The IWC Big Pilot Power reserve is a very reliable watch meant for a man who works in a hard environment or a man who greatly depends on their watch. Here we have two watches, one a replica and the other an original IWC that have been put next to each other for comparison. After close inspection we can see that there are four differences between the two watches, but nothing is very serious as the replica watch still looks like the original brand very much.

The first difference we notice is the missing button on the left of the watch. The original watch seems to have a button on the upper left part while the replica doesn’t. However, overall, both watches look the same and the missing part is not that noticeable. The following differences have to do with the chronographs on the watch. Starting with the first chronograph on the top we see that there are the following numbers: 4, 8, 12; however, on the chronograph that can be found on the original watch the numbers you see are: 10, 20, 30. Another problem is with the next chronograph where you can easily read  the numbers 14, 16  while on the original watch chronograph the numbers on this particular chronograph are 20, 40. But fortunately on this chronograph the fact that a number is missing and the brand is written instead is respected, so that will probably be the element that makes the replica watch more realistic. However, the third chronograph has a problem too with its numbers. The chronograph on the original IWC watch has the following set of numbers: 3, 6, 9, 12; however, IWC replica watch doesn’t respect this sequence and seems to have its own numbers:  6, 12, 18, 24, making this the last difference between these two watches.

A beautiful watch, the Royal Oak Tourbillon is definitely something only connoisseurs would get. Such a remarkable piece of craftsmanship is definitely hard to copy but fortunately for those who cannot afford one, there are some good replicas out there.

Here we have two watches from this series, a replica watch and an original one and they have been put side by side for comparison. There are a total of 4 differences between these two watches and starting with the bezel we have the first. It seems that there is a slightly different bezel on the replica watch, a bulky one with the edges not as rounded as the one on the original watch.

The next difference is on the left chronograph that seems to be showing different numbers on the replica watch; so we have the numbers 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 on the original watch and numbers 1,2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 on the replica watch. Also, the design on the lower chronograph is also different as it seems to be smaller on the replica watch, less detailed and with a gold edge, while the original features a more contrasted, no edge and bigger design.  The chronograph on the right is also different on the original watch when compared to the replica watch, making this the forth difference and the last when it comes to these watches. On the replica watch we can see the following sequence of numbers on the right chronograph: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 31 while on the original watch the numbers are slightly different: 05, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30. However, these differences don’t set the watches apart too much and the replica could easily pass as an original watch as long as it is not put side by side to one.
