IWC Big Pilot Annual Calendar “Le Petit Prince” IW502710
While the IWC Replica Watches are characterised by their warm colours and tobacco brown dials, the Petit Prince models display midnight-blue dials, stylised numerals and a certain vintage vibe. Today, the collection is enlarged with the new Big Pilot Annual Calendar Le Petit Prince IW502710, which is now available in stainless steel.
The Annual Calendar complication appeared first at IWC in 2015, within the Portugieser collection. And it has been within the Pilot’s Quality Replica Watch range since 2016. But keep in mind that this practical display of the calendar remains sort of a rarity and not many Big Pilot watches have been equipped with this complex movement.
Today, it’s a pretty cool watch that we’re looking at, the latest edition of the IWC Big Pilot’s Exact Replica Watch Annual Calendar in a Petit Prince attire, and now in a stainless steel case. Visually, there’s no doubt that this new reference IW502710 is a Big Pilot with an oversized 46.2mm case.
Yes, it’s large and thick – over 15mm – but that’s the whole concept of this collection. The case, in steel, is mostly finished with brushed surfaces, with some polished accents on the Cheap IWC Replica bezel and on the signature diamond-shaped crown. It features sapphire crystals on both sides and is water-resistant to 60 metres.
The dial of this new Big Pilot’s Watch Annual Calendar has all the characteristic traits of the Petit Prince collection. This means a sunray-brushed dial in midnight blue and the stylised, slightly Art Deco Arabic numerals found on all watches of this range.
Note that these markers are not applied here, but printed on the dial. All the elements of the dial are generously covered in white Super-LumiNova.
Another important feature of this new IWC Replica Watches sale is its calendar display. First of all, the month, date, and day are exposed in three separate semi-circular windows on the dial, bringing a very intuitive read of the indications.
Powering this oversized and bold Big Pilot Annual Calendar Le Petit Prince IW502710 is the automatic calibre 52850, made in-house by IWC. This movement is as large as the watch housing it and boasts a solid 7-day power reserve when fully wound.
It also features the automatic winding system developed by Albert Pellaton. Through the Replica Watches China sapphire caseback, it reveals a nice architecture with opened bridges and, something unique to this edition, a specific rotor that takes the shape of the Little Prince on his asteroid B-612.
The Best Steel IWC Big Pilot’s Replica Watch Annual Calendar Edition Le Petit Prince IW502710 is worn on a riveted brown pilot’s strap, closed by a steel folding clasp.
