IWC unveils a new group of watches added to their Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN collection.Among them is theIWC Pilot’s Replica Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Edition “Mojave Desert,” a unique take on a colorway you don’t see all that often, and a standout addition to IWC’s Pilot watches in general.IWC creates a sand-colored ceramic case.
We typically see ceramic used for bezel inserts, as it’s not as easy to produce, color, or manipulate as metal. The argument could be made that using ceramic as a case material is a bad idea due to its nature of cracking or shattering.
The Copy IWC Watch is quite legible considering how bland a watch like this could have been, and I can really get behind the brown dial with tan hands and hour markers, so I am hoping to see more of this colorway in the future.
Inspired by the inside of the IWC Pilots Replica, rather than exterior, this Timezoner comes in a great matte black dial and also has an all-new movement. The tastefully done matte black dial and green dial watches look superior to previous Spitfire iterations, and are much more in line with what buyers want these days.
Being located at 12 o’clock rather than 3 o’clock drastically helps with the IWC Replica Watches symmetry issue. Secondly, with a design that opts out of the GMT hand, there has to be a way of differentiating a 24-hour aperture from a date aperture, and this is a decent execution.
This is a modified movement in the 82000 caliber family from IWCReplica Watcheswhich all have the Pellaton automatic winding system, as well as use of ceramic in several areas of the movement. This allows the movement to not wear down much, allowing for long-term accuracy and less servicing needed in the long term.
You won’t see the movement here, though, as there is a closed case back that has the Silver Spitfire engraved along with whatever number out of 250 the specific piece is. The Replica Swiss Movement Watches is water resistant to 60M, as well.
