Why We Love it

It is a thing of beauty when a modern manufacture not only recognizes the passion of watch collectors, but rewards them with something truly special. 

While Special Editions are very common in the luxury watch segment, IWC has treated their most loyal clients with a series of limited production timepieces developed specifically for members of their online community, the IWC Collectors' Forum. Taking feedback from this community in regard to specific demands as well as design input, the brand has to date released three models in this exclusive series, known casually as CFX (Collectors' Forum and #). This particular timepiece, the most recent in the collection, is technically referenced as IW387808 Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Collectors’ Watch”, is referred to more simply as "CF3".

Limited to 250 pieces, with the first 100 units allocated specifically for members of the Collectors' Forum, this chronograph, a derivative of their popular Spitfire line, sold out globally in no time - and its not difficult at all to see why! Using the standard 43mm steel Spitfire case, the CF3 has been treated to a thoughtfully "retro" color scheme, replete with vintage-styled lume and a black matte dial with raised Arabic indices. But the modifications from a base Spitfire don't end there - the controversial open date window was done away with in favor of a single (and more traditional) aperture, and an antimagnetic inner cage was added, giving the CF3 some proper tool-watch chops to match its good looks.

This particular example is being offered with its original leather wrapped box, instruction manual, warranty booklet, and warranty card, dated January 2015. Worn sparingly, it shows only faint signs of wear from use, and comes with its original brown leather strap with contrast stitching and signed deployant buckle. In all seriousness, this may be our favorite contemporary IWC model, and that's really saying something.
