评论 [Review]
During World War II, the British Ministry of Defence placed orders with 12 watch factories including Jaeger-LeCoultre, IWC, Omega and Longines in accordance with its own military watch ‘standards’. Military watches made in accordance with these ‘standards’ are collectively referred to as W.W.W (abbreviation for Waterproof Wrist Watch). They also have another name, ‘Mark X’. The production year of the IWC “Mark” series is like this: Mark X, 1936 to 1944; Mark X, 1940 to 1947; Mark 11, 1948 to 1984; Mark X, beginning in 1993; Mark XⅤ , Starting in 1999; Mark XVI, starting in 2006. The Mark with Jaeger-LeCoultre 884/2 calibre was quickly obscured by the subsequent halo of Mark XV because the movement was relatively weak and the power reserve was also significantly limited.
