Iwc Launches New Mark Xviii Pilot’s Watch ‘tribute To Mark Xii’ Special Edition

October 9, 2017, Schaffhausen-IWC Schaffhausen launches the new Mark XVIII Pilot’s Watch ‘tribute Mark 11’ special edition, which reproduces the historical classic model Mark The iconic design of the Eleven watch. In commemoration of the birth of the first Mark Eleven watch, this special edition is limited to 1948.

 The special edition of the Mark XVIII Pilot’s Watch Tribute to Mark Eleven (Model: IW327007) inherits many classic elements of the Mark XXI watch, with a retro flavor: ‘3’, ‘6’, ‘9’ covered with luminous coating The small rectangular hour markers at the four points of ” and ’12’, together with the rod-shaped hands also covered with luminous coating, reproduce the classic dial design of the Mark XI watch, and also ensure the best reading effect at night. Compared with the Mark XVIII Pilot’s Watch, this special edition watch has a slimmer minute scale and omits the dots on both sides of the triangular luminous hour marker at the 12 o’clock position. Continuing the design of the original 1948 model, this functional sports watch is also equipped with a green Nato strap. In addition, in order to cope with the special environment in the cockpit of the aircraft, the watch is equipped with a soft iron inner case that protects the automatic mechanical movement from magnetic fields, and a sapphire glass mirror that can withstand sudden pressure drops.
 The Mark Eleven Pilot’s Watch has a black dial with luminous white Arabic numerals and a distinctive style. It was originally designed for the Royal Air Force and later used by other British Commonwealth troops. Since its birth in 1948, it has been produced in Schaffhausen, Switzerland until the early 1980s. In 1994, the ‘Mark Twelve’ watch, which was more suitable for daily wear by the public, was born, inheriting the long tradition of Mark pilot watches and becoming one of the most popular IWC watches.

Hublot Decrypting The Vast Xinghejianspeak

The ancient and vast galaxy is vast and mysterious. In the dimension of time, human beings are constantly searching for the codes of life and aesthetics. On the occasion of the Star Festival, Hublot uses geometric tattoo art to create geometric symbols to interpret the silent emotions in the universe. The brand ambassador and founder of London-based tattoo studio Sang Bleu Maxime Büchi draws inspiration from Da Vinci’s famous painting ‘Vitruvian Man’ and gives harmonious and balanced pattern design to Among the watches that record time. The unique pattern of the ‘orthogonal circle’ is subtly reversed and superimposed, like the movement of stars, and the life code of all things, depicting the moment of truth beyond time and space.
