  • Catalogue Essay

    Known for its contribution to military aviation, IWC has been one of the leading manufacturers of military watches since the 1940s. In 2017, the Schaffhausen-based firm released their Pilot’s watch Mark XVIII “Tribute to the Mark XI” as a limited edition of 1,948 pieces. Historically relevant and executed to stunning proportions, it is to many collectors one of the firm’s best vintage inspired pieces produced in recent times.

    While the original Mark XI from the late 1940s is considered by most one of the finest military watches ever produced, the Mark XI first entered into service in 1948 built especially for the RAF (Royal Air Force). With an illustrious heritage, the Mark XI was also utilized by the FAA (Fleet Air Arm) as well as the RAAF (Royal Australian Air Force).

    Featuring its iconic oversized white Arabic numerals with luminous markers on 3,6,9 and 12 o’clock in fauxtina, the vintage appeal is certainly achieved and further enhanced by its olive green NATO strap. The present example is offered in excellent overall condition and accompanied with its full set of accessories.
