Now, more and more brands from Swiss watches industry are willing to use new innovative materials, forged carbon, bronze and even aluminum are used in the manufacturing of their watches. I remembered that there was one IWC Pilot watch made of aluminum in our market in 2017. Today, I will introduce another IWC Pilot watch that is made of new material, which is bronze. Yes, IWC is absolutely not the first brand watch that adopts bronze material in their watch making, actually Panerai has already published one Luminor Submersible watch before that is made of bronze, which is PAM 382, and it is sold very well. Now, in our replica watch industry, the Panerai PAM 382 Bronzo replica from KW factory is still on hot sale. Today, the replica IWC Pilot Spitfire Bronze watch I am going to introduce is made by XF factory, the watch is really a novelty and the factory offers extra ketchup sauce packet and eraser for more fun when you wear the watch.
The case is 39mm in diameter, it is measured to be 10mm in thickness. The case is made of bronze that is fully brushed. The case back is in micro-sandblasted finish, there is a spitfire airplane logo on the center of the back. The case could be oxidized after long-time wearing, but the ketchup sauce offered by the factory could help you to clean up the oxidation, and making the bronze case look new and fresh. That’s the fun a bronze watch could bring to us.
The green dial is a perfect match for the bronze case. In all bronze watches I have ever seen, they all have green dial. The bar-shaped hour markers at 3, 6 and 9 as well as the iconic Pilot’s triangle mark at 12 o’clock are all applied with luminous material, whose color is very close to the bronze tone of the case. Central hour and minute hands have rose gold edge and are filled with white luminescence on the center.
Brown leather strap perfectly fits the bronze case and green dial. The band is made of genuine calf leather and has white hand stitching. The buckle is also made of bronze and fully brushed. It looks like only brown leather band is the best fit for this bronze watch, black leather band will not look harmonious on this watch.
Movement: Asia ETA 2824-2 Automatic
Case: 39mm*10mm, Made of Bronze, Brushed
Crystal: Sapphire with AR Coating
Dial: Green with Green Superlumed Hour Markers and Hands
Bracelet: Brown Leather Strap with Tang Buckle

Several days ago, I posted an article on my blog about the top five best-selling replica Rolex watches, yes, some of them attracted a lot of my readers, since the end of 2018, a lot of factories started to make the ultimate 1:1 replica Rolex with genuine watch materials and super clone movement, you have to admit that the watch-making technology has become more and more mature. Today, I want to give a review on the best-selling replica IWC watches, a top six watches in that list. These are the best of best, if you like IWC, do not miss them.
ZF Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve
Both ZF and YL factories make replicas of IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve. ZF makes the best one. Now, the latest version of Portuguese 7 Days has come to be V5. It has a lot of options in dial and leather strap color. However, the best-selling is this one with white dial, blue hands and blue leather strap. Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve is popular because every man who wants one dress watch will think about it. The replica is perfectly made, with a real power reserve indicator, although the power reserve capacity can not achieve 7 days, it has already been able to 3 days. The blue steel hands and hour markers look very elegant. ZF is the factory that developed a super clone IWC 52010 movement for this watch.
2. ZF Big Pilot Le Petit Prince IW500908
First, once the Le Petit Prince being unveiled, it was sold much better than any other Big Pilot models. ZF makes the best Pilot Le Petit Prince replica watch. The Le Petit Prince Pilot watch with blue dial is the best-selling model, with a reference number IW500908. It is sold very well, first, the watch is big, 46mm in case diameter, second, solid case back has a Le Petit Prince engraving, the case back is solid, so people can not tell if it is a fake watch from the movement. However, from dial details and case finish, it is very hard for a person to identity, even a watch expert. The sunburst blue dial ZF made is the dial that looks closest to genuine. The replica also features a sapphire crystal with blue AR Coating that is the same as genuine.
3. ZF Portuguese Chrono IW371446
Portuguese Chrono is one of the most popular Chronograph watches, from IWC, Portuguese Chrono is also considered to be a dress watch that is highly popular in watch fans. Between Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve and Portuguese Chrono, you must choose one as your first IWC watch. Like the two watches above, the best replica IWC Portuguese Chrono watch is also made by ZF. It has a lot of models, here I make a basic review on the one with white dial, blue markers and blue leather strap. The newest edition of this replica from ZF is V3. The replica is made so well, it has a polished case that has the same thickness as genuine. The clone 79350 movement is independently developed by ZF factory, it offers the real chronograph function. There are many real features you can find on this replica, where you maybe saw on genuine watches before.
4. V6F Aquatimer Chrono IW376803
Aquatimer is the diver’s watch series of IWC. Now each Swiss brand has developed their diver’s watch model. The Aquatimer was sold very well before, but facing the high competition with Rolex’s Submariner and Panerai, many people are not willing to choose IWC Aquatimer as their first diving watch. However, this Aquatimer IW376803 from V6 factory is still a very good quality watch. With good case finish and stable Asia Chronograph movement, I think this full stainless steel watch should be in this top list.
5. MKS Mark XVIII IW327001
Before the release of Mark XVIII, the best-selling IWC watch is Mark XVI. However, the Mark XVI replica from MK factory has been out of stock for a long time. So I put this Mark XVIII IW327001 in this list. The latest version of this replica is V2. This watch looks extremely simple and may be the first choice for many beginners who want to choose a IWC watch as a start. The replica has a high stability because of the genuine Japanese movement Miyota 9015 inside, black dial features white Arabic numeral hour markers that are applied with Swiss lume, the whole watch has a good readability. Black leather strap is also a perfect match for this one. Between Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve and this Mark XVIII IW327001, I recommend you Mark XVIII.
6. ZF Pilot Chrono IW377709
Both V6 and ZF make this replica, but I recommend you buy from ZF. It uses a more reliable Asia Valjoux 7750 movement that runs seconds at 9 o’clock. Like Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve and Mark XVIII, this Pilot Chrono also has a very low repairing rate. The case finish is a big selling point of the replica watch, polished bezel is highly contrasting with the brushed case. Black dial has three small dials, the one at 9 o’clock features a small red hand, which is very eye-catching. The big triangle mark at 12 o’clock is an iconic feature of IWC Pilot. Too many elements on this 43mm dial, but they do not look crowded.
In my opinion, the six watches above are the best in our market, maybe they are too expensive for you, maybe you also have a top list in your mind, but it is absolutely more cost-efficient to select a replica watch that can last for years.
IWC Portuguese has a lot of classic models, for example Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve and Portuguese Chrono, both watches are not only sold very well in genuine watch market, but also have become the mostly replicated models in our fake watches industry. Factories like ZF and YL have always been researching on how to make the best replica IWC Portuguese 7 Days that look 100% the same as genuine, they continuously improved and released the higher edition. So, if you want to buy the best IWC Portuguese replica watch, please go with ZF factory.
Last week, ZF published another type of IWC Portuguese Chrono replica watch, different from previous editions, this Portuguese Chrono only has two small dials. Now, follow my review to get a full understand of this replica watch. In whole appearance, the IWC Portuguese looks very elegant, full stainless steel, white dial, blue steel hands and markers, black leather strap, these elements distribute the elegance of the watch to the maxmium.
The case is 42mm in diameter, it is polished, round bezel is smoothly polished, when you check the case from side, you will find the whole case has a perfect streamlined shape, the edge of the case is polished, while the case side is brushed. Two chronograph buttons and crown on the right side are polished, which form a high contrast with the brushed right case side. Case back uses transparent sapphire crystal, you can appreciate the working mechanism inside closely.
The dial is in white color. Hour markers and hands are in blued steel. Small second hand is running on the subdial at 6 o’clock. There are two concentric circles at 12 o’clock, the inner small dial is for 12-hour chronograph display, the outer circle is 60-minute chronograph counter. Two subdials at 6 and 12 are not flat, they are sunken from the main dial. Compared with previous Portuguese Chronograph watches, this one has track-style minutes scales, the whole dial layout is also a little different. However, the dial readability is not affected by these changes.
One pair of black leather straps is equipped. The band is made of genuine calfskin leather imported from Italy, its surface has embossed croc prints that make the the whole band have a good texture, it indeed has a high quality texture and could be worn for at least three years. The hand stitching is also in black, which is perfectly integrated into this band.
The replica is installed with an Asian Valjoux 7750 automatic movement, while ZF factory made some decoration on the auto rotor and plates, to make it look like genuine IWC Cal. 89361. Fortunately the case back is see-through crystal, you can see the beautiful golden seals on the skeleton rotor, the finish on movement plate and polishing are in top level. The golden balance wheel features an original shock absorber, regulator for inaccuracy adjustment works the same way as genuine movement.
A man should own more than one timepiece, while an IWC Portuguese is a dress watch necessary for them. To go for any formal occasions with your shirt or business suits, Portuguese will be a perfect match. By the way, do not ask me the websites of these factories include Noob, ZF, BP, they do not open websites selling replica watches online.
Diver’s watches are favorites of many people. Nowadays, each Swiss brand has developed their diver’s watch series, especially those famous brands like Rolex, Panerai, IWC, Omega, etc. They all have diver’s watches for professionals. Aquatimer is from IWC, it is designed for professional divers, the watch has a great water resistant depth. Today, I am going to introduce a replica IWC Aquatimer watch, which is made by Noob factory. The replica is in high quality like other watches made by Noob. GST Aquatimer special edition is different from regular Aquatimer that has a bi-color bezel. While this IWC GST Aquatimer watch look more tough and stronger. Compared with other diver’s watches like Submariner, Audemars Piguet Diver and Omega Planet Ocean, this IWC GST Aquatimer looks more common, while is more likely to be accepted by us.
The replica is 38mm in case diameter, and the case is 12.5mm thick. It is made of solid 316L stainless steel, the case is brushed very well, it does not have that big case like Submariner, so the watch is also very suitable for people with thin wrist. The bezel is special, first, diving marks are not deeply engraved, they are raised from the bezel and in silver tone. Second, there are two rows of flutes around the bezel, so you will have a perfect experience when rotating the bezel. Bezel pearl is filled with luminous material, it is not domed, it is flat. Crown does not have protecting guards, so it will be easier for you to rotate to adjust time and date.
The replica IWC GST Aquatimer does not have too much spot on the dial. Bar-shaped hour markers are filled with Swiss Lume, silver markers with white lume are very obvious on black dial background. When you check the dial in dark condition, markers and hands will emit green light. By the way, a small date window is positioned at 3 o’clock. White date font is clearly readable in black background.
The bracelet is my favorite part. Not only it is made of solid stainless steel, but it also has links that are tightly connected. There is only little gap between each link. Such one separate bracelet is sold at an expensive price. On the buckle, the lettering “IWC” is deeply engraved and is matt finished. Overall, this is a high end 1:1 replica watch and sold at a very reasonable price.
IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve is a great dress watch, except Submariner, it is the watch which our factories are mostly likely to replicate. Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve is loved by a lot of watch fans and there are a lot of versions that have ever appeared in our market. From the earliest version with false power reserve, to the ultimate version with real 7-day power reserve ability, we all witnessed the development of this IWC replica watch. At the beginning, there was only one small factory that replicated this Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve, although the replica at that time was not perfect, it still created a sales miracle, the replica Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve was out of stock for a long time. Today, more than five different factories manufactured this watch, among them, the best one is from Z factory, which we call it ZF version. Actually the Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve replica made by other factories are also fine, but the one made by Z factory is closest to genuine, we can still see Z factory continued to improve this replica and released the latest version, now the latest version of IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve replica is ZF V5, which is the one I am going to give a review. Let’s begin.
The reference number of this IWC Portuguese is IW500704, whose case is made of 316L stainless steel and plated with 18K rose gold, case is measured to be 42mm in diameter and 14mm thick. Bezel, case, case back construction, polishing and satin finish processing are the same as genuine. The round bezel and case are forged into one piece. See from the side, the case is not only has the same thickness as genuine, but also the factory made a lot of efforet in brushing the case side, which looks perfect. Case edges and corners have been finely polished according to the original, so they feel round and smooth, no metal burr feeling when wearing on hand. Crown has the same size and structure, the letter engravings are correct in thickness. Case back also has right configuration, first, each replica has an unique reference engraved, second, the transparent crystal uses sapphire and is screwed down.
The dial of the replica IWC is black, Arabic hour markers and hands are all plated with 18K rose gold like case. Small second hand is working on subdial at 9 o’clock, the small hand on 3:00 subdial is indicating remaining power reserve.
About movement, ZF made a delicate polishing on paltes, there are fish scale patterns and Geneva Stripes, ruby and golden engravings. It is a clone Cal. 52010 movement based on a Chinese Automatic movement. The power reserve could be up to four and half a day, this is already amazing. You know, among all high quality replica watches, the most outstanding clone P.3000 only has 5-day power reserve ability. At the same time, in stability, clone Cal. 52010 also fully meets the standard of an outstanding movement. Although it is a see-through case back design, you do not need to worry it could be spotted as a fake movement. The following are more detailed specification of the replica.
Movement: Super Copy IWC 52010 Automatic, 23 Jewels, Platinum Plated Plate and Auto Rotor
Functions: Hours, Minutes, Small Seconds, Date, Power Reserve
Case: 18K Rose Gold Plated 316L Stainless Steel, 42mm*14mm
Crystal: Sapphire, Scratch-Proof with AR Coating
Band: Black Leather Strap with Deployant Clasp
Water Resistant: 50m
IWC makes superior quality watches, maybe in most time the material and technolgoy used by IWC watch are more advanced than other brands, so that IWC could develop Portuguese watch series, which has been famous for its highly complicated functions. Maybe Portuguese is not the most popular IWC model because modern people like sports watches more, so their Pilots watches are selling well among our watch fans. However, for some officially formal occasions such as formal organization and meetings, a Portuguese watch is necessary, because such type of dress watch with business suits will make a man look more mature, this is also the way you show respect to your business partners. So, preparing an IWC Portuguese at home for special usage is really essential.
Today, the watch I will discuss is a replica IWC that is made by YL factory, not ZF. Like genuine, the replica has a long power reserve, it is almost 120 hours, previous models do not have such long power reserve. The replica is equipped with a clone Cal. 52850, the factory spent three years to research and develop this movement, which is the only movement in our market that has achieved real annual calendar function. About the details on this clone movement, the plates decoration, thickness, size and construction are much closer to genuine IWC 52850 Caliber.
The case is made of 316L stainless steel that is plated with 18K rose gold, the gold coating is thick up to 5 mils, it will never fade. Case is 44.2mm in diameter and the crystal back shows inner beauty of the cool movement mechanism.
White dial looks big and easy for the wearer to read time. There are two subdials, the one at 9 o’clock is for small seconds, the other one at 3 is 7-day power reserve indicator, the small hand is working, not false. On the top, there are three small windows, which show month, date and week separately.
About its brown leather band, the brown color is exactly in line with rose gold case, perfectly matches. Besides, have you noticed the unique patterns on the band, yes, the strap is made of genuine alligator leather, which is more durable and soft to wear.
At last, let’s see the watch specification:
Movement: Clone Cal. 52850 with Hours, Minutes, Small Seconds, Power Reserve and Annual Calendar Functions
Case: 44.2mm in Diameter, 18K Rose Gold
Crystal: Sapphire, Scratch-proof
Band: Brown Alligator Leather
Water Resistant: 30m
IWC Mark series is one of the best replicated watches in market, it is made by several big factories like ZF, MK and V6. Among these three factories, MK makes the best IWC Mark replica. However, with the rapid development of watch-making technology, these factories learn technique from each other, so the difference of replica watch made by each factory is getting smaller and smaller. Like this IWC Mark XVII watch, it is a Le Petit Prince special edition, actually MK factory published one before, the quality is good, now this one is made by V6 factory, which has been very famous for manufacturing good quality PAMs. Mark XVII Le Petit Prince is like a blue wizard in the all dark forest, genuine watch is too expensive while such so simple watch could be made 100% the same as genuine, so why not spend less on a high quality replica, I guarantee the sales person in a boutique is not able to identify it is a replica. By the way, MK version is much more expensive because it is equipped with a genuine ETA 2892, while this one made by V6 features an Asian clone ETA 2892 movement, but the accuracy and stability are still guaranteed I promise, V6 also offers a real ETA 2892 option, will need extra 108 usd.
The replica looks harmonious in whole appearance. I like simple watch, the black leather band, steel case, blue dial, all give me a fresh and comfortalbe feeling. First, the brushed stainless steel case is measured to be 41mm in diameter, this case size has already been very suitable for men who like large-size watches. The case is molded from one piece of stainless steel, it is molded according to genuine case because the factory has bought real IWC Mark XVII Le Petit Prince to research. 1:1 case construction, the diameter, thickness, the length between lugs and arc design are all perfect. On case back, the Le Petit Prince patterns and lettering engravings look very elegant. The back design is screwed down with gasket to guarantee the best water resistance.
The blue dial is really amazing. A very elegant design I like, three hand with luminous hour and minute hands, second hand features a shooting star end, other Mark series watches do not have this feature. The big triangle at 12 o’clock is the icon of IWC Mark series. White markers on blue background make the dial highly readable. A fan-shaped date window at 3 o’clock has black date font in white background, the left white triangle is pointing at current date. Anyway, I like this type of dial because no complicated decoration, it is easy for the factory to replicate a simple dial, so the replica will look closer to genuine watch.
About the band, it is brown, not black or grey. It is made of genuine calf leather, soft and durable. The buckle really shows the improvement of watch-making technology. It uses brushing and polishing, every corner is polished well and gives a very angular feeling. The “IWC” lettering is deeply engraved. In a word, from outside case to inner mechanism, the replica IWC is good a high end replica that will be perfectly suitable for men who need a timer in formal occasions. By the way, the steel bracelet is also available.
I originally do not want to introduce this watch, because I have done a review of this replica IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve here, however, it is one of the best-selling dress watches and there are a lot of factory manufacturing it, there are also a lot of good versions, many factories have continuously upgraded the features of this watch, so I decided to give a review of it again, the one I will talk here is made by Z factory, it is currently the best version. Actually the first replica watch I sold out is an IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve white dial with blue hands, however, the previous replicas of this watch do not have real power reserve function, the small second is fixed, until Z factory released this one that owns a working power reserve indicator. Here I will give a basic review of this replica and tell you the two biggest improvement Z factory has made on the watch.
The case is 42mm in diameter, the round polished bezel is my favorite style, the bezel makes the dial look larger than it should be, so every detail on the dial is very clear and the wearer can get exact time just with a glance. Ivory white dial features blue steel hands and hour markers, although these markers on the dial are not very large, they really look very elegant, the small dial at 9 o’clock is for display of small seconds, the corresponding 3:00 subdial is for display of power reserve, please remember the power reserve indicator on this replica is real, it is also indicating the remaining energy of the watch. The factory said the replica can continuously work for 120 hours without winding, that is 5 days. You can also see the movement, it is a super clone 51011 calibre that is 1:1 replicated from genuine movement, with every movement plate and decoration the same as genuine, the clone 51011 has the same quality level as super clone 3135 used on Rolex replicas.
It is the dress watch which I am mostly in love with, because its dial is big enough and very good for the wearer to read time clearly, the blue hands and markers are also very beautiful, this common IWC watch offers you any necessary functions which a formal watch should have, genuine calf leather strap is also very comfortable to wear.
The watch that I want to share with you is a replica IWC Big Pilot, which is a new model that IWC just released. There is no reference number for this watch so far as it is new arrival. And, it will be very appreciated if you would like to share your knowledge and comments on this watch with me. We have been seen so many excellent IWC replicas in the market, such as Portuguese series, Portofino, Big Pilot chronograph, etc. Every replica IWC timepiece is masterpiece.
For the new watch models released recently, there is not so many surprising ones, but when I seen this IWC Big Pilot it felt like seeing a lover who haven’t met for a very long time. It is surprised and happy from the button of my heart. I admit that I like beautiful things, when we buy a watch, we like its design and look, and I think this is the most important part. In my opinion, there is no difference to buy original or replica watches, because replica watch’s design and quality is the same. Mostly, we are always attracted by its appearance.
This is the first watch made of aviation aluminum I have seen, it is lighter than the normal stainless steel watch on weight. The main color is matte grey, and the dial is brass, very elegant and passionate design. While turn the dial around, I can see the metal texture and light from it. Meanwhile, the 47mm size is also popular among the young. The function is including hour, minute, sub-second and power display. It is driven by a special factory made IWC Cal.51111 movement. Besides, the needles and markers are superlumed, very convenient for reading the time in the dark.
Many IWC fans are dissatisfied the ordinary Big Pilot or Pilot Chronograph’s back case design. As a limited edition, this replica IWC Big Pilot engraving with its version logo and there are three flying aircrafts, and this is the main theme for its limited edition. The bracelet is made of grey nylon, and the clasp has IWC logo. Z factory cares every detail very well, I think this is why they can always made high-quality and amazing replicas for us.
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.
