IWC has partnered Replica Watches Tag Heuer Monaco with Laureus Sport for Good Foundation for the twelfth time to publish the IWC Pilot's Mark Mark Edition "Laureus Sport for Good Foundation" watch. Announced at the 2018 Laureus World Sports Awards in Monaco, the 1,500-piece limited series features a black ceramic case with the Laureus-branded blue sunburst dial. There was an IWC watch made for Laureus (a sports charity dedicated to helping underprivileged children around the world) and this is the follow-up to last year's edition of the Da Vinci Chronograph.
This edition shares the same dimensions as the standard Mark XVIII, a 41mm case at a height of 11mm, with a 51mm lug. The tick inside the Mark XVIII is the IWC caliber 35111, an automatic movement based on the Sellita SW300-1, and in true pilot's watch fashion, the movement is covered by an internal iron case to protect it from magnetism. Continuing their efforts to use ceramic in their cases and following the trend towards ceramic in Switzerland, IWC has chosen to present a black ceramic case on this special edition, creating a jet-black look that allows the blue dial to stand out on the ceramic.
However, the contrast to this black-black look is the titanium crown, which is not replica watches uk color-matched or coated with DLC, and disrupts the dark style of the watch. I would have liked to see IWC make more of an attempt to fuse the crown with the case rather than just leave it as is. Accompanying the titanium caseback is an engraving presented at IWC as part of its annual drawing competition hosting with Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, and is themed "time to be healthy", pun intended. The watch will also come on a printed calfskin strap, in black of course.
Ceramic cases have definitely been "in" the past couple of years, and it seems IWC wants to remain relevant in the ceramic arms race in Spain. I generally view these types of nonprofit partnerships more as a marketing opportunity for the watch brand, rather than for the benefit of the foundation, but nonetheless, it's nice to see the luxury community rolex replica hanging around to support what is legitimately a good cause, so one thumb up. Those who feel the blue and ceramic combination can purchase one of the IWC Pilot's Watch Mark XVIII "Laureus Sport for Good Foundation" watches for $ 5,650.
