What is a replica?
A replica is an exact and close design of the original concerning its shape and appearance. Replica IWC watches are close resemblance of the original IWC watches but are available in different prices ranging from low to high depending upon the quality of the replica produced and available in the market for sale. Replica watches might also be second hand used watches which still have that new model feeling and sensation and is sold at the same value or lesser amount in the market. These are not sold by any authorised IWC watch dealers and are not available in any IWC stores. Replicas of luxury timepieces can be distinguished with the proper knowledge of the shape and design of the timepiece. There are ways to spot the difference between a fake and original IWC watch under close observation and inquiry.
How to spot a replica IWC watch?
Replica IWC watches can be found in the market but spotting the difference requires a close observation on the grounds like diameter of the dial, position of the company name, crown head diameter, colour of the design, size of the hour and minute hand, dimensions of the date window, font on sub dial, width of the lugs, missing of few brandings and sub dialspacing. Cheap replicas such as the quartz ones have problems reproducing this layout. Also the hour marks and the minute marks are misaligned and improper. The IWC Mark VI Automatic can be distinguished from its duplicate ones with some proper investigation. For example, the hour numbers are misaligned and there is different fonts for hour marks. The Mark VI Pilots watch is specifically designed to uphold traditions and functionality presented by IWC watches. It is the ultimate everyday watch series which surpasses the barriers of functionality and efficiency and has an immense popularity among watch collectors and enthusiasts.
The IWC Big Pilot has a ceramic or titanium case unlike the steel case presented in its replica models. Sub dials of replica models are small and narrow and font is different from the original. Date window size is rather small and is close to the number 7. The Big Pilot has the automatic functionality and is self-winding in its features. It has a power reserve of 7 days and has a soft iron inner case which protects movement against magnetic fields.
