As Tribeca Film Festival’s “festival partner” for the second year in a row, timepiece maker IWC Schaffhausen just introduced its Pilot’s Watch Spitfire Chronograph Watch “Tribeca Film Festival 2014” as festivities kick off today in New York City. A truly one of the kind design, the Pilot’s Watch Spitfire Chronograph Edition “Tribeca Film Festival 2014” (Ref. IW387811) is a rather modern take on a IWC Schaffhausen classic. Within the watch’s core is the IWC 89365 calibre mechanical movement, a self-winding marvel capable of water-resistant up to 6 Bars or 200 feet. Armed with a 68-hour power reserve and encased in 18-carat gold, the timepiece features a slate-colored main dial accentuated by twin sub-dial in Bordeaux, references to Old Hollywood’s Red Carpet mystique.
The Pilot’s Watch Spitfire Chronograph Watch “Tribeca Film Festival 2014” will be made available for auction through Antiquorum auction house on Wednesday, April 9th, in New York. Proceeds from its sale will benefit Tribeca Film Institute, the non-profit organizer of Tribeca Film Festival.
Auction Date: April 9, 2014 (Wednesday)
