This is a massive replica watch coming in at 46.5mm with a height of 15.6mm, but that has always been a part of its appeal. Compared to this same model in bronze, the dark colour scheme gives the watch a more contemporary, stealth mood.
The Replica Watches case is crafted in matte black zirconium oxide and houses the sophisticated in-house perpetual calendar module that automatically detects the different number of days in a month and won’t need adjusting until 2100.
The titanium caseback has a sapphire window revealing the calibre 52615, part of the new generation of movements introduced in 2015 by IWC Replica. An update of the 7-day automatic movement, this new calibre still retains the same amount of energy but is now delivered by a twin-barrel architecture.
IWC Replica Watch It is equipped with several ceramic wheels, which are more wear-resistant than traditional alloys: the winding pawls and the automatic wheel are made of black ceramic while the skeletonised rotor features a golden inlay with two chequered flags of F1 races.
Few fake watches can claim to be real icons. The IWC Big Pilot’s Watch is definitely one of them. The one that everybody knows is the classic black dial version with white indices. But there are more editions offered by the brand – including my favourite, the “Le Petit Prince” ref. IW500916.
IWC Ref. IW5009 Replica – which updated the dial and returned to the original design – with the 9 o’clock numeral back in place and the black triangle below the 12 o’clock index. Also, the movement was entirely changed, and if it still has a 7-day power reserve, it features a brand-new architecture inside.
Dimensions, specifications and mechanics are the same in both versions of the Replica Watches.These two were, however, rather apart in the collection, and did not feature the automatic 7-day power reserve movement and the central seconds/power reserve indicator display. The IW501005 is more in line with what the classical Big Pilot’s Watch is supposed to be.
This Big Pilot’s Copy Watch Heritage Bronzerelies on the same 46.2mm x 15.4mm case as the standard steel version. The shape is also the same. What changes is the material used: a bronze alloy with its defining dark-gold colour – when new – or greenish patina – after being worn intensively.
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.
