The IWC Replica Pilot’s Watch Chronograph

For instrument watch enthusiasts, the Pilot’s Replica Watch Double Chronograph and Pilot’s Chronograph/Fliegerchronograph were a very big deal indeed, and they represented, along with the Mark XII, a kind of high water mark for functionally driven watch design – not just from IWC, but for the 1990s in general.

The watch looked very promising and indeed, in the metal, it’s an impressive IWC Replica watch, as well as being, for those of us who remember the debut of the originals in the ’90s, a pretty powerful reminder of a time when so many milestones in watchmaking were yet to come and when the hobby was still very small scale.

In many respects, it certainly feels very much like the original as well. There’s the same take-it-or-leave-it chunky steel case, a virtually identical dial, the same date display as in the original, and the same distribution of lume. The Swiss IWC Fake Watches basic design remains as strong as ever – time and elapsed time information are delivered with all the unambiguous bluntness and lack of ceremony of a process server handing you a court summons, which for an instrument watch is exactly as it should be.

In a lot of respects the IWC Fake Watches wearing experience for the new model’s more similar to the original than different – the thickness of each is close enough to somewhat cancel out the difference in diameter. The lume may look aged but of course it works just fine and in the dark, as you’d expect, the dial glows like Marie Curie’s teeth.

As happy as I was to see this design return, there is an unexpected element of sadness to seeing it and having it on the wrist, and that’s because it is a powerful exercise in nostalgia. The original version appeared at a time when not just the world of watches, but the world in general, was a very different place; being part of a watch enthusiast community meant being part of something much smaller and altogether more intimate, and IWC Replica Watches brands in general still made changes in products in careful, incremental ways, rather than attempting to produce significantly new designs in relatively short periods of time. There was, overall, a sense of durability of design, and stability in identity, that seems to have been a bit lost nowadays.

I actually don’t have a very clear sense of what it would be like to have a straight re-issue of the original back. And being a little too backwards-looking has, historically, been occasionally problematic and sometimes nearly fatal for the European watch industry. Maybe it’s better to see this IWC Knockoff Watches for what it is: a sign of the times that has appeared at a moment when the mechanical watch is once again straddling the divide between what it once was and can never be again, and what it’s going to become.

IWC Flieger Chronograph Replica – Hands On With The Classic Pilot Chrono With A Twist

Over the last few months, I had the opportunity to try and wear an IWC Flieger Chronograph Replica that has been treated with the ever so popular Diamond Like Carbon finish. Besides the DLC finish, they also changed the color of the small seconds hand from red into blue and a matching black strap with blue stitches. Although the responses on this particular leather strap from fellow collectors who’ve seen this watch were quite variable, I really loved it.

The sapphire crystal of the IWC has this blue glare on these pictures, but that’s because of the Anti-Reflective coating that Cheap IWC Replica uses for their crystals. With regards to the case of this watch, as you can see above, the DLC finish is not too dark, just enough to make the watch a bit more hard core tool watch than it already was. The blued small second hand doesn’t add anything much, but I think I prefer it over the standard red one.

The size of 42mm sounds actually bigger than it is. I am not familiar with wearing their previous 39mm model, but this one suits me perfectly even though I am used to wearing watches smaller then this. The finish of the watch case is superb and reminds me how fond I was about my IWC Ingenieur ref.3227-1 a few years ago. IWC really does a magnificent job regarding the finish of their watch cases.

This is what I love about this Flieger, a clean and closed stainless steel case back. Although IWC really puts some effort in finishing their movements, I am not very interested in seeing the movement in a watch like this. It would be something different when discussing their 7-days Portguese automatic, but this movement is a work horse. IWC Replica Watches refers to it as their 79320-calibre, based on the famous ETA/Valjoux 7750 movement. When wearing this watch, you will immediately recognize it as a ‘7750’ based watch because of the wobble.

The folding clasp has also been finished with the DLC-procedure as you can see. It is one of the nicest and most comfortable folding clasps on a leather strap I’ve experienced so far. The length of the clasp is just fine for me, shorter clasps tend to stick into the backside of my wrist. The satin brushed finish and polished edges of the clasp perfectly match the IWC Replica case.

And here is the wrist shot of the Charming Fake IWC Pilot’s Chronograph Watches. As I wrote earlier, it is one of the classic chronographs and certainly one of the most legible out there. That, combined with the DLC finish makes this particular watch a very pure and functional tool watch.
