IWC Schaffhausen replica has announced the addition of three new members to its diver’s replica watches family, namely the Aquatimer Chronograph Edition “La Cumbre Volcano”, limited to 500 pieces, is dedicated to the eponymous volcano in the Galapagos Islands; the Aquatimer Automatic 2000 will now be available in an eye-catching black-and-yellow combination; and the Aquatimer Automatic Edition “Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau” is the latest special edition produced in honour of the French scuba-diving pioneer.

“Diver’s watches have held a special place in our collection since the launch of the first Aquatimers in 1967. They’re sporty, dynamic and radiate an unmistakable aura – and that makes them perfect for expeditions underwater but also on land,” says Georges Kern, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen, summing up their attraction.

In 2014, the Schaffhausen watchmaking manufacturers presented a completely updated Aquatimer collection. The cheap fake watches family is now being extended to include three new models.

The Aquatimer Chronograph Edition “La Cumbre Volcano” (Ref. IW379505) will be produced in a limited edition of 500 watches. The timepiece features the IWC-manufactured 89365-calibre movement. Water-resistant to 30 bar, the chronograph has a flyback function, automatic winding and a power reserve of 68 hours. The dive time can be set using the mechanical external/internal rotating bezel. This ingenious in-house development from IWC combines the legibility of an internal rotating dive ring with the ease of use of an external bezel. The IWC SafeDive system ensures that the inner ring can be moved only anticlockwise. The luminescent coating on the hands, numeralsand internal rotating bezel guarantee optimum legibility under water.

With this special edition, IWC Schaffhausen addresses the issues facing the Galapagos archipelago in the Pacific Ocean.

Since 2009, the company has been working as partner of the Charles Darwin Foundation to preserve this fragile ecosystem and its fascinating biodiversity. The limited-edition timepiece is dedicated to the La Cumbre volcano on the island of Fernandina. The internal rotating bezel, central seconds and minute hand of the chronograph display are dark red in colour to symbolize seething magma. The engraving on the case back shows the volcano erupting. The stainless-steel case is coated with matte black rubber, which gives the replica watches sale its singular feel. Every case is individually pressure- and heat-bonded with the rubber. Part of the proceeds from sales is used to support the Charles Darwin Foundation.

IWC Schaffhausen’s Aquatimer Automatic 2000 (Ref. IW358001) sees the launch of a model that now comes with yellow hands and numerals and a black dial. The origins of this timepiece go all the way back to 1982 and a watch designed by Ferdinand A. Porsche for mine clearance divers. Water-resistant to a stunning 2,000 metres, the Aquatimer Automatic 2000 is a serious piece of equipment intended for ambitious amateur and divers alike. Its power comes from an IWC-manufactured 80110-calibre movement with automatic winding and a 44-hour power reserve. The watch has a mechanical external/internal rotating bezel, the SafeDive system and luminescent elements. The movement is housed in a 46-millimetre titanium case. The engraving of a deep-sea diver on the case back and the black rubber strap complete the overall sporty look.

Introducing Cheap Replica IWC Mark XVII Watches

In this week’s edition, we come to another important series from IWC Pilot’s replica watches and, by extension, the Mark series. The modern day Pilot’s series traces its origins to the 1930s and ’40s as part of the B-Uhr watches developed for German pilots in the years surrounding World War II. While IWC is sometimes credited with developing the first watch in this style — specifically the B-Uhr-style triangle with two dots at the 12 o’clock mark — it was in collaboration with a number of other German and Swiss replica watches manufacturers that the style came about. Within the complete modern series of the IWC Pilot’s Replica Watches there exists a multitude of variations, from chronographs to GMTs to perpetual calendars, but the most historically relevant of them all still exist today: the Mark XVII and the Big Pilot.

Replica_IWC_Mark_11_VintageThis week we will be covering the first of these two: the new Replica IWC Mark XVII Pilot’s Watches — the most recent descendant to the historic 1940s Mark IX. This watch features a 41-mm, stainless steel case, a black dial with white accents, and classic pilots’-watch sword-shaped hour and minute hands. The watch has the iconic triangle with two dots at the 12 o’clock mark, tick marks at the other quarter hours, and Arabic numerals for the remaining hours. At the 3 o’clock mark also resides an altimeter-inspired, curved date display. This watch features central hacking seconds for accurate time adjustment (perfect for a pilot), and a soft iron inner case to protect the movement against magnetic fields. The Mark XVII (below) is currently priced by IWC at $4,500.

If you’re curious, a “central hacking seconds” function, sometimes also known as hack or stop seconds, is a mechanism common in aviation-oriented watches in which the seconds hand stops if the crown is pulled out. This is rather helpful for pilots (admittedly moreso prior to the invention of quartz watches and satellites), because it allows them to accurately adjust their watches to the second before taking off.

Replica_IWC_Mark_17_frontThe IWC Mark XVII is a very different replica watches for sale than the Mark 11 (the original reference in the series), and in the 67 years since this collection’s release — and subsequent re-release in 1994 as the Mark XII — much has changed. As an evolution of the Mark 11, the Mark XVII is barely recognizable; the 11 was developed as a reliable, utilitarian military watch that could be mass produced and that catered specifically to the specifications of the British Royal Air Force. However, when the XVII is compared to the more recent Mark XII, and to later iterations including the Mark XV and XVI (both XIII and XIV were skipped due to numerical superstitions), the style of the contemporary watch is more in line with its predecessors.

The few similarities to the Mark 11 lie in the bold quarter hours, triangle mark at 12 o’clock, similar font for the hour numerals, and a clear lean toward readability with the black and white-accented dial. However, when the XVII is compared to the XII, the focus on the luxury aspect of the watch becomes more apparent — the improved quality of the finishing, the date wheel at 3 o’clock, and the continued focus on readability remains.

Replica_IWC_MarkXVII_recliningWhat IWC has certainly shown throughout this series, especially when the Mark XVII is compared to its predecessors, is a bold willingness to grow. The changes IWC has made over time to the series have mostly been for the sustained and continued relevance of the model. Sword-shaped hands, unusual date indicator, a different movement (with a base by ETA rather than Jaeger-LeCoultre) — if any of these changes had occurred too suddenly from one iteration of the Mark series to another, purists might have taken issue. But since the 1990s, the brand has solidly established the Mark series as one meant to evolve — and the Mark XVII has done so appropriately.

Replica_IWC_Mark-12_planeIn case you can’t tell, I like the modern IWC Mark series; more specifically, I like the Mark XVII. It pays respect to the history of the series, with subtle nods to both the ’40s and the early ’90s, in ruggedness, functionality, and readability, but also is very much its own watch, bringing a variety of modern touches together. The IWC Mark XVII happens to be one of the smaller copy watches within the complete Pilot’s Replica Watches series, and it has some of the broadest overall appeal of all of the brand’s watches. IWC has done its job well; now we only need wait for the release of the Mark XVIII.
