Appreciation of the replica IWC 41mm bronze pilot chronograph watch

The Pilot’s Watch series is one of IWC’s flagship products and has been highly regarded since the mid-1990s. In 2021, IWC has upgraded its pilot chronograph watch, streamlined the case size and equipped it with a new self-made movement. After launching stainless steel models and Ceratanium titanium models, the brand is now leading the trend with the launch of a new 41 mm bronze pilot chronograph watch (model: IW388109).

The new replica watch has a diameter of 41 mm and a thickness of 14.5 mm, with balanced proportions. The case is made of bronze, an alloy that, in addition to copper, also adds a certain amount of aluminum and iron, making the alloy about 50% harder than standard bronze. In addition, IWC also emphasized the biocompatibility of the material. Over time, bronze develops a unique oxide layer, giving each watch its unique character and look. The case is fully sandblasted, equipped with a bronze crown and pushers, an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, a titanium case back, and is water-resistant to 100 meters.

The matte dark blue dial contrasts sharply with the bronze case, but just right. All design elements, including the hour markers, minute track, brand logo, and day and date display windows, are decorated in beige. The gold-plated hands and hour markers are coated with fluorescent material at the 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock positions to ensure they are clearly visible in dark environments. The red small seconds hand is located above the 6 o’clock position, which is eye-catching and easy to identify.

Through the back of the watch, the wearer can appreciate the 69385 self-made movement. This automatic chronograph movement is assembled from 231 parts, including 33 jewels. The vibration frequency is as high as 28,800 times per hour (4 Hz), and is equipped with a column wheel mechanism, a hollow oscillating weight and a two-way pawl winding system, which can provide a power reserve of up to 46 hours. In addition, the movement is decorated with exquisite circular stripes and fish scale patterns, demonstrating its excellent craftsmanship. This replica watch is equipped with a blue fabric strap and uses a practical easy replacement system (EasX-CHANGE®). The strap can be easily changed with the push of a button, no tools required.
