This version of the Mark XVIII in its vintage design reverts to the unmistakable design cues of the historic Big Pilot's Watch 52 T.S.C.
The Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Heritage features a design that is reduced to the absolute essentials. Its retro look, inspired by the famous Big Pilot’s Watch 52 T.S.C., gives this navigation watch a particularly striking appearance. With its contrasting dial and displays, it closely reflects the ideal established by classic pilot’s watches. The displays are round, large and clearly arranged. This later developed into the cockpit design: not even a single line is unnecessary – everything is designed to be clear and legible. The dial features large, rounded Arabic numerals to mark the minutes, with two exceptions: the 12 has been replaced with a triangle with dots at either side for improved legibility, while a date window is positioned where the 3 would usually be – adding a modern feature to this vintage-inspired design. This model comes with a stylish brown calfskin strap.
