Best IWC Replica Big Pilot’s Heritage Watch

The Big Pilot series is based on the B-Uhr aviation replica watch developed for the German Air Force German Air Force during the Second World War. Initially developed by many Swiss and German manufacturers, these iwc watches have had a major impact on military and aerospace timepieces – encouraging larger enclosure sizes, accentuating readability and using soft iron inner casings to resist these magnetic fields.

IWC’s Pilot copy watches are available in 48mm and 55mm titanium models, with the exception of size, the aesthetic difference between the two is small. This watch features a B-Uhr style case, long lugs and a large diamond crown, a matte black dial, faux copper green numerals and decorations.

These two watches are similar to many other IWC Big Pilots Fake Watches over the past few years and pay tribute to their predecessors’ original design specifications. In particular, this 55mm watch has a historically accurate case size, lacks a date window, a simple dial configuration and a completely sturdy bottom cover that has successfully become a collector’s work and inspired by the past.

Although the 48mm change did not receive such direct respect, it still retains many “traditional” design elements. Like the 55mm version and the vintage version, Limited Edition IWC Copy Watch it uses a similar case shape, dial configuration and crown, but with its modern movement, power reserve and date indicator, it blends into the modern world.

IWC Big Pilot’s Copy Watch Perpetual Calendar

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 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.

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.

The IWC Replica Watch black ceramic case measures 44.5mm with a height of 15.6mm and like the perpetual calendar has a racy carbon fibre dial. The elapsed hours and minutes are displayed in white on the sub-dial at 12 o’clock while the small seconds appear in a sub-dial at 6 o’clock, this time with Petronas emerald green markings.

IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch Double Chronograph TOP GUN

Besides being one hell of a good looking pilot’s copy watch with the coolest complication/movement you’ll probably find at IWC, this new Double Chronograph TOP GUN also marks the comeback of two iconic features of the brand.

This 39mm steel replica 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 watches.

While the split-seconds chronograph function is undoubtedly one of the finest complications in watchmaking, it is complex to develop and fragile on a daily basis. However, these early IWC Flieger fake watches were meant to be used and abused. They were tool watches meant to serve as instruments, not to spend half of their lives at a service centre.

As a whole, this new IWC Pilot’s Copy Watch Double Chronograph TOP GUN Ceratanium isn’t exactly new; it is more of an evolution of existing models rather than an unprecedented creation.
