IWC makes one of the most popular pilot’s watches. many military watch fans also love to collect IWC Pilot watches. Among these Swiss watch brands, besides Panerai, IWC is my favorite brand, not only it brings us Portuguese series, which is one of the most popular dress watches in the world, but also IWC unveils their simple and elegant Pilot’s military watch line. Mark series is the most simple model in IWC’s whole Pilot’s watch line. From Mark XVI to Mark XVIII, IWC maintains the traditional features of their Pilot’s watch but also added new elements, this is interesting. Having been tired of seeing so many prim watch design, some new material and design used on the watch are enough to attract our attention. Like this Mark XVIII IW327006 replica made by GS factory, it uses Titanium material in case, and this if the first time for me to see a Mark XVIII watch made with Titanium, it is good, while the stainless steel model published before is also very nice.
Titanium case looks a bit grey, with old brown leather strap, such design adds a lot of retro favor to the watch. Titanium case makes the watch have several advantages which stainless steel watch can not compare. First, the titanium case makes this watch much lighter in weight, the feeling is more obvious when you wear it. Second, the matt finish on the titanium case of this Mark XVIII is more scratch resistant, which is re-service friendly. The matt finish of the case is more like sandblasted, which is very exquisite.
The dial is black, which is in micro-sandblasted finish. All hour markers, including the Arabic numbers, are glowing strong green lume light in the dark conditions. The micro-sandblasted texture of the dial is exactly in line with the matt finish of the titanium case. Three hands on the center have blue edge, while the end of the second hand is in blue. The blue color usage increases the visibility of the hands, but I prefer them to be black. Date aperture is updated with correct structure. Date font is white in black background, the entire date window has a multilayer structure like genuine, the thickness of date font is also correct.
Case back is also sandblasted titanium, behind it, there is an Asia clone IWC 35111 movement that is based on modification of Asia ETA 2892. Most IWC Mark replica watches are equipped with Asia 2892 because it is very reliable. The exclusive movement for IWC Mark series. The replica is fitted with a brown leather band, which also comes with one nylon strap for free. By the way, the pin buckle on the strap has the same finish as case.
This watch is the new addition to our collection of IWC Mark replica watches. Now it is very cost-efficient for you to buy this watch, because you will get one pair of nylon straps from the factory for free.
