Swiss IWC Schaffhausen Replica adds two references with black dials to the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 collection. One is fitted with a black calfskin strap, and the other with a high-grade stainless steel bracelet. Both novelties feature the IWC EasX-CHANGE® system for quick and easy strap exchange and are water-resistant to 10 bar.
IWC Schaffhausen introduced the Cheap Pilot’s Replica Watch Chronograph 41. With a case diameter of 41 and a lug-to-lug distance of 51.8 mm, this chronograph offers excellent wearability even on slender wrists. Other key characteristics such as the 10 bar water-resistant case and the integrated EasX-CHANGE® quick change system make this reference a fully versatile sports watch.
The dial features the iconic design in the style of an easyto-read cockpit instrument design that has become the hallmark of IWC Pilot’s high quality best replica watches. The stopped minutes are displayed at 12 o’clock and the minutes at 9 o’clock. In addition, the chronograph also features a day and date aperture at 3 o’clock and a small seconds display at 6 o’clock.
After initially launching the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 with exacty quality with blue and green dials, IWC is now extending the collection with two new versions which feature black dials. The first one (Ref. IW388111) is fitted with a black calfskin strap whereas the second one (Ref. IW388113) features a sophisticated 5-link stainless steel bracelet with a folding clasp. The bracelet is beautifully finished and extremely comfortable to wear on the wrist.
Both new models are powered by the AAA IWC Replica Watches-manufactured 69385 calibre movement. This mechanical chronograph movement in a classic column-wheel design consists of 231 individual parts and is visible through the sapphire glass case back. The bi-directional pawl winding system builds up a power reserve of 46 hours in the mainspring.
There has been the Type XX update, Replica Big Pilot Annual Calendar Le Petit Prince and Top Gun Ceramics. However, IWC are no one trick pony, also producing a wide range of dress and sports watches. The most popular of which is the Portugeiser with two classic examples, the IWC Portugeiser Automatic IW371620 and Portugeiser Chronograph IW500715, now available in “Blue Panda” colourways.
Essentially, the bicompax layout of subdials on both Best IWC Replica Watches are blue, set into a white dial. The two-tone pattern riffs on the traditional black and white of the panda design but with an aquatic edge that gives them the “Blue Panda” nickname. The IWC Portugeiser Automatic features its small seconds and power reserve subdials in a horizontal format while the Chronograph’s 30-minute timer and small seconds are stacked vertically.
Alongside the blue subdials, both Copy IWC Watches have blue Arabic numerals and blue feuille hands. While they’re very different watchmakers, the aesthetic of these IWCs remind me of the Marine Torpilleur Panda from Ulysse Nardin. In fact, looking back at the Marine Torpilleur, it was the last time a watchmaker used the term panda for a blue colourway as well, so the comparison is more apt than I thought.
Ultimately the Swiss IWC Portugeiser Automatic IW371620 Replica and Chronograph IW500715 “Blue Pandas” are simple and attractive recolours. Which means the specs will be familiar to anyone who knows the collection. For the Automatic that means a 42.3mm steel case housing the calibre 52010 automatic movement with pellaton winding and a 7-day power reserve. Then the Chronograph has a 41mm diameter case and the calibre 69355, a column wheel chronograph movement with automatic winding and a power reserve of 46-hours.
The Portugeiser Chronograph IW500715 Replica Swiss Madeis presented on a sporty, blue rubber strap while the Automatic IW371620 is on blue alligator leather. Between the difference in strap and substantial difference in movement, the prices of the two watches also differs dramatically.
In addition to launching exciting watches like the Replica Big Pilot’s Top Gun Edition Ceramic, IWC has been quietly revamping a great many of their collections. Foremost among the revamped models is the Mark XX, which received some nice quality-of-life upgrades. The next watch to receive a similar update is the IWC Portofino Chronograph 39 IW391502.
It’s an unexpected choice from Best IWC Replica Watches because the 39mm editions only debuted last year, in fact we covered the launch here. The new watch is virtually identical to those 2021 editions, featuring the same dial design and case, but this time in monochromatic silver white.
What’s new is the movement inside, which has been updated from the Copy IWC Watches For Sale 79350 modified Valjoux 7750 to the in-house IWC 69355. Its 46-hour power reserve is an improvement on the previous calibre but over all it’s very similar with 30-minute timer and small seconds functions in addition to hours, minutes and chronograph seconds.
