The evolution of an iconic design is interesting. How do designers keep something fresh, without losing the identity that made it an icon in the first place? Be it the iPhone, the Porsche 911 or the Nike Air Jordan sneaker, it’s a challenge that organisations around the world struggle with and this year UK Swiss replica IWC took up the challenge to modernise the Big Pilot. The result? You’re looking at the all-new cheap fake IWC Big Pilot 43, with a more widely wearable case, a cleverly engineered new strap system and a redesigned dial layout.
The case of the 1:1 replica IWC Big Pilot 43 is the big story here, even though it’s smaller than the older generation. The Schaffhausen based firm has shrunk the once hulking case from 46mm down to (you guessed it) 43mm, which is a significant step in the history of this iconic pilot’s design. The Rock famously makes a 46mm reference look tiny, but for the rest of us who aren’t 6’5″ and 120kg+ it was a watch that could wear you if you weren’t careful.
The new 43mm case is a welcome move by the brand that will undoubtedly make it significantly more wearable for us mere mortals, opening up whole new markets for IWC fake for men UK to tell the story of the Big Pilot to. At 13.6mm thick it maintains the serious wrist presence that you’re looking for if you’re in the market for a super clone IWC Big Pilot, and still has the instantly recognisable half-onion crown.
Also new this year for the high quality replica IWC Big Pilot 43 is the sapphire crystal caseback, which offers a full view of the nicely finished movement within. If that wasn’t enough, the crown screws down, guaranteeing the watch to 100m of water resistance, putting it in proper sports watch territory.
The redesigned dial is partially due to the new movement within the Swiss movement fake IWC, which we’ll get to shortly. On the 46mm references, the dial featured a power reserve indicator at 3 o’clock (a necessary feature in a watch that boasts seven days of power reserve) and a date at 6 o’clock.
In the new 43mm replica watches for sale UK, both of these are gone, leaving significantly more negative space across the dial, which actually serves to further emphasise the super-legible Arabic numerals around the dial.
Available in either a sunburst finished blue or a more evenly finished black, there’s something for everyone here.
Powering this new collection is the IWC in-house caliber 82100, which ticks away at 28,800 vph and is fitted with the efficient luxury fake IWC Pellaton automatic winding system.
The main change here is the power reserve, which is now 60 hours compared to the 168 hours of the 46mm reference. Yes it’s less than the previous version, but 60 hours is more than enough if you wear your best quality copy IWC Big Pilot 43 everyday, and unlikely to be vastly different from any of the other watches in your collection.
