IWC Spitfire Longest Flight Mission Accomplished

Last year, IWC sponsored pilots Matt Jones and Steve Boultbee Brooks took to the sky to make their mark on aviation history with the first round-the-world flight in a Spitfire. Over 26,000 miles later, Jones and Boultbee completed that trip, breaking a record and forever putting their names in the history books. IWC is commemorating the flight with a special edition Big Pilot's Watch Big Date, which features a 46.2mm bronze case, a hand-wound IWC-manufactured 59235 movement with a 192-hour power reserve, and a commemorative caseback that's decorated with a special graphic and a small sapphire window that offers a peek at the movement. 

The Big Pilot’s Watch Big Date Spitfire Edition “Mission Accomplished” is limited to 500 pieces.
