 movement, perfect.
Classic elegance and technological innovation are the marks of the new Pilot’s Spitfire. The surface of the case is polished by hand to a high-gloss or smooth matte effect, with a magnificent appearance. The sun’s moire emits a dazzling light when it refracts sunlight on the blue-gray dial.
This brand new watch is equipped with a flyback function that ‘deletes’ the ongoing timing record and immediately restarts the new timing. This device stems from early aviation needs-when pilots had to shuttle a specific curve radius within a limited time.
The stainless steel case is paired with a brown alligator leather strap, and the buckle is a stainless steel folding buckle for safe and comfortable wearing.
The watch is made of stainless steel and is brushed, which is beautiful and fashionable, and it does not affect the appearance of the watch when it is subject to small scratches. The thickness of the watch is 15.5 mm. It was a bit thick for me.
The surface of the case is polished by hand to a high gloss or smooth matte effect, and the appearance is magnificent. The sun’s moire emits a dazzling light when it refracts sunlight on the blue-gray dial.
The diameter of the case is slightly increased by 1mm to 43mm, which makes the reading more clear. The small dial at 12 o’clock shows the minutes and the second record is displayed through the central hand. The red fixed second hand at the small dial at 6 o’clock indicates that the watch is operating normally.
The watch uses a brown crocodile leather strap with brown silk stitching for an even more brilliant effect. The folding buckle made of stainless steel is both beautiful and practical.
The exquisite Spitfire engraving pattern on the bottom of the table and the polished and frosted surface complement each other. The watch is equipped with a homemade 89365 movement, which can provide a power reserve of 44 to 68 hours after winding, and a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour.
Summary: The 89360 chronograph movement and subsequent 89361 movements are all designed and produced by IWC Schaffhausen. They will completely improve the automatic winding system, setting a new standard for watchmaking. This design is the brainchild of IWC’s movement development team for 4 years. The current domestic price of this watch is 93,500 yuan.
