My pick — AAA perfect fake IWC Ingenieur SL Quartz ref. 3303
My pick had to be Gerald Genta’s replica IWC Ingenieur. Of course, it had to be, as I love all three of Genta’s creations. But somehow, I have grown to love the best UK sale fake IWC Ingenieur even more because it is somewhat of the underdog out of the trio of watches. Genta’s original replica IWC Ingenieur SL “Jumbo” ref. 1832 UK was introduced in 1976, and IWC replica only produced a little over 500 pieces of this classic. But in 1980, best fake IWC also introduced the quartz version of this watch, the Swiss made fake IWC Ingenieur SL Quartz ref. 3303. This quartz version is not just the same watch with a different movement. UK perfect replica IWC actually changed the design slightly, and to my surprise, I actually like this over the reference 1832.
The watch features the same 40mm case but the quartz movement allows for a much thinner case. The automatic version has a 12.5mm thick case, and this quartz version features an 8.7mm thick case. To ensure the bracelet was in the right proportion, AAA high-quality replica IWC UK also made the bracelet thinner and a little more elegant. Additionally, the bezel was redesigned, becoming slightly thicker. What remained was the beautiful checkerboard guilloché dial said to remember graph paper. The watch came with the choice of a black or a silver dial, and I must say it looks incredible.
A tough find
Inside the case, Swiss made replica IWC used their IWC Caliber 2250 once again, essentially a renamed ETA 955.112 quartz movement. The movement features hours, minutes, and central seconds and has a date display at 3 o’clock. The date display of the quartz version features a stainless steel frame which its automatic brother doesn’t, and therefore it integrates better with the black dial. Another great detail is the iconic fish logo used on the crown, indicating a water-resistant watch. The steel ref. 3303 was water-resistant up to 12 atm. IWC replica also produced a glorious 18 karat yellow gold model with ref. 9701 that was technically the same except for the water resistance of 6 atm.
Between 1980 and 1985, best UK sale replica IWC produced only 369 pieces of the Swiss made replica IWC Ingenieur SL Quartz. Of those 369 pieces, 149 were produced in steel. An additional 160 were produced in steel and gold, 56 were produced in yellow gold with the just mentioned ref. 9701, and finally 4 pieces with diamonds were produced with ref. 9720. It goes to show you how rare the steel version is. In comparison, practical replica IWC produced 543 pieces of the automatic version of the perfect replica IWC Ingenieur SL “Jumbo” ref. 1832 UK. But the difference in price on top of the better-proportioned design might be a reason to search for the perfect replica IWC Ingenieur SL Quartz ref. 3303. They do not show up often for sale but expect to pay between €7.5K–€10K for one. Compared to the automatic version, that is a lot cheaper.
