At Watches and Wonders 2021, IWC replica did what it usually does and focuses on one collection for the bulk of its releases: 2021 was devoted to the Big Pilot’s Watch. Inarguably the most popular and widely known collection by IWC, the best Swiss fake IWC Big Pilot’s Watch is the perfect place to try out a new idea like this innovative shock absorber concept.
The main focus of the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Shock Absorber XPL replica for men is the technology behind the shock absorber, so the watch itself is a simple, three-hand, time-only piece with an ultra-clean dial and generally restrained aesthetic minimizing unnecessary distraction.
The dial (and therefore the movement) appears to float in the center of the case with an open portion around the edge allowing a clear view into the movement support structure that has been carefully designed to protect the watch against incredibly violent shocks.
The dial, movement ring, case, and strap are all monochrome black, inspired by stealth aircraft, with light grey printing on the dial and small hour markers at the case edge providing the only deviation from black aside from the shock absorber component.
That 44 mm IWC copy watch is a bright gold color that almost glows from within the case as it beckons you to look inside. Interestingly, due to the specific geometric requirements of the design, the shock absorber creates an almost square profile to frame the dial as if on an old television screen. The visual is striking to say the least, but no matter how it looks the way it functions is its raison d’être.
