Now, 15 years later, IWC unveils a long-awaited successor with the Big Pilot’s Watch 43 Tourbillon Markus Bühler.
The AAA best US fake IWC Big Pilot’s Watches 43 Tourbillon Markus Bühler has been 20 years in the making. Its origins trace back to 2003 when Markus Bühler—IWC’s current associate director of watch and movement assembly—was in the final year of his watchmaker apprenticeship with the brand. At that time, he refined a pocket watch movement resulting in the unique turbine caliber that would become the focal point of the 2008 cheap replica IWC Big Pilot’s Watches Edition Markus Bühler. The movement took first prize at the 2003 Prix IFHH de l’Horlogerie (today Concours IHC) competition for apprentices and caught the attention of IWC, which led to the development of the special-edition model to showcase Bühler’s creation.

In the original, the turbine—reminiscent of an aircraft engine—appeared as the high quality replica watches‘ seconds indicator. Adapting this design to the tourbillion mechanism unsurprisingly presented some unique challenges. In a tourbillon, the balance and escapement are housed in a small cage that rotates around its axis once per minute. The higher its mass and inertia, the more energy it takes to keep the mechanism in motion.

All in all, this state-of-the-art tourbillon consists of 56 parts and weighs only 0.663 grams.
“When I created my Big Pilot’s Watch with a turbine as an apprentice watchmaker, I would never have imagined I would lead the development of a second edition 15 years later—let alone that I would be responsible for all assembly processes at IWC,” explains Markus Bühler. To meet the high expectations of our collectors, we decided to create something truly exclusive and integrate the signature turbine into a tourbillon. This new edition perfectly embodies IWC’s engineering spirit while showcasing highest levels of detail and craftsmanship.”
