IWC presented a pilot’s chronograph – the Pilot’s Replica WatchChronograph Spitfire Bronze – with plenty of reasons to love. “Vintaged”, smaller than the previous Pilot’s Chrono, equipped with a new manufacture movement and with a cool green dial and bronze case combination, it made quite an impression on us.
Basically, this watch was the modern iteration of the model that relaunched pilot’s watches at IWC Replica Watches. Yet, it was still large at 43mm and still powered by a Valjoux-based movement. There was room for improvement.
The case, even though in bronze, was smaller at 41mm in diameter. The dial, because of these new proportions, also felt more balanced, and it featured the cool display of the old IWC Replica pilot’s watches. And last but not least, the watch was fitted with a “manufacture” movement, something new in this collection.
The new IWC Replica Watches Swiss Made Chronograph Spitfire IW387901 is basically a steel version of the bronze model. The case keeps the same proportions, with a 41mm diameter and a 15.3mm thickness. Because of the different material and the different finishings, the watch offers a very different sensation on the wrist. The caseback is also in steel, with a Spitfire decoration.
Today, the Replica Watches retailer is presenting a special edition of the IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic, in red gold and, of course, with a blue dial.
This new 88-piece of theIWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic Replica Watches for Bucherer is obviously no more than a visual update of an existing watch, with a new case material and a new dial colour to be precise – which doesn’t prevent us to be pleased by this overall good looking watch.
In addition to the other existing blue watches, the IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic Bucherer Blue Editions now combine an 18k red gold case – something that already exits – IWC Replica Watches with a blue dial – something that also exists in the collection. It is the combination of these two that makes this watch special to Bucherer, as the blue dial is usually reserved for the steel case – under the ref. IW390303. The case of this blue edition is the same size, meaning 42mm in diameter x 14.2mm in height.
Here, the main update concerns the addition of gold-coloured hands, applied indices and numerals to the dial, in order to be consistent with the case material. Overall, theIWC Replica contrast between the warm gold case and the cold blue dial is satisfying. One small detail: the date disc is matching the dial and isn’t painted in white. It is paired with a brown Santoni alligator strap.
In 2002, IWC launched a watch that would later become a true cornerstone in the collection, a watch that many praised and loved, a watch that would define Best IWC Replica Watches as a true pilot’s watch manufacture: the Big Pilot. The first edition – the standard black dial version, Ref. IW5002 – was a modern re-introduction of an iconic German military watch, the B-Uhr.
Three generations of Big Pilot’s watches were introduced – IW5002, IW5004, and the current IW5009. If the concept remained basically the same, some evolutions are to be noted. For instance, the mid-life model Cheap IWC Replica was somehow decried by collectors because of a less legitimate dial display.
The evolution, compared to the standard black dial version, is entirely about the look. Dimensions, specifications and mechanics are the same in both versions of the watch. However, the case and dial are new.These two were IWC Replica Watches , however, rather apart in the collection, and did not feature the automatic 7-day power reserve movement and the central seconds/power reserve indicator display.
This Big Pilot’s Watch Heritage Bronze relies on the same 46.2mm x 15.4mm case IWC Replica Watches Swiss Made as the standard steel version. The shape is also the same. What changes is the material used: a bronze alloy with its defining dark-gold colour – when new – or greenish patina – after being worn intensively. This choice of material changes the perception of the watch, giving it a resemblance to old, military models. Also, bronze is a unique material that lives and changes as you wear the watch.
