The IWC Pilot’s Fake Watch Mark XVIII has been around for a while, but the standard production variant is quite different and shares more design similarities to the B-Uhr style of pilot watch.The number 1,948 is also how many pieces IWC will produce, making this watch uncommon but not rare. The style and aesthetics of the IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII “Tribute to Mark XI” is very similar to military and field watches from the early 20th century, most notably the “Dirty Dozen” watches.
As one might expect from a manufacture that’s been around for more than a century and a half, Cheap IWC Replica is known for several watch lines.In a year underscored by brands tapping into heritage offerings, the Tribute to Mark XI isn’t entirely surprising, but has been updated thoughtfully to meet the current tastes and needs of a watch collector.
There is a date window at 3 o’clock, and thankfully, the date wheel is black with white text which helps it blend in with the dial while maintaining legibility. The date complication is a concession to modern consumer preferences as the original Mark XI was not equipped with one. Given that this is a modern pilot’s watch, it comes equipped with a soft-iron cage to protect the movement against magnetism, but in usual IWC Replica fashion, there are no specific numbers. The crystal is also secured such that it will not be displaced by a sudden drop in air pressure, an expected feature in pilot watches as the air pressure drops dramatically the higher one goes.
Another concession to modern preferences is in the size of the watch, with the stainless steel case measuring 40mm wide and 10.8mm thick. The case is a classic design with curved, tapering lugs which are brushed on the top and bottom. The bezel on the IWC Pilot’s Watch Watches Lowest Prices “Tribute to Mark XI” is visually slimmer than the original Mark XI but suits the watch well. A simple fluted screw-down crown adds the finishing touch. With the screw-down crown and solid case back, one might expect the watch to be rated to at least 100m of water resistance, but the Tribute to Mark XI is only rated to 60m. While this does not affect the functionality of a pilot’s watch, it seems like a watch built with practicality and durability in mind should have a higher water resistance rating.
