Unveiled at SIHH 2016, the new Big Pilot’s Watch Spitfire (Ref. IW500917) in 18-carat red gold comes in a 46-millimetre diameter case. The hands, characteristic cone-shaped crown and back of the watch are also made of this warm, glowing precious metal.
The slate-coloured dial with sun-pattern finish creates the fascinating play of light that comes into its own when the watch is gently rotated. The reworking of the dial with the triangle below the chapter ring and the bolder numerals is clearly visible in this watch, too. The brown calfskin strap by Santoni with its orange lining goes perfectly with the watch.
