At 43mm in diameter, the IWC Pilots Quality Replica Watch Spitfire Chronograph is the largest watch in my collection. I love my 34mm Rolex. I have no problem with small diameter watches, they are comfortable. To be honest, I’m a little concerned about the feel of wearing the 43mm wristband.
For the first time I own this IWC Replica Swiss Made, if I can handle the size, I will go back and forth. I wear it on an Aaron Bespoke strap and bracelet. Both look great. Bracelets are a beautiful thing.
Each link is removable, there’s a fantastic fine-tuning mechanism on the clasp, and its taper is perfect for my averagely gifted wrist. The bracelet is victory. Feels solid and looks solid. Here’s everything you could want from a luxury watch.
Equipped with a flyback chronograph, this movement runs flawlessly and maintains excellent time. Then there’s the date, which is a very collectible triple date because it was only produced for a short period of time. Aesthetically, I don’t mind a triple date, especially since these AAA IWC Replica Watches date changes aren’t super snappy, but I really prefer a snappy date, with or without a triple display.
As for the dial. It’s a sunburst slate dial that looks great in a lot of lights, and what really sets it apart from other Spitfires is the applied numbers. They do a great job and the streamer is great. This Best Replica IWC Pilots Watch Spitfire Chronograph is an upgrade to the more mundane reference and is easy to tell from the look and feel.
IWC Mark XVIII (18) Pilot Watch
The IWC Mark XVIII (18) Knockoff Watch is a modern watch with an aesthetic inspired by the classic pilot watches from many years ago. This iteration of the Mark XVIII features a black textured dial with contrasting white markers and Arabic numerals.
However, once the light dims, it becomes another story. Frankly, the Mark XVIII’s brightness leaves a lot to be desired. Only the main markers (12 triangles, 3, 6, 9) are lumed.
A point of contention with the Cheap IWC Mark XVIII Replica is the position of the date window. When I first started looking at the pictures, I thought it was harsh and out of place, but on the wrist, everything was forgiven. I got over it quickly because the overall aesthetic is a classic pilot’s watch and the date window is just hidden.
The watch wears slightly more than its 40mm diameter would suggest, mostly due to its 50mm long lug-to-lug measurement. Add that to its 11mm case thickness and you have a fairly flat watch. Fits on my 16.2cm wrist, but is comfortable to wear thanks to the downward sloping lugs that help hug the wrist.
The brushed finish of the case has a soft glow that you won’t find on more affordable pieces. The IWC Replica Watch way the case gleams on the wrist with its brushed finish and highly polished bevels proves its status as a premium pilot’s watch. Then, when the light hits it the right way, a thin, highly polished ring is revealed around the dial. This is sublime.
