A Professional and his Watch is a section where Watch Manila features individuals in certain specific fields and their watches which help them in their specific fields of work.
Paolo Maceren is a pilot for a local airliner. He has been flying for 12 years now, and he has been collecting watches for those 12 as well.
Paolo’s favorite watch to take flying is his IWC Mark XV.
The IWC Mark XV is a perfect companion for Paolo when he is flying. According to Paolo the watch is easily legible, not too big a size to be intrusive, matches his uniform, and is anti-magnetic to protect against the cockpit environment. Lastly, in the unlikely event of a water landing, the watch waterproof.
