Watch Review: IWC Pilot’s Replica Edition ‘Tribute To 3705’

IWC Reference 3705 Replica is first black zirconia ceramic pilot watch. The novelty and early use of black ceramic make it a very charming watch.

The IWC pilot chronograph “Tribute To 3705” is significantly different in the case material, case size and movement, and some dial details used.

Ceramics are less fragile than titanium or gold-if such a force is applied to a ceramic case to break it, the same force will undoubtedly destroy the titanium or gold case irreversibly. Maybe these won’t be damaged, but they won’t be preserved because of a little polishing.

The 41mm wide Ceratanium® case IWC Replica Watch is indeed lightweight and seems to have the flattering thermal properties of titanium-which means it is not a hockey puck that is iced on the wrist like a steel watch. Wear it in a cold place. The reduced weight and comfortable calfskin strap also subtly conceal its 15.3mm thickness. IWC even managed to maintain a small sloping edge that runs all the way along the edge of the lug-it can only be seen in the correct light, but if it does, it must be a treat.

The internal movement of the IWC pilot chronograph “Tribute To 3705” is the movement 69380 manufactured by IWC. This is not only better than the internal state of the 7750, but also because it provides a column wheel and combines it with a two-way pawl winding system for effective rewinding.

The new Cheap IWC Replica has running seconds at 6 o’clock, so the two chronograph subdials are no longer on the vertical plane, but are next to each other at 9 and 12 o’clock.
