IWC Replica Mark XVIII Edition Resurrects an Iconic Pilot Watch Design

Even with new watches flooding the market every day, there are still a few iconic classics that fans can’t get enough of. One of those classics is the IWC Replica Watches Mark 11 — probably the most quintessential pilot’s watch there is, produced by IWC from 1948 until the early 1980s. Even though other models came before the Mark 11, and even though IWC has continued the “Mark” series beyond it, the Mark 11 still stands out among the rest. So, while the most recent iteration of the series, the Mark XVIII, is significantly different in its design, Fake IWC Watch has now unveiled a special edition of that watch that will incorporate design elements from the historic model: the Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Edition “Tribute to Mark XI.”

One notable difference between the “standard” Mark XVIII and the Tribute to Mark XI are the indices, which are thinner on the special edition. Also, the dots at the triangular index at 12 o’clock are missing. Like the Mark 11, the Tribute to Mark XI has small rectangles at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock that are coated with luminescent material. The hands have received a luminescent coating as well. And speaking of the hands, those are also in the same style as on the IWC Replica Mark XI, including the very recognizable rectangular hour hand.

The Tribute edition is powered by the automatic Caliber 3511, which is nestled inside a soft-iron cage to protect it from magnetic fields. This is another nod to the 1948 Mark 11 model, which had to be resistant to magnetic fields because of the technical specifications from the British Royal Air Force, to whom the Best IWC Replica Watch was primarily supplied. Last but not least, the Tribute to Mark 11 is equipped with a NATO strap just like its ancestor.

The differences between the original Mark 11 and the Tribute edition include the size – the Limited Edition IWC Copy Watches Mark 11 measured 36 mm, while the Tribute to Mark XI’s steel case is 40 mm – and the date window at 3 o’clock that appears on the modern timepiece.

Best IWC Replica Pilot’s Watch Chronograph

This new Fake IWC Watch is a conglomeration of historical designs by the brand, taking its foremost influences from the legendary WWII-era Mark 11 military watch, the early-1990s IWC Doppelchronograph reference 3711; the Mark 11-influenced 1994 Fliegerchronograph Reference 3705/6; and also from more modern styles developed by the brand, most notably in the contemporary Mark XVIII and the accompanying “Tribute to Mark XI” watches released last year.

The Best IWC Replica Watches 43-mm flieger-style case, with its use of brushed steel, has a clear military aesthetic with an unadorned, solid caseback, the familiar Pilot’s Watch Chronograph pushers, and a dark green canvas strap. The black dial of the watch clearly distinguishes it from its IWC boutique counterparts, with its subtle outer minute ring reminiscent of a tachymetric scale, faux-patina-accented quarter-hour markers, and thinned Arabic numerals for the rest of the timing positions.

Inside the IW377724 is the automatic IWC Caliber 79320, capable of a 44-hour power reserve, which— like its ‘90s predecessors — uses a Valjoux 7750 base movement. Accompanying its unorthodox arrival to the market is its an equally unusual limitation: the IWC Copy Watches will not be made in a limited-edition quantity, but rather will only be available for a limited period of time through IWC’s online boutique.

More commonly, modern pilot watches with clear World War II vintage-style attributes are credited to the B-Uhr style like that seen in AAA IWC’s Big Pilot Replica Watches series, which itself heavily influenced the development of the historical Mark series in the late 1930s. Nonetheless, in the style of hands, quarter-hour markers, Arabic numerals, and in nods to both utility and history via an undecorated caseback and faux patina, the influences of the Mark 11 are obvious on this modern watch.
