Flight has always been one of the main arteries into the watch hobby.We fantasize about strapping a reliable timepiece to our wrist and taking to the sky on a grand adventure – the iwc replica watch, our noble companion keeping us on track. One way that IWC recognizes this and honors that tradition is with with their Le Petit Prince collection.
This watch will feature a constant force tourbillon in the Cheap IWC Replica Manufacture Calibre 94805, which we saw used in a Portugieser here.This patented constant-force tourbillon solves that problem by separating the escapement from the dial train and meters the tension applied to the balance spring.
The result is an even dispersion of force to the escape wheel canceling out the effect of gravity and providing remarkable precision, the brand claims. The tourbillon itself is visible at 9 o’clock on the dial ticking away at 2.5Hz. The hand-wound movement boasts a 96hr power reserve indicated on the IWC Replica Watches dial between 4 and 5 o’clock, and a perpetual moon phase display at 1 o’clock with the Petite Prince character perched on his planet instead of a moon.
As with other Big Pilots, this version is 46.2mm wide and 13.5mm thick, and the case back features a sapphire display to view the decorated bridges and get some glimpses of the gear train.
This 45mm-wide IWC Portofino Replica Watch is large, but far from brash or blingy. Available in either 18k white or red gold, the white gold model has a slate colored dial with a brushed surface treatment, while the red gold has a silvery white dial.
While the US IWC Replica Watches Portofino Hand-Wound Monopusher is indeed large, when you flip it over and view the movement through the display case back, you get a better sense of why the case is just so… generously sized.Ticking at 4Hz with a power reserve of 192 hours, the chronograph mechanism is modular and features a column wheel.
Despite its modular architecture, the High Quality IWC Replica Watches Portofino Hand-Wound Monopusher Chronograph is only 13mm thick, making it no more cumbersome on wrist than most simple sport watches. The movement is treated to a lovely finish that accents its open design and lack of a winding rotor.
The dial design is delicate and direct, using a successful mix of classic and more modern elements. Legibility is strong and the view of the dial is preserved with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The Fake IWC Watches markers are applied and catch the light with a glimmer that is nicely matched by the tone and color of the precious metal case options.
On wrist, the IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Monopusher feels like a power move. It’s large but classic and the more complicated layout of the dial is belied by the simple lines of the case, which is wide but features minimal lugs. The thin bezel further enlarges the overpowering visual effect of the wide dial, while the clean lines and non-cluttered layout save the Cheap IWC Replica Portofino from being too much, aesthetically.
Finished with a matching – and indeed genuinely beautifully crafted – alligator strap from Santoni and a matched 18k gold tang buckle, the IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Monopusher Chronograph retails.
