IWC Da Vinci Automatic Replica Watch Hands-On

We saw a diverse new set of Pilot’s watches added to the IWC catalog, but 2017 is all about the complete overhaul of their Da Vinci collection. We brought you news of the IWC Da Vinci Automatic Replica Watches not long ago and, when compared to something like the IWC Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph, with its revamped circular case, it really shows you the range of changes coming into the lineup.

The IWC Replica Watch is sized at 40mm, which by modern standards can often be considered a unisex size. It’s slim at 10mm thick and the proportions are ideal for a watch that’s meant for both men and women. I, for one, don’t have much of an issue with a 40mm case and find these measurements to exist somewhere within the sweet spot in terms of comfort and versatility. It’s good to see IWC push women’s watches that aren’t exactly dainty or explicitly feminine as well. They made a similar move last year with the IWC Pilot’s Watch Automatic 36 which, funny enough, was the same size as the original Mark XI.

The dial is simple, which can mean elegant for some or boring for others. With a time-only layout and unobtrusive date placement at 6 o’clock sitting within a well-contrasted seconds track. Both IWC Replica Swiss Made the silver-plated and slate dial finishes serve as nice backdrops for the polished Arabic numerals and the lancet-shaped hands, which are both color-matched for their respective dials. One thing you’ll notice is that the twin frame bezel is actually quite pronounced, and its combination with the convex sapphire crystal results in a compact, vintage-inspired look.

We’ve seen IWC Knockoff Watches do some amazing work with Santoni and naturally, the silver dial Ref. IW356601 comes with a Santoni alligator leather strap fitted with a stainless steel pin buckle. It’s a logical pairing, though you can’t help but love the slightly more aggressive styling of the Ref. IW356602 with its polished stainless steel bracelet meant to match the slate dial.

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.
