M+ Factory Replica IWC Spitfire IW329701 Titanium Watch

It’s been quite a while since we’ve seen new replica watches from IWC. Lately, the focus has been on Submariner, Datejust, Daytona, and Audemars Piguet models. I used to have a strong affinity for IWC, particularly dreaming of owning a Portuguese Chrono watch. Even today, that desire remains, but unfortunately, the budget doesn’t quite align. Surprisingly, I no longer find IWC as aesthetically pleasing, despite the Portuguese Chrono being a standout choice to complement business attire.

In recent months, there’s been a surge in homage watches originating from China and other countries, boasting impressive designs and quality craftsmanship. Many enthusiasts are opting for these alternatives, making it a challenging task to curate a watch collection amidst a plethora of options. With so many high-quality homage watches available at affordable prices, diligent research on the internet and watch forums is essential to avoid squandering funds.

Turning our attention to the Spitfire, it’s the latest addition to the replica IWC watch lineup in our market, crafted by M+ Factory. While M+ isn’t widely recognized, they’ve produced commendable replicas of IWC Mark series watches. However, it’s puzzling why they haven’t ventured into other IWC models. Few individuals opt for IWC watches from M+ unless their desired models aren’t available from other reputable manufacturers like ZF and V7F.

The new IWC Spitfire replica watch boasts a solid Titanium construction, featuring a 43mm diameter case with a thickness of 14.4mm. The Titanium case flaunts a sand-finish, providing a satisfying tactile experience. The sand finish extends to the case, bezel, lugs, and crown, while the solid case back features an airplane motif at the center. The prominent crown boasts a delicate relief of the IWC logo. Despite resembling the real IWC Big Pilot, the case is slightly thicker due to the modified Chinese movement inside, cloned to mimic the genuine IWC Calibre. For those seeking a replica IWC watch with a Swiss movement, I recommend considering V7’s IWC Mark series watches equipped with a genuine Swiss ETA movement.

The blue dial, protected by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, ensures optimal readability even under sunlight. Despite appearing blue, the dial is actually black. Lume material is applied to the hour markers, hour, and minute hands, while the minute markers in white lack luminescence. Unlike some homage watches that overly emphasize lume, the balance here ensures readability without compromising aesthetics. The band replicates the genuine design, but if it’s not to your liking, customization options are available through certain retailers, offering bespoke leather bands at a reasonable cost.
