IWC Big Pilot’s Replica Watch Perpetual Calendar “Top Gun Lake Tahoe”. While IWC is no stranger to ceramic as a case material, this is the first time the signature IWC perpetual calendar has been combined with white ceramic, certainly one of the brand’s most popular case materials.
Cheap IWC Replica has now introduced a white ceramic perpetual calendar, adding the popular case material to its trademark complication. Fans of the perpetual calendar will not be disappointed since the dial design sticks to a tried-and-tested formula.
The overall aesthetics, however, are striking. The juxtaposition of the matte black dial and white ceramic transforms the often elegant complication into something sportier and cooler.
On the other hand, owners of the AAA IWC Top Gun chronograph Replica in white ceramic might be disappointed that the material is no longer unique to that model, but it was practically a given IWC would launch more white ceramic models given the commercial success of the material.
Inspired by a water body
The IWC Lake Tahoe Perpetual Calendar Replica Watch is the newest addition to the Top Gun line-up, which is named after the U.S. navy fighter pilot programme known as TOPGUN. Similar to its chronograph counterpart, the perpetual calendar utilises white ceramic for its case.
With a diameter of 46.5 mm and a height of 15.6 mm, the Lake Tahoe is marginally thicker than the standard Big Pilot’s Perpetual Calendar in steel or gold, with the case size growing by 0.3 mm and the thickness by 0.6 mm.
Save for the colour, the overall design composition is identical to the standard IWC Big Pilot’s Perpetual Calendar Replica, including the distinct “onion” crown at three.
The crisp white case provides a striking contrast to the matte black dial featuring hour and minute hands coated with white Super-Luminova. All the indicators – including the four-digit year disc between seven and eight, plus the moons – are in a consistent white hue.
The reverse of the First Copy Watches shows off the cal. 52615 that includes the Pellaton winding system and twin barrels that deliver a seven-day power reserve.
Even more impressive is the remarkable perpetual calendar module created by IWC Replica Watches For Discount technical chief Kurt Klaus in the 1980s that can be set entirely through the crown (but only forwards, and not backwards).
And the moon phase is also notable. With the use of a reductive gear train, the double moon phase only deviates by one day in 577.5 years, far surpassing the industry norm of 122.5 years.
