The eye-catching third push-button of the Spitfire Double Chronograph at “10 o’clock” is used to measure intermediate times with the split-seconds hand. Apart from the red split-seconds hand, the 79230-calibre chronograph movement powers another five hands, the shape of which was inspired by the prop blades of the legendary fighter and reconnaissance plane.
The Spitfire Double Chronograph from IWC saw the addition of a fascinating function to this prestigious watch line: the chronograph split-seconds hand, also known by its French name, rattrapante. This feature can be used to stop times to an accuracy of fractions of a second or to measure intermediate times within any one-minute period. Apart from the additional hand, the feature that sets this watch apart is the third push-button located at the “10 o’clock” position, which is responsible for controlling intermediate times. At 17.1 millimetres, the 44-millimetre stainless-steel case housing the 79230-calibre chronograph movement is slightly slimmer than the Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph Edition TOP GUN, its weighty counterpart made of black high-tech ceramic in the classical Pilot’s Watch family.
