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 35111-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 stainless-steel bracelet.
The Pilot Story
IWC Influenced the cockpit-instrument look of classic pilot's watches during the 1930s and 1940s. The white triangular index at "12 0'clock" allowed pilots in the cockpit to instantly recognize the position of the hands and the time at a glance. The upright equilateral triangle has two dots at either side to make the dial easier to read, and is also luminescent.
The black dials of cockpit instruments with their contrasting, luminescent displays has been the inspiration for the cockpit design of classic Pilot's Watches for decades. The dial is reduced to the bare essentials, with striking luminescent hands and numerals that stand out against the matte-black background.
The striking conical crown of the Big Pilot's watch harks back to the pioneering days of aviation, when pilots had to face the elements in unheated cockpits. The original Pilot's Watches had particularly large crowns that were easy to grip so that they could be set and wound by a pilot wearing thick gloves and a padded light suit.
