For the movement, IWC Big Pilot’s Replica Watch chose their in-house-made caliber 98300 which operates at 2.5Hz and has a power reserve of just 46 hours, being manually wound.What it lacks in things like performance, complexity, and convenience, it makes up for in feeling like you are winding up an old timepiece.
IWC Replica China once again got it right when it comes to a pilot-style watch dial in terms of finishing and colors. The 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 IWC Big Pilot’s Heritage Fake 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.
