International Watch Company (IWC) first launched the Mark XI in 1948, based on specifications from the British Ministry of Defense (MoD), with legible dial and functionality taking centre stage 

The Caliber 89 and specifically the Mark XI is considered by many to be one of the most important military watches ever released, powered by arguably the most reliable manual wind movement ever put out to the world

This example displays a thick case with deep caseback engravings, RAF required "T" denoting Tritium dial (as per the changing post war regulations that resulted in radioactive Radium being switched to "legal" Tritium), and is in overall superlative condition for its age - please refer to images as they form part of the description

The watch has been inspected and regulated by our watchmaker, and is currently running strong and keeping excellent time
