IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch Mark XVIII ‘Tribute To Mark XI’ Watch

The IWC Pilot’s Replica 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 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.

The most significant visual giveaway that this watch is inspired by the Mark XI is the handset. The unique combination of hands has rarely, if ever, been seen outside the Cheap IWC Replica before. Like the ancestor, the Tribute to Mark XI comes with a matte black dial, painted Arabic numerals in white to maximize legibility, and a luminescent triangle at 12 o’clock in addition to luminous markers at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock. While the lume is modern Super-LumiNova, it’s been colored to look like aged tritium, which I have always found to be warm and pleasing to the eye.

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 Watches 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.

The movement, which Fake IWC Watches calls the Caliber 35111 is essentially a Sellita 300-1, which itself is a copy of the ETA 2892 . Pilot’s watches are designed to be robust, reliable, and easy to maintain, and this movement checks all three boxes. Like most modern movements, the Caliber 35111 beats at 28,800bph and offers a 42 hour power reserve. The movement is hidden under a stainless-steel screw down case back which is engraved with the words “Edition Tribute to Mark XI” and “One out of 1948” in addition to the usual markings.

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.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 IWC Copy Watches 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.

Wonderful IWC Pilot’s Chronograph Replica Watch Review

The goal of IWC Replica isn’t so much about novelty as it is about refinement. Many of the classic watch models and themes we like are evolving slowly in the “Rolex Way,” meaning slight improvements over time as opposed to major shifts and spurts of design creativity.Sports watches are typically segmented into a few major categories based on the overall theme they are based on. While blending occurs often enough, purists tend to appreciate watches designed for rather specific purposes. To that end, we have the dive watch, the driving watch, and of course the pilot watch.

IWC based out of Schaffhausen, Switzerland near the German border is no stranger to pilot watches. I believe that the brand produced them during both world wars, and moved from being a maker of good watches to luxury watches when the industry underwent major change mostly in the 1980s. Today IWC likes to play off of its history as much as it can, and compared to all of the sports watches it makes today its pilot watches have the most “historic legitimacy.”

Let’s also distinguish between the IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch US collection and the Big Pilot’s Watch collection. In addition to the latter being larger and containing an in-house IWC movement, it is also much more expensive. The IWC Big Pilot’s Watch on a strap costs more than two and half times the price of the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph.

Fake IWC Watches At 43mm wide and 15mm thick in steel, the IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph wears large, but very comfortably. It is no doubt masculine in proportions, but fails to look overly-sized, which is a good thing. IWC did a good job to emphasize the size of the dial by keeping the bezel thin, and making sure that the primary function of the device is effortless thanks to the correct choice of textures on the dial and the high contrast between the face and the markers/hands.


In a way I could probably recommend the dial of the IWC Pilot’s Copy Watch Chronograph to students wanting to understand effective watch dial design because there is so much being done properly here. IWC pulls from decades of history and design culture just among pilot watches to come up with something classic.

IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Tourbillon Replica Watch

For now, the IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Tourbillon Copy Watches is only available in an 18k red gold case. With dimensions of 45mm in diameter and 14.1mm in height, the IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Tourbillon Rétrograde is a rather large watch. The design of the case seems to closely follow that of the Portofino watches – a very classic design with slim-looking lugs and a thin bezel. The crown looks to be fairly beefy and large, which should be seen as a good thing since this is a manually wound watch. Water resistance is 30 meters.

The Cheap IWC Replica has a silver-plated dial with gold leaf-shaped hands. The hours are marked by gold baton markers and there’s a simple minute track with every 5-minute marker clearly indicated with Arabic numerals. At 3 o’clock, there’s a handy power reserve indicator, and at 6 o’clock you have the exposed one-minute flying tourbillon. Finally, at 9 o’clock you have a retrograde date indicator.

The Fake IWC Watches is driven by the 59900 caliber, which is visible through the large sapphire crystal display case back. It looks to be quite nicely finished with open-worked bridges, beveled edges, Côtes de Genève, and perlage. One can also see the large mainspring which offers the movement a generous power reserve of 192 hours or 8 days. To improve efficiency, the pallet fork and escape wheels are made out of diamond-coated silicon.

All in all, the IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Tourbillon Fake  Watches looks like it will give fans of IWC’s Portofino collection the chance to pick up a relatively complicated watch. Though I can’t say that I’m a fan of the styling – my biggest problem is the legibility of the date indicator – the IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Tourbillon Rétrograde does have technical features that are admirable. It isn’t a limited edition piece, but IWC does say that it will be available only in small numbers because of its complexity.
