The New IWC Portugieser Dark Blue Dials have a sunburst finish and the double sub-dial design further makes them look similar at a glance. The stainless steel case – like previous Portugieser watches – is restrained but casual in design with traditional tapered lugs and a thin bezel. The Portugieser Automatic is the larger of the pair with a 42.3mm bezel and a double stepped case. It is also equipped with a larger fluted crown – but similar in design to the Portugieser Chronograph that has a 40.9mm case.
Rated to 30m of water resistance, each of the new IWC Portugieser Copy Watches is best suited for daily office wear. While the Automatic is equipped with a display back, the Chronograph is not, and I’ll get into why shortly.
Going back to the dial, both Fake IWC Watches have applied Arabic markers and polished, rhodium plated leaf shaped hands which complement the case quite well. The Automatic has a sub-dial at 3:00 that indicates power reserve and another sub-dial at 9:00 for continuous seconds. The date window at 6:00 is hard to miss with its white date wheel standing out against the blue dial.
The caliber 79350, as a modified Valjoux 7750, is a competent movement and offers 42 hours of power reserve at 28,800bph, but it is more of a tool watch movement. What makes this choice even more perplexing is that the IWC Portugieser Automatic US is powered by the caliber 52010, which is an IWC in-house design that offers 7 days of power reserve via two barrels, operating at 28,800bph.
This short film presents IWC replica watch‘s historical reproduction work – “IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch Chronograph edition distribute to 3705” chronograph. Inspired by the pilot Ref. 3705, the first black ceramic watch case launched in 1994, it pays tribute to the innovative spirit of the mechanical watch industry to break through the quartz crisis in the 1990s.
Ref. 3705 ceramic fliegerchronograph is Replica IWC’s first pilot watch with a black ceramic case, equipped with a calibrated valjoux / ETA 7750 movement. At that time, watch lovers had not accepted the concept of ceramic watch case, so the production of this model was only 1000 pieces, which was announced to stop production. Until more than 20 years later, it attracted the attention of collectors again and became one of the most popular Fake IWC pilot works in the auction market.
Compared with the original Ref. 3705, the size of the new replica watch case is increased from 39mm to 41mm. The case, bottom, crown and timing button are made of “ceratanium” porcelain titanium independently developed by IWC replica, which has truly become an “all black ceramic” watch.
The dial continues the early design elements such as square pointer. The main change is that the position of the small second hand is moved to 6 o’clock and the 12-hour dial is moved to 9 o’clock. This change is mainly related to the movement structure. Due to the increase of the case size, the proportion of dial elements has also been fine tuned. The diameter of the three small dials is larger, and the time scale has been replaced with more readable non Serif Bold numbers.
Equipped with IWC replica watch 69380 automatic chain movement, swing frequency 28800vph and power reserve of 46 hours. The waterproof capacity of the watch is 60 meters.
With black calf leather strap, limited to 1000 pieces.
In celebration of the company’s 150th anniversary, IWC replica watches launched a series of limited watches on sihh 2018. Although most of them are super high-end timepieces (many of them are equipped with a flywheel mechanism), there are also works like portugieser Chronograph that are suitable for “high-end daily watch lovers”. I personally feel that the latter has shown a high level in technology, design, value and wearing experience. It can be said to be a very handsome portugieser watch. The following is our detailed evaluation of this IWC Portugieser Chronograph Replica Watches “150 years” watch.
In my opinion, only one of the two new IWC Portugieser Chronograph Replica Watches “150 years” is very attractive to me. Each of them is limited to 2000 pieces. The version No. iw371601 shows the blue lacquer dial, and the white dial No. iw371602 is the most attractive one to me. From the design point of view, the former is also very beautiful, but its pointer processing is a big failure. Although its blue dial contrasts strongly with the white scale and looks very clear, IWC makes the (portugieser style) hands too thin and mirror polished. In this way, the pointer and dial can be easily mixed together, which affects the readability of the watch, and can not give full play to the potential of the classic design of portugieser. If IWC replica can use white paint to decorate the pointer and make it consistent with the scale, it may be much better… I hope there will be such a version of portugieser chronography in the future.
Compared with other replica watches seen in sihh, the portugieser chronicle edition “150 years” watch with white lacquer dial is quite excellent. In the past, this kind of wristwatch was equipped with purchased movement, but today, the 41mm diameter portugieser with perfect proportion has been equipped with the 69355 automatic clocking movement made by replica IWC (more details will be given later). Iw371602 with steel case and bright black alligator strap, the overall look is quite classic, advanced. I have always said that portugieser chronography is a “meaningful and moderate” high-end formal watch, which is very suitable for users who pay attention to ease of use and cost performance. In short, in a mature series, it’s absolutely right to choose such a replica watch.
I’ve never been dissatisfied with the portugieser with the ETA modified movement, but since its price has reached this level, it will be more worthwhile to use the homemade movement. Turning this portugieser Chronograph over, we can see that its movement occupies almost the whole back of the watch, which is very attractive. This 69355 automatic timing movement is composed of 194 parts. It is equipped with two-way timing system, and its finishing effect is also remarkable. 69355 movement can only time 30 minutes at most, but it also allows the timing sub disk to be arranged vertically, forming a simple layout. IWC replica also adds a guide roller to the timing system. This movement has a 4 Hz (28800 BPH) swing frequency and can provide 46 hours of power storage.
As mentioned above, the portugieser Chronograph replcia case is 41mm in diameter and only 13.1mm in thickness. The case design of portugieser series is very durable, and the waterproof depth of this case is 30 meters. I think the dial design of this watch can best represent the style of the portugieser series: the combination of pure white dial and black scale reminds me of the inspiration of the series from the nautical clock; The blue steel pointer can also form a contrast with the dial, and the color embellishment is just right. This kind of pointer can make the finishing point on almost any kind of dial.
IWC replica has a large number of portugieser Chronograph replica watches to choose from, and customers will ultimately choose a watch with appropriate price, excellent style and easy to buy. If you are interested in this series, I will recommend the light color dial models, because they can best reflect the design essence of the portugieser series. I miss the days when it was called “Portuguese” instead of “portugieser”. Fake IWC has changed its name for some time, but I still don’t know why. I would like to remind those customers who have just come into contact with this series that when referring to replica IWC, “Portuguese” and “portugieser” basically mean the same thing to dealers and watch fans.
