I was shown this watch today. I have to say that I do like the watch. It is the IWC Spitfire Mk XV Limited/ Special Edition watch. This watch was produced in 2001 and is a limited edition run of 1,000 pieces. It was specially for the British market. The actual model name and reference: Fliegeruhr Automatik Mark XV, reference 3253-005.
The watch commemorates the famous British Royal Air Force Spitfire which had a major role in the Battle of Britain. The case back has a relief of the plane. The dial, which is plain and simple reminds me of the dial of the 'holy grail' of pilot watches from IWC the Mk IX. I do like the cathedral like hands as well.
Functions: hours, minutes and seconds
Case: stainless steel, 38 mm diameter, 11 mm thick
Movement: IWC automatic calibre 37524, 21 jewel movement
Water resistant: 6 ATM
The beautiful dial with the luminous Arabic hour markers. The Spitfire legend at the 6 o'clock position indicates the relationship between the watch and the plane.
The case back. The relief of the plane and the limited edition serial number.
