Besides being one hell of a good looking pilot’s watch with the coolest complication/movement you’ll probably find at IWC, this new Double Chronograph TOP GUN Replica Watches also marks the comeback of two iconic features of the brand.
This 39mm steel fake watch had it all: the no-nonsense design, the robustness, the simplicity of the display to enhance legibility and the complex chronograph movement developed in-house with a strong focus on reliability. In short, an icon that would be the mother of all the following IWC pilot’s copy watches.
As a whole, this new IWC Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph TOP GUN Ceratanium isn’t exactly new; it is more of an evolution of existing models rather than an unprecedented creation.
Other compelling features are its skin-friendliness, high corrosion-resistance and striking matte black colour. One of the main advantages is that theFake Watches colour isn’t the result of a coating but is internally black, meaning that there is no risk of seeing some metal if it gets scratched.
With a height of 12.6mm, the case is also pleasantly thin for an automatic chronograph, and while not especially compact on paper – 47mm lug-to-lug – the shape of the case is comfortable and well-balanced, even on smaller wrists.
The IWC Portugieser Chronograph 3714 is water-resistant to 30 metres only. Considering the nautical inspiration, Fake IWC should improve the water-resistance to 100 metres – for more versatility.
The main hands – hours and minutes – are leaf-shaped and offer a great contrast to the silvery-white dial. The Replica Watchesexecution is, once again, precise and refined. The other hands are more simple in design, especially the extremely thin central chronograph hand. Yet, reading elapsed times remains easy.
Humans have a remarkable capacity to harness those materials found in the natural world and make things of immense beauty. Raw materials become a vehicle for human expression. Such an example is ceramic: a material which can be both fragile when used to make delicate porcelain, and sturdy when found in the bricks which form the architectural landscape of our cities.
The Replica Watchesconsiderable 44mm diameter holds inside a robust automatic 79420 Calibre movement which spins at a frequency of 4hz and offers a reliable power reserve of 44 hours.
The dial features a typical Fake IWC day-date display, chronograph functions with hours, minutes and seconds, and an all important split-seconds hand – the feature which gives the watch its ‘Double Chronograph’ name.
The close family that is their Pilot’s Copy Watch Collection includes the Spitfire, Le Petit Prince, Classic and Top Gun models. Whilst the veritable pilot’s watch is more likely to be found sitting on the wrist of an aspirational aviator rather than a professional pilot, the quality, precision and sophistication of these timepieces is higher above the clouds than it has ever been before.
