IWC fanboys (of which there are many) have a serious love affair with the Big Pilot replica watch family – and it is easy to see why with its large masculine looks and action-ready stance. I have checked out one of the new Big Pilot fake pieces that comes in an all ceramic case and is part of the Top Gun collection. The technical name of the watch is a bit grammatically and semantically confusing in English being the “Big Pilot’s Watch Top Gun.”
The Big Pilot IWC replica watch is one of IWC’s staple, namely the reference 5009 which comes in a steel case and is a tad bit smaller at 46mm wide. For 2012 IWC released the reference 5019 (IW501901) Big Pilot as part of the Top Gun collection of copy watches. This 5019 version is a bit larger at 48mm wide, which as far as I can tell is due to the case itself being a bit broader on the sides. The dials of the two watches are very similar. One thing that a lot of fans like is the new ceramic case for the Big Pilot Swiss watch – which was previously more or less seen in the chronograph versions. The color is not really black, but closer to a dark gray and offered in a matte finish. It is so handsome in a military and the black look of the case match the dial very good.
