Last year IWC did a complete overhaul of its range of Pilot’s watches with over a dozen new models from small to large, three-hander to perpetual calendar. But as IWC is wont to do, it has just announced a handful of new aviator’s watches, including a IWC Big Pilot’s Luxury Replica Watch Heritage in bronze.
Despite the influx of bronze cases in recent times, having the trademark IWC pilot’s watch now available in this patina-prone alloy is still something that’s distinct and desirable.
The watch has a case measuring 46.2mm, with a dial also retro-inflected with cream-coloured Super-Luminova for the markers and hands. Notably, the hands are blued steel, as they were on the original, Second World War Beobachtungsuhr IWC Replica Watches China made for the German airforce. Together, the blue hands and faux-vintage lume explain the Heritage moniker.
Like the stock Big Pilot’s Watch, the bronze version is powered by the cal. 52110, an automatic with a seven-day power reserve and IWC’s Cheap Replica Watches patented Pellaton winding mechanism. The case has a titanium back, as well as a soft iron inner cage to protect the movement form magnetism.
Titanium is an eminently sensible case material for the Big Pilot’s Watch, the watch being large and titanium, lightweight. It took a while for IWC Fake Watches to unveil a Big Pilot in the alloy, but finally it has.
The Big Pilot’s Watch Heritage in titanium has the exact same “Heritage” dial with cream Super-Luminova and blue steel hands, except the Top Replica Swiss Watches case is titanium. It’s shares the same specs – 46.2mm case and the seven-day, cal. 52110 inside. Unlike the bronze version, the titanium model is part of the regular collection.
