A favorite of the IWC Pilot's Watch lineup, the Mark XVIII is the latest version of their entry level timepiece that takes the design back to its roots. Resembling the original model from the 1940s, the watch slims down to 40mm and removes the triple date window for a cleaner, more authentic design.

The 40mm stainless steel case is available with a white or black dial on a Santoni leather strap or metal bracelet. Inside is an automatic movement with a 42-hour power reserve, which is now housed in a soft-iron, anti-magnetic inner case. 

The company will also be issuing the watch in two new editions, the limited edition Le Petit Prince model with a blue dial and brown leather Santoni strap and a Top Gun Miramar model with a black ceramic case, anthracite dial, and green calfskin strap. View the entire Mark XVIII in the gallery below.
