The IWC Aquatimer Chronograph in Galapagos Islands Edition is surely a great way to experience high end watches that have the best technology behind them. This magnificent timepiece will definitely make the difference, whether you are trying to stand out by accessorizing well or you simply want something sturdy as a sports watch. However, even if it is marketed like that, this lovely piece is definitely a great pick for both the elegant wearer and the casual one. Here we have put two of these watches side by side so that we can see the differences between the replica IWC Aquatimer and the original one.

IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition Galapagos Islands

As you can see both watches look great, but there are some differences that set the replica apart. The first of these differences can be seen on the upper part of the watch, mainly the chronograph. First, it seems that the markings for 12 o’clock are a bit bigger on the replica watch; also, the chronograph shows different numbers as follows: the original chronograph has numbers 30 and 15 written but the replica watch has numbers 60 and 30 on the chronograph.

Additional difference is at the left chronograph where it seems that again the numbers are different; the replica has numbers 12 and 6 while the original watch features numbers 60 and 30. Unfortunately, the same happens with the chronograph on the lower part of the watch where we can clearly see three numbers on the replica watch: 20, 40 and 60. But on the original watch that chronograph has only two numbers: 12 and 6.

Another difference in the same area and a problem with all chronographs on this watch is the fact that their overall design is a bit smaller on the replica, making the markings near each of them seem a lot longer as there is more space, while the markings on the replica are shorter because they are hidden by the bigger chronographs. These are the differences that we can see between these replicas but it’s up to you to make the final decision whether to buy this watch or not.

The IWC Aquatimer Chronograph is truly a remarkable watch; this beautiful accessory doesn’t just stand out through its craftsmanship but also the technology behind it. It is water resistant to 12 bars and has a beautiful finish that will surely attract compliments.  The watch has beautiful features such as a bracelet quick change system, lovely luminescent elements on various parts of it and a mechanical chronograph movement.

Due to the fact that this watch has been so popular over the years and has been such an amazing tool for both casual users and hardcore sports aficionados, it has become one of the biggest replicated watches. Here is a replica of this watch and the watch itself, both put out for comparison so that we can see whether it is actually worth to buy a replica of it.

The first difference that we notice between these two timepieces is the fact that the crown is a bit narrower on the replica watch even if the other buttons are the same size as the ones on the original.

The second difference that you will notice is on the bottom chronograph; this chronograph shows numbers 6 and 12 on the original watch, but on the replica watch the numbers shown are 12 and 24. The next problem that you will encounter on this replica is the fact that the left chronograph shows numbers 09 and 12 instead of numbers 60 and 30 like in the original watch. Also, the upper chronograph seems to have the same problem as what we mentioned before; it seems that the upper chronograph on the replica watch features the following numbers: 12 and 6. However, the chronograph on the original watch has numbers 30 and 15 written on it. Besides the problems with the crown shape and the numbers written on the chronographs there are no other differences between the replica IWC Aquatimer Chronograph and the original timepiece. The colors seem to be the same, the proportions are also right on the replica so it’s up to the buyer whether they believe this watch has good potential or not.

This cool edition from IWC named Galapagos Islands features great watches and is definitely a result of the new discoveries in watchmaking technology. The watch is pressure resistant and is made out of a material that resembles the lava on the volcanic islands. So, if you want something that is truly special, this watch is definitely for you. You get both uniqueness and durability from this watch, making it perfect for both casual outfits and elegant ones. It’s no wonder why some who cannot afford this watch choose to wear a replica, but some replicas are better than others.

Here we have two watches, one replica and the other an original IWC Aquatimer Edition Galapagos Islands; the watches have been put side by side so that we can easily see their differences.

The first difference that we notice between them is on the upper part of the dial, mainly the upper chronograph; there the replica watch has different numbers than the original, so we have numbers 15 and 30 for the original watch but numbers 30 and 60 for the replica. The next difference between these watches is again on the left chronograph; here we have numbers 6 and 12 as opposed to the numbers on the original watch that are 30 and 60. Another difference between the replica watch and the original watch can be seen when we take a look at the marking at 9 o’clock as the design is different on the two watches. On the replica watch the marking is longer than the one on the original watch.

The same happens to the one on the bottom of the dial that can be found at 6 o’clock. This is probably because the chronographs on the replica watch are slightly smaller than the ones on the original IWC. The last difference between the watches is again on a chronograph and also related to the numbers shown there. The replica watch features the following sequence of numbers 20, 40 and 60 while the original watch only has numbers 6 and 12 showing on its chronograph on the lower part of the dial.
