This fall, IWC Schaffhausen launched three new models in its Pilot’s Watch collection. Following the Big Pilot’s Watch Annual Calendar Edition “Antoine de Saint Exupéry” and the Big Pilot’s Watch Heritage, WorldTempus presents today the Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Heritage.
With the Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Heritage, IWC has recreated the iconic Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII in a titanium case for the first time. This compact and retro model features a black dial, numerals printed in beige, and blue hands coated with luminescent material. Its chronometric functions, as well as the date and central hacking seconds are powered by the self-winding Calibre 35111, with a 42-hour power reserve.

Like the two other models unveiled earlier this fall, this timepiece is worn with a brown calfskin strap and is fitted with the tried and tested Pilot’s Watch technology from IWC: a soft-iron inner case keeps the movements safe from magnetic fields and the sapphire glass on all models is specially designed to be protected against sudden drops in pressure in the cockpit.
Otherwise, the layout and configuration haven’t changed. At 9 o’clock, you still have the running moments in white.Inside, the Watches of Switzerland 20th Anniversary Iwc Watches New York Replica Pilots Chronograph is powered with the exact same IWC 79320 Caliber located in the ref. 3777. It’s a robust, dependable self-winding chronograph movement that is based on the common Valjoux 7750. It defeats at 4Hz and offers around 44 hours of electricity reserve.To commemorate this exceptional watch, the Watches of Switzerland 20th Anniversary IWC Pilots Chronograph comes with a commemorative case back that shows the watch’s number from the limited edition collection. The case back also gets the Watches of Switzerland emblem and a special design that celebrates its 20th anniversary.This is a view that I feel a great deal of IWC fans, particularly those who are also fans of the present vintage-inspired watch trend, will enjoy. They haven’t messed about with the classic good looks of this ref. 3777 and whatever little changes there are have been implemented.
