This is a rather entertaining, useful, and approachable feature on a iwc pilot timezoner chronograph replica watch designed to simplify the jump from one timezone to another.Among a largely refreshed pilot lineup for SIHH 2016, we find a welcome and very cool spin on IWC’s Pilot’s Worldtimer, the IWC Pilot’s Timezoner Chronograph (debuted here) that we got to see hands-on. Using a unique in-house movement with a connected bezel system, you can set and update the local time and its 24-hour display by turning the bezel.
The IWC Pilot’s Timezoner Chronograph not only features a unique way of changing timezones, it also uses a somewhat strange worldtime/GMT display that links the local 12-hour hand with the 24-hour hand (the one with the red tip). So, unlike a Rolex GMT Master II, where the local hand and the GMT hand are independently set to track local and home time (respectively), the IWC Pilot’s Timezoner Chronograph watch’s additional hand is meant only to show 24-hour time (AM/PM) in the timezone selected by the bezel.The iwc pilot replica watch useful feature list is supported by IWC’s calibre 89760, a 4hz movement that offers 68 hours of power reserve, a date at three, hours (max: 12) and minutes recorded on the sub dial at twelve, and a jumping hour travel function.
With the watch set correctly, you can simply turn the bezel until your new local city is at twelve and the time will be updated to suit the new locale. The entire process is done without affecting the movement’s accuracy or halting the progress of the seconds or minute hand.So how does it actually function? The sprung bezel is captive, so it has to be depressed before it will spin (like on an IWC 3536). Press the bezel down and turn it in either direction to set the local and 24-hour hands backwards or forwards. Cities with daylight saving time have a small “s” position that will enable a summer setting to ensure the correct time is shown. If you cross the date line, the date will advance or retreat accordingly.
With a solid caseback and an anti-reflective sapphire crystal (that is specially secured against rapid pressure decreases), the iwc replica watches meets all of IWC’s requirements for a pilot’s watch and is water resistant to 60 meters.Carrying the reference 3905, this automatic chronograph is 45mm wide with a steel case which, including the bezel, is some 16.5mm thick.
