IWC Replica Watches have been some of the best pilot watches that are priced modestly compared to their more elaborate in-house “Big Pilot” watches that go well into the five-figures.
Rather than just making some dial changes and calling it a day, IWC was considerate of proportionality and reduced the case size just 1mm down to 40mm Replica Watches. It’s a small difference, but when a case doesn’t match its dial, the difference is noticeable. Case thickness is 11mm, by the way. When you flip the watch over, the steel caseback shows that plane insignia that enthusiasts know well.
Some other minor changes to the case include bringing back the numerals indicating 6 and 9 o’clock and the two dots flanking either side of the triangle at 12 o’clock. Pilot watches can be outrageously sized, and I’m fairly certain IWC Copy Watches also released a 55mm wide “heritage” Big Pilot watch in 2016. While 40mm isn’t tiny, the inherent thin bezel that comes with pilot watches and the 50mm lug to lug width has the piece wear bigger than most other pieces this size.
Legibility and ease of reading are the defining factors a pilot watch has to possess, and the IWC Mark XVIII Replica Watches excels. Admittedly, the white dial version with white hands suffers a bit when compared to the black dial model which allows the benefit of contrasting monochromatic colors with its white hands.
Like most of Cartier Replica Watches collections the Drive comes in a range of models, including both this elegant two-hand “Extra-Flat” model and a Drive Tourbillon.
Originally released only in 18k pink or white gold, Cartier now offers the Drive Extra-Flat in steel as well as 18k Yellow Gold Replica Watches for 2018.To put things in perspective, the steel version of the Drive Extra-Flat is approximately one third the cost of a gold-cased version. It also happens to look almost identical to the 18k white gold version of the Drive Extra-Flat that was released as a limited edition.
Aside from a precious metal case, the only other small detail “missing” in the steel version of the Drive Extra-Flat is the material of the blue cabochon in the crown. Cartier Fake Watches uses synthetic sapphire for the blue cabochon on the Drive models in gold, and the steel versions get a blue spinel cabochon.
To put the size into perspective, the “standard” Drive De Cartier watch with the time, subsidiary seconds dial, date, and an also in-house made automatic movement is 11.25mm thick & 41mm wide drive de cartier copy watch. Both are comfortable and really wearable, but in my opinion the Drive currently works best in this slimmed down and minimalized two-hand “Extra-Flat” variant.
The shapely cushion case of the Drive flows into an elegant and simple dial that has just two hands for the hours and minutes.The Silver Dial Cartier Replica-colored with a light sunburst finishing and black printed Roman numeral hour markers. A nice detail is the double recessed row of lines in the middle of the dial, which mimic the case shape and that frame the minute marker track.
