When compiling a list of pilot’s watches, you’d be foolish to not include some sort of best 1:1 replica IWC considering the brand’s history. Being the creators of the iconic Big Pilot, they deserve all the credit for shaping the category they get. Within the brand’s portfolio, you have ample choice between sizes, colors, complications, and materials.
The most iconic is without a doubt the UK fake IWC Big Pilot Paypal in 46,2mm size, but earlier this year IWC decided to create a watch with the copy IWC Big Pilot DNA, but in a slightly reduced size.
The AAA Swiss replica IWC Big Pilot Watch 43mm is most importantly a lot more wearable than its big brother. It still features a large, robust case with that signature diamond-shaped crown and a very clear and legible dial.
What it lacks though, is the oh-so-familiar 8-day power reserve indicator that purists regard as a must-have element on the dial. Despite this comment, the reduced size is friendlier for the wrist and perhaps a IWC Big Pilot replica for men better suited for everyday wear.
