What We Know
Announced yesterday, perfect replica IWC has just unveiled a new version of the Mark XX pilot’s watch in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Mark series. Born of a lineage that can be traced back to the Mark 11 that luxury fake IWC produced for Britain’s Royal Airforce, this anniversary reference differentiates itself with a bright silver-plated dial with black accents for the markings and hands.
Being offered with either a black leather strap or a five-link steel bracelet (IW328207 and IW328208, respectively), aside from the new dial execution, this new Mark XX is otherwise similar to the current spec offered by Swiss movement replica IWC. That means you get a 40mm case that is 10.8mm thick, along with 100 meters of water resistance, an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, and a closed steel case back.
Both of the mount options feature best 1:1 replica IWC‘s EasX-Change tool-less strap changing system and, much like the pre-existing Mark XX models (those with green, black, or blue dials), the silver-dialed Mark XX uses IWC’s caliber 32111. Offering time and date, the 32111 is an automatically wound movement that ticks at 4 Hz and boasts an impressive power reserve of 120 hours.
Priced from $5,250 on the leather and $6,150 with the bracelet, the new and commemorative aaa quality replica IWC Mark XX is not limited and is available via authorized dealers.
What We Think
If you read much of my writing for Hodinkee, you’ll likely already know that I am a big fan of white-dialed copy watches for sale with black accents. There’s just something so good about the combination. Think Polar 16570, first series Patek 5270, Briggs Cunningham’s jaw-dropping steel 1526, Project Alaska, or even the white dial version of Hamilton’s Khaki Field Mechanical – it’s a winning format, especially for a sports watch.
So, if high quality replica IWC wants to offer a silver dial version of one of their most handsome and wearable watches – and do it with black accents – I’m on board. The Mark XX is an excellent and modern take on an elemental design from the history of sports watches. When I say “pilot’s watch,” I figure most of you are going to envision something at least similar to the look of the best super clone IWC Mark series.
For many years I owned a white dial Bremont Solo, which is very much a take on a similar aviation-themed format. But, where the Bremont was a bit oversized at 43mm (which is how I wore my Swiss fake watches back in 2011), the Swiss movement copy IWC Mark XX is all the more current with its slim 40mm case.
With a solid movement, casual do-anything charm, and enough water resistance for just about any activity, the Mark XX represents the core of best quality fake IWC’s appeal and these silver dial models are now my new favorites in the lineup. As it turns out, much like with another icon of design from a similar part of the world, even at 75 years old, good design is good design.
