Vintage Eye for the Modern Guy: IWC Mark XVIII Copy Watches

This week, we make our way back to the IWC Pilot’s Watch collection,easy-to-read dial, a utilitarian steel case, and a resolute sturdiness to withstand some of the harsher shocks experienced during wartime.

IWC Mark XVIII Copy Watches With a 40-mm steel case, the automatic IWC Caliber 30110 movement, and an engraved homage caseback, this timepiece was developed by IWC to be a durable, reliable, entry-level model to the larger Pilot’s watch collection. On the dial, you’ll again notice how this was carried out, with large Arabic numerals, a visible minute ring, a plain date window at the 3 o’clock mark, and the hallmark of any classical pilots’ watch, the triangle with two dots at the 12 o’clock position.

With the vintage models, the purpose for utilitarian durability and readability is clearly seen in the steel case and contrasting black and white dial. But outside of the inspiration for the design, the vintage and modern pieces look almost completely different: the cases are thicker and larger in the modern watch and have contemporary finishing; the modern dial features are all larger and more visible; and the movement is an ETA-based automatic workhorse rather than the manually wound Cheap IWC Replica found in many vintage watches developed by the brand.

The modern Fake IWC Mark XVIII is certainly an interesting new edition to the historical lineage of the Mark series, as well as to the larger historical IWC Pilot’s Watch collection. It is also a change in direction when compared to the last piece in the Mark series, the Mark XVII, in which the case was slightly larger, the dial was more complex, and the entry price was somewhat higher. Overall, it adds another element to the increasingly growing IWC Pilot’s Watch collection, and offers a solid model both for first-time consumers entering the world of IWC watches, and for longtime collectors hunting for an everyday-wear watch with a solid backstory.
