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.
