When talking about Pilot’s watch, the Mark series from IWC must be on the list, they have a classic design, the Big Pilot from IWC also meets people’s need for large Pilot’s watch, I remembered my first automatic watch, it is a Seiko, yes, a genuine watch, its has a very similar design to the old IWC Mark series watch, I bought this watch because I was deeply in love with IWC Pilot’s watch at that time. When I just entered this field, the first replica watch which I think as a super clone is a Mark XVI made by MK factory, it has been a very long time now. Now the popularity of IWC Mark series replicas has declined, and V7 is the best source to get replicas of IWC Mark series watches, first, they have a full collection, second, V7 is the first watch manufacturer to make the replica when there is a new Mark series model published by IWC. MK now has changed its name to MKS, they still make good quality replicas of IWC Mark series watches, but MKS does not update their catalog as quick as V7 does. What about ZF? Absolutely they have the strength to manufacture super clone IWC Mark series watches, they should try and offer us a genuine movement option, why put so much money in producing the Submariner? Now ZF still trying to sell their Submariner, and nobody purchases.
V7 published three Mark XX watches, each differentiates in dial color, there are dial color options of green, black and blue. The black and blue ones always look classic like the old IWC Mark series watch, while I like this green Mark XX more, it looks more fresh and modern.
The case of the new Mark XX still has a 40mm diameter like Mark 18, but its case thickness is reduced because the soft iron cover is taken off, now the case has a 10.83mm thickness. The case has a brushing finish, its streamlined edge has a smooth polishing finish, which is like the finish of the bezel. The height of the bezel and its slope are exactly the same as that of genuine watch. There is a plastic on the case back protecting being scratched, you can also see a sticker with factory name V7 on the case back. By the way, the airplane sculpture on the center looks nice, you will like it just at a first glance, but you may not decide to buy the replica after comparing this logo with that of genuine. Just like the S. L. C. logo on some replica Panerai watches, there are always differences.
The green dial looks beautiful and has a very high level of completion, both hour markers and hands have enhanced luminescence that looks very strong, not sure if it will last as long as that of genuine. However, not like before, now you can not easily find flaws on the dial of these super clone watches, every watch factory is trying to make the closest dial, but sometimes they ignored the finish of the sculpture on the case back, I have seen the sculpture engravings on a lot of replica watches, they have a good finish but can not be called to be first class, I think all watch factories should pay attention to this.
The replica Mark XX has two movement options. One is real Swiss SW300, price is higher. The other is a Sea-gull movement, which has a very close outlook and same function as Swiss ETA 2892, we usually call it Asian 2892, the movement picture below shows an Asian 2892 movement. Asian 2892 movement is also very stable, but SW300 is more accurate, but the replica with SW300 is much more expensive.
