I have heard of the IWC Mark X for many years but I have never seriously consider to keep one as my focus in the past has been on Rolex watches. My recent new attempts at collecting military time piece has prompted me to study and understand the world of IWC. There are many fakes, or Frankenstein watch around especially for such collectable piece.
Luckily, I did my home work and managed to get valuable information from the net: http://www.time514.com/MarkX.htm
With the acquisition of the IWC Mark XI, it is natural that I will have to pair it with the IWC Mark X from the 1949s. Even though the watch is 36mm and 35mm (small in todays's standard), ther are very comfortable to wear. The dials design are so simple and timeless.. Life is good!
I have just sent the watch for servicing...
