Few watches can claim to be true ICONS. The IWC Pilot replica watches is definitely one of them. This world war ii-style pilot watch no longer needs to be introduced. Of course, everyone knows the classic black dial version with a white index (IW500912). But the brand offers more versions – including my favorite “Le Petit Prince” reference. IW500916 – with or without complications. Recently, the brand added a new, retro subset to the Big Pilot series called Heritage, which includes the Watch we’re about to review, the Watch Heritage Bronze IW501005 by IWC Big Pilot. Patina is going up in the sky!
IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Heritage Bronze features the same 46.2mm x 15.4mm case as standard steel. Same shape. What’s changed about the material used: a bronze alloy that has a definite deep gold – when new – or green patina – passes through densely dressed. The selection of this material changed the perception of the top swiss IWC replica watch, making it similar to the old military model. In addition, bronze is a unique material that lives and changes as you wear the watch. The watch shown here is already “aging,” and the entire case has this distinctive green oxide. It’s something that some people will like and some won’t. It’s part of the fun of bronze watches, so pay attention to that before you buy.
Bronze is also used for a diamond-shaped supersized crown, but not for a table bottom cover made of titanium for obvious skin protection reasons. Bronze oxide causes allergic reactions and should not be in direct contact with the skin. The undercover does not contain transparent sapphire (as in the steel model). The cheap fake IWC watches aviator watch is designed as a true instrument for aided navigation (or not, depending on what you want to do with it), its case is protected by a magnetic field, and a soft iron cage surrounds the movement. Similarly, the sapphire crystal on the side of the dial prevents displacement by a sudden drop in pressure.
On the wrist, no surprise. IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Heritage Bronze IW501005 is and still is a Big Pilot. It’s big, it’s thick, it’s heavy, and it’s very important. There was no debate. This is essentially part of the model, and Big Pilot can’t be small, like it or not. The strap is long and thick, again in line with the overall concept of this table. Still, the ears are short and bent enough that once attached to the wrist, the IWC Replica Swiss Movement is balanced and comfortable. Thanks to the bronze case and new dial, the watch is warmer and more vivid than the steel model.
