Swiss watchmakers IWC Mark XVIII Heritage Replica Watches AAA+ Grade are well-known among collectors for the watches they’ve produced for various militaries such as Britain’s Royal Air Force. The DNA of these historic military designs still pervades IWC’s collection, most prominently in the Big Pilot’s series and the Pilot’s Mark XVIII, both of which are military-styled, aviation-oriented pieces. Now, IWC have released a set of special editions of these models, the Mark XVIII and Big Pilot’s, all available in new materials and equipped with different calibers of varying specification.
Starting with the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Heritage swiss made grade 1, the new piece is fairly similar to previous Big Pilot’s Watches with the exception of case material, which is now either bronze or titanium, and the inclusion of the very impressive IWC 52110 in-house manufacture caliber. IWC’s automatic winding 52110 features a staggering 168 hour power reserve, aaa replica watches review finishing, and 31 jewels, all ticking along at 28,800 vibrations per hour inside of a soft iron inner case to resist magnetic fields found in aviation environments. The standard Big Pilot’s 51111 caliber features more jewels at 42 but beats at a significantly slower 21,600 vibrations per hour. Otherwise, the 46.2mm case, signature crown, and vintage inspired leather strap remain similar in style to previous Big Pilot’s.
If anything, these new additions to the IWC Heritage Replica Watches Made In China collection help to round out a previously daunting collection in terms of physical size. The Heritage Big Pilot’s 48 and 55, released last year, are probably unwearable for almost everyone other than professional body builders and pilots who intend to wear the watch outside a flight jacket.
The new Big Pilot’s Watch Annual Calendar Edition “Antoine De Saint Exupéry” is based closely on last year’s Big Pilot’s Watch Annual Calendar Edition “Le Petit Prince” but with a few changes. The IWC Big Pilot’s Replica Watches comes in a hefty 46.2mm 18k red gold case and retains the large conical screw-in crown that has become a signature of IWC’s Big Pilot’s watches. Water resistance is a handy 60m, which means it should be good enough for the occasional swim.
The big change is on the dial. While watches in IWC’s “Le Petit Prince” collection have a deep and rich blue dial, the “Antoine De Saint Exupéry” watches distinguish themselves by having a rich tobacco brown dial, as we saw in the IWC Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph hands-on here. Judging from the Replica Watches China Free Shipping press photos, the dial seems to match the red gold case nicely. Another notable feature of the dial is the stylized “A” under the annual calendar readouts that represents the author’s name.
At 12 o’clock, you have three apertures that display the month, date, and day. Also, at 3 and 9 o’clock, you have the power reserve indicator and subsidiary seconds respectively. The thick hands and beefy Arabic numeral hour indices feature red gold accents and look to have been generously applied with luminescent material so legibility, whether in the day or night, shouldn’t be an issue. The Chinese Replica Watches Quality also comes with a matching brown calfskin strap with white stitching made by leather specialists Santoni.
Powering the Big Pilot’s Watch Annual Calendar Edition “Antoine De Saint Exupéry” is the IWC Caliber 52850, which is visible through a sapphire display caseback. It beats at a standard 4Hz and features a 7-day long power reserve thanks to two mainspring barrels. It also features the latest version of IWC Replica Watches Pellaton winding system, which has recently been upgraded with ceramic components to provide years of wear-free operation. It has also been handsomely decorated with C?tes de Genève and blued screws.
Obviously, the Fake IWC Big Pilot’s Watch online Annual Calendar Edition “Antoine De Saint Exupéry” will appeal most to fans of The Little Prince and admirers of the author. However, there’s a lot to like about the watch even if you are not familiar with Saint Exupéry and his works. The tobacco brown dial and the red gold case look like a great match and I especially like the watch’s winding rotor that is shaped like a Lightning P-38 plane.
