Taking home 55% of the vote was the great green dial fake IWC Pilot’s Chronograph. While all of the nominees were fantastic releases, Andrew’s choice of the IWC seemed to really resonate with you, the people, earning it the people’s choice award for best under 10K. There is a lot to like about the watch, and not just it’s groovy green sunburst dial. The 41mm case is more ergonomic and caters to a larger spectrum of buyers than the larger diameter references we have seen before.
It is also more versatile than ever, with an upgraded 100 metres of water-resistance and the choice between a stainless-steel bracelet and leather strap – both of which can be easily switched between with the new EasX-CHANGE quick release system. Personally I recommend buying the watch on the bracelet and the strap separately, this way you can take full advantage of the 100 metres of water-resistance on the bracelet and then swap to the classic leather while on land.
The IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph copy for men has also been upgraded internally. The new in-house column wheel chronograph IWC caliber, which IWC now proudly puts on full display, is well decorated and well regulated as well. Adjusted in five positions, you can expect reliable timekeeping while the column wheel architecture results in a smooth and crisp chronograph experience, a true joy to utilise. As for power reserve, the automatic movement can run for approximately 46 hours without a wind. It’s a very robust movement designed to be able to endure the shock of daily wear.
The brown leather strap fake IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph is available now via IWC boutiques and authorized dealers. Price: $6,500 USD on rubber/leather and $7,200 USD on the bracelet.
