The IWC Replica Da Vinci Automatic Moon Phase 36

If you’ve been following along for the past few months, you have probably heard about IWC Cheap Replica Watches re-inventing the Da Vinci collection as its big release at SIHH. Based on the original Da Vinci, first produced in 1986, this new series reflects the old case design but with a heavy focus on ladies’ pieces like the new Automatic Moon Phase 36 that you see here. It’s a new direction for the collection and one that is very much worth paying attention to.

Before I go into my thoughts on this watch, I want to preface this story with a pretty important caveat. I do not like the old Da Vinci Replica Watches. I never have. Sorry. BUT, I am always open to new things and am sometimes pleasantly surprised when I don’t let my preconceptions get the better of me. This is one of those instances.
There are six new Da Vinci models for this year: the Automatic 36, the Automatic 40, the Perpetual Calendar Chronograph, Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph, a special Chronograph Edition “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation,” and the watch we have here, the Automatic Moon Phase 36. They all incorporate a new and improved Cheap IWC Replica Da Vinci case shape with a similar aesthetic to the 1980s originals. The lugs are short and have an angled tear-drop shape, and are articulated, with the spring bars attached in between as usual. The watches come in red gold or steel, with or without diamonds, and with silvered, blue, or dark gray dials.

You guessed it, this watch measures 36mm in diameter with a thickness of 11.6mm. It is available in plain stainless steel, stainless steel with diamonds, and in red gold. The IWC Replica Watches stainless steel version that you see here, which is free of diamonds, has a really nice silver-plated dial with applied navy blue Arabic numerals. The numbers have a grea three-dimensional quality and look almost sculptural. The moonphase indicator sits in an aperture at 12 o’clock and is the star here without overpowering the rest of the watch.

One of my favorite things about this watch is that silvered dial. The way that it shimmers when you wear it, along with the perfectly placed moonphase aperture all lend to a well-balanced and appealing read. The applied Arabic numerals are hefty enough so that they cast a tiny little shadow, a rich detail that not all dials can brag about. Additionally, I really dig the IWC Replica recessed guilloché center ring – it’s a tiny, yet thoughtful detail that adds depth to the overall look of the watch.

The watch wears really nicely too. The lugs aren’t too long, so there is no overhang on my wrist, and it is definitely comfortable when you put it on. The case is 11.6mm thick, which at first didn’t seem like that much, but on the wrist it does wear a little heavy after a full day. Overall though, I still wouldn’t categorize this one as chunky or heavy. My only complaint about this Cheap IWC Replica is the strap. But you would think that because this watch is marketed to women the strap would be made for, you know, women. When I wear it fastened on the last hole it’s still too big, and I have a pretty average-sized wrist. It’s a little detail, but one that’s hard to ignore.

IWC Pilot’s Timezoner Chronograph Replica Watch Hands-On

Perhaps no brand is better known for their pilots’ watches than IWC. When establishing a brand as the king of a segment, one must provide frequent displays of power to assert dominance over subjects and challengers alike. Among a largely refreshed pilot lineup for SIHH 2016, we find a welcome and very cool spin on IWC’s Pilot’s Worldtimer, the Cheap IWC Replica that we got to see hands-on. Using a unique in-house movement with a connected bezel system, you can set and update the local time and its 24-hour display by turning the bezel. This is a rather entertaining, useful, and approachable feature on a watch designed to simplify the jump from one timezone to another.

Carrying the reference 3905, this automatic chronograph is 45mm wide with a steel case which, including the bezel, is some 16.5mm thick. With a solid caseback and an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, the IWC Pilot’s Timezoner Chronograph meets all of IWC’s requirements for a pilot’s watch and is water resistant to 60 meters.The IWC Pilot’s Timezoner Chronograph watch’s useful feature list is supported by IWC Replica Watches calibre 89760, a 4hz movement that offers 68 hours of power reserve, a date at three, hours (max: 12) and minutes recorded on the sub dial at twelve, and a jumping hour travel function. The IWC Pilot’s Timezoner Chronograph not only features a unique way of changing timezones, it also uses a somewhat strange worldtime/GMT display that links the local 12-hour hand with the 24-hour hand (the one with the red tip). So, unlike a Rolex GMT Master II, where the local hand and the GMT hand are independently set to track local and home time, the IWC Pilot’s Timezoner Chronograph Replica Watches additional hand is meant only to show 24-hour time in the timezone selected by the bezel.

So how does it actually function? The sprung bezel is captive, so it has to be depressed before it will spin. Press the bezel down and turn it in either direction to set the local and 24-hour hands backwards or forwards. If you cross the date line, the date will advance or retreat accordingly. With the watch set correctly, you can simply turn the bezel until your new local city is at twelve and the time will be updated to suit the new locale. Cities with daylight saving time have a small “s” position that will enable a summer setting to ensure the correct time is shown. The Replica IWC Watches UK entire process is done without affecting the movement’s accuracy or halting the progress of the seconds or minute hand.

I am a huge fan of GMT watches, and the IWC Pilot’s Timezoner Chronograph is one of the coolest iterations I’ve ever come across. While it’s hard to beat the functionality of a GMT chronograph, the IWC Pilot’s Timezoner Chronograph’s impressive bezel design is a noteworthy and welcome step forward in terms of simplicity and ergonomics.
