The Pilot series stands out as one of IWC’s remarkably successful collections, boasting numerous classic models coveted by many enthusiasts. In 2019, IWC solidified its position as a frontrunner by introducing several watches that captivated the attention of watch aficionados. Notable among them are the Pilot Bronzo, Pilot Chrono Spitfire Chrono, and the Spitfire IW387903. As one of the select brands specializing in Pilot watches, IWC arguably holds the title of being the most triumphant. Personally, I appreciate the design aesthetics of IWC, finding it particularly well-suited for the preferences of Asian consumers compared to other Swiss brands.
In May 2019, I showcased a replica IWC Pilot watch crafted from bronze material. Today, I’m excited to present another exceptional Pilot Spitfire watch from a different manufacturer, namely Z factory. While V6 is recognized as a major player producing high-quality replica IWC watches, Z factory holds a dominant position in the replica IWC arena.
The Z factory’s replica IWC Spitfire watch boasts a significant advantage – its sapphire crystal is equipped with double AR coating, lending it a subtle bluish tint. Consequently, when observing the time on the dial from any angle, the clarity is exceptional, creating an effect where the crystal seems almost nonexistent.
In addition to the crystal enhancement, Z factory has implemented two other notable improvements in this replica watch. Firstly, the subdials now feature more delicate circles, with improved accuracy in terms of thickness and spacing between each circle, bringing them closer to the authentic watch. Secondly, attention to detail extends to the hands, particularly the correct replication of the propeller-shaped end on the central second-chronograph hand.
The final thing you concern about is if the replica watch has a full chronograph function. I must say yes. The watch is equipped with the most widely used Asia Valjoux 7750 movement, you can operate the chronograph buttons like you do on a genuine. Thanks to the solid case, Z factory did not make too much modification on the movement, so it could maintain a high stability of the original movement.
