IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch ‘The Longest Flight’ Hands-On

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 IWC Replica Watches which 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.
