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.
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 cheap swiss replica watch 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.
