The four pilot replica watches is well-proportioned, vintage-inspired, bronze-cased, no-nonsense chronograph upgraded with a manufacture movement.
Earlier this year, IWC introduced the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph IW377724, a nice, slightly vintage-inspired piece bringing back some of the design elements found on the IWC Mark II Replica Watches and the 1990s ref. 3706 – the simple Flieger Chronograph, without the rattrapante function. Basically, this watch was the modern iteration of the model that relaunched pilot’s watches at IWC.
The new IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Spitfire ref. IW387902 will be easily recognizable thanks to its distinctive bronze case. It isn’t the first time that IWC Replica relies on this trendy material for a pilot’s watch.
The other main evolution concerns the incorporation, for the first time in a “simple” Pilot’s chronograph, of a manufacture.Finally, a brown calf leather strap with a bronze pin buckle complements the design.
