In early December 2015, IWC opened up a new place to their Beverly Hills boutique shop on Rodeo drive — which is some thing CEO Georges Kern was planning his sights on for a while. The previous IWC boutique was magical, but rather literally round the corner in a more compact area along a row of stores neighborhood LA watch lovers refer to as”Richemont Row.” The brand new IWC watch store is bigger and, quite frankly, superbly designed as a room to hang out and look at timepieces. IWC big pilot’s top gun miramar replica watch has really been getting their retail shop concept correctly from a decorative and comfort perspective. What I also like is that when they released their current store concept a few decades ago, it was actually masculine yet approachable which is far removed from the traditional jewellery store-style atmosphere where high-end watches are generally sold.

Included in the opening of the new Rodeo Drive store, IWC big pilot’s watch heritage replica watch obviously established a limited edition watch for the occasion with the mention IW502003 IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Edition Boutique Rodeo Drive. Limited to 250 pieces, this is one of the limited edition models I believe fans of the manufacturer should take note of given the layout in addition to the instance. The previous ceramic-cased IWC Big Pilot’s Replica Watch I analyzed was this Top Gun variant here. Things have changed a little, and while the movement stays the exact same in-house caliber 5111, the new watch is a lot more wearable.

It appears subtle, however, the reduction in the event size from 48mm wide to 46mm broad is a huge deal, making the watch (at least for my wrists) actually comfortable to wear while still clearly being a massive timepiece. I was not able to take many images at the shop opening occasion, but I did snap the above image of the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Boutique Rodeo Drive timepiece for Instagram, which, in my opinion, helps show off its real-world existence a bit more.

Contrary to the rather dull-looking marketing pictures of the watch which neglect to both show the way the dial and play with the light, in person, this ceramic and blue version of the IWC Big Pilot’s watch is really a beauty. For this reason, I always try to advise people to save their ultimate opinion about a watch until they have seen one hands-on if they are on the fence around it. While aBlogtoWatch tries to offer the”next best thing to watching it in person,” in the conclusion of the afternoon, no opinion of a new or particular watch version should concentrate on images alone — especially marketing images.

I had been told this is the initial ceramic and ceramic (for the crown and caseback) version of the IWC Big Pilot’s watch annual calendar spitfire imitation Watch to emerge in this smaller 46mm-wide size (that is 15mm thick) — and that I have not been able to monitor all sizes sufficient to confirm that. The ceramic has an almost glossier gunmetal finish which works with the metallic blue dial very well. The white and black hands along with the hour mark stand out well, offering the same fantastic legibility everybody knows comes with IWC’s own rendition of this classic”flieger” aviation watch. Besides the minimal additional branding on the rear of the case, there’s really little to create this IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Edition Boutique Rodeo Drive watch quite”L.A.” however, so much as limited editions proceed, it’s a very handsome and appealing addition to the new larger pilot watch assortment.

Attached to the IWC Big Pilot’s heritage imitation Watch Edition Boutique Rodeo Drive is a shameful”embossed fabric”-style calf leather strap with a folding deployant clasp which works really nicely with the overall watch design. Limited to 250 pieces, IWC will offer this benchmark IW502003 IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Edition Boutique Rodeo Drive see in both its new Rodeo Drive boutique and some other pick IWC stores around the world.
