All the rage at the IWC booth during the 2023 edition of Watches & Wonders was the revamped Genta Ingenieur, and rightfully so, for the most part. This story, however, is not about the Ingenieur, but perfect replica IWC’s bread and butter – pilot’s replica watches for sale – and more specifically, the brand new Pilot’s Chronograph 41 in stunning green and gold.
The cheap fake IWC Pilot’s range from IWC has long been their front-running sports offering, especially once updated with the new EasX-CHANGE system and 100 metres of water resistance, though this latest release strays from the all-out sporty intentions of its other collection siblings. The luxurious brushing and heft of solid rose gold, paired with a sunburst green dial, makes this luxury super clone IWC Pilot’s Chrono a lot more suited to polo shirts and loafers than a pilot’s cockpit. Check out our video overview of the piece below, or read on for more details.
Though cased in solid gold, it’s the sunburst finish of the green dial, along with its azurage brushed sub-registers, that are the more striking. With white lume throughout, with the exception of the running seconds at 6 o’clock in red, the green isn’t overly loud, as it mostly takes on deep emerald tones. The gold-plated sword handset matches the case in material, while still offering decent legibility. Finally, the dial is kept balanced by the white day and date wheels at three o’clock, separating the 1:1 fake IWC logo and the denomination of the brand’s Schaffhausen headquarters.
A few years ago, or however many before green became the new black, many a watch snob would pompously lift their noses at the prospect of a green dial, as it was deemed difficult to pair with anything. Nowadays, that has been completely debunked, as the colour fits gold, white metal and PVD cases just as well as any other, and AAA quality replica IWC’s latest attempt is just stunning. The warmth of the gold plays well with the particular shade of green, as does the mostly brushed finish, utilising polishing only as the highlights for the bezel and pushers. As is the case with any best quality fake IWC Pilot’s Chronograph in 41mm, the case is a lot better suited for those with larger wrists, owing to its height and lug-to-lug measurements of 14.5mm and 51.4mm, respectively. Sapphire crystals are present both over the dial and the caseback, the latter of which is screwed-down, helping the 100-metre water resistance alongside the screw-down crown.
Swiss movement replica IWC has shown keen interest in getting the word out on their patented quick exchange system that makes their Pilot’s offering that much more versatile. Christened EasX-CHANGE, the system allows the wearer to quickly and effortlessly switch out their straps and buckles, and the green and gold IWC Pilot’s Chrono 41 fake for men comes ready with a 20mm rubber strap equipped with the feature.
Shifting away from the venerable Valjoux 7750, top quality fake IWC has been using the 69385 column wheel chronograph movement since 2021, which offers the added benefit of smoother pusher operation due to moving away from lever actuation, as well as a 46 hour power reserve.
