The new IWC Replica Big Pilot’s Watch US is not getting any major redesign, but there are several aesthetic changes that overall work well and succeed in tapping into said history. You’ve also got the new High Quality IWC Pilot’s Copy Watch Chronograph, which has some design changes of its own being made to “freshen” up the look by, somewhat ironically, looking to the past for visual cues.
The new IWC Big Pilot’s Watch sees the return of the triangular index back below the chapter ring at 12 o’clock. A simple move by the brand, but I personally think that this looks a lot cleaner than having the IWC Replica Watches triangle wedged up top. The “9” also returns, which I like rather than a unnumbered hour marker. If you look carefully, you’ll notice the numerals are bolder than the old model and the five minute markers are narrower. What hasn’t changed is the power reserve dial and the date window at 6 o’clock.
As with the new IWC Replica Pilot Watches, there is a Santoni calfskin strap on this watch, this one in black. In terms of the movement, it is unchanged and the IWC Big Pilot Watch still uses the automatic 51111 Calibre, operating at 3 Hz and providing 7 days power reserve. Also unchanged, unlike many new Pilot Watches, are the case dimensions which are still 46mm wide and 16mm high. The watch is water resistant to 60 meters.
The movement and case are unchanged, with the automatic 79320 Calibre. It operates at 4Hz and will provide 44 hours of power reserve. The stainless steel case is still 43mm wide and 15mm high IWC Knockoff Watches, providing 60 meters of water resistance.
Rather than just making some dial changes and calling it a day, IWC Replica Watches US was considerate of proportionality and reduced the case size just 1mm down to 40mm. It’s a small difference, but when a case doesn’t match its dial, the difference is noticeable. Case thickness is 11mm, by the way.
Some other minor changes to the case include bringing back the numerals indicating 6 and 9 o’clock and the two dots flanking either side of the triangle at 12 o’clock. Pilot IWC Replica Watches can be outrageously sized, and I’m fairly certain IWC also released a 55mm wide “heritage” Big Pilot watch in 2016. While 40mm isn’t tiny, the inherent thin bezel that comes with pilot watches and the 50mm lug to lug width has the piece wear bigger than most other pieces this size.
Legibility and ease of reading are the defining factors a pilot watch has to possess, and the IWC Mark XVIII Replica Watches excels. Admittedly, the white dial version with white hands suffers a bit when compared to the black dial model which allows the benefit of contrasting monochromatic colors with its white hands.
There is no shortage of options for those looking for a pilot watch like the Replica IWC Mark XVIII and even more once you start to factor in models that are chronographs. For the sake of staying on track, we are going to stick to simple three-hand options here.
The IWC Fake Watches Bremont Solo comes in a bigger case, measuring 43mm wide with a 49.5mm lug to lug length, and also a bit thicker at 13.5mm. The 36-hour power reserve BE-36AE movement is a modified ETA 2836 that Bremont does a good job at decorating, viewable through the exhibition caseback.
