First teased on the wrist of Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton at the Miami Grand Prix earlier this year, perfect replica IWC UK has finally confirmed the existence of the cheap fake IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar TOP GUN Lake Tahoe (ref. IW503008), releasing the impressive timepiece out into the wild as the latest watch to join their “Colors of TOP GUN” collection.
This new model takes the stark white ceramic case and black-and-white colour scheme of the 1:1 fake IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Edition “Lake Tahoe” (ref. IW389105), which was released at Watches & Wonders Geneva last year, and applies it to the Swiss watchmaker’s acclaimed Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar.
Why “Lake Tahoe”? Well, the stark white ceramic’s colour is inspired by white uniforms and the winter landscape around the eponymous lake. Located between California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe is a mountainous area that the pilots of the nearby TOPGUN flight school frequently fly over. It’s very thematic.
White ceramics are one of high quality replica IWC’s signature innovations. Imbuing strong colours into ceramics is exceptionally difficult, and it’s a field where IWC has been a particular pioneer. AAA quality fake IWC was experimenting with white ceramic as far back as the 1980s.
Of course, ceramic is extremely scratch-resistant and remarkably light, making it the perfect material for a pilot’s watch, especially one as big as the cheap fake IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar.
One of the most complicated top quality replica watches IWC produces, this 46.5mm behemoth features displays for the date, day and month; a four-digit year indicator, and perpetual moon phase for both Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
Its in-house 52615 movement, a modern take on legendary watchmaker Kurt Klaus’ groundbreaking perpetual calendar movement, is one of Swiss movement replica IWC’s most precise and innovative movements. Not only can it be entirely set via the crown, but if kept running continuously, it won’t need a watchmaker’s intervention to change it for a whole century. It also manages this whilst also boasting a 168-hour (i.e. a 7-day) power reserve… That’s pretty damn impressive.
Beyond that, we just like the way it looks. It’s a huge watch, and with that white ceramic case and white rubber strap, there’s a lot of white going on – it’s hard to miss. It might just be the most baller watch best fake IWC has ever come up with, from both an aesthetic as well as a technical perspective.
The UK IWC Big Pilot’s Watch replica for men will be available as of next month (July 2023) from IWC’s online boutique here.
