New IWC Big Pilot’s Heritage Replica Watches

One For The Road: The IWC Replica in an AMG Roadster

Most watches with "plongeur" used instead of diver seem to interest me. Dive watch made for Superbike champ? I can handle it. The 48mm wide titanium C-Type watch is a good looker, unique among the hard-to-fine quasi luxury dive watch crown. It is also water resistant to 300 meters. This special version has an all carbon fiber dial and a subsidiary seconds dial with a ring around it in the shape of a disc brake rotor (kind of cool). Ben's competition number 11 takes center stage on the watch dial - pushing the Paul Picot logo into a smaller space located inside of the subsidiary seconds dial.

OK, so enough about the making of the book, is it worth checking out? That is a good question, because it isn’t exactly cheap. While you get a beautiful, useful, and heavy tome, the IWC history book costs about 250 Swiss Francs. To be honest I was skeptical at first. It is easy to put in a ton of pictures, and dress up text with glossy pages and a fancy publishing job. That isn’t the case here. What impressed me most about the book was the organization. Each major watch collection has its own section. So let’s say you are interested in the Aquatimer. IWC dive watches have an entire section complete with history, technology, and a review of many models — both modern and historic. It gives people a way to feel much more connected to watches they may have, as well as learn about potential collections they are interested in.

This winder is quiet! It sat a few feet away from me by my desk and I couldn't hear it at all. The output takes 10 minutes to make a complete rotation. That means the watch will slowly rotate clockwise for five minutes and then will swing back for forth a bit and then sit still for five minutes until the motor catches the pin on the holder and starts moving it again.

IWC Replica 8-Day Power Limited Edition Watch Hands-On

The little "SMT" indicator on the dial is for turning on and off day light saving time by the way. The other area is part of the manual sync functions for the atomic clock synchronization. Otherwise the dials are pretty clean, and with the large hand and applied hour numerals (both coated with luminant) this is a very legible, sensible looking high-function timepiece!

At its core, the Eco-Drive Dome watch has a Citizen light-powered Eco-Drive quartz movement that is atomic clock radio controlled (not sure how many bands, I would guess 5-6). Functions include the time, date, 1/5 of a second chronograph, alarm, world time indicator plus GMT time indication, and a power reserve indicator for the battery. The fun is all in the design and the case. Strap is a polyurethane black that is like rubber and uses a push-button butterfly clasp. Probably fine, but I hate straps like this where you have to physically cut it to size.

Marvin M014 Watch Review Wrist Time Reviews

The inevitable comparison people are going to make to a watch like this (especially the white and black one) is to Star Wars (storm troopers). That is the easy answer, and unfair given that the watch is Japanese. I see it more as a statement on types of organic looking anime characters and robots that have more curves than sharp angles. The skeletonized/open dial is not only trendy, but a comparison to the exposed robotics and electronics that many beloved anime mechanical creations are known to exhibit, from time to time. For comic style technologists, it isn't just the theme which is interesting, it is the plausible form that fantasy technology takes, which is so intriguing.  So to compliment the Citizen Eco-Dive Dome watch, I am placing an image of the Guyver, as well as robot character from Ghost in the Shell called Tachikoma.

The 1901 movement has some decoration on it, including forms of Geneva stripes, the blued screws and polished bridges. Very nice for the price, and I think most people who like the watch will be OK with the choice of movement. Back to the dial, I like that Techne placed different hands for the subsidiary seconds dial and the chronograph minutes dial.

For those stateside, the year 1929 holds dark memories of the disastrous plunge of the U.S. stock market. However, across the world in the Swiss workshops of Jaeger LeCoultre, the year 1929 is a cause for celebration: it marks the birthday of the iconic Calibre 101.

IWC Watches @ SIHH 2010 Shows & Events

You do grow increasingly accustomed to reading the time under the screwed on metal frame over the white dials with the perfect mixture of style and operational succinctness. The black hour disc with its Marvin style font is a touch that I appreciate. Other little features such as the comfy strap and gently curved case make M014 watch a lot easier to tote around than its novel nature might suggest. Price is about ,000.

High Quality Replica Watches

Then a few years ago the Swatch Group wiggled its way in deeper to Tiffany & Co.'s watch making arm. Swatch Group became a licensee of the Tiffany & Co. name, and would make and design their watches (probably with some approval rights from Tiffany & Co.). Although Tiffany & Co. made some nice watches prior to this relationship, I understand that they had issues with supply, service, customer service, and other issues relating to the production and service side of the watches. That and the fact that only a handful of key Tiffany & Co. employees knew anything about watches. They rest of their staff in stores were clueless.

The design of the case makes is such that you can only comfortably turn the bezel but twisting it from the sides. I believe that this is a security mechanism to prevent erroneous turning of the bezel. The bezel has a nice hint of gloss that contrasts with the matte dial, while the very slightly glossy yellow flange ring is an intermediate texture between the dial and the bezel.

It is no surprise that the movement is a Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 chronograph automatic. The movement is nicely decorated with a few polishes such as perlage on the plate and concentric circular stripes on the signed rotor. Maurice de Mauriac also uses blue steel screws, and I think you can also order titanium screws. If you want, they will also use a solid gold rotor for extra money.
