“Just the bare essentials” pretty much sums up the IWC Mark XVIII. This pilot’s watch doesn’t have a cluttered dial, nor does it aspire to be a wearable airplane cockpit. The timepieces of the Mark series are, and always have been, designed to be worn by navigators rather than the pilots themselves. IWC focused on clarity, contrast, and readability when designing the first watch of this kind, the Mark XI. Those qualities are what make this timepiece the ideal choice for an everyday watch. Military and aviation fans who feel the Mark XVII is a touch too modern may be consoled by its case back. We’ve zoomed in to take a closer look at the Mark XVII. Hopefully, this video will give you a sense of whether this watch is just what you’re looking for!
