The first IWC Portugieser chronograph Rattrapante Fake watch was launched in 1995 and last appeared in the 2006 IWC catalog.
Even more impressive is that these are not just three of the same watches with different case backs or engravings. There is no such thing here. Cheap IWC Replica has gone a long way, and we have three distinct dials and different dials and vibrations.
The first is the Portugieser Chronograph Rattrapante Replica Watches US“Boutique Milano”, marking its new boutique in Milan, one of the most important fashion capitals in the world.
The Portugieser chronograph Rattrapante Edition “Boutique Milano” features a 41 mm red gold Copy Watches case and a blue dial, which is unique due to the telemetry scale on the dial flange and the tachometer scale inside the dial. Because it uses precious metals and their dial configurations, it is arguably the most desirable trio.
The “Boutique Rue de la Paix” and “Munich Boutique” editions are based on the original 1995 Portugieser Chronograph Rattrapante IWC Knockoff Watches with a 41 mm stainless steel case.
The “Boutique Rue de la Paix” version has a slate dial with a black alligator strap, while the “Munich Boutique” version comes with a blue dial with a blue alligator strap.
All three models are powered by a hand-wound calibre 76240, which is basically a modified Valjoux 7750 with a minute-second chronograph function and a 44-hour power reserve. In addition, these three Best IWC Watches models have a sturdy case back engraved with the icons of their respective cities.
The Portugieser line was considered to be large-sized watches when launched in the 1930s. However, at 42mm, the new IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic Replica is about the median by today’s standards. Offered in either stainless steel or rose gold, the case is elegant with a touch of sportiness thanks to the broad, double-stepped case and round chronograph pushers. In addition, the Cheap IWC Replica is also available in two dial colors: silver and blue. Both dial colors are available in the stainless steel option but the rose-gold is only offered with a silver dial.
On the IWC Replica Watches US dial side, we have a two-register layout with running seconds at 6 o’clock and, unique to this movement, a combined totalizer for chronograph hours and minutes at 12 o’clock. The familiar way of displaying the hours and minutes makes reading the elapsed chronograph time easier and more intuitive. In the images here, for example, the elapsed time would be 10 hours, 9 minutes, and 23 seconds. The dial is completed by a railway track chapter ring, date window, applied Arabic numeral indexes, and elegant minute and hour leaf-shaped hands.
The color of the indexes and hands differ and are designed to contrast with the dial color. The stainless-steel with silver dial has blue indexes with heat-blued steel hands, while the blue dial has polished steel hands with silver indexes. The rose-gold Best IWC Watches, of course, has gold hands and indexes. This is the most noticeable change from the predecessor which had silver indexes and hour and minute hands on a silver dial. This change is definitely an improvement and enhances the aesthetics and, more importantly, the legibility of the dial.
While the Fake IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic Watches ships with an alligator leather strap, black for stainless steel variants and brown for rose-gold, it is likely to also pair well with more casual straps making it a versatile daily wearer that plays well with both formal and more casual attire.
The 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.
