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.
We have the brand new IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch Mark XVIII Top Gun Miramar and the refreshed IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Top Gun Miramar.
The IWC Pilot’s Watch Top Gun Miramar has slimmed down to a 44mm case with a slick combined hour and minute totalizer at 12:00, and now uses a single-date window. As before, the US IWC Replica Watches chronograph is equipped with a titanium crown and pushers, along with IWC’s in-house manufactured 89361 calibre, with a flyback function and 68 hours of power reserve, which is fully shielded with a soft-iron inner cage for enhanced magnetic protection in the cockpit.
The all-new IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Top Gun Miramar, which pays homage to IWC Replica Watches from the 1940s with a classic observer “B-Uhr” style dial fitted to an all-new 41mm ceramic case. As IWC’s most entry-level ceramic offering, the Mark XVIII is fitted with many of the same features as its big brother, including the same titanium crown, 6-bar water resistance and soft-iron cage for anti-magnetic protection. It’s powered by IWC’s 30110-calibre movement, which is a subtly modified ETA 2892 with a 42-hour power reserve.
In keeping with the Top Gun’s military theme, both watches will come standard on a sporty, drab olive green, embossed calfskin strap, paying homage to the original Mark 11, which Replica IWC considers a worthy and handsome upgrade to the NATO straps of yesteryear.
The new IWC Replica Big Pilot’s Watch is not getting any major redesign, but there are several aesthetic changes that overall work well and succeed in tapping into said history.

As with the new 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 Fake Watches 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 High Quality IWC Replica 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, providing 60 meters of water resistance.
Carrying the reference 3905, this automatic chronograph is 45mm wide with a steel case which, including the bezel, is some 16.5mm thick. With a solid caseback and an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, the IWC Pilot’s Timezoner Chronograph Replica meets all of IWC’s requirements for a pilot’s watch and is water resistant to 60 meters.
The IWC Pilot’s Timezoner Chronograph watch’s useful feature list is supported by IWC’s calibre 89760, a 4hz movement that offers 68 hours of power reserve, a date at three, hours and minutes recorded on the sub dial at twelve, and a jumping hour travel function. The IWC Replica Watches not only features a unique way of changing timezones, it also uses a somewhat strange worldtime/GMT display that links the local 12-hour hand with the 24-hour hand.
Press the bezel down and turn it in either direction to set the local and 24-hour hands backwards or forwards. If you cross the date line, the date will advance or retreat accordingly. With the US IWC Replica Watches set correctly, you can simply turn the bezel until your new local city is at twelve and the time will be updated to suit the new locale. Cities with daylight saving time have a small “s” position that will enable a summer setting to ensure the correct time is shown. The entire process is done without affecting the movement’s accuracy or halting the progress of the seconds or minute hand.
As the timezone change is so simple and so quick, the Replica IWC Pilot’s Timezoner Chronograph manages to cover the spread between traditional crown-operated jump-hour GMTs and 24-hour independent hands that offer a view of a second timezone but no handy way of updating the current time to a new zone.
Beyond the obvious omissions of the exotic alligator strap and the altimeter-style date window – both of which polarized fans – there’s a lot to like about the new IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch Mark XVIII. But first and foremost is probably how it feels more like a traditional pilot watch, in what appears to be the result of an exercise in pure restraint on IWC’s part.
The Cheap IWC Replica into the good graces of pilot watch enthusiasts, is that there’s an aesthetic simplification with a focus on legibility and classic styling. We have a subtly brushed stainless steel case, matte leather strap and a high-contrast dial that could easily pass for a German watch made by Sinn or Damasko – and believe us, this utilitarian look is a good thing because it hearkens to the IWC Replica Watches many have a nostalgic love for.
Getting back to the point of legibility, it is another mark of a true pilot’s watch and US IWC Replica Watch has delivered in spades. The IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII is a portrait of sharp, monochromatic contrasts, enhanced by a subtly domed sapphire crystal which has been finished with an anti-reflective coating on both sides.
Just don’t expect a light show, as only the hands, 12:00 triangle and indices are generously filled with luminous paint, though there is enough to make them pop on the dial. However, the minimalist approach to lume isn’t entirely out of tune with the rest of IWC Replica pilot collection and shouldn’t compromise low-light legibility as the contrast of the hands against the dial is as crisp as ever. This is particularly true with the exceptional matte white dial variant, a welcome addition to the Mark family.
The IWC Ingeniuer Chronograph Replica Watches features a rose gold case, the IWC Ingeniuer Chronograph Edition “Rudolf Caracciola” is in a stainless steel case, and the IWC Ingeniuer Chronograph Edition “W 125” is a titanium version. These last two will each have a 750-watch run.
The new 42mm-wide and 15mm-high case features two totalizers, small seconds dial, and tachymeter on the outer edge. US IWC Replica says this design is inspired by the dashboard of a vintage sports car – but whatever its design roots are, it is a distinctly new design when compared to the Gerald Genta-designed case of previous IWC Ingenieurs. Angular lines, integrated lugs, and crown protectors are gone. No bezel screws, rubber, plastic, or anything of the sort.
Aesthetic reboot aside, there’s a new movement here too, with the in-house IWC Replica caliber. This is an automatic chronograph movement that has date, stopwatch, and small hacking seconds. The movement is made up of 200 parts and measures 30mm wide by 7.9mm high. It operates at a frequency of 28,800vph and has a 46-hour power reserve.
The black dial with rose gold and red gold has pretty classic, old-school good looks, and I think 42mm Cheap IWC Replica is the ideal case size, not something like 46mm. Personally, I don’t love the red used on the subdials – I understand the racing and automotive inspiration, but it looks a little confused to me.
On a brown calfskin strap, the IWC Fake Watches 42mm case is done in stainless steel with a slate-colored dial. The hands and appliqués are in rhodium and, as I mentioned before, the red on the sub dials looks pretty good in these press photos.
IWC produces the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph in a 43mm-wide steel case that is given an excellent finishing that blends sportiness with just a hint of high-society luster thanks to some nice angled beveling. The case is also 15mm thick and water resistant to 60 meters. No exhibition caseback window, but Best IWC Replica Watches does use a soft iron core around the movement which adds a nice level of anti-magnetic resistance to the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 3777.
One of the reasons that the 3777 Pilot’s US IWC Replica Watches Chronograph models work so well is the great mixture of case size, style, and wonderful execution of this style of pilot watch dial. IWC arguably offers a best-of-breed set of dial materials and textures resulting in one of the best-looking faces around if you are seeking this style of watch. Go ahead and compare it with the competition, as, in my opinion, Top Swiss IWC Replica really does “own” this niche of pilot watch styles. A big part of that is how well they do the hands.
On the wrist, the IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 3777 is a simple classic that looks nice as a purely casual timepiece or with slightly more formal attire. It is hard to make a pilot’s IWC Replica Watches this versatile, but this particular look does it well. If you are a bit more daring, then the blue-dialed IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Le Petit Prince might be up your alley.
IWC includes an admittedly nice black or brown calfskin Santoni strap with the IW377709 or IW377714 watch, respectively, that comes on a simple buckle. While the IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch Chronograph 3777 always looks good on these straps, I would urge people interested in the black-dialed IW377710 to consider the available five-link steel metal bracelet.
Comparatively speaking, the IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 3777 models are affordable in terms of the larger IWC timepiece line-up, but they are still at the limits what you should be asked to pay for a timepiece with these specs. With that said, a lot of people have a very high level of wearing enjoyment with these timepieces, and even with just minor updates, the Replica IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph collection has never been a stronger choice.
Sometimes you just really want a big watch… and, apparently, other times you want a huge one. Have no doubt that this 55mm-wide IWC Big Pilot’s Heritage Top Swiss Replica Watch 55 timepiece is barely wearable in most instances.
If anything, the biggest let down in a timepiece such as this that IWC didn’t make better use of the space inside. With all that case real estate, they could have easily included some movement with a power reserve of at least week or more. I mean, the standard IWC Replica Watch is both an automatic and has a power reserve of about a week. Instead, IWC preferred to go an alternative route and get a bit more vintage chic with the mechanism inside of this reference 5104 timepiece.
For the movement, IWC Replica chose their in-house-made caliber 98300 which operates at 2.5Hz and has a power reserve of just 46 hours, being manually wound. The idea here is likely that IWC wanted to convey the most pure sense of “old-time winding” since on most accounts the caliber 98300 is based on rather old horological architecture.
IWC once again got it right when it comes to a pilot-style watch dial in terms of finishing and colors. The Replica IWC blued hands are a nice touch and off-white luminant along with refined dial design make for a very classy look. At 10mm smaller, it would make for a great wear.
Speaking of straps, attached to the Cheap IWC Replica Big Pilot’s Heritage Watch 55 is a thick brown calfskin strap that is designed like a cross between a pilot and NATO strap. That means the strap itself is very long, which is sort of good because I think “back-in-the-day” timepieces such as this were often worn on the thigh.
So what’s all the fuss with the new Top Gun Miramar iteration? First and foremost, is how the case has been mercifully reduced to a more practical 44mm down from 46mm, which better suits the watch for a wider range of wrist sizes and casual-wear contexts. The US IWC Replica Watches ceramic case composition, coupled with the new dimensions yields a deceptively lightweight wrist presence that wears much more comfortably than any of its stainless steel cousins in the Pilot’s family.
Another appreciated change is how the critically panned altimeter-style date window has been edited down to a single date aperture, which balances out the dial with greater efficiency. Granted, a next-level move on IWC’s part would have been matching the date wheel to the gray dial, or at least using red instead of white-colored numerals. If Sinn can do it, Best IWC Replica Watches in-house movement manufacture certainly could, but we’ll just have to be happy with the standard, albeit vastly improved date window as it stands.
Four years since the introduction of the inaugural version, the IWC Pilot’s Watch Top Gun Miramar keeps the retro pilot IWC Replica Watches aesthetic going albeit with some improvements and refinements. It’s not terribly exciting and doesn’t do much in the way of bringing something new to the genre. Whether or not it’s worth the five figure price tag is really up to the buyer, but if you’re into this aesthetic but can’t afford or are ambivalent to the IWC brand perception, there are alternatives.
With an unabashed, all-matte-everything tool watch aesthetic, the IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch Chronograph Top Gun Miramar is hardly the utilitarian statement it appears to be. It’s a tough pill to swallow for those who prefer their watches employ more dynamic visual cues to affirm their value. Even the olive-drab green calfskin strap, though exceptionally well-made, seems to all but disappear on the wrist, particularly when camouflaged against an earth-toned shirt or jacket.
