James Badge Dale sports IWC Spitfire UTC watch

First published: 25-05-2011

Fashion watch enthusiasts who managed to catch the US television series Rubicon may have noticed that main actor James Badge Dale sports an IWC timepiece throughout.

The Spitfire UTC is the watch in question and can be seen worn by Dale throughout the first series of the conspiracy-theory drama.

One of the highlight features of the device is that it uses Universal Time Coordinated (UTC) to display the time, an international time standard that is appealing for pilots and regular overseas travellers.

In order to help change time zones, the Spitfire UTC displays local time on its main dial – which can be changed in one-hour steps if necessary – while a window below its centre displays the home time.

Dale, who will be known to many US television fans for his roles in The Pacific and 24, sports the timepiece in a black dial and matching leather strap, though a silver dial and brown-leather bracelet is also available.
