Combining the lightness of titanium and the scratch-proof nature of ceramic is Swiss made fake IWC’s Ceratanium. Rendered here into the shape of a Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 Top Gun, it doesn’t quite match the jet black aesthetic of the BP43, opting for a matte anthracite colour. Once again, collaborating with Pantone, AAA quality replica IWC is simply calling this colour – IWC Ceratanium.
The case, crown and chrono pushers all get the Ceratanium treatment, while the caseback offers a look into the Swiss movement fake IWC 69385 calibre. At 41mm in diameter and 14.5mm in thickness, it shrinks one way and grows the other when comparing to the IWC Big Pilot replica for men. The Chronograph 41 opts for grey luminescent material on the hands and indices, trading some legibility for pure style points.
With a relatively low power reserve of 46-hours, the 69385 calibre consists of 231 components, some visible through the tinted sapphire caseback. The movement of the perfect fake IWC offers a small seconds at 6 o’clock, with 30-minute and 12-hour totalisers at 12 o’clock and 9 o’clock, respectively. Finally, the 3 o’clock position is occupied by a day and date aperture.
