In the aftermath of the recent raid, there has been a notable scarcity of new replica watches entering our market, particularly in the realm of IWC timepieces. Even ZF, renowned as the premier manufacturer of high-quality IWC replicas, has refrained from releasing any new IWC models this year. During a recent visit to our local watch market, I observed a somber scene – many watch stores were shuttered, with dwindling foot traffic and numerous vacant stalls available for rent. It has become evident that both the pandemic, represented by COVID-19, and the raid have cast a significant shadow over the watch industry.
In this context, I’d like to shed light on an IWC replica watch hailing from the V7 factory, which may not be as widely recognized in our region. It’s worth noting that this watch is not a recent addition to the IWC lineup; in fact, it was already produced by a factory named M+F in 2019, with MK factory following suit. This particular timepiece exudes a robust military aesthetic, a style that I once held in high regard. However, my personal preference has since evolved towards watches with a cleaner, more refreshing design.
IWC Pilot must be one of the most attractive military watches, especially its sub-series Mark, which has come to Mark XVIII edition. About IWC Mark series, its dial elements, unique engravings on case back and strap design, all of these make you want to consider it when you need to buy a military-style watch.
This timepiece exudes a rich vintage essence, with its Titanium case radiating a more subdued luster when compared to stainless steel. Both the Titanium case and case back are elegantly satin-finished, and this finish extends to the clasp as well. The black dial of the watch features luminous material applied to its hour markers and hands, which exhibit a subtle yellowish hue, harmonizing beautifully with the subdued Titanium tone of the case. The watch is completed with a brown leather band, which serves as the final touch to create a low-key yet flawless replica watch.
