A trend is emerging at perfect replica IWC UK: the prestigious Swiss watchmaker is increasingly filling out its core collections with in-house movements. Following the recent super clone Mark XX IWC Pilot’s Watch the brand’s Aquatimer Automatic dive watch now gets the treatment. Previously powered by sourced ETA movements, the update feels overdue but welcome and brings a whole new appeal to a watch that’s unique in the crowded dive-watch space.
Looking at the new 1:1 fake IWC Aquatimer Automatic, though, you wouldn’t be able to tell much has changed, as its specs, dimensions and design are basically identical to the outgoing models. But what’s inside makes all the difference: it’s the brand’s 32111 automatic movement with no less than five days of power reserves — in comparison to the existing model’s ETA 2892 with its typical 42 hours. It isn’t a new movement, but its inclusion offers convenience and all the things that enthusiasts tend to value about in-house movements like a more cohesive overall product, more technical interest and better value — especially since the upgrade only bumps up the price by about $350.
AAA replica IWC UK is best known for its pilot’s watches, and the Aquatimer Automatic has sometimes been overlooked among dive watches from big brands in a similar price range. That likely had to do in part with its movement, but now with in-house chops the IWC Aquatimer fake for sale feels rather different. Firstly, it functions and looks distinctive among so many dive watches with more or less similar designs and features — in other words, it’s nothing like a Rolex Submariner. And it works differently, too: the timing scale of the luxury fake IWC Aquatimer is underneath the crystal on the watch’s rehaut, and when you turn bezel in one direction the rehaut rotates in the other. It’s novel and nifty, and intuitive when you try it for yourself.
With the cheap fake IWC Aquatimer UK and the Mark XX both receiving the 32111 movement (both very quietly), it begs the question: what’s next in top copy IWC’s catalog to get the honor? Lord knows there are collections crying out for an in-house movement. The basic, time-only automatic models in the Ingenieur, Portofino and Da Vinci all use sourced movements, for example. The Ingenieur is the strongest candidate for an update that would benefit greatly from an in-house movement and design overhaul (as argued for here).
For now, the luxury dive watch scene and high quality replica IWC offerings in general just got a bit more interesting. The Swiss movement copy IWC Aquatimer Automatic comes in familiar variations with blue (IW328801) or black (IW328802) dial models selling for $5,950 on rubber straps or a blue dial and steel bracelet (IW328803) for a full grand more at $6,950.
