Time Flies:Historic IWC Pilot’s Replica Watches

IWC’s First “Special Watch for Pilots”

IWC started focusing on the production of technically advanced Best IWC Replica Watches built specifically for aviation at a very early stage, becoming a true pioneer in this field. Progress made in aviation and navigation had created a growing need for watches that offered maximum reliability under the toughest conditions.

IWC’s First Big Pilot’s Watch

The first IWC Big Pilot’s Replica Watch was supplied to the Luftwaffe in 1940 in an edition of 1,000 pieces. The “big device,” constructed according to the criteria for an observer’s watch, is the largest wristwatch ever made by IWC, with a case diameter of 55 mm, a height of 16.5 mm, and a weight of 183 grams.

IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Ceramic

Forty-eight years after the legendary Mark 11 was launched, IWC built on its Pilot’s Watch tradition with the launch of the IWC Replica Watches Chronograph. In 1994, IWC launched another Pilot’s Watch Chronograph, intended for modern aviation and equipped with a case made from high-tech zirconium oxide ceramic — a material as hard as sapphire and virtually indestructible. Its movement is caliber 7922.

IWC Pilot’s Watch UTC

In 1998, IWC introduced the Pilot’s IWC Replica UTC as a useful tool for frequent travelers in an increasingly globalized world. This timepiece, outfitted with Caliber A30710, was coordinated with Universal Time; the wearer could not only read different times and dates around the world, but could also change both the time and date simply using the crown.

IWC introduced its 5000 family of calibers in 2001, originally for use in a limited series of IWC Portugieser watches.

With a case diameter of 46.2 mm and a height of 15.8 mm, it remains one of the biggest wristwatches IWC Swiss Replica Watch has ever made.
