The main difference between the best fake IWC “Le Petit Prince” and “Antoine de Saint Exupéry” collections is the dial colour: “Le Petit Prince” models have blue dials, and “Antoine de Saint Exupéry” watches have brown or tobacco-coloured dials. It’s also true that there are more replica watches online uk and complications in the “Le Petit Prince” Big Pilot’s Watch line-up, including a Perpetual Calendar, a Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon, an Annual Calendar and even a Constant-Force Tourbillon. Despite these complications, a chronograph was missing from the collection, and in 2021, high end fake IWC “Le Petit Prince” was rewarded with a manual-winding monopusher chronograph movement.
Swiss made fake IWC’s first 55mm Big Pilot’s Watch of 1940 (ref. 1W431), aka a Beobachtungsuhror a B-Urh observation watch, was the muse behind the Big Pilot’s Watch. The enormous 55mm case of the B-Urh was designed to accommodate large pocket watch movements, which in turn were protected by an iron core to counter magnetism. To assist pilots in freezing cockpit conditions, the large diamond-shaped crown could be manipulated with gloves, and a long strap with rivets allowed pilots to secure the top quality replica IWC over the cuffs of their leather jackets. Legibility was enhanced with large Arabic numerals and the orientation triangle at 12 o’clock flanked by two dots. Referred to as the “Grosse Fliegeruhr” or cheap replica IWC Big Pilot’s Watch, the design features of this robust military tool watch left their mark on the modern version of the watch released by IWC in 2002, known to collectors as ref. 5002.
As you can imagine, incorporating two chronograph pushers on the already gigantic case of the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch replica for men was an issue that concerned IWC’s designers. Not only would they look pretty ridiculous flanking the large crown, but they could also lead to confusion with AAA fake IWC’s other line-up of Pilot chronographs. The solution was a monopusher chronograph movement, and luckily, IWC already had the manual-winding calibre 59360 one in stock first used inside the Portofino Monopusher of 2014.
THE “ANTOINE DE SAINT EXUPÉRY” TOUCH
Not only was Saint-Exupéry a poet and author, but he was also an aviator and participated in flying reconnaissance missions for the French Air Force until his mysterious disappearance on a mission over occupied France in 1944. Linking the 1:1 replica IWC UK to the legendary author and aviator, the colour of the tobacco brown dial is taken from the flight suits worn by the Saint-Exupéry. With its sunray-brushed finishing, the warm glow of the brown dial looks very handsome indeed in the rose gold case. The vertical layout of the counters gives the watch a pleasing symmetry with a recessed and snailed 60-minute totaliser at noon and small seconds at 6 o’clock.
The 5N rose gold case, with brushed flanks and a touch of polish on the bezel, crown and caseback, shares the same specifications as the “Le Petit Prince” IWC replica for sale UK with a diameter of 46.2mm and a height of 14.6mm. The large conical fluted crown houses the pusher for the chronograph that can be started, stopped and reset to zero. User-friendly and practical, the stopwatch function displays elapsed times of up to one hour (60-min) on the sub-dial at noon. The large rose gold-plated Arabic numerals of the best super clone watches are applied to the dial and treated with luminescent material along with the triangle and two dots at noon and the hour markers at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. Divided into five-second intervals, the white peripheral track stands out vividly against the brown dial. The propeller-style hands, with thin tips, are plated in rose gold and filled with lume, like the shorter hands on the two sub-dials. Finally, there is a rectangular date window at 3 o’clock with a white background to match the markings on the dial and black numerals.
The brown calfskin strap with white stitching and rivets (width 20mm) underscores the pilot theme perfectly. The advantage of a leather strap over a bracelet is that you can admire the movement of a Swiss fake watch.
