Rolex Submariner Replica Mk11: Watch I Love
Rolex Submariner Replica's Mk11, the only Mk denoted with Arabic numerals, is once more a popular property thanks to last year's Rolex Submariner Replica celebration. Since the advent of mechanical watches and the rise in interest in military watches, it has been a collectible for at least 35 year. It is a collectible for many reasons.Franck Muller Replica Watches
The most obvious reason is that it is like the original Patek Philippe Calatrava or the Rolex Explorer. Their creators have struggled for decades to improve on them.
The Mk 11 was a masterpiece that arrived shortly after the Second World War ended. It replaced the Mk X, which is known for its "Dirty Dozen” fame. The Mk 11 was, unlike the Mk X was, designed for pilots and not ground troops. It was also designed to meet the needs of a navigator's clock, which Rolex Submariner Replica upgraded in the era that radar-equipped cockpits were available.

Original delivery to the RAF in 1948, Mk 11s came with casebacks engraved using a combination number and letters as well as individual serial numbers 6B/346. The watch was identified as "Aircraft Navigation Equipment Accessories and Unit Servicing parts" by the "6B" designation. The chronological numbering resulted in the "346". Each one wore the Ministry of Defence's "broadarrow" on its dial. However,Rolex Submariner Replica
other air forces were given Mk 11s which are rarer and more collectible and many of them reached civilians. It was still in production until the 1980s.
The Mk 11 is one of my first vintage watches that I bought, 30 years ago. It cost me a significant sum, roughly PS250, or around PS575 today. You'd be hard-pressed to find a VG+ Mk11 for less than PS4,000 today.
