Pilot Mark XV Ref. IW3253-01
IWC's Pilot line has produced some timeless classics since it first debuted the range in the late 1990s. A particularly retro treat is the squared-off hour hand from the earliest iterations present on this model. The stainless steel case of the Mark XV measures a very wearable 38mm in diameter and roughly 9mm thick which makes it a winner for those who appreciate low-profile watches.
IWC’s Pilot model IW3253-01 is water resistant up to 60 meters (197 ft). The round case is paired with a black color dial with stick-shaped hands and Arabic numerals, hour markers, and minute track, covered by a sapphire glass. A solid case back is over the back of the watch case.
The case is in overall good condition with some abrasions and superficial scratches throughout, consistent with the use and age of the piece. The case back has light surface scuffs in keeping with the rest of the watch. The buckle has equivalent wear and scuffing throughout. The strap has been replaced with an aftermarket leather croc strap in burgundy red.
During our quality control check, any necessary adjustments were made to ensure the watch was functioning as intended.
This IWC Pilot Mark XV Ref. IW3253-01 is offered as a watch only. This watch will be shipped in a Greenwich Time watch roll for safety during shipping.
