This new Big Pilot’s US Replica Watch,takes most of the attributes of the classic Big Pilot and adds a certain dose of cool to the package… but also a great sense of practicality.This new Edition Right-Hander is definitely a practical option, when worn on the left wrist. It will also please lefties, who will appreciate having a watch to wear on their right wrist.
Basically, the case is identical, with its oversized 46.2mm diameter and 15.6mm height.So no surprises here. The Best IWC case of this edition is made of steel, mostly brushed with several polished accents. It is worn on a black pilot’s strap.
Instead of a central seconds hand on the classic Big Pilot’s Watch, this Edition Right-Hander IW501012 features a small seconds counter. Since the movement has been rotated 180 degrees to have the crown at 9 o’clock, the power reserve indicator is also on the opposite side.
Inside is the in-house calibre IWC 52010, a large automatic movement with Pellaton winding system and a very long power reserve of 7 days or 168 hours – more than sufficient. The movement is hidden behind a plain caseback, with a soft-iron inner case for protection against magnetic fields.
