Mark is the most basic Pilot watch of IWC, it has the very basic functions for a watch, the hours, minutes, seconds and date. It is exactly such simple design that makes Mark series popular among all other IWC models. In replica watch industry, the first Mark series watch that raised a sales storm is Mark XVI, which was made by MK factory at that time, now this watch has been out of stock for a long time. In recent years, some new factories appeared, and M+F is a new factory that also makes good quality replica IWC watches. This time, they brought us the new IW327007 that pays tribute to Mark XI. There are two models, one is with black nylon strap, the other is with a olive green nato band.
Maybe it is not suitable for some people who are looking for watches with 38mm or 39mm case. The case diameter of this IWC is up to 41mm, but the case is thin, which is only 11mm. Like genuine, the watch is made of 316L stainless steel, the case is brushed, case back is solid and engraved with “TRIBUTE TO MARK XI” and “ONE OF 1948”.
The dial is the biggest highlight of the watch. It is black with white Arabic numeral markers. The bar-shaped hour markers, including the triangle mark at 12 o’clock, are applied with beige luminous material, which look a bit vintage. The hour hand is also different from the hand of other Mark series watches, this one has a hour hand with flat tip, it looks very unique. Please note, under the beige hour marker at 6 o’clock, there are printings “SWISS” in white color. Date font is updated upon other versions of Mark series watch, now the date font is exactly the same as genuine.
The replica watch is equipped with a black nylon strap, under the outside nylon, there is black leather that will contact your skin. Now a lot of military watch brands adopt this design on the band, they cover the nylon material above the leather strap, which can not only bring wearing comfort, but also looks very cool. About the model with green nylon band, the backside material is brown leather.
Both watches are equipped with stable Asia ETA 2892 automatic movement. The inaccuracy is controled within several seconds, it is also one of the Asia automatic movements that have the fewest repairing rate.
