ZF Factory Published Replica IWC Top Gun Miramar IW389001 and IW389002 Ceramic Watches

Two important IWC watches are just published by ZF factory in our market, they are from Pilot chrono series of IWC, Top Gun IW389001 and IW389002. Both watches use ceramic case and military-style nylon band. They are good choices for military watch fans. Here I post specification of these two watches.

Movement: Asia Valjoux 7750, Real Chronograph Function
Case: 44mm*17mm, High Quality Imported Black Ceramic
Crystal: Sapphire with Swiss Standard AR Coating
Dial: IW389001 with Black Dial, IW389002 with Green Dial. Green Superlume on Markers and Hands
Bracelet: Nylon Clad Calf Leather Strap with Deployant Clasp
Water Resistant: 30m

Both replica watches have black ceramic case that is brushed, whether in the front or sides, the entire case is brushed, both chronograph buttons are also brushed with polished round edge. The case diameter is up to 44mm, because of ceramic material, the case feels heavy. Case back has correct engravings in brushed surface, there are “TOP GUN” sculpture and other engravings.

IW389001 is in whole black, including the dial, it is the model I prefer. While IW389002 has a green dial. There is one little difference between the two watches on the dial, that is IW389002 has a red circle on the center of the dial to display 12 hours. Two subdials are positioned at 12 and 6 o’clock. The subdial with a small red hand is small seconds subdial, while the subdials at 12 o’clock have two small dials in sunken design, the outer one is 60-minute chronograph counter, while the inner one is 12-hour chronograph counter. All hour markers are in white, the markers at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock are applied with luminous material, they will emit a strong green light at night.

Compared with the green dial of IW389002, I like the black one of IW389001 more. It has a match of white details in blackground, which greatly increases the dial readability. Black looks cooler too.

About the movement, ZF claimed that it is a clone IWC 89361, actually it is modified from a Chinese chronograph movement, we call it Asia Valjoux 7750, whatever behind the solid case back, the movement can completely achieve all functions of genuine watch. Besides, the stability of this type of Asia Valjoux 7750 has been tested for more than 10 years, it is trustworthy.

Watch band looks nylon on the outside, but it is actually made of calf leather, you can see it on the back side. The nylon face outside can prevent rain and water drops when washing your hands, while the genuine leather that touches your skin will bring you a great wearing comfort. So such type of band has multiple purposes. The buckle on the band is crafted very well and has a good brushing finish.

The review is done, let’s appreciate their acutal photos below.

Another Great Work From MK Factory – Replica IWC Pilot Mark XI with Green Nylon Strap

IWC Pilot Mark XI Replica

IWC Pilot always attracts me by their military watch outlook. And among all Pilots watches, Mark series is the most popular. On our market, there are two main factories that are replicating IWC Mark watches, they are MK and V6. Maybe you have bought good quality ones from other small factories, but I have to say they are not in top quality, the best Mark series replicas must come from MK and V6. Actually one friend of mine introduced the Mark XVI replica made by MK factory before on his website at Susanwatches.ru. And now the watch has become a best seller once being introduced on his site. Besides Mark XVI, there are other models that are also perfectly cloned, including Mark XVIII and XVII. Today, I went to our watch market again, and found a new art work on the storefront of MK factory, it is IWC Mark XI, firstly I was attracted by its green nylon band. I love watches with nylon strap. When I checked it carefully, I found its dial design is distinctive, Mark XI has an unique dial that is different from other Mark models. And the green nylon band and unique dial design make Mark XI so special among those watches in MK factory store. So I borrowed this replica watch from the factory and took some photos to share with you guys.

Let us see the dial first. It is in black white white markers and printings. Hands are completely different other IWC Mark series’. Have you noticed the hour hand, it is reverse. Hour markers use Arabic numbers except a big triangle mark at 12 o’clock. Date window is set at 3 o’clock, on the left side of the 3:00 hour marker. The dial also has other subtle difference if you compare Mark XI and Mark XVII or XVIII. Green nylon band is also one highlight. Nylon strap is a great match for the watch, it is perfectly in line with the military theme of the watch. One pair of distressed leather band could also create such effect, but a modern alligator leather strap will not.

Case is made of 316L stainless steel and brushed. It is measured to be 40mm in diameter. From side view, the case has a nice arc degree, so this ensure the watch could fit your wrist perfectly. Crown uses screw-in construction like genuine and there are delicate engravings. On solid case back, there are six notches that are exclusive to IWC Mark series. Great polishing work you can see on the back. Opening the case back, you will find a soft iron cage that is antimagnetic between case back and movement, which is the same as genuine Mark XI. By the way, the bracelet is polished beautifully. The front face is brushed while its edges are polished. There are also “IWC” on the front and other engravings on back side. The buckle pin is polished. Now at last, the watch specification will be listed below:
