The Moon and Tides is the most intriguing new IWC Replica Yacht Club edition and the only one in a full rose-gold case. Measuring 44.5 mm in diameter and 14.4 mm thick, the case houses behind its navy blue dial the in-house, automatic Caliber 82835, enhanced here for the first time with a tides display function.
Developed for the yachtsmen whose passion inspired the collection, its useful features include the subdial at 6 o’clock which indicates the expected times for the next high and low water, along with the double moon phase display at 12 o’clock, which shows spring and neap tides as well as information about the strength of the current tides.The plating on the hour and minute hands and the hour appliqués are in the same 5N rose gold as the case.
The automatic Caliber 82835 beats in full view behind a sapphire caseback. Outfitted with the all-new module for the tide displays and incorporating IWC Replica Watch Pellaton winding system with high-tech ceramic components, it stores a respectable power reserve of 68 hours. The watch is mounted on a blue textile strap that echoes the maritime theme of the dial, and of the watch itself.
The latest versions of the Copy Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph include two in stainless steel cases with steel bracelets — one with a silvered dial with blue highlights, the other, a blue dial with white details — and one two-tone steel-and-rose-gold model with a silvered dial, whose gold details include the hands, hour numerals, bezel, and the center links of the bracelet.
The IWC Replica cases measure 44.6 mm, the same as the Moon & Tides model, and the dial layout showcases the user-friendly chronograph readout at 12 o’clock, which tallies both elapsed hours and minutes on a single subdial.
Both of these two brands have some very popular models and even a few iconic replica watches.
Holding a IWC Replica watch from each of these two brands in your hands, you will feel the type of weight you would expect from a luxury wristwatch. Both brands take pride in producing a beautifully finished product. This is most apparent in models that have a sapphire case back where you can see the mechanical movement in action.
Oftentimes they will feature a solid gold weighted rotor on their self-winding models which look exquisite. They use high-quality leather for their straps which are built solid but also provide comfort.
The quality is certainly there for both and can often measure up to the type of craftsmanship you would expect from an even more expensive brand. Through their choice of materials, the various finishing techniques and creative engravings on the case and IWC Replica Watches movement, you’ll really feel like you’re getting your money’s worth.
One of the factors that easily wins the hearts and souls of watch lovers the world over is the actual horology. The tradecraft and micromechanical prowess. Being able to make a mechanical watch does all sorts of amazing things other than just tell the time with added features known in the industry as complications.
BothCopy IWC and Jaeger LeCoultre have a recently instituted extended warranty option. This new warranty allows you to take the standard 2-year warranty that comes with your watch and extend it by an additional 6 years. Both brands allow you to have up to an 8-year warranty with registration.
Modern flieger Replica watches still largely stick to that classic template, but take their own liberties in design to stand out from the pack.
Part luxury copy watch, part mechanical achievement, the Big Pilot is both big in size and in attitude. At 46.2mm and 15.5mm thick, this watch really packs a punch on the wrist. Inside the watch, there’s a 52110 Calibre IWC automatic movement that builds up to a 168 hour power reserve — that’s a full seven days!
It’s finished with Côtes de Genève and perlage throughout, even through it’s protected by a solid steel case back. The numerals and hands are big, bold, and very easy to read. At 3:oo, you’ll notice the power reserve indicator with a scale from 1 to 7 days and a date display at 6:00. The IWC Big Pilot Replica case finishing is largely brushed, with a slim polished bezel around the dial.
The large, onion-shaped crown is precisely cut and polished to a shine, and its size makes for easy operation. The AAA Replica Big Pilot is a modern classic that mixes traditional Flieger aesthetics with modern watchmaking technology and a premium, luxury oriented finish, making it highly prized by collectors.
