The IWC Mark XV watch is featured on the wrist of Tom Cruise who played the main character in “Vanilla Sky”. The movie directed by Cameron Crowe is the mixture of science fiction, romance and psychological thriller, also starring Penelope Cruise and Cameron Diaz.
If you ask any person familiar with the world of Swiss watchmaking what brand is most well-known for producing best Pilot’s watches, you will definitely get the answer that this is IWC. Probably the company’s close relation to the realms of pilots and the sky made Vanilla Sky creators choose the brand’s IWC Mark XV watch from the Pilot’s watch line.
The IWC watchmakers developed the Mark XV watch to be rugged enough for a sports watch yet elegant enough to accompany its owner to any solemn event. The timepiece possesses a timeless design that will still be popular for many decades to come.
The Pilot’s Mark XV provides the best way of understanding the essence of Pilot’s watches. It has proved to be a reliable companion for adventures on the ground or in the air. The timepiece is based on its predecessor – the Mark 11. It was immediately appreciated as a true collector’s item.
The watch is housed in a solid, rather conservatively styled 38 mm case. The date indicator is found at 3 o’clock. The timepiece is driven by a reliable and accurate automatic movement. It features a legible dial and is water-resistant up to 60 meters. The overall look of the watch is completed by a comfortable and elegant leather strap.
The history of IWC Pilot watches is tracked back to the early 1930-s. Since that time the IWC Company, located in Schaffhausen Switzerland, has been involved into producing the most durable Pilot’s Watches. The IWC Pilot line was started by the Big Pilot’s watch launched in 1936. Later the line was enlarged by the Double Chronograph, Chronograph Automatic, Mark 11, Mark XV, Spitfire Chronograph Automatic, Spitfire Double Chronograph, Spitfire UTC, and Spitfire Mark XV.
I felt in love with this watch when I first saw the movie, I’m gonna buy it someday !
I fell in love with the watch when I saw the movie and subsequently purchased the watch. I have to say it is elegant and functional, without being ostentatious.
I’ve owned this watch for many years and like its conservative style. I expect to be wearing it every day for many years to come. It was a very pleasant surprise to see it in a Hollywood movie.
it’s my very first iwc watch, although not the most expensive of all my iwc.
like it, low profile and never get bored of it.
