IWC Replica Watches have been some of the best pilot watches that are priced modestly compared to their more elaborate in-house “Big Pilot” watches that go well into the five-figures.
Rather than just making some dial changes and calling it a day, IWC was considerate of proportionality and reduced the case size just 1mm down to 40mm Replica Watches. It’s a small difference, but when a case doesn’t match its dial, the difference is noticeable. Case thickness is 11mm, by the way. When you flip the watch over, the steel caseback shows that plane insignia that enthusiasts know well.
Some other minor changes to the case include bringing back the numerals indicating 6 and 9 o’clock and the two dots flanking either side of the triangle at 12 o’clock. Pilot watches can be outrageously sized, and I’m fairly certain IWC Copy Watches also released a 55mm wide “heritage” Big Pilot watch in 2016. While 40mm isn’t tiny, the inherent thin bezel that comes with pilot watches and the 50mm lug to lug width has the piece wear bigger than most other pieces this size.
Legibility and ease of reading are the defining factors a pilot watch has to possess, and the IWC Mark XVIII Replica Watches excels. Admittedly, the white dial version with white hands suffers a bit when compared to the black dial model which allows the benefit of contrasting monochromatic colors with its white hands.
