IWC Mens Replica have taken to the skies at SIHH 2016 – the place they’re most at home – with an entirely revamped Pilot’s line. Among the many models, the limited edition Big Pilot’s Annual Calendar Edition “Le Petit Prince” is the one that captured our attention. It’s an homage to one of the most-loved stories of the 20th century, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince. IWC combines his iconic character and his passion for aviation in this special IWC Big Pilot’s replica watch.

This is the fifth time that IWC Mens Replica shows commitment to children in need. Laureus Sport for Good Foundation helps millions of children and adolescents from all over the world who lead a daily struggle with poverty, war, violence, homelessness, drugs, racism and disease. The collaboration between IWC and the foundation started with the Portuguese Chronograph Automatic in 2006, and it continues for five consecutive years. Each year, one of the models from a wide range of IWC's collections is selected and revamped to be issued in a dedicated limited edition.
Last in the catalogue in 2006, the IWC Portugieser Replica split-seconds chronograph was a classic of the late 1990s, powered by a cleverly designed movement that simplified the rattrapante function. Slim for a split-seconds at just 12.5mm high, case and all, the Portugieser rattrapante was discontinued as IWC migrated to in-house movements for most of its line-up (the movement inside the rattrapante was based on a Valjoux 7750).
Directly inspired by the 1948 Mark 11 replica watch, the new entry-level IWC Pilot's replica watch Mark XVIII for SIHH 2016 is a swiss replica watch that the brand says is "reduced to essentials." A simple three hand replica watch designed for maximum legibility, the piece is a welcome addition to the IWC Pilot replica watch line. It's simple, but a handsome base IWC designed for maximum legibility, and is my idea of simplicity at its best.
During the SIHH 2016 in January, IWC Mens Replica showed us a range of new Pilot models – or upgrades of existing models. One of the models that received a lot of attention was the complicated IWC Pilot Timezoner Chronograph 3950.
The popular IWC replica watch marks its fourth year as “Official Festival Time Partner” of the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in 2016. As in all three previous years of the partnership, the Schaffhausen-based watch brand is releasing a limited-edition watch as a tribute to the Tribeca Film Institute . This year’s timepiece, officially unveiled this week at the annual “For the Love of Cinema” gala in New York, is a special edition of the special IWC Portugieser Annual Calendar replica watch, first launched at SIHH 2015.
As you can see on the picture below, the crown is rather small but I think it easy to grasp and use. A full winding of this movement will result in a power reserve of approximately a day and a half. Enough to get through the day and in time to have it fully wound again somewhere during the next morning. I always wind my IWC replica watches every morning, as I find it more difficult to remember when I did it last time it was necessary than to just do this little fun task every morning as a ritual.
We are looking at possibly one of the most fitting answers to that question: with the reference 5151 IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Monopusher Chronograph replica watch, IWC has checked all the boxes with a beautiful dressy chronograph, backed by an impressive movement in this replica watch fitting of the Portofino name.
