This short film presents IWC replica watch‘s historical reproduction work – “IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch Chronograph edition distribute to 3705” chronograph. Inspired by the pilot Ref. 3705, the first black ceramic watch case launched in 1994, it pays tribute to the innovative spirit of the mechanical watch industry to break through the quartz crisis in the 1990s.
Ref. 3705 ceramic fliegerchronograph is Replica IWC’s first pilot watch with a black ceramic case, equipped with a calibrated valjoux / ETA 7750 movement. At that time, watch lovers had not accepted the concept of ceramic watch case, so the production of this model was only 1000 pieces, which was announced to stop production. Until more than 20 years later, it attracted the attention of collectors again and became one of the most popular Fake IWC pilot works in the auction market.
Compared with the original Ref. 3705, the size of the new replica watch case is increased from 39mm to 41mm. The case, bottom, crown and timing button are made of “ceratanium” porcelain titanium independently developed by IWC replica, which has truly become an “all black ceramic” watch.
The dial continues the early design elements such as square pointer. The main change is that the position of the small second hand is moved to 6 o’clock and the 12-hour dial is moved to 9 o’clock. This change is mainly related to the movement structure. Due to the increase of the case size, the proportion of dial elements has also been fine tuned. The diameter of the three small dials is larger, and the time scale has been replaced with more readable non Serif Bold numbers.
Equipped with IWC replica watch 69380 automatic chain movement, swing frequency 28800vph and power reserve of 46 hours. The waterproof capacity of the watch is 60 meters.
With black calf leather strap, limited to 1000 pieces.
