Out of the five selected watches, this one has certainly caused a lot of debate. While we applaud the introduction of the smaller, wrist-friendlier cheap fake IWC Big Pilot’s Watch 43, we also feel for the fact some people do not consider it a true 1:1 replica IWC Big Pilot’s Watch. As it does without the emblematic 7-day power reserve indication or at least a subdial of some sort at 3 o’clock, it seems to be lacking something.
The specs are rather solid though, both from its exterior components and the mechanical side of things. It relies on UK Swiss made replica IWC’s central-seconds calibre 82100, comes in steel, with black or blue dials and interchangeable bracelet and strap options. It retails for EUR 8,950 on leather, and EUR 9.950 on steel bracelet.
