Another Look: Bronze IWC Pilot's Chronograph 41

Bronze and blue - an unlikely but gorgeous combo.replica swiss watches

In recent years, the watchmaking industry has been keen to experiment with different materials. Steel, ceramics, PVD coatings, and even recycled carbon have all found their way into watches recently. However, one material has won the hearts of almost all watch collectors - bronze.

For those who may not be familiar with the metal, bronze is an alloy of copper mixed with a variety of other materials. There is no one perfect method of making alloys, so over time the composition and appearance of alloys has changed. However, one thing that has remained constant is that bronzes will age and rust beautifully over time.

IWC Pilot's Chronograph
The IWC Pilot's Chronograph 41 is as timeless as the bronze itself, and today the canvas for this material is the IWC Pilot's Chronograph 41. By now, many of us are familiar with the pilot's chronograph, which has been a staple of the brand since the 1990s. Today’s models, however, are direct descendants of the iconic 3706 and 3705 “Fleigerchronograph” models from 1994.luxury replica watches

Those models were 39mm in diameter, whereas today's pilot chronographs range in diameter from 41mm to 43mm. A smaller and popular 41mm case was introduced last year. IWC also upgraded the movement considerably with the IWC 69385 movement. 69385 is still based on the solid and powerful Valjoux 7750, with a 46-hour power reserve, beautiful finishes and a semi-skeletonized oscillating weight.

Earlier this year, though, the IWC Pilot's Chronograph 41 received a new dial color to match its bronze case. While the bronze case previously offered a green dial on vintage-inspired Spitfire chronographs, it now gets a blue-dial variant, adding a distinctly modern twist to offset the Spitfire's retro aesthetic.

blue dial, but no blues here
So, here's a new dial color... what's the big deal?

Well, it's not that simple. The dial color of the IW388109 (let's just call it the Pilot's Chronograph) has changed to a warm sunburst blue, but it now also gains gold-plated hands and cream printed Arabic numerals with a matching bezel. The day and date dials have also been changed to a more harmonious cream color, which really brings out the essence of the bronze case. The chronograph’s sub-registers retain their signature pilot-style luminous hands, but the six o’clock register has a nice red finish on the hands that really spices things up. In this case, a little red goes a long way.replica Richard Mille watches

The watch comes with a very elegant blue textile strap and a case with bronze hardware. Another advantage is that the strap is also equipped with IWC's new EasX-CHANGE strap system, which allows the wearer to open and close the strap by simply pressing a small button on the bottom of the case - taking us one step closer to the future No more stabbing yourself with spring bar tools!

We had the opportunity to sample the IWC Pilot's Chronograph 41 Bronze/Blue at various times and locations. From our first encounter at Watches & Wonders to our summer poolside outings, the IWC Pilot's Chronograph 41 in bronze and blue has proven to be a versatile companion.

Like other members of the Pilot's Chronograph 41 collection, the 41mm case is approximately 14.5mm thick for a comfortable fit. The 41mm case is still my personal choice over the larger 43mm Pilot's Chronograph which is a little too big for my wrist. Combined with 10 bar water resistance, this watch can handle just about anything you throw at it, and it's stylish! replica mens watch

Unlike the Spitfire, which shares the same bronze case, this blue-dial example gets an exhibition case back, so when you decide to replace those straps or remove them from your wrist, you can admire the movement (and the way it always Pleasant column wheel action).

With killer proportions that are easy to wear and a beautiful gold/blue colorway, this watch has me thoroughly enjoying my time. I think it represents an exceptional value for someone who is looking for a great everyday chronograph, and also a unique addition to an older collection due to the unavoidable patina of the case.https://www.reviewluxurystore.com

DESDE ISLA DE PASCUA MAGDALENA NOVOA V.Los primeros quince días de febrero se celebra la Tapati en Isla de Pascua, una fiesta que muchos no conocen, y que representa una de las mayores expresiones culturales de la Polinesia.Desde hace más de cuarenta años este encuentro reúne a los pascuenses tras un objetivo: revivir sus antiguas tradiciones y transmitirlas a los más jóvenes, mediante competencias destinadas a elegir a la reina del año entre las familias participantes. Los turistas se sorprenden al ver la capacidad de organización de los Rapa Nui, que dedican, durante meses, su tiempo libre a concretar con éxito las más de 50 pruebas ancestrales que conforman esta festividad.De día, diversos rincones de la Isla reciben al público y a los concursantes que participan en competencias como la triatlón rapa nui -carrera con cuelgas de plátano, posta y canotaje- que se mezcla con expresiones artísticas, como tallado en piedra y madera, confección de collares de conchas y coronas de flores, entre otras. Y, a las 21:45 horas, el escenario, ubicado en Hanga Roa, decorado este año con pinturas inspiradas en la leyenda del hombre pájaro, llena de color la noche, mientras que la música y los bailes, interpretados por los clanes participantes, animan a los más de 4.000 asistentes, entre rapa nui y turistas.La Tapati es una fiesta hecha por y para los pascuenses, una enciclopedia de su historia relatada en Rapa Nui, y si bien el idioma priva a los visitantes de conocer el secreto que encierran las letras de las canciones o el tema de las obras, resalta el misticismo de una Isla que, por siglos, ha cautivado a quienes se han aventurado a cruzar 3.700 kilómetros por el Océano Pacífico y vivir una experiencia inolvidable en el ombligo del mundo.
