The famous pilot watch manufacturer AAA IWC replica watches released the latest version, the new pilot chronograph version “Blue Angels”. The blue case is a special edition of the Schaffhausen brand’s pilot watch series, released in cooperation with the “Blue Angels” of the US Navy.
Replica Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Blue Angels”
The new perfect replica “Blue Angels” watch is the first watch released since IWC replica announced an eight-year warranty extension. The Blue Angels are a demonstration squadron of the U.S. Navy. The team was founded in 1946-making it the second oldest aerobatic team in the world-since its inception, the team has demonstrated countless flight shows and conducted countless community outreach projects. As part of the 141-member team, they participated in aerial shows and overpasses throughout the United States, performing for more than 11 million spectators each year.
The “Blue Angels” watch adopts IWC’s pilot replica chronograph design with some unique changes. Most importantly, this watch uses a 44.5 mm polished black zirconia ceramic case, which is different from the steel cases commonly used in other pilot chronographs-although the new model still uses brushed steel to make the chronograph buttons and crown.
The dial of the watch is in daylight blue with a matching calfskin strap to fix the watch on the wrist and embellish it with the outer white and inner yellow minute/hour rings. The brand stated that these aspects were influenced by the “early military observer watch”, which is a reference to the German B-Uhren watch in the wartime era, which still has a significant influence on IWC replica’s pilot watch design.
