Watch Wedneday: IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII

The Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII is housed in a 40-millimetre stainless-steel case with a dial that is reduced to the essentials. Not even a single line is unnecessary – everything is designed to be clear and legible.

The brilliant white hands and indices on the matte black background have a luminescent coating and guarantee optimum legibility by day or night. The dial features large, rounded Arabic numerals to mark the minutes, with two exceptions: the 12 has been replaced with a white triangle with dots at either side, while the date window is positioned where the 3 would usually be.

The watch, which is water-resistant to 6 bar, is powered by an automatic 30110-calibre movement and has a 42-hour power reserve. With its soft-iron inner case for protection against magnetic fields and a front glass secured against displacement by sudden drops in pressure, the Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII takes up the tradition established by its historic forebear, the legendary Mark 11. The watch comes with a black calfskin strap.
