Yes, it seems so...

Because you haven't supplied a font with a glyph for that character!  
(The default Latin Modern fonts do not have it, and XeTeX *never* uses  
METAFONT fonts.)

The ifsym package comes with special (METAFONT) fonts which are used  
to create the PK bitmap versions in order to use these symbols.

Unicode fonts containing U+231A WATCH are:

	Apple Symbols (pixels!)
	Code2000 (rather big)
	Free Serif
	Unicode Symbols (quite ancient look, no À)



Think of XML as Lisp for COBOL programmers.
