The iconic IWC Mark XI, launched in 1948, represents a historic collaboration between the International Watch Company (IWC) and Jaeger-LeCoultre (JLC). These timepieces were carefully crafted to the strict specifications of the British Ministry of Defence (MoD), with functionality as the top priority. And the result? Watches that have withstood the test of time as classics.

All Mark XI watches were subjected to rigorous testing in the chronometer workshop of the Royal Greenwich Observatory in Herstmonceux. And for good reason, because the accuracy had to meet the specifications of the users, they were supplied to the R.A.F., FAA (Fleet Air Arm), RAAF (Royal Australian Air Force) RNZAF (Royal New Zealand Air Force), among others. The IWC Mark XI was used by the airforce pilots since its introduction and was finally retired in 1981.
