Pilot is a popular series of IWC, and Pilot’s watch is loved by a lot of Swiss watch fans. IWC Pilot’s watch is divided into several branches, they are Mark series, Pilot, Spitfire and Big Pilot. Among them, Mark series and Big Pilot are most popular, while the Spitfire and Pilot chrono are also highly welcomed. I read some history of IWC before, it said that the design of Pilot’s watch got inspiration from the fighter in the Second World War. So I know why there is an airplane sculpture on the case back of some IWC Pilot’s watch, especially on the Spitfire. Today, the IWC Pilot watch I am going to introduce is a limited edition model, it says “150 Years” on case back, does this mean that this model is produced to commemorate the 150th anniversary of IWC Pilot’s Watch? Anyone who knows can tell me about this. The reference number is IW377725, it is limited 1000 pieces in quantity, while you can get this replica watch at any time, its stocks will last for a long time, Z factory offers us a big inventory. Yes, the replica IWC Pilot watch I am going to talk in the following article is made by Z factory, which also named ZF, some website wrote its name “ZF factory”, whatever, they are all correct names. If have ever read my articles, you will know ZF makes the best replicas of IWC, Tudor and some Panerai watches. Now, this Pilot Chrono 377725 is the latest addition to their big IWC replicas family.
The Pilot chrono watch has a large case measured to be 43mm in diameter. The case has a round polished bezel contrasting with the brushed case. The case is thick, up to 15mm. The crown and chronograph buttons are set on the right case side, two chronograph buttons are polished and they work the same way as those buttons of genuine watch. Case back is entirely brushed, while sandblasting finish on the center. There are delicate engravings on case back in correct depth. Although this replica has a full chronograph function, please do not operate the chronograph buttons too often. The replica has a thicker case than genuine, we hope ZF could reduce its thickness by modifying its movement inside.
The dial has a lot things worthy of talking. First it is about the high readability. White dial has thick black Arabic numeral hour markers, the minute markers are also in black color, it is very convenient for the wearer to catch time from the dial. The big triangle marker at 12 and hour markers at 3, 6 and 9 are applied with Swiss Superlume material, so in dark condition, you will find these four markers will emit a strong green light, this improves the dial readability. There are three working subdials, they are sunken from the main dial. Each small dial works well and features a blue hand. Among them, small seconds subdial is at 9 o’clock, 30-minute chronograph counter and 12-hour chronograph counter are positioned at 12 and 6 o’clock repectively. At 3 o’clock, next to the hour marker, there are two square windows, the left window is displaying current day, while the right window is showing date, both have black font. All hands on the white dial use blue color, not only eye-catching, but also give your eyes fresh outlook.
The movement is an Asia Valjoux 7750, which is based on a Shanghai chronograph movement. After being tested for almost ten years, this chronograph movement used in our replica watches are the most stable and reliable.
