The new Replica IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Blue Angels”.This new Chronograph Edition Blue Angels feels very traditional, colour scheme apart. However, it has several noticeable features that make it rather unique… but also very much in line with the brand’s current direction of the Pilot’s collection.
The case is treated in black, with a sandblasted finish – thus avoiding reflections, something that could be quite disturbing when flying Mach 1 and doing a barrel roll… Just saying! Crown and pushers are also executed in the classic IWC Substantial Replica Watches way, meaning in contrasting steel.
The case is robust,with a 44.5mm diameter and 15.7mm height.It is complemented by a textured blue calfskin strap and secured by a sandblasted steel folding buckle. The back of the strap is executed in bright yellow leather.
The Fake IWC dial is familiar and made to be perfectly legible: large propeller-shaped hands in black with white lume, bold Arabic numerals for the minute markers and a triangle at 12 o’clock.
This modern engine is an integrated automatic chronograph with column-wheel and vertical clutch. It also features one of pilot’s Replica Watches favourite functions, the flyback or retour en vol, which allows to stop/start/reset the chronograph by one click on the pusher at 4 o’clock – used to do several calculations in a row.
