Rounding out our list is one of the most surprisingly popular releases of 2021 thus far, fake IWC’s now-standard-production Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Blue Dial.
The new top quality IWC Big Pilots replica watch, which launched as part of the Watches & Wonders 2021 virtual event, represents the first time the Schaffhausen brand has added a standard-production version of its perpetual calendar to the flagship Big Pilot’s Watch series. Accompanying the model was a limited-edition “Mojave Desert” Top Gun edition of the watch (below).
The blue-dialed watches features a classical, 46.2-mm brushed steel case typical of the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch copy with blue dial, complete with an oversized diamond-style crown and secured to the wrist via a flieger-style, riveted leather strap. Beneath the sapphire crystal, the shiny sunray blue dial gives rise to a highly legible perpetual calendar configuration, all designed in accordance with classic Big Pilot style codes.
The self-winding caliber IWC 52615 beats inside the watch; its lack of a separate leap-year indication helps keep the face relatively clean and legible. As for its specs, the in-house-developed movement contains 54 jewels, beats at 28,800 vph, and maintains a seven-day (or 168-hour) power reserve; it is visible with its fine finishing behind a sapphire caseback.
Notably, the fake IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar for men is one of the most relatively cost-effective perpetual calendars on the market today, priced at $29,900, almost $30,000 less than the second-least expensive watch on this list, the titanium Bulgari.
