The most common questions about IWC Pilot
Is IWC Big pilot worth it?It's definitely worth if you are looking to buy an IWC Big Pilot's watch and want to spend under 10k, and also when you compare it to the 7 day version which is nearly 13k. However, I don't really think it's worth it otherwise because there are many other watches I would much rather have.May 15, 2021
Is IWC worth the money?Are IWC Watches a Good Investment? Absolutely. As well as looking good, IWC watches can provide a fantastic opportunity for investment. The timepieces have a history of creeping up in value over the years, making them a great alternative to more well-known brands.Jan 18, 2022

What is the smallest IWC Big Pilot?For most of its modern life, the Big Pilot has been made in a 46mm case size. Last year IWC released a 43mm version. And while 3mm doesn't seem like a huge deal, a small shift in case size represents a major shift in ideology (and wearability).Nov 2, 2021

All of Rolex's movements are produced in-house.Jan 5, 2022
How can you tell a fake IWC Big Pilot?To spot fake IWC watches, you have to check the details available on the dial of your watch, since the replica items often have the elements on the dial at the incorrect font-weight, while the genuine IWC watches are never flawed, thanks to their higher-quality.
