IWC replica launched a new conceptual work – “IWC Big Pilot’s Replica Watch shock absorber XPL” during the watches & wonders exhibition in 2021. Equipped with an exclusive spring-g protect damping system, the movement is “suspended” in the watch case through a special spring, which is said to be able to resist gravity acceleration exceeding 30000 G.
The “cantilever spring” structure is the core of the whole spring-g protect damping system. You can see these golden components at the edge of the dial. The spring is made of “bulk metallic glass”, which has amorphous microstructure and stronger elasticity than traditional metal materials. In case of impact, on the one hand, the spring can evenly disperse the external force, on the other hand, it can buffer with the help of elasticity to avoid the collision between the movement and the watch case.
The 44mm case is made of ceratanium porcelain titanium, which has the lightness of titanium and the wear resistance of ceramics. The crown chain mechanism has been redesigned, and the special structure of the handle shaft enables the movement to operate independently of the watch case, further improving the seismic performance. The simple black frosted dial has a large three needle layout with small time scale numbers, with a mysterious and low-key style.
Equipped with IWC replica watches 32115 automatic chain movement, it provides 120 hour power reserve. IWC Replica specially modified this movement, using lighter aluminum alloy to replace the original brass motherboard, so as to reduce the burden of the spring. The case lining ring is also made of ultra light titanium.
This IWC replica watch will be limited to 30 in the next three years.
