The Top Gun has largely relied on a singular colour of ceramic – black in either a matte or glossy finish. IWC Replica Watches did offer a few models with coloured ceramic cases, until now.
The two new models double the range of ceramic colours offered by IWC. They join the Pilot’s Watch “Mojave” editions launched in 2019 that had an unusual sand-coloured ceramic case, and last year’s “Laureus Sport for Good” in blue ceramic.
Long the brand’s bestselling line, the Pilot’s Replica Watch has been a focus of IWC in recent few years. The brand has made safe bets with iterating on popular models that have received upgrades such as in-house movements, new dial colours, or more compact cases in new materials.
For anyone who likes the standard pilot’s chronograph but wants something more uncommon this is it. While the highlight of the pair is the case material, it’s worth noting that the new colours were achieved with no compromises to the watch’s functionality and performance.
Both Luxury replica watches are still very much a “tool watch” with their low-key palette, and also retain all the important features that characterise IWC’s pilot’s watches, such as resistance to negative pressure and magnetism.
And among the pair the “Stormtrooper” in white is the standout. It is also unique because steel can coated to achieve a similar green hue, something that is not possible with white, at least with the same bright tone.
One of the key features of the new chronographs is accessibility – they are regular production models with reasonable retail prices. The Best IWC replica watches case diameter of 44.5 mm is enormous, especially compared to the steel pilot’s chronograph that’s 41 mm.
Though it did not invent the ceramic watch case, IWC was an early adopter of the material, having introduced a ceramic case as early as 1986 with the Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar ref. 3755 that was available in either black or white ceramic.
The cases have the same profile with identical finishing of simple, uniform micro-blasting that creates a finely grained surface. One potential upgrade here would be polished bevels along the lugs, which are found on the steel case pilot’s quality replica watch.
On both chronographs the screwed-in case back, as well as the crown and pushers, are not ceramic. That is the norm for ceramic watches since the material cannot withstand torsional stress. As a result, ceramic is usually used only for static components.
Used for the entire case in Cheap IWC Replica top-of-the-line pilot’s watches like the Tribute to 3705, material is essentially titanium that’s been baked in an oven to form a ceramic coating over its surface that gives it better scratch resistance as well as a charcoal finish.
