IWC Spitfire Double Chronograph

Posted by wristwatch on July 10, 2007


The new Spitfire Double Chronograph from IWC sees the addition of a fascinating function to this prestigious watch line: the split-seconds hand, also known by its French name, Rattrapante. The conspicuous feature that sets this watch apart is the third push-button located at the 10 o’clock position on the case, which is mainly responsible for controlling intermediate times. At 17.1 millimetres, the 44-millimetre stainless steel case housing the 79230-calibre chronograph movement is slightly slimmer than the TOP GUN Double Chronograph, its weighty counterpart made of black ceramic in the classical Pilot’s Watch family.
