This new Cheap IWC Replica watch is, not the first time that IWC has combined a perpetual calendar with a chronograph in one of its pilot’s watches.Here, the base movement is now manufactured in-house – which, again, isn’t a novelty per se, however the QP/Chrono combo with in-house movement was, until now, reserved to the digital calendar complication.
Presented in a 43mm 18ct red gold case measuring 15.9mm thick, it has all the “Le Petit Prince” hallmarks. These include a striking sunburst blue dial, gold-plated propeller-shaped hands with elongated tips and stylized applied Arabic numerals and a brown calf leather strap. The dial is understandably busy but in typical IWC Replica Watches Sale-style is still quite legible.
Hours and minutes are displayed centrally, along with the chronograph hand. Running seconds are integrated into the month display on the sub-dial at six o’clock. The date and day of the week are shown on sub-dials at 3 and 9 o’clock respectively, while the IWC Replica Watches Swiss Made final sub-dial at 12 o’clock houses the combined hour and minute totaliser for the chronograph, as well as the perpetual moon phase. The year is shown through a small aperture between 7 and 8 o’clock.
Inside is the in-house manufactured calibre 89630. This is the same movement Best IWC Replica Watches used for the Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph. It offers a column-wheel, vertical clutch, flyback, automatic chronograph with 68 Hours of power reserve and a modern 4Hz frequency. Klaus’ perpetual calendar module is attached on top.
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.
Produced for the British Royal Air Force in the 1950s, the Mark XI is arguably the timepiece that put IWC Replica Sale on the path to becoming synonymous with pilot’s watches. The modern day IWC pilot’s watch collection started in 1994 with the introduction of the Mark XII, which was essentially the Mark XI in modern dress.
The new Pilot’s Replica Watch Mark XVIII Edition “Tribute to Mark XI” is a no-frills reissue that’s affordably priced. Ostensibly a remake of the military-issue Mark XI, the new limited edition edition is more precisely a Mark XII remake, having a similar dial featuring a date window at three. A triangle at 12 o’clock and baton markers at the quarters are taken from the vintage original, as are the pencil-shaped minute hand and baton hour hand.
The rest of the IWC Replica Watch is essentially stock Mark XVIII, which means a 40mm steel case with a soft iron cage inside for protection against magnetism. Inside the soft iron cage is the cal. 35111, which is actually a SW300, a clone of the ETA 2892. It’s automatic with a 42-hour power reserve.
I can say it’s attractively styled with a recognisable military inspiration, but because of the relatively slimness of the IWC Replica case versus its diameter, feels significantly flatter than the originals.
