IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch Timezoner Chronograph

After IWC’s purchase of Vogard’s patent on their TimeZoner watch in late 2014, we are now seeing their world time watch with the IWC Pilot’s Watch Timezoner chronograph. A rotating bezel allows the wearer to easily change timezones, and we assume the feature will find a lot more mainstream success with IWC’s marketing machine behind it. It’s also important to note that this watch also borrows the Cheap IWC Replica rotating bezel. What this means is that there’s a quasi-internal bezel that is controlled by moving the outer bezel. Functionally, this translates to the inner bezel revolving the opposite direction as the outer bezel. What this results in is the ability to show a new timezone and time of day with a turn of the bezel.

1868
The watch isn’t as small as some of the other Pilot’s Watches of this year at 45mm wide and 16.5mm high on the wrist. Available in stainless steel, the watch is water resistant to 60 meters. Aesthetically, I love the black and white dial with red splash on the second time zone hand. Legibility looks great and it actually seems like the wearer would be able to take advantage of the watch’s functions with relative ease. Another feature of this watch is the ability to read the hours and minutes recorded by the chronograph on the totalizer at 12 o’clock, with stop times up to 60 seconds shown by the central chronograph hand. A flyback function allows the wearer to set the chronograph back to zero and start a new timing sequence immediately. A cool little feature IWC Replica Watches has patented is a small “S” on the rotating bezel that indicates if a city recognizes summertime (daylight saving). This deals with the annoying fact of cities jumping ahead or going back a few hours, which would certainly provide a headache for someone wearing a world timer.

1869
Taking a look at the back of the case, there’s a simple stainless steel case back with a depiction of a Junkers Ju 52 plane. Back in the 1930s this was the most common civilian aircraft, so it’s easy to see why IWC Replica Watches UK chose it for their TimeZoner.

1870
The IWC Timezoner Chronograph features the new automatic 89760 calibre movement, which operates at 4 Hz and has a power reserve of 68 hours. In line with most of the new Luxury Fake Watches collection, the Timezoner will come on a calfskin strap.

IWC Pilot’s Replica Watches Mark XVIII

Directly inspired by the 1948 Mark 11 watch, the new entry-level IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII for SIHH 2016 is a watch that the brand says is “reduced to essentials.” A simple three hand watch designed for maximum legibility, the piece is a welcome addition to the IWC Pilot’s Replica Watches Mark XVIII line. It’s simple, but a handsome base IWC designed for maximum legibility, and is my idea of simplicity at its best.IWC is making 2016 the year of its Pilot Watch update, and along with releasing large watches like the IWC Big Pilot’s Heritage Watch 48 & 55 (more on those two here) available in 48mm and an almost comically large 55mm, but there does seem to be an overall pattern of shrinking the line down a bit. Interestingly, they are releasing the IWC Mark XVIII just one millimeter narrower than the current Mark XVII. At 40mm wide, Cheap IWC Replica has also made a decision that applies to a few of their Pilot watches this year, the removal of the triple date display. I think it’s a move that will prove pretty popular, as a triple date window just really is unnecessary in the eyes of so many buyers.

All these aesthetic decisions have to do with IWC’s desire to go back to a more traditional look for the Pilot’s watch line. This involves design cues like bringing back the “9” that was taken out of the Pilot line in 2002. The “12” is replaced with a slightly pareidoliaic (fancy word for seeing human faces in objects) triangle with dot on either side. The entry-level IWC Replica Watches is going to be available on either the calfskin strap or the stainless steel bracelet and comes in either a black or silver-plated dial. Also, there is 60 meters of water resistance for this watch.

1863
On the case back, you’ll see the Junkers Ju 52 airplane, which was the most common aircraft used for civilian travel in the 1930s. The Replica Watches UK has the automatic 30110 calibre movement, which operates at 4 Hz and has 42 hours of power reserve. This is the same as the outgoing Mark XVII and is a solid workhorse movement. As an entry-level watch, I think the IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII is going to have a lot of appeal for buyers appreciating the cleaner look.

IWC Big Pilot’s Watch & IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph

This year marks the 80th anniversary of the IWC Pilot’s Watch as well as the line’s revamping for SIHH 2016, and the brand seems intent on tapping into its quite illustrious history. The new IWC Big Pilot’s Replica Watch is not getting any major redesign, but there are several aesthetic changes that overall work well and succeed in tapping into said history. You’ve also got the new IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph, which has some design changes of its own being made to “freshen” up the look by, somewhat ironically, looking to the past for visual cues.

1856
The new IWC Big Pilot’s Watch sees the return of the triangular index back below the chapter ring at 12 o’clock. A simple move by the brand, but I personally think that this looks a lot cleaner than having the triangle wedged up top. The “9” also returns, which I like rather than a unnumbered hour marker. If you look carefully, you’ll notice the numerals are bolder than the old model and the five minute markers are narrower. What hasn’t changed is the power reserve dial and the date window at 6 o’clock.As with the new Cheap IWC Replica, there is a Santoni calfskin strap on this watch, this one in black. In terms of the movement, it is unchanged and the IWC Big Pilot Watch still uses the automatic 51111 Calibre, operating at 3 Hz and providing 7 days power reserve. Also unchanged, unlike many new Pilot Watches, are the case dimensions which are still 46mm wide and 16mm high. The watch is water resistant to 60 meters.

1857
As for the IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph, the most obvious change is one that’s affected much of the IWC Replica Watches line – the removal of the triple date window. The seemingly superfluous design element is now replaced with a more-classic looking single day and date window. Also gone are the small 5-minute indicators on the outer chapter ring which always looked a bit awkward and cluttered.The movement and case are unchanged, with the Replica Watches UK automatic 79320 Calibre. It operates at 4Hz and will provide 44 hours of power reserve. The stainless steel case is still 43mm wide and 15mm high, providing 60 meters of water resistance.

1859

Redesigned IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Special Edition Watches

These three specific models are limited editions commemorating the 74th Goodwood Member’s Meeting, which is a weekend-long racing event. The IWC Ingeniuer Chronograph Edition “74th Member’s Meeting at Goodwood” is limited to 74 pieces and features a rose gold case, the IWC Ingeniuer Chronograph Edition “Rudolf Caracciola” is in a stainless steel case, and the IWC Ingeniuer Chronograph Edition “W 125” is a titanium version. These last two will each have a 750-watch run.

1730
The new 42mm-wide and 15mm-high case features two totalizers, small seconds dial, and tachymeter on the outer edge. IWC says this design is inspired by the dashboard of a vintage sports car – but whatever its design roots are, it is a distinctly new design when compared to the Gerald Genta-designed case of previous Cheap IWC Replica. Angular lines, integrated lugs, and crown protectors are gone. No bezel screws, rubber, plastic, or anything of the sort.

1731
Aesthetic reboot aside, there’s a new movement here too, with the in-house IWC 69370 caliber. This is an automatic chronograph movement that has date, stopwatch, and small hacking seconds. The movement is made up of 200 parts and measures 30mm wide by 7.9mm high. It operates at a frequency of 28,800vph and has a 46-hour power reserve.The rose gold IWC Replica Watches  Ingenieur Chronograph “74th Member’s Meeting at Goodwood” which is limited to 74 pieces also has red gold hands and appliqués, and comes on a brown calfskin strap. The black dial with rose gold and red gold has pretty classic, old-school good looks, and I think 42mm is the ideal case size, not something like 46mm.

1732
Seen above, the IWC Ingeniuer Chronograph Edition “Rudolf Caracciola” is dedicated to the eponymous racing driver who won 3 European Drivers’ Championships through the 1930s. On a brown calfskin strap, the 42mm case is done in stainless steel with a slate-colored dial. The hands and appliqués are in rhodium and, as I mentioned before, the red on the sub dials looks pretty good in these press photos.
The IWC Replica Watches is inspired by the Mercedes-Benz W 125 Silver Arrow from the late 1930s. The titanium case cradles a dial with black hands and appliqués, which are naturally complemented by the black calfskin strap and also the red in the sub dials.

IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Timepieces For 2016 Hands-On

As part of this year’s new models, IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph introduced a new reference Pilot’s Watch Chronograph range that builds upon the popular collection with new refinements and appeal. In this article, I will be discussing two models – first is the standard reference and which has an iconic black dial. We also have the metallic-blue-dialed variant which is known as the reference Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Le Petit Prince.”

IWC’s Pilot’s Watch Chronograph has always been a more entry-level offering from the brand, but nevertheless one of my favorite IWC watches. For me, this is one of the best-rendered aviator chronograph watches on the market, and Cheap IWC Replica has both the style and quality nailed. The 2016 IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph models aren’t dramatically different from outgoing models, but rather given small updates and new reasons for people who don’t have one of these models to take a close look at them. Back in January, aBlogtoWatch mentioned this and other new IWC Pilot’s Watch releases for the year.

1724
Of course, the lovely metallic-blue-dialed Le Petit Prince model (not a limited edition) is a new offering. For sometime, IWC has been producing Le Petit Prince edition watches of various models they make – many of them being limited editions or more high-end. With the reference, we finally get a blue-dialed variant of the IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 3777 without any price premium. You’ll notice that the IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph also features different hands (polished outsides versus black) which match the metallic blue dial. It’s a handsome alternative to the stock matte black dial for those who perhaps already have an older that doesn’t per se need to be replaced.

1725
One of the reasons that the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph models work so well is the great mixture of case size, style, and wonderful execution of this style of pilot watch dial. IWC arguably offers a best-of-breed set of dial materials and textures resulting in one of the best-looking faces around if you are seeking this style of IWC Replica Watches. Go ahead and compare it with the competition, as, in my opinion, IWC really does “own” this niche of pilot watch styles. A big part of that is how well they do the hands.

1726
IWC includes an admittedly nice black or brown calfskin Santoni strap with the watch, respectively, that comes on a simple buckle (sadly, no deployant clasps on the Santoni straps, as far as we saw). While the Cheap IWC Replica always looks good on these straps, I would urge people interested in the black-dialed to consider the available five-link steel metal bracelet. Not only do I happen to be a major fan of when watches come with bracelets specifically designed for them, but the bracelet here has a micro-adjust feature in the clasp which allows for a precise comfort fit that you can open and loosen a bit on the fly. Micro-adjusts on bracelets are quickly becoming an important feature to look for, and it was a welcome and unexpected treat to see one here in IWC’s close-to-entry-level model family.

IWC Big Pilot’s Heritage Watch 55 Luxury Watch Review

Sometimes you just really want a big watch… and, apparently, other times you want a huge one. Have no doubt that this IWC Big Pilot’s Heritage Replica Watches 55  timepiece is barely wearable in most instances. I mean, yes, you can rather easily (and surprisingly comfortably) attach the titanium case to your wrist on the plush leather strap – but this is a pure novelty watch through and through.

It’s sort of a shame that timepieces like this need to cost so much money. That means only a handful of well-funded weirdo collectors will be able to enjoy (from time to time) a massive modern timepiece such as this that is based on historic military pilot watches built for a certain German army around a certain global conflict during the early middle of the 20th century. Circus size and controversial inspirations are probably a good thing when you want to sex up a wearable desk clock. On that note, the Cheap IWC Replica would make an excellent desk clock. Unfortunately, despite the large case size, it doesn’t have a long power reserve.
If anything, the biggest let down in a timepiece such as this that IWC didn’t make better use of the space inside. With all that case real estate, they could have easily included some movement with a power reserve of at least week or more. I mean, the standard IWC Replica Watches is both an automatic and has a power reserve of about a week. Instead, IWC preferred to go an alternative route and get a bit more vintage chic with the mechanism inside of this reference 5104 timepiece.

IWC Big Pilot’s Heritage Replica Watches 55

IWC Big Pilot’s Heritage Replica Watches 55

For the movement, IWC chose their in-house-made caliber 98300 which operates at 2.5Hz and has a power reserve of just 46 hours, being manually wound. The idea here is likely that Replica Watches UK wanted to convey the most pure sense of “old-time winding” since on most accounts the caliber 98300 (despite its contemporary construction) is based on rather old horological architecture. What it lacks in things like performance, complexity, and convenience, it makes up for in feeling like you are winding up an old timepiece – which is exactly the feeling you want while driving around in your modern automobile enjoying electronic… everything… as you appreciate the tick tick tick of your timepiece inspired by yesterday’s yesterday.

1719
IWC makes it clear that this reference 5104 watch is “aimed primarily at collectors and lovers of authentic pilot’s watches.” Aren’t the majority of people buying expensive mechanical timepieces collectors? I suppose not everyone can have one of the original pieces from 1940. Perhaps Cheap IWC Replica should make the timepiece part of a collector’s kit that includes a bomber’s jacket, scarf, hat, gloves, and goggles. What the hell, just double the price and call it a kit. I really don’t think enough “collectors’ watches” come with enough lifestyle accessories. Doesn’t IWC work with Santoni and enough other fine leather makers to make something like that happen?

1720
Speaking of straps, attached to the IWC Big Pilot’s Heritage Watch 55 is a thick brown calfskin strap that is designed like a cross between a pilot and NATO strap. That means the strap itself is very long (if needed), which is sort of good because I think “back-in-the-day” timepieces such as this were often worn on the thigh (while a pilot was seated in the cockpit, that is). That makes me happy, as I don’t find enough thigh-sized straps available – especially not at IWC quality.

IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch Chronograph

It might be the year of the monkey, but for IWC, it’s been the year of the pilot watch. After a series of well-received updates to both its Top Gun and Classic pilot collections announced at SIHH 2016, it could be argued that the IWC Pilot’s Replica Watches Schaffhausen manufacture’s bread-and-butter fare is punctuating a return to its former glory, and not a moment too soon. After spending a little in-person time with the IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Top Gun Miramar, our initial impressions of the collection’s latest updates are affirmed. In both execution and spirit, this is a considerably more reasonable, yet still ultra-masculine pilot’s watch finally deserving of its name shared with the most elite flight school in the military.

At first glance, the mid-century “B-uhr” observer DNA is still very much a part of the bi-compax IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Top Gun Miramar, with signatures like the cream-colored outer minute track sharply contrasting with the matte-grey dial and red inner hour markers – details which persist from the outgoing version. As before, the polished black ceramic case and military-inspired livery yield a rugged exterior that certainly feels as though it’d be right at home in the cockpit of an F-22 – or at least behind the wheel of a Willys Edition Jeep Wrangler, for those of us mortals who don’t pull on a Nomex flight suit before heading to the office.
So what’s all the fuss with the new Cheap IWC Replica Top Gun Miramar iteration? First and foremost, is how the case has been mercifully reduced to a more practical 44mm down from 46mm, which better suits the watch for a wider range of wrist sizes and casual-wear contexts. The ceramic case composition, coupled with the new dimensions yields a deceptively lightweight wrist presence that wears much more comfortably than any of its stainless steel cousins in the Pilot’s family. The decrease in size also helps consolidate the dial a fair bit – reducing the overall amount of unused real estate and improving the overall proportions between the hour and minute hands, and the information they relay.

1713
Another appreciated change is how the critically panned altimeter-style date window has been edited down to a single date aperture, which balances out the dial with greater efficiency. Granted, a next-level move on IWC Replica Watches part would have been matching the date wheel to the gray dial, or at least using red instead of white-colored numerals. If Sinn can do it, IWC’s in-house movement manufacture certainly could, but we’ll just have to be happy with the standard, albeit vastly improved date window as it stands.

1714
I’d be remiss to forgo an explanation of the Miramar designation, though I’d bet a vast majority of readers here are familiar with it already. Miramar is the name of the air force base in San Diego, CA, where Cheap IWC Pilot’s Replica Watches were trained, though that base has actually moved to Nevada. IWC retains the rights of the logo from the movie Top Gun and, to the glee of some and the cringing of others, it is right on the caseback as with previous Top Gun watches. Thankfully, it’s not done in full color like the models from a few years back. It annoys some people, but it’s easy enough to overlook if you otherwise like the watch overall.

IWC Ingenieur Dual Time

Angus Davies provides an in-depth review of the IWC Ingenieur Dual Time. This recently launched watch is equipped with a GMT function, proving highly useful for today’s battle weary business traveler. You can read more from Angus on his Escapement watch blog.

As a child, the mere thought of flying evoked effervescent excitement. Air travel seemed glamorous. I recall sleepless nights, yearning for time to speedily evaporate in order that adventures could ensue. Flying to foreign shores offered new sights, sounds and experiences for a prepubescent boy and the prospect of visiting the cockpit, meeting the pilot, was always the highlight of any flight.

1851
My current occupation now means I frequently face the hostile prospect of flying. Air travel has become a test of endurance, not for the faint-hearted. Indeed, flying from my local airport is akin to undertaking a commando assault course and, seemingly, no less physically arduous.First, there is the need to join a seemingly endless security queue where everyone is viewed with suspicion. “Due diligence” necessitates stringent security controls and there is a ubiquitous sense of distrust. When flying via some airports this is tempered with a sense of warmth and humanity, but sadly not always.There is usually a need to partially undress. The removal of jackets, scarves, belts and shoes is typical of most airports.After passing through security, only then can the intrepid traveler look forward to the sight of soiled coffee tables and beer-swilling miscreants enjoying a liquid breakfast before being squashed into an undersized seat aboard a plane.Cheap IWC Replica, the masters of masculine timepieces, revisited its former Ingenieur collection, launching a plethora of octane-inspired watches. This year, it has been busy again, augmenting the range with some interesting new models.

1852
The new Ingenieur Dual Time, when compared with its siblings, is a rather understated affair, measuring a comparatively restrained 43mm in diameter. This IWC Replica Watches is not only easy on the eye but, most pertinently, it is perfectly suited for business travel, courtesy of an additional hour hand allowing the wearer to display a second local time of their choosing.The hour and minutes hands are bold and edged with a resplendent silvery finish, articulating time with notable lucidity. The hours are marked with applied and faceted batons, with a soupçon of purplish-blue detail to their centers.Encircling the dial, a 24-hour ring is used to read-off the prevailing hour in a second time zone. Moreover, the white numerals are presented on a colored background, purple for nocturnal hours and grey when displaying daylight hours. This simple but effective aspect to the specification proves highly intuitive and should prevent phoning home at an inopportune hour. A small, attractive detail is the depiction of the midnight hour in red, matching the tip found on the central seconds hand. Indeed, one key strength of the design language selected by IWC Replica Watches UK is the restricted and judicious palette of colors employed.

1853
IWC has incorporated an abundance of smile-inducing details which will no doubt bestow many years of ownership delight. The folding clasp on the bracelet is adorned with perlage, a motif I am more accustomed to seeing on the main plate of a Luxury Fake Watches movement. This charming detail provides a visual reminder of the mechanical heart beating within the watch.On the clasp, a highly polished rectangular canvas, with rounded corners, features the maker’s nomenclature. It looks magnificent in its showroom-fresh state, however, I suspect it will become increasingly scratched with the onset of years; a satin brushed finish may have proved more practical. It is one of the only two areas I would criticize, the other being the absence of an exhibition case back. Nevertheless, don’t misconstrue, I love this watch.IWC Replica Watches has produced an exquisite timepiece which blends handsome aesthetics with the useful complication of a GMT, or dual time function. There is much to commend this watch.

IWC Pilot’s Replica Watches Chronograph

When IWC opened its new boutique in Amsterdam last May, we at Monochrome Watches had a chance to get some hands-on time with the new IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Le Petit Prince.” This latest edition of the IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph features a striking blue dial and is the third edition to support the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Youth Foundation and its mission of battling illiteracy.

Last year, IWC introduced two other ‘Le Petit Prince’ editions: a Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition “Le Petit Prince” and the Pilot’s Watch Mark XVII Edition “Le Petit Prince.” Both featured a similar blue dial, which seems to be Cheap IWC Replica trademark in its special editions for charities; it also used one on the Portuguese Chronograph Classic Laureus Edition that was introduced a while back. The new IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Le Petit Prince” is also a “boutique edition,” meaning it’s only available in IWC Replica Watches boutiques.

1736
This watch is similar, technically speaking, to the standard IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph that also features Replica Watches UK — a modified Valjoux 7750 — and comes in a 43-mm, round, stainless-steel case. What’s different is the “midnight blue” dial, with large applied hour markers at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock. The Arabic numerals and the hands are filled with Super-LumiNova for superb legibility in the dark.

1737
The other difference, of course, is an engraving of Exupéry’s Little Prince character on the caseback. Check your local IWC boutique for availability or visit the IWC

IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch Chronograph Edition

The Junkers JU-52 was manufactured between 1932 and 1945. It provided service for military operations, as well as for civil use. It was used by German and Swiss commercial carriers alike. The JU-52 revolutionized flight at the time, with its unusual, corrugated Duralumin fuselage. Duralumin, an alloy of aluminum, copper and magnesium, is both strong and light. These properties, combined with Cheap IWC Replica three powerful radial engines, allowed the civil aircraft to travel greater distances than before.Various engines were used in the JU-52 in its early life, but the primary power plant for this aircraft was the BMW 132. This engine had nine cylinders and a displacement of 27.7 liters and produced between 700 – 900 horsepower, depending on the engine variant used.The 17-seat airliner eschewed the superfluous and stuck to flight essentials, making it both reliable and, notably for the period, capable of long distance travel. The Swiss Air Force operated the plane from 1939 to circa 1982, making it probably the last and longest serving JU-52 in any air force.

IWC, a brand synonymous with producing pilots’ IWC Replica Watches since the 1930s, has been a longstanding supporter of a Swiss airline which continues to fly JU-52s. JU-AIR, an airline founded solely to preserve the JU-52, having procured the remaining planes from the Swiss Air Force, is privately owned and is assisted by a team of volunteers. The airline, based in Dübendorf, near Zurich, operates four JU-52 aircraft, one of which carries the IWC nomenclature on its wings and tail section, in recognition of the financial support provided by the Schaffhausen-based watch brand. This year, to celebrate 20 years of working with JU-AIR, Replica Watches UK has produced a special chronograph, limited to only 500 pieces.In 2012, IWC revisited its Pilots’ watches, launching several new models, including a very handsome timepiece, the Spitfire Chronograph, which features a stunning ardoise dial. It is this model that has provided the basis for this special chronograph, the Edition “JU-AIR.”

1587
The hours are marked with applied Arabic numerals, lined with white luminescent material in their centers. A triangular index, typical of pilots’ watches of the 1930s and 1940s, appears at 12 o’clock. This was a feature on the legendary Big Pilot’s Watch 52 T.S.C of 1940 and continues to grace the dial of today’s IWC Big Pilot.At 3 o’clock, the date is shown via an elongated aperture, resembling an altimeter. It reveals the prevailing date, indicated with a red triangle positioned adjacent, together with the yesterday’s and tomorrow’s dates. It is intuitive to use and interpretation is simple.“Simple” is a word that could easily be used to describe the overall dial design. This is not a criticism, but rather a compliment, as the Luxury Fake Watches conveys purely the essential — typical of a cockpit instrument. However, the perception of seeming simplicity is overturned with prolonged examination. Scrutinizing the dial closely reveals this is actually a complex dial construction with numerous levels to its composition. The result is an abundance of charm which should confer lasting ownership enjoyment.
