IWC launched its 12th special-edition timepiece in support of, and in cooperation with, the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation. The watch, from the Schaffhausen-based brand’s Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII series, offers an eye-catching combo of a sleek black ceramic case with a deep blue dial.
The Cheap IWC Replica Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Edition “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation”,features a 41-mm black ceramic case, fronted by a convex, nonreflective sapphire crystal and sealed by an engraved titanium caseback and a screw-down crown. The vibrant blue color used for its dial is a signature of IWC Replica Watches special editions for Laureus, and the luminescent coating used on the sword-shaped black hour and minute hands ensures excellent nighttime readability.
The engraved image on the caseback, as on previous IWC Replica Laureus editions, reproduces the winning entry of a children’s drawing competition that IWC organizes in cooperation with the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, a charity that supports more than 100 programs worldwide to use “the power of sport” to affect positive social change.
Inside the case, protected against magnetic fields by a soft iron inner case, ticks the movement, IWC’s automatic Caliber 35111, with 25 jewels, a 28,800-vph frequency, and a 42-hour power reserve. The antimagnetic protection is a historical hallmark of Fake IWC’s Pilot’s Watches, which were built to withstand the conditions inside a cockpit; other aviator-friendly features include the hacking seconds function, which allows the wearer to easily synchronize the watch with a reference signal, and the securing of the sapphire crystal from sudden drops in air pressure.
The Pilot’s Replica Watch Mark XVIII is one of the cornerstones of IWC’s collection, along with the likes of the Portugieser Automatic and the Big Pilot. In the current iteration of the Pilot’s collection, IWC offers many variations of its entry-level aviator’s watch, including some different color options, a few materials variations, and even a throw-back model.These watches always feature rich blue dials and commemorative caseback engravings, and this model is no different, though here you also get the 41mm case rendered in glossy black ceramic too.
Why This Watch Matters
In theory, there’s nothing groundbreaking here: Best IWC Mark XVIII Replica Watches and a special watch for Laureus. However, this year’s iteration on the charity-focused limited edition is a real standout. Before this, you could get ceramic Pilot’s watches, but the Mark XVIII was only available with the very niche Top Gun Miramar dial configuration.
Simply put, this is an easy-to-love variation on a familiar theme. The blue dial is stunning and the black hands with luminous fill and red tip really ground the design. The black date disc is another little touch that elevates the design overall. I might have preferred matte ceramic, personally, but that’s very much a matter of individual taste. Coming in at $5,650, this is definitely at the top end of the Mark XVIII offerings, but it’s competitive in comparison with Cheap IWC Replica other ceramic models. If you’re looking to get a bad ass pilot’s watch, this should definitely be on your radar.
What hasn’t received as much attention as the Tribute to Pallweber and the Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon is the new series of Pilot’s watches that come with the lacquered dials that are ubiquitous throughout all the Jubilee models. Here, we have three new limited edition timepieces that are instantly identifiable as an iconic IWC Pilot Replica Watches, yet with a fresh sheen to them thanks to the new dial substance.
All the watches within the Jubilee collection follow a similar design code: their imprinted dials are all either white, with blued hands, or blue, with rhodium-plated hands, and are finished with multiple layers of lacquer to achieve a look reminiscent of vintage enamel-dialed pocketwatches.
The lacquering process is intense. Best IWC Replica Watches compares it to the production of high-quality piano lacquer, which after seeing the watches in person, seems fair. After being stamped and embossed, the brass blanks are coated with up to 12 layers of lacquer and then flat-polished. Finally, they are finished with a brush and given a high-gloss varnish. If the watch has a dial with any recesses, such as for a date window, these are also lacquered. The whole process ends up providing the watches with a gleam that is hard to take your eyes off of.
The Big Pilot’s Watch Annual Calendar Edition “150 Years” is the only model out of the three with an annual calendar complication. The month, date, and day are in the American-format and only need to be adjusted once a year at the end of February. The exhibition caseback provides a view of caliber 52850 which uses Fake IWC Watches trademark Pellaton winding system to offer a seven-day power reserve. It’s a stainless steel model that has a blue dial and measures in at 46.2 mm.
We also have two different versions of the new IWC Replica Watches Reviews. This is the first Big Pilot’s Watch with a large date display featuring numerals beneath the triangular index at 12 o’clock. It comes in blue and white. Both models feature a new movement, the caliber 59235. This is basically an upgraded, big date version of the hand wound caliber 59210 that has an eight-day power reserve and has been used in a variety of other IWC models. On the caseback side, you can find a power reserve. The unusual placement was called for in order to keep the minimalist nature of the Big Pilot intact.
