IWC is one of my most favorite brands which I will choose to wear as a dress watch. Its Pilot, Portofino and Portuguese are very popular, they are also replicated by a lot of watch manufacturers in our market. Among all Pilot’s watches from IWC, the best-selling ones are Big Pilot Prince and Mark series models. There are several generations of IWC Mark from XVI to XVIII, today, there are still a lot of watch fans who love IWC Mark XVI. Mark XVIII was just published by IWC, two years ago, right? This watch has inherited the classic design of Mark XVI, but it has not reached the same sales height. I do not know any new features used on Mark XVIII. In the past, MK factory made a replica IWC Mark XVI and it became their best seller, afterwards, MK released several new improved editions of Mark XVI, now the ultimate edition of IWC Mark XVI replica has been out of stock, you can not buy it online, but if you have a secret contact with the boss of MK factory, you can get one. About this IWC Mark XVIII replica I am going to review, it is not made by MK or V6, I got this watch from a store in the morning, they did not tell me the factory which the watch came from, but it uses a genuine Swiss ETA 2892 movement.
The factory bought a genuine IWC Mark XVIII watch, all watch parts are disassembled and then perfectly cloned, this is the only replica watch with all components that could be interchanged with original. The case is made of 316L stainless steel and measured to be 40mm in diameter, case thickness is only 11mm. The case is fully brushed with smoothly polished bezel, touch the case corner and edge, you will not get any scratch feeling because the case has a polished edge. There are six notches on the case back for you to open the back with a special tool. An airplance is on the center of the back, it is the classic logo of IWC Pilot. The outer edge of the case back is polished, which forms a high contrast with the brushed center.
The replica watch has a black dial. Mark series has the simplest and most elegant dial among all Pilot’s watches. Like other Pilot’s Mark watches, this Mark XVIII’s dial has a very simple design, but the dial readability is good. A lot of Pilot’s watches from other Swiss brands also refer to the dial design of IWC Mark series because it is so classic. White hour markers on black dial increase the readability of whole dial, the square markers at 3, 6, 9 and triangle mark at 12 are applied with white luminescence, so, four hour markers on the dial will emit a strong green light, so are hour and minute hand.
The band is made of genuine calf skin leather, it is black on the outside, while the back side that touches your skin is in orange color. The whole leather band has black hand stitching. The pin buckle is perfectly molded, clean appearance with obvious edges and corners. The buckle has a brushed surface on the front, while its edge is smoothly polished. The lettering “IWC” is deeply engraved on the buckle. The back of the steel buckle also has correct engravings.
