Today, I will introduce another black guy that is full of military style, here I have given reviews on several replica military models such as Zenith Pilot, Omega 007 and Submariner 5517, this time, the IWC replica watch I am going to review is an authentic military pilot watch, its full black appearance just exactly proves this point. The watch is a high end clone of Top Gun 5019, the most unique place on this replica is that it features real ceramic case, wearing such a timepiece will make you look more tough.
First, the full ceramic case is moulded from one piece, this process needs higher watch-making technology and skilled watch masters to complete. Whether the size, lugs width or engravings, they are 1:1 replicated according to genuine. The black ceramic case has top-level brushing process, touch the case by hands, it gives you a genuine feeling.
The black dial extremely simple, with white hour markers and printing, the dial gives a high readability. There is a small subdial at 3 o’clock indicating 7 days power reserve, however, this function is faux on this replica, the small hand is fixed permanently. The central second hand has an unqie tip in white color, its another end is iconic Top Gun airplane logo in red. A small square date window is placed at 6. The replicas features a superlumed dial, which will gives you strong green light at night.
The last two things that make me love this replica IWC deeply are its special caseback engravings and nylon strap in black. All high end replica watches have good engravings on caseback and clasp, so is this one, you can check its “IWC” engraving on the clasp, it is deeply curved. The black nylon straps add more military favor to this replica, which makes it full of tough charm but absolutely a low-key timepiece active on your wrist.
