Interesting question. I had a customer in my bookselling days who owned a couple IWCs, which were fine, but kind of dull. They strike we as watches worn by boring WASP old guys.
The Mk dials and handsets look 'flat' to me, which makes them look, to my eye, cheaper than they are. I like the style, I'd like to wear one, but I see watches that look as good for much less.
They seem to me to be commonly bought by people with little imagination who collect "iconic" things. They have a Rolex Sub, Speedie Pro, and a IWC Mk in their collection. A Reverso, too, if they're lucky. They probably own Ray Ban aviators and their jeans are 501s.
Having said the above, I want one.
