Actually I have introduced two Top Gun replica watches on my blog, they are IW388002 and Top Gun 5019, each of them is made by a big famous factory and has a great quality. Here I am going to bring another Top Gun watch, it is the replica of latest IWC model published in 2016 SIHH. Compared with the two Top Gun replicas I posted before, this one was added Chronograph function, under the military appearance, the watch becomes more practical. The biggest advantage is it uses a bold and striking blue color on the dial. About this model, the factory made two versions, blue and green, please see the photos above.
Fully made of black ceramic, the case is brushed, it is a big watch, bigger than Submariner because the case diameter is 46mm. The crown and chrono pushers are Titanium made, so is the solid case back, which has a classic TOP GUN logo. Seeing from the side, the case has an obvious arc, especially the lugs, so it could fit your hand well when contacting with your wrist. The engraving details on crown are delicate, you can see every letter on it clearly. Real ceramic makes the replica watch feel a little heavy, and the brushed finish will let you feel its high quality texture more well.
Blue markers and hands form a sharp contrast to black dial color. Please notice that not all hour markers are luminous, only the markers at 3, 6, 9 and 12 are applied SuperLume C1 luminescence, so are hour and minte hands. There are two small dials, the one at 6 o’clock is for small seconds display, while the top one at 12 is for 60-minute chronograph. Central second-chronograph hand is striking, it is black but has a white tip and flight end. The date wheel in fan-shaped displayed at 3 has white font in black background, this also increases its readability.
Finally it comes to the band I favor most, the band is made of nylon on outside, while the inner side is made of genuine black leather and has IWC logo. The keepers on the band are all fabric. The band design guarantees a good wearing comfort on the side contacting with your skin, while its nylon outlook also adds points to military feeling to the whole watch.
Ok, here is the lastest news coming from the market, two top grade Pilots replicas, on Sunday, I will bring you guys another great review.
