Used by the Royal Air Force and various other Commonwealth armed forces, IWC's Mark 11 was a staple of the company's collection from the late '40s until the late '80s. Today, IWC is bringing back the much-coveted dial with a limited edition "Tribute to Mark XI" timepiece. Built on their new Mark XVIII, the watch swaps out the new dial for the classic black dial with luminescent white Arabic numerals and it also gets fitted with an olive green NATO strap to complete the classic Pilot styling.
The watch will be produced in a limited run of 1,948 pieces and starting this July, it will be exclusive to Harrod's in London for three months. That will be followed by a worldwide release at all IWC boutiques and their authorized retailers.
