IWC is giv­ing 1,948 pieces of its en­try-level Pilot’s Watch the mil­i­tary makeover. The Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII was launched last year with a clean de­sign in a crowd-pleas­ing 40mm case, but new for this lim­ited-edi­tion “Trib­ute to XI” are thin­ner in­dexes, added lume and the re­moval of the two dots pre­vi­ously flank­ing the tri­an­gu­lar in­dex at 12 o’clock. The orig­i­nal Pilot’s Watch Mark 11 from 1948 was sup­plied to the Royal Air Force and other Com­mon­wealth armed forces un­til the early 1980s, so it’s fit­ting that this 2017 trib­ute comes with a green Nato strap. Like the reg­u­lar Mark XVIII watches, the move­ment is pro­tected from mag­netic forces, thanks to a soft-iron case.
