MKS Factory Published New Top Gun Ceramic Replica Watch

Replica IWC Top Tun Ceramic Watch

MKS is one of the oldest watch factiries in our market that make good quality replica watches, in my memory, it started to manufacture replica IWC watches, even easier than ZF, if you want to buy a good quality replica IWC watch, I only recommend ZF and MKS factory. The price of IWC from MKS factory is much cheaper than that of ZF, sometimes there are also special offers coming from MKS, in a word, if you keep some focus on this factory, probably you will get a surprise. MKS, its name tells you everything, it was a very famous factory in the past, even more popular than ZF, because this factory makes the best replicas of Mark series replicas of IWC, and a lot of people were willing to buy IWC Mark watches, so MKS has a high reputation in the past. Now, more people are likely to buy the products from Noob and IWC from ZF, so the popularity of MKS decreased, this is understandable. However, for some simple models from IWC Pilots collection, you will not regret after purchasing from MKS.

Today, I want to introduce one new IWC watch from MKS factory, it is a Top Gun and made with black ceramic. At my first sight, the watch looks very cool, black ceramic case, strong lume light and black nylon band, these elements make the watch become one of the choices for people who want one military watch. However, such military-style watch is only for casual wearing, there are military elements on the watch, but it is not made for military use.

The ceramic case is 41mm in diameter and 11mm thick.The matte finish on the case is fine, it feels very good and like real when you touch by your hands, bezel, crown and case back are all screwed down together, the construction of the entire case is completed on this replica according to genuine watch, especially the inside construction between the case back and middle case, to ensure a good water resistance on this replica, the factory need to guarantee that the bezel and case back can be screwed down into the middle case perfectly.

The dial is ok, very classic Pilot’s dial style, high readability because of the white markers on black background. About the dial, not too much criticism on it, it is just ok, so many I have seen and tired. The watch uses a Miyota 9015 movement, very reliable, low repairing rate, this is the advantage of Miyota movement. About the band, it is a black nylon, not made with nylon material completely, because the other side is leather. Actually I do not like this design on the band, why did not IWC prepare two bands for this watch, one black leather strap and one nylon band, I do not think the outside nylon look very good on this ceramic watch.

Check photos below, the new Spitfire looks better on its brown leather strap, I like the Spitfire more.

Replica IWC Top Gun Blue

IWC Top Gun Green Replica

Actually I have introduced two Top Gun replica watches on my blog, they are IW388002 and Top Gun 5019, each of them is made by a big famous factory and has a great quality. Here I am going to bring another Top Gun watch, it is the replica of latest IWC model published in 2016 SIHH. Compared with the two Top Gun replicas I posted before, this one was added Chronograph function, under the military appearance, the watch becomes more practical. The biggest advantage is it uses a bold and striking blue color on the dial. About this model, the factory made two versions, blue and green, please see the photos above.

IWC Top Gun Ceramic Watch Replica

Top Gun Ceramic Case

Fully made of black ceramic, the case is brushed, it is a big watch, bigger than Submariner because the case diameter is 46mm. The crown and chrono pushers are Titanium made, so is the solid case back, which has a classic TOP GUN logo. Seeing from the side, the case has an obvious arc, especially the lugs, so it could fit your hand well when contacting with your wrist. The engraving details on crown are delicate, you can see every letter on it clearly. Real ceramic makes the replica watch feel a little heavy, and the brushed finish will let you feel its high quality texture more well.

TOP GUN Pattern on Back

Blue markers and hands form a sharp contrast to black dial color. Please notice that not all hour markers are luminous, only the markers at 3, 6, 9 and 12 are applied SuperLume C1 luminescence, so are hour and minte hands. There are two small dials, the one at 6 o’clock is for small seconds display, while the top one at 12 is for 60-minute chronograph. Central second-chronograph hand is striking, it is black but has a white tip and flight end. The date wheel in fan-shaped displayed at 3 has white font in black background, this also increases its readability.

Finally it comes to the band I favor most, the band is made of nylon on outside, while the inner side is made of genuine black leather and has IWC logo. The keepers on the band are all fabric. The band design guarantees a good wearing comfort on the side contacting with your skin, while its nylon outlook also adds points to military feeling to the whole watch.

IWC Top Gun Steel Clasp

Ok, here is the lastest news coming from the market, two top grade Pilots replicas, on Sunday, I will bring you guys another great review.

IWC Top Gun Miramar IW388002 Review(KW Replica VS Genuine)

Hey everybody, before introducing the replica, I’d like you to know some specifications of the genuine watch.

Metallic ceramic case and matte black dial are two main features of Top Gun Miramar. White, grey and green classic colors highlight the military style of the watch. The strap material is made of extremely tough Nylon that is often used on pilot’s watches. Unique outer minute scales and inner hour circle remind people of Chronometer in the 1930s and 1940s as well as the rich heritage of IWC pilot’s series. The date display is also unique, which is very similar to cockpit’s altimeter. This timepiece is equipped with IWC in-house 89365 movement, after being modified, it can offer 68 hours power reserve. Soft iron inner case can protect precision device against the effect from magnetic.

Today, the leading role is from KW, it is a quartz watch and very cheap. It’s quite a bit harsh if you take a quartz watch to compare with an authentic watch. However, you can see manufacturer’s effort from the replica’s details. It’s a touching moment when thinking of its selling price after making the review.

The difference between genuine IW 388002 and KW replica:

Movement: genuine watch uses 89365 mechanical chrongoraph movement, the replica is equipped with Japan Miyota Co.6S11 quartz with SONY battery.

Case material: genuine uses ceramic case, the replica is made of stainless steel with black pvd coating.

Inner case: Soft iron inside case to protect device against the effect from magnetic. Fake does not have the antimagnetic soft iron, because it is a quartz watch.

Crown: genuine watch uses screw-in crown, the replica is directly inserted into.

Crystal: arched sapphire crystal with double ar coating on genuine watch. The replica uses mineral crystal.

Water resistance: 6-bar water resistant on genuine watch. All replica watches are just daily waterproof.

Two top gun replicas here. The left one is from small factory, the right one is made by KW.

Two IWC Top Gun Miramar Replica Watches

I think KW version dial’s color is lighter than genuine while samll factory version is a bit deeper, which is oviously the biggest difference.

Date font and shape. KW version has the same date font as genuine, there is groove around the edge of the date window, the replica from small factory has a different date font.

Top Gun Date Window Difference

Case tone and logo. Although the case material is not ceramic on KW version, the texture and polishing on case is almost the same as genuine.

Case Polishing

Minute hand’s length. The length of the KW minute hand is same as genuine, while the replica from small factory one is a bit shorter.

Replica Minute Hand Length

The central red circle and 6:00 small dial. KW has the same red line as genuine, smooth design on the surface of 6:00 subdial. The replica from small factory does not have notch, there are patterns on the subdial.

Digit “20” on minute-chronograph counter. See the picture below, the first one is KW replica, the second on is from small factory, the last is genuine.

Engravings on case rim. No black painting on KW replica.

Crown. Notice the second one, you will find a small notch on the replica, both KW and genuine watch do not have this feature.

Crown Replica vs Genuine

The color of second-chronograph hand. KW has a darker big second hand than the genuine.

Second-Chronograph Hand Replica vs Genuine

This is an evaluation made in a early time, and now clean it up again. All I wanna say is that there are not too many good fake quartz watches in the market, and this is a classic quartz watch from KW, even it has some imperfect parts, while we still could see the efforts which the manufacturer has made. I am impressed by its superior texture, maybe it has been discontinued in production, this could be used as an aniversary review.

Replica IWC Top Gun 5019 Black Ceramic Watch with Nylon Strap Review

IWC Top Gun Ceramic Replica

Today, I will introduce another black guy that is full of military style, here I have given reviews on several replica military models such as Zenith Pilot, Omega 007 and Submariner 5517, this time, the IWC replica watch I am going to review is an authentic military pilot watch, its full black appearance just exactly proves this point. The watch is a high end clone of Top Gun 5019, the most unique place on this replica is that it features real ceramic case, wearing such a timepiece will make you look more tough.

Case Work

First, the full ceramic case is moulded from one piece, this process needs higher watch-making technology and skilled watch masters to complete. Whether the size, lugs width or engravings, they are 1:1 replicated according to genuine. The black ceramic case has top-level brushing process, touch the case by hands, it gives you a genuine feeling.

IWC Black Dial

The black dial extremely simple, with white hour markers and printing, the dial gives a high readability. There is a small subdial at 3 o’clock indicating 7 days power reserve, however, this function is faux on this replica, the small hand is fixed permanently. The central second hand has an unqie tip in white color, its another end is iconic Top Gun airplane logo in red. A small square date window is placed at 6. The replicas features a superlumed dial, which will gives you strong green light at night.

Nylon Strap and Clasp

The last two things that make me love this replica IWC deeply are its special caseback engravings and nylon strap in black. All high end replica watches have good engravings on caseback and clasp, so is this one, you can check its “IWC” engraving on the clasp, it is deeply curved. The black nylon straps add more military favor to this replica, which makes it full of tough charm but absolutely a low-key timepiece active on your wrist. The following is the specifications of this IWC Top Gun replica.
