IWC has a long history with respect to pilot’s watches. Their notorious Mark 11 traces all the way back to 1948 and that’s why IWC thought the time has come to revive it in the current Mark XVIII. Meet the ‘Tribute to Mark XI’ rendition. Restricted to just 1948 pieces, so you must be quick.

The unique IWC Mark 11 was underway from 1948 till the mid 1980s, prior to being supplanted with the Mark XII. The IWC Mark 11 was fitted with an IWC Caliber 89 development, hand-wound and ticking at 18.000vph. A development they utilized in different looks too. From that point forward, IWC utilized Jaeger-LeCoultre developments and ETA developments for their Mark-arrangement Pilot watches. This new IWC Mark XVIII ‘Tribute to Mark XI’ has the self-winding 35111-type, which depends on the Sellita SW300-1.

IWC made a point to a few plan components from the first Mark 11, for example, the stick hands, the glowing markers at 3, 6 9 and 12 o’clock and obviously the three-sided record at 12. The lumed components have gotten this vintage patina hope to pressure the retro part of this Pilot’s watch.

I love IWC’s toolwatches, similar to the Pilot mark-arrangement and the Genta based Ingenieur models. This Mark XVIII ‘Tribute to Mark XI’ reference IW327007 is essentially staggering and one of my #1 versions as of now. The first Mark 11 was mostly conveyed to the RAF.

As said, the Mark 11 was underway for quite a while range. In 1984 it was supplanted by the Mark XII. From that point forward, as per IWC, it is outstanding amongst other selling models from the Schaffhausen watch company.

This extraordinary release will be only offered at Harrod’s in London for a very long time (beginning July 2017) and subsequently will be accessible from IWC stores everywhere on the world.

IWC’s Mark XVIII ‘Tribute to Mark XI’ IW327007 is valued at 4790 Euro and comes with a green NATO strap.
