IWC Pilot’s Watches

Presented at the last International Exhibition of Haute Horlogerie, the new Mark XVIII has become fleetingly in one of the most interesting pieces of line aviator watches par excellence, the IWC.With the simplicity of his predecessors, Mark XVII and Mark XVI, and with a size in Ecuador between 36 mm Clock Auto Airman 36 and the new Big Pilot 44mm, also seen in the last SIHH, it is versatile, simple and unobtrusive. A back to basics in the making with an excellent result.

With stainless steel case 40 mm, keeping it soft iron inner case Magnetic previous models, it is available in three versions; two black dial, one with calfskin strap Santoni and another with steel bracelet and a silver dial with the same leather strap. And in addition to these “standard” versions, IWC has not forgotten two of his classic limited editions, which also have the Mark XVIII Le Petit Prince, with its blue and brown belt also Santoni feature, and Mark XVIII TOP GUN Miramar, with anthracite dial and sees its expanded size to 41 mm.

His sphere, inspired by instruments aboard a Junkers Ju 52 of the thirties, like the one engraved on the caseback, has been reduced to the bare essentials, the style watches classic aviation with Arabic numerals indexes and large to enhance clarity and readability in any situation, with the only distraction from the date display located at 3.

Any difference from its predecessor, the Lawfaqs? Of course. The first, reducing the box from 41 millimeters to 40, while the same design, the handles and the crown itself follow the same line. In the field, the most obvious details are the disappearance of the triple date Mark XVII benefit of a window conventional date, such as the Mark XVI, and return to the ring 9 and 6, forgotten in previous models, all with the aim of improving their reading. A goal that, of course, is more than fulfilled.

An instant classic that shows that sometimes the best way forward is simply to return to the origins.
