For years now, IWC has dabbled with the idea that the classic German-style flieger watch can be just as much a lifestyle product as a tool watch. The idea is that the traditional aviator timepiece aesthetic could serve as a handsome men’s jewelry item — in addition to being a sport’s watch. The Cheap IWC Big Pilot’s Replica Watch 43 is indeed 2mm larger, but that doesn’t really have a great effect on the manufacturing cost and its three-hand, no-date movement is arguably simpler than the automatic chronograph.
That Big Pilot’s Watch 43 is a beautiful and simple execution of a classic flieger watch for men who want something both fashionable and manly on their wrist. This 43mm-wide timepiece is the smallest of the iwc replica watches reviews that can go up to 48mm-wide in size. At the time, I nicknamed it the “Littlest Big Pilot.” IWC probably has a new customer base in mind, who is going up to 43mm from perhaps 38-40mm, being their main watch size preference.
The entire wearing experience of the Big Pilot pieces over the years has been to own the “oversize” look. For some people, that comes in at 48mm-wide, and for other people’s anatomy, that could be 43mm-wide. On my wrist, I certainly don’t consider 43mm-wide to be “big,” but it is bold in its proportions, and I actually find the size very comfortable.
The steel case is also 13.6mm-thick and has a lug-to-lug distance of about 52mm. The Best IWC Replica Watches case is water resistant to 100 meters and has a domed AR-coated sapphire crystal over the dial. The most distinctive “Big Pilot” design feature on the case is of course the classic “turnip-style” crown. The crown also happens to be very easy to grip and operate — such designs originally served as crowns a pilot could operate while wearing gloves.
It uses a traditional spring bar, allowing you to use a wide selection of third-party straps— but at the same time allows you to remove the bracelet without any tools. The bracelet itself also features a quick system to adjust the size. Finally, it features perfect iwc replica refined micro-adjust system inside the push-button fold-over deployant, which can increase or decrease the length of the bracelet by a few millimeters on demand.
The weight of the bracelet feels good and wears nicely on the wrist. A lot of people will opt to pair this watch with the traditional pilot-style leather strap, but the bracelet really gives the best iwc replica that status symbol look I feel IWC was going for.To give it the most fashion-friendly look, IWC totally stripped back the pilot’s watch look to its core essence. It is beautiful and effortlessly legible, but like I said, simple.
The wide diameter dial on this model is metallic-blue done in a sunburst finishing, with thick-printed Arabic numeral hour markers and a complete scale of minuter markers. The perfectly sized pilot watch hands complete this conservative sports watch look. Inside the watch is the IWC swiss replica watches made calibre 82100 automatic movement.
