IW327010 — IWC Schaffhausen Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Edition “Le Petit Prince”

The Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Edition “Le Petit Prince” is a special-edition timepiece dedicated to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s little prince. In both form and function, this watch reflects the ideal established by classic pilot’s watches. Like cockpit instrumentation, the clearly organized dial is reduced to essentials, and legibility is a top priority. The watch, which is water-resistant to 6 bar, is powered by an automatic 35111-calibre movement, meets the requirements of professional pilot’s watches in terms of precision and has a 42-hour power reserve. With its soft-iron inner case, it is optimally shielded against the influence of magnetic fields. The midnight blue dial and the brown calfskin strap with its cream coloured quilted stitching, which is reminiscent of Saint-Exupéry’s flight suit, make this a particularly eye-catching timepiece.

The IW327010 Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Edition “Le Petit Prince” is a special-edition timepiece dedicated to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s little prince. In both form and function, this watch reflects the ideal established by classic pilot’s watches. Like cockpit instrumentation, the clearly organized dial is reduced to essentials, and legibility is a top priority. The watch, which is water-resistant to 6 bar, is powered by an automatic 35111-calibre movement, meets the requirements of professional pilot’s watches in terms of precision and has a 42-hour power reserve. With its soft-iron inner case, it is optimally shielded against the influence of magnetic fields. The midnight blue dial and the brown calfskin strap from Santoni with its cream coloured quilted stitching, which is reminiscent of Saint-Exupéry’s flight suit, make this a particularly eye-catching timepiece.


The new IW327010 Mark XVIII is an extremely clean, unornamented watch, in the spirit of the most revered of the Marks: the XI and XII, and it represents some major (for the Mark series) changes from its predecessor, the Mark XVII. The “Spitfire” style hands are still there, but the altimeter-style date window’s been reduced to a single date. The triangle at 12:00 has been moved down slightly, though it’s still flanked by two dots (it was placed squarely at the 12:00 position in the Mark XVII) and the case dimensions have been reduced somewhat, from 41 mm in the XVII to 40 mm in the XVIII. At release, it’s also joined by an edition “Le Petit Prince” with a white date window, and sunray brushed blue dial, as well as a very endearing engraving of the little guy on the case back. Both come on very solid-feeling calfskin straps from Santoni, which do a great job adding to the tool-watch, cockpit-centric feel of the new Marks.

FAQ

What methods of payment do you accept?

Bank Transfer

We generally recommend a “Bank Transfer” as the preferred method of payment when placing an order with us. Please note that bank transfers can take up to 3 to 5 business days for funds to clear.

 

PayPal

You can also make payment through PayPal’s Secure Payment System if that’s more convenient. PayPal guarantees that your online transaction will be secure, and that your information will be protected. PayPal generally charges a 4% processing fee, which will be added to the final order total for transactions completed via PayPal.

How long does the warranty last on my purchase?

Warranties generally vary depending on the specific item and also the manufacturer. However, you can usually expect a range between 2 – 5 years, which is the international standard.

What does duty free & tax free mean?

When you shop at duty free & tax free stores, your purchase is exempt from certain local and national taxes and duties.

For over 50 years, Jewels In Paradise has been a family owned, duty free & tax free business in Jamaica, so our prices are always competitive worldwide and we’re positive you’ll have a hard time finding better prices anywhere.

Do you have an aftercare service?

At this time, we do not provide an aftercare service in-house.

However, the warranty provided at the time of your purchase is honored internationally through the official manufacturer’s service center, and we’re more than happy to help you navigate the warranty & claims process.

How long does it take for my purchase to be shipped?

We know how important it is for your special purchase to arrive in perfect condition. That’s why we deliver your items using an insured courier service that generally takes your package right to your front door within 2 – 5 working days. Please note that for security purposes, and to honor our duty free system here in Jamaica, all orders must be signed for upon receipt.

During national & banking holidays, or due to adverse weather conditions, delivery times may be extended as a result of conditions beyond our control.

Do you ship worldwide?

Yes!

We deliver to any destination where FedEx is available. However, if you’re located outside of the normal FedEx delivery zone, we may also employ DHL, UPS and other courier services to get your order to you.

Can you order items not listed on your website?

Why buy from an authorised retailer?

The bottom line is: it will usually cost you less in the end.

This is perhaps one of the most overlooked — yet most crucial things that buyers should consider.

Official warranties often cover the movement and any major defects, which can be extremely valuable. In many cases, a faulty timepiece covered under warranty, may even be completely replaced with a brand new one. Compare that with “no official warranty coverage” provided by gray market retailers, who also often have “no return” policies. And, consider that some official service centers won’t even deal with your issue if your watch was not purchased from an authorised Retailer.

An authorised retailer can provide the assurance of guaranteed and complete coverage under the official manufacturer’s warranty. Additionally, authorised retailers generally have access to the entire product listing for the brands they represent.

There are other benefits that vary by store, city, and brand, as well as the customer. Here’s a great article discussing some of them.
