The AAA IWC Replica Pilot’s Watch Chronograph

Produced from 1994 to 2005, Der Fliegerchronograph ref. 3706 was IWC’s first mechanical pilot’s chronograph, and one of the bestsellers during a period the IWC was resolutely Swiss-German. Together with the Mark XII Replica Watches and Der Doppelchronograph, it marked the return of IWC pilot’s watches in the post-quartz era. All of them relied on the same design language, inspired by the Mark 11 made for the Royal Air Force in the 1950s.

With the Mark XII just having been remade, now it’s the turn of the IWC Replica Watches Pilot’s Chronograph China, as an online-only reissue of the original. The most significant difference is size, it’s now 43mm compared to 39mm before.

The design of the dial is virtually identical, right down to the day-date display. Unlike the current line-up of AAA IWCPilot’s watches For Sale, the reissue has baton hands, a slim typeface as well as a quarter-seconds track for measuring shorter periods of time – just like the original ref. 3706. In fact, it almost looks like how a 20-year old ref. 3706 would look today, with faux-patina lume on the indices and hands that mimic the look of aged tritium.

And the remake is powered by the same movement, the cal. 79320, which is still based on the reliable Valjoux 7750. But because the case has been enlarged while the movement diameter stays the same.

As with all High Quality Replica watches past and present, the movement is protected by a soft iron, antimagnetic inner cage.

The AAA IWC Portugieser Hand-Wound Eight-Days Replica Watches

The Portugieser collection has always been about pure function and simple design. AAA IWC Replica Watches that really benefits from a closer look, since you could easily miss the things that make it most worthwhile at first glance.

The first thing you notice when you see this watch in the metal is that it’s big. When you pick it up, that impression only intensifies as you turn the 43.2mm x 12.3mm IWC Fake Watches case over in your hands. However, while I’m usually the first person to give watch makers a hard time about oversized dimensions, I think IWC made the right call here.

The Portugieser has always been a watch with an oversized case. Just look back at the history outlined above – the original watch was a pocketwatch movement put into a case with lugs and a strap for the wrist. The IWC Replica Watches weren’t large for stylistic reasons, but rather out of pure necessity. The caliber 74, which powered the ref. 325 generation Portugieser watches, is 37.8mm across. That’s the movement I’m talking about, not the cased watch.

Despite the size, the Hand-Wound’s case is extremely elegantly proportioned. It resembles neither a hockey puck nor a dinner plate, and the lugs smoothly transition from the caseband. The brushed finishes are extremely clean and the polishing on top of the lugs, and the slim bezel, bring some brightness to the mix.

The blued steel hands are the perfect choice for this watch too. Previous versions of the Hand-Wound have featured metallic hands matching the case metal, and they’ve always looked a little flashy and cheap to me. The Luxury Fake IWC  Watch blue is intense and brings another dimension to the dial. Without these particular hands, I don’t think this watch works as a whole, but with them it really sings.

As with the original Portugieser watches, this watch is properly scaled to the movement inside. The caliber 59215 is, again, a 37.8mm movement, so it fills the caseback of the Hand-Wound, showing no spacer or dead zone when viewed through the massive sapphire window on the rear of the Cheap IWC Replica. As far as the architecture goes, the movement isn’t really related to the original pocketwatch calibers used in the first Portugieser, but the identical dimensions are a happy accident anyway.

The caliber 59215 is one of IWC’s modern generation in-house movements, meaning it has a lot of technology incorporated that’s mean to make your watch perform better over time. These movements aren’t about fancy hand-finishing, though they’re certainly decorated nicely, with deep stripes on the Swiss IWC Fake Watches plates and bridges, and polishing and bevels on the wheels. Instead, the emphasis is on the full bridge structure the hacking seconds, and the stopworks mechanism that prevents the watch from continuing to run once the torque in the single barrel drops below the level necessary for accurate timekeeping. The Hand-Wound either runs accurately or not at all.

With the proper strap in place, I was all set to strap the Hand-Wound on for the week. This probably comes as no surprise at this point, but my first thought when fastening the strap was “Damn, this is a big watch.” Luckily though, that ended up being far from the watch’s most lasting impression.

On the wrist, the Portugieser looks stunning. The white dial has tons of negative space, an effect made more pronounced by the thin bezel and sapphire box crystal, and there’s something about it that just draws the eye in. I found Cheap Replica Watches myself wrist-gazing quite a bit with this one, especially over the first two or three days.

Legibility is outstanding, with the hands standing out against the dial and the combination of numerals and chapter ring allowing for precise reading. Though there is no lume on the dial, I found I could still read the Excellent Copy Watch in all but the darkest settings, since in most cases the white lacquer dial could be angled to reflect enough available light to give me a good sense of the time anyway.
