IWC Schaffhausen Pilot's Watch Mark XVIII

# IW327017

The Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII is arguably the most uncompromising embodiment of a pilot’s watch. This timepiece, whose roots go back to the iconic Mark XI from 1948, incorporates all the design codes and functionalities of a larger pilot’s watch in a compact 40-millimetre case made of stainless-steel, making it perfect for a slimmer wrist. The silver-plated dial creates a sharp contrast to the black hands, numerals, and indices. The robust 35111 automatic calibre provides a 42-hour power reserve and is protected from magnetic fields by a soft iron inner case. This version of the design classic is fitted with a beige textile strap.

IWC Schaffhausen

In 1868, the American watchmaker and entrepreneur Florentine Ariosto Jones travelled from Boston to Switzerland and founded the ‘International Watch Company’ in Schaffhausen. His visionary dream was to combine advanced American manufacturing methods with the craftsmanship of Swiss watchmakers to make the best pocket watches of his time. In doing so, he not only laid the foundation for IWC’s unique engineering approach but also established the centralized production of mechanical watches in Switzerland.

Over its 150 year history, IWC Schaffhausen has developed a reputation for creating functional complications, especially chronographs and calendars, which are ingenious, robust, and easy for customers to use.

IWC sources materials responsibly and takes action to minimize its impact on the environment, creating intrinsically sustainable timepieces that are built to last for generations. The company prides itself in training its own future watchmakers and engineers, as well as offering an excellent working environment ...
