Classic Pilot’s Watches Collection
A staple for the brand, which has produced such a model since the mid-1990s. For long an oversized watch with a 43mm case and Valjoux-based movement, it was revamped in 2021 with the introduction of a smaller case and a manufacture movement.
Following the classic steel editions and a Ceratanium model, the brand once again demonstrates its focus on materials with this new IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch Chronograph 41 Bronze IW388109, combining warm colours for the case and dial.
For many years, the IWC Pilot’s Chronograph has been a large watch with a standard movement. The 2016 version has a diameter of 43 mm and is powered by calibre 7750. Most Impressive IWC Replica began researching the appeal of this sub-series back in 2018, launching Spitfire models in stainless steel or bronze.
Part of these retro-inspired models is a reduced 41mm case and a so-called manufacturing movement with a column wheel. In 2021, the brand presents a limited edition that pays homage to the 3705 and later the classic stainless steel collection, again with reduced scale and movement.
All these features, which improved the appeal of this collection quite dramatically, are now well implemented. And so it’s time for IWC Replica Watches USA to play with colours and innovative and original materials, an essential part of the brand’s DNA as we’ve seen in recent coloured ceramic models.
The new IWC Pilot’s AAA Replica Watches Chronograph 41 Bronze IW388109 is, as you’d expect, the same as the stainless steel version, with a well-proportioned 41mm case with all the design elements of the collection, but now made of bronze.
To be precise, the alloys used by IWC rely on aluminum and iron in addition to copper. This special composition makes the alloy about 50% harder than standard bronze. IWC also emphasizes the biocompatibility of materials. Over time, this alloy tends to develop a slight sheen, giving the watch its unique personality.
The case of this Bronze Chronograph 41 Replica vs Real is completely sandblasted, giving it a very interesting look on this new non-chrome model. A matte gold that is rich and warm, but without the sheen and glamour of gold. It’s unique and I love it.
Of course, the patina will develop and give the case a darker, greener color. The rest of the specs are classic, with a bronze crown and pushers on both sides and a sapphire crystal. The caseback, which is in direct contact with the skin, is made of titanium, and the watch has a comfortable 100m water resistance.
On The Wrist
Thanks to the soft textile strap that comes with the watch, the Pilot Chronograph 41 Famous Replica Watch is comfortable without being too big. Like most automatic chronographs, it has a certain presence but no longer feels oversized.
Note that, like many watches recently released by IWC, this watch is equipped with the practical EasX-CHANGE system. It allows the wearer to change the strap at the touch of a button without any additional tools. If you want to change the personality of the watch, the brand also offers calfskin and rubber straps in a variety of colors.
Dark Blue Dial
The IWC Replica dark blue dial contrasts with the bronze; the matte blue texture is paired with gold-plated hands, and all elements – tracks, markers, markers, and even the day/date disc – are beige/tritium. All hands and markers at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock are filled with luminous material. The only color on this watch is the red-coated subsecond hand.
This automatic, integrated chronograph is equipped with a column wheel, resulting in a pleasant feel for the pushers. The power reserve, at 46 hours, is decent. The IWC Substantial Fake Watch movement is decorated in a pleasant way, with an openworked rotor, circular stripes on the automatic bridge and perlage on the mainplate.
