IWC Ref 379103: Spitfire Perpetual Calendar Digital-Date Month in Red Gold

July 14, 2012


Unveiled earlier in Jan 2012, the Spitfire Ref 379103 is an exemplary and intriguing timepiece I have been meaning to examine more closely for some time now. Part of the IWC Pilot’s Watch Collection, the Ref 3791 is first and foremost to be recognized as a first-class timepiece — as any watch with a perpetual calendar generally is. As you can see, the outward aesthetics of this piece do not belie the Ref 3791′s first-class nature — it is a gorgeous timepiece, with a radiant ardoise (slate) colored dial and (largely) brushed 18K red gold case, which together enclose the technical tour de force that is the IWC 89800 column-wheel, flyback chronograph caliber with digital calendar display. There is much to appreciate and discuss about this IWC Spitfire Perpetual Calendar.
