We’re calling it: this is IWC’s biggest release of the year — and it almost went unnoticed. Quietly appearing on the brand’s website, AAA US replica watches fans eventually discovered the new Pilot’s Watch Mark XX and were rightfully excited: it fills an important niche in the IWC catalog. An in-house movement and other subtle tweaks seem to offer the perfect everyday pilot’s fake watches for sale fans have called for.
The Mark XX might look familiar if you know IWC’s recent, or historical, pilot’s best replica watches. That’s because it’s very similar to the Mark XVIII, itself based on the Mark XI. That’s a lot of Marks and Roman numerals, but what you need to know is that the Mark XI was first made in 1948 for the British air force and has since become a legendary pilot’s watch among collectors.
The Mark XVIII was introduced in 2016 and immediately seen as the XI’s successor. Unlike so many pilot’s cheap copy watches (especially from IWC) it was smaller at 40mm (the historical Mark XI was 36mm), making Swiss movements replica IWC‘s iconic Pilot’s Watches line so much more accessible and wearable — and the design more or less nailed the spirit of the original XI.
There was just one problem. Well, perhaps more than one, if you ask nitpicky collectors, but a glaring issue was its sourced Sellita automatic movement — the same found in many and various much more affordable top super clone watches — paired to a $4,500 price tag. IWC makes many of its own movements, and you can even get an in-house movement in similar a similar case size in the Swiss made fake IWC Pilot’s Watches Automatic Spitfire, for less money — even if its design isn’t quite as historically connected.
The new 2022 replica IWC Mark XX watches now offers not only an IWC in-house automatic movement with an excellent 5-day power reserve, but a range of upgrades from the Mark XVIII touching everything from subtle design elements to specs and case dimensions. Though still measuring 40mm wide, the case has been slimmed by 0.2mm to 10.8mm — subtle, sure, but basically any slimming is welcome. Further, despite a slimmer case, a water resistance of 100m is significantly better than the Mark XVIII’s 60m.
You can read more about the many subtle design changes, if you’re so inclined, on coverage from sites like Hodinkee. One of the biggest complaints from enthusiasts regarding the date window also seems to have been addressed. The 1:1 fake IWC Pilot’s Watches Mark XX comes in black and blue dial variants on leather straps, leaving room for future releases to offer steel bracelets.
Overall, though, this looks much like the super-wearable everyday pilot’s perfect replica watches you’ve been waiting for from IWC. The catch? It doesn’t come cheap, at a price of $5,250, available online from the brand now.
