JiiPee Wrote:A Mark XVII with an inhouse movement is not that easy to create. At the moment IWC just does not have a suitable inhouse caliber in production to replace ETA 2892.A 80111 caliber is so thick that the only way to get it inside Mark XVII case would be to leave the soft iron inner case away.Considering the practical limitations on what can be changed, my favourite alternatives of the day are:- A Saint Exupéry chrono 3878 with an ardoise dial instead of a brown one- A BP with a blue dial
