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
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)
Unicode Symbols (quite ancient look, no À)
Think of XML as Lisp for COBOL programmers.
