The IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Racer ref. IW378509 Replica still maintains the essence of the original iconic Ingenieur design with a robust stainless steel case measuring 45 mm in diameter, two dial variants —ardoise and silver plated— and available on strap or bracelet.
The IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Racer ref. IW378509 we are reviewing here, is fitted with silver plated dial and black rubber strap with black alligator leather inlay; however, this reference is currently sold on black rubber strap with blue alligator leather inlay.
Perhaps one of the most strikingly beautiful dials out there, the Cheap IWC Replica Ingenieur Chrono Racer is fitted with a silver plated dial that is brushed finished and with an impressive grain and multi-layer construction.
The dial features blued applied raised faceted markers and skeletonized hands —all fitted with luminova including those for the running seconds and the chrono register. One just needs to tilt the watch at the right angle for that blue goodness to appear and mesmerize you.
The IWC Replica Watches dial is well balanced with two subdials featuring highly polished raised surrounds and snailing. The subdial at 6 o’clock is for the running seconds and date aperture, while the one at 12 o’clock is the chronograph totalizer were elapsed hours and minutes can be read at a quick glance —with a circular totalizer that combines the hour and minute hands as if they were a watch-within-a-watch.
To round out the balanced design of the dial, there is a raised flange with a minute chapter ring, a bright red tipped seconds hand and a red “60” in the chapter ring that was inspired by the digital display on the steering wheel of the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team racing car.
The IWC Replica Watches China Wholesale case measures 45 mm in diameter and 14.5 mm in thickness and it feels quite solid and somewhat heavy weighing 165.6 grams. The finish of the case is nicely done with a very smooth satin-brushed finish with alternating mirror polished chamfers on the edges of the case, rectangular chrono pushers, crown guards, bottom part of the bezel and on the perimeter of the solid case back.
The crown, is a screw-down and features the traditional ‘Probus Scafusia’ engraving. The IWC best replica watches in the world is water resistant to 120 meters and is fitted with a solid case back featuring a very nice engraving of a Formula One racing car. If you are a Formula One fan like we are, you’ll definitely love this watch.
This rugged timepiece is powered by one of the most efficient movements manufactured entirely by IWC 1:1 replica watches, the automatic flyback chronograph calibre 89361. This in-house movement provides a 68-hour power reserve when fully wound and features a date display with crown-activated rapid advance, a flyback chronograph with combined hour and minute totalizer at 12 o’clock and a small hacking seconds for more precise time setting.
Thanks to the flyback function, pressing the reset button brings the stopwatch hand back to zero and immediately restarts timing, making it perfect for recording pit-stop times. The design of this new in-house movement, took the IWC development team four full years. Perhaps the only thing we dislike about this movement, is that the pushers are quite noisy when pressed and they require a lot of pressure in order to activate the chronograph.
The IWC super clone watch was originally launched with a rubber strap with textile inlay. The strap is very sporty and quite comfortable made of a semi-rigid rubber composite. The alligator inlay is of premium quality and the strap is fitted with a stainless steel IWC pin buckle.
All it takes, is for the wearer to press —with the provided pin pushing tools— the small push-pin located on the corner of the strap to remove the it and quickly change it.
