Usually seen in black with a utilitarian look, IWC today brings a cool and unprecedented racing theme to this piece, with the new Pilot’s Replica Watch Chronograph Edition Racing Green IW377726.
The IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph is a classic the brand’s collection, as the entry-level chronograph and a nice alternative to the large and expensive Big Pilot’s Replica Watch or a more masculine and slightly more complex option compared to the Mark XVIII.
The IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph is a 43mm stainless steel watch, with a mostly brushed case with polished details – crown, pushers, bezel, casebands. It is the modern evolution of the watches that re-launched the Flieger concept at IWC Replica, the modern icons that are the ref. 3706 and ref. 3711.
Powering this Pilot’s Watch Chronograph is the calibre IWC 79320, which is based on the Valjoux 7750 architecture – hence the typical 6-9-12 layout for the sub-counters. It is here presented in the day-date version, both shown in small apertures at 3 o’clock.
Instead of the usual matte finishing found on the black version, this Edition Racing Green has a slightly more elegant sunray-brushed pattern. The red small seconds hand is retained and the day-date discs are now white. Other than that, the Replica Watch is identical to its black sibling. It is worn on a brown pilot-style calfskin strap with steel pin buckle.
