John Mayer Talks Original IWC Big Pilot Replica

One of the most popular videos we ever did here on was Talking Watches With John Mayer. It was, in actuality, supposed to be a one-off – a look at a well known watch lover’s favorite pieces. That video aired all the way back in October of 2013, and to be totally frank, we were just winging it – two guys talking about a few Cheap IWC Replica with Will there to film it. Now, 22 episodes later, it’s safe to say Talking Watches is one of our benchmark editorial products; and so we thought it might be kinda fun to bring back our original guest – Mr. John Mayer – to pick up the conversation and focus on just one of his many horological passions – IWC Replica Watches.

John’s relationship with IWC is long and storied. An IWC Big Pilot was one of his first high-end watches, and the one that most would associate with him in the earliest part of his career. He wore one on stage for years, his stage name to the tour managers was even “Big Pilot” – hell, when he won his first Grammy, he celebrated it with an IWC Replica.
I would venture to say that without IWC, John wouldn’t be a watch collector at all. It’s the brand that paved the way for him to get into vintage Rolex, and eventually complicated Pateks. John Mayer and IWC Replica Watches are linked, though there is no formal relationship, no friend-of-the-brand status that IWC loved so much for so long – nothing, really. John just bought IWC watches because he liked them.

But as with any relationship, there are ups and there are downs. And about two years ago, John wrote what we thought was really a fan letter to Cheap IWC Replica that we published here on – written in the manner you might take when telling your best friend that he’s marrying the wrong girl. You kinda know nothing you say is going to change him, but you have to tell him anyway – because you love him that much. There was a comments-driven kerfuffle around it, because, you know, this is the internet, and the world moved on.

And then IWC Replica Watches answered back. Less than a week after we ran the letter, they dropped a killer manually wound Portuguese. Then this year, they produced some fantastic limited edition Big Pilots, and redesigned (and absolutely nailed) their entry-level pilots watches – the Mark XVIII and 36 mm Pilots watch – both priced under $4,000, to boot. While IWC Replica may have quickly issued a reply to John’s letter here these watches were the real answer. Which brings us to today, and John is, again, for the first time in a while, wearing an IWC – not because they pay him to, but because he wants to – the relationship, after all that its been through, continues on just as it should.

IWC Da Vinci Chronograph & Da Vinci Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph Replica Watches

For long-term viewers and aBlogtoWatch readers, you may know that IWC loves to refresh its core collections every year. Last year, it was “pilots watch”, 2015 is the Portuguese year. This year, I am pleased to say that one of the most neglected series of IWC is getting updates. I certainly refer to Da Vinci’s collection. In December 2016, IWC announced the launch of the new Da Vinci calendar chronograph and the other two Da Vinci watches. Today, we will turn our attention to the new IWC Da Vinci Chronograph Replica Watches and the IWC Da Vinci Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph.

Let’s take a look at these two simpler “Da Vinci Chronograph”, “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation”. Earlier “Da Vinci Calendar Chronograph” announcement, IWC Replica Watches is recycling the early Da Vinci watches round the situation, and IWC Da Vinci chronograph “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” is the case. We assume that there will be a standard model, which is probably the most variable to come to the film design. This is the brand’s 11th “Rolex movement as a good foundation” watch, and since 2006, IWC launched a special edition of the watch every year, sales proceeds will be part of the direct delivery to the Lawrence Sports Promotion Foundation. The Lawrence Sports Promotion Foundation is a sports-based charity that aims to improve the lives of young people in disadvantaged areas around the world.
It will be equipped with a 42mm wide stainless steel case and a blue dial with sunscreen function and found two sub dials at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock. The former is a 12 hour accumulator for the elapsed time and minutes while the latter is running the stopwatch. The sub dial has a contrast to the dial. It is also a date window in the running stopwatch. One of the features of this new round of the IWC Replica case is articulated curved lugs to provide a better fit for the wearer. With a smooth black Santoni crocodile leather strap, it also gives the watch a gorgeous look.

For the IWC DaVinci chronograph to provide power, IWC internal movement 89361 is a flyback function with the chronograph movement. And because of the IWC’s efficient double claw system, the IWC DaVinci Chronograph “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” has 68 hours or nearly 3 days of power reserve. Water resistance is 30 meters. Unfortunately, this watch can not be seen because the watch uses a specially carved case – this is a sign of all Laureus special watches. In this case, the mentally handicapped boy in Shanghai, China portrayed the case in the competition. It was a lovely painting and added some fun to this pretty serious watch. Again, I think Cheap IWC Replica will release a standard model with a more typical (possible exhibition) case.

Go ahead and we come to IWC Da Vinci Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph. The name tells you most of what you need to know and what you need to know is that this is a fairly complicated watch. Da Vinci Tourbillon retrograde chronograph with 44 mm wide 18k red gold case, silver dial, and with the same hinge earrings, will become the new IWC Da Vinci series of one of the features.

IWC Da Vinci Chronograph “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” and IWC Da Vinci Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph is the more complex two watch in the new Da Vinci series, I particularly like the Da Vinci chronograph “Lawrence Sports for Good Foundation” comes back with its blue dial and whimsical scoring. IWC Replica is certainly more complex and can be said to be more eye-catching between the two, but I found this dial a bit confusing, especially the eccentric retrograde date display.
