In with some Portugieser (including the superb automatic timing clock and the constant force the tourbillon) and unexpected wrist watch “hail Pallweber”, after the IWC replica watches on the deployment of all the series 150 limited edition concepts – today we moved into the Pilot’s watch. In line with the IWC universal watch aviator watch big date edition “150 years” reference. 5105, the brand’s first Flieger watch, comes with a big date display.
Updating the concept of the fake IWC Big Pilot watch isn’t easy. In fact, this true history not only has roots that go back to the second world war, but its design is governed by precise code. In order not to destroy the Pilot watch neat style, must add complexity for the watch – please remember, as a military instrument, the wrist should be as clear as possible, so their big diameter, their glowing hands and specific dial.
IWC decided on their iconic wrist Watch for the first time to add a Big Date function, become a part of the 150 series, become the fake IWC Big Pilot ‘s Watch the Big Date Edition “150 Years” Ref. 5105. A Big Date function in the IWC collection is not new, as in the Potomac Philippine’s manual wound. In that watch, however, the 59220 core not only shows a big date, but also a small second hand, a day of the week and a power reserve. There are too many signs for the instrument-inspired aviator watch.
The new Big Pilot’s Watch Big Date, which has benefited from a simplified version of the core, is now 59235. On the dial, the hours and minutes are displayed in the center, the little second hand is at 6, the IWC Replica Swiss Movement is 12 below the triangle index, in an unobtrusive manner. Clearly, this complex integration is still subtle and well integrated into the Big Pilot’s dial. In addition, there are no weekly instructions or power reserves (at least on the side of the dial).
In terms of design, the new Big Pilot ‘s Watch the Big Date 5105 dependent on the same as the other products in the 150 s inspiration, means that there are two color optional specular paint dial – white with black index and Numbers, plus the pointer or blue, blue white pointer to index and figures and rhodium plating. As we’ve seen on the Jubilee top swiss IWC replica watch before, the lacquered dial provides an excellent texture designed to mimic enamel. It was quite surprising to see it on the watch, but the results were happy.
In this case, there is no evolution in style or size because it relies on the Big Pilot’s case — 46.2mm in diameter, made of stainless steel. As a hand – on – the – chain watch, it is slightly thinner (relatively speaking) than the standard large pilot, at 15.2 mm. The main difference here is that the case is polished rather than brushed. On the wrist, no surprise, big date reference. 5105 is a big pilot… Big, thick and overblown, but it’s part of the concept behind the watch.
