What started under the Colours of TOP GUN name is expanded once more with the introduction of the IWC Big Pilot’s Replica Watch Perpetual Calendar TOP GUN Lake Tahoe IW503008. And sure, the concept of a coloured Big Pilot’s Watch with a perpetual calendar display isn’t entirely new, but looks oh-so-cool in full white ceramic!
The ‘Colours of TOP GUN‘ sub-genre of IWC watches comprises a few colours so far, all executed in ceramic or Ceratanium.It’s no surprise what this one is called, as the 46.5mm wide and fully white ceramic case screams ‘Lake Tahoe’ from top to bottom. The all-white look is bold and daring, and definitely won’t go unnoticed when on the wrist. It’s fitted with a pressure-protected sapphire crystal front and back, and a steel diamond-shaped crown.
The matte black dial shows no surprises, as it spreads all QP indications around the dial in the familiar Big Pilot’s Replica Watches For Sale way. There’s plenty of canvas to be used, so even with all this information, it remains legible thanks to the balanced subdials, sharp contrast and large hands. The indications include the time, obviously, paired with the date, day of the week, month, year, power reserve and perpetual moon phase.
All this is driven by the Calibre 52615, which we know quite well from all the previous Big Pilot QP watches. Developed by Kurt Klaus in the 1980s, this large automatic movement fills the entire case and gets its energy from the large openworked central rotor. It can store a massive 168 hours, or 7 days of power reserve. The finishing includes the usual stuff, such as Côtes de Genève and perlage.
The IWC Big Pilot’s Replica Swiss Movement comes on a white rubber strap with a textile inlay and the signature deployant clasp.
Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Tribute to 3705”
Early in 2021, IWC introduced its Pilot’s Replica Watch Chronograph reference IW387905, better known as the “Tribute to 3705”. It was an era when this line was still referred to as “Fliegerchronograph”. At the time, the 3705 was a Valjoux 7750-powered 39mm chronograph in a ceramic case.
Not an exact copy
This tribute watch is slightly larger at 41 mm. It uses Best IWC Replica Watch own Ceratanium, a titanium alloy that looks like a 1994 ceramic case. In addition, the movement has been replaced by IWC’s internal 69380 movement. It is not an exact copy or re-edit, but a tribute. I like this. If I were the owner of the original 3705, I wouldn’t like IWC launching a copy of this Fake IWC Watch in about 25 years.
Big Pilot’s Watch Top Gun Edition “Mojave Desert”
This Copy IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Top Gun Edition “Mojave Desert”case is 46 mm in diameter, which is not suitable for the faint-hearted. But this also applies to the aesthetics of this watch, which uses sand-colored ceramic and a brown dial. When we had this watch in the office, my colleague Lex liked it very much, so it was difficult to take it off the wrist.
Not your “only watch”
In this case, I think the “Mojave Desert” edition is doing very well, it may not be the second or third Big Pilot IWC Replica Watches Reviews in your collection. However, I do believe that, given its outspoken design, color and size, this watch cannot be your “only watch”. Inside is IWC’s 52110 movement, a large and beautiful automatic movement. However, this time it was concealed by a bottom cover with an engraving of Top Gun.
IWC Replica Swiss Movement Watches tribute to the Blue Angels translates into this blue ceramic 44.5mm Pilot’s Watch Chronograph. The watch is powered by the same movement as in the “Tribute to 3705”. It comes with a blue rubber strap with a textile inlay. Blue and yellow are the colors of the Blue Angels, and it’s unmistakably a tribute to this elite squadron.
