Hi guys I see the IWC has a amazing range off pilots watches called the Spitfire line but boy they are expensive as expected, but Im also concidering one to join my IWC big pilots watch! I like the Spitfire chronograph. I'd love to see some IWC watches so show the if you have them!

I think it looks good but don't like the name because no watch could look less like a Spitfire or have less inspiration from a Spitfire. It's like the next one will be called the SR-71 because it has a black dial.
Lol true there's not much Spitfire insperation regarding the watches looks but I still love the chronograph model.

Not sure these are all that "stunning", rather, looks like more of the similar/same--like their simpler dials, such as the UTC--would never consider them for a chrono.

I think they're a great addition to their existing collections to offer more choices for everyone; these seem to be very military/vintage/pure tool watch, a bit too much for me, but I do like the 3-hander and its 39mm case.

Nice to see some lovely chronograph IWC watches. This is the one I'm look at getting and as said I'm glad they have their own in house movement

I actually like the color that resembles faux patina. It’s a softer, less “in your face” color than white or green, and matches the black dial nicely.

I’m not sure how much the in-house movement will do for this watch. The dial still looks like a 7750 is behind it. And that 7750 was a solid movement. I believe that ETA provided their top movement to IWC and built it to IWC’s specifications.

I agree about the 7750 movement and I've had two watches now using it and they were always reliable and accurate.
