Limited to 250 watches, this special edition is dedicated to the “Silver Spitfire - The Longest Flight” project. It was developed specially for the two pilots, Steve Boultbee-Brooks and Matt Jones, to assist them in their circumnavigation of the globe in a Spitfire. A simple rotation of the bezel sets the watch to a different time zone. The hour hand, the 24-hour display and the date are likewise adjusted automatically. The 24-hour display takes the form of a rotating disc below the dial, which significantly improves its legibility. The stainless-steel case, black dial and green textile wristband were inspired by the colours found in the Spitfire's cockpit. The IWC-manufactured 82760 calibre developed specially for this watch features Pellaton winding with components made of non-wearing ceramic and has a 60-hour power reserve.
