This IWC replica watch us,is a modern icon, practically unchanged since its introduction in the late-1990s. A perfect definition of a classic.
The IWC Portugieser Chronograph Replica is a clean, timeless, well-proportioned watch. Its 40.9mm case makes it suitable for most wrists and most environments, it is both casual and elegant at the same time, its dial is clean, superbly balanced and functional, its movement.
This year, after multiple special versions in blue, we have this new Fake IWC Portugieser Chronograph Blue Textile Strap. There are already several standard steel editions of the 3714 – silver-plated dial with golden indexes, silver-plated dial with blue indexes, black dial with rhodium-plated indexes and blue dial with rhodium-plated indexes.
Usually matching the dial, here it is executed in blue, giving the watch a more casual, nautical style. This visually changes the proportions of the 3714 but remains very appealing. Last but not least, the Copy Portugieser Chronograph Bucherer BLUE is worn on a blue textile strap, again to enhance the casual theme.
As for the rest, the replica watchsteel caseback remains identical to the standard editions, with the same 40.9mm x 12.6mm steel case, the same Calibre IWC 79350 and altogether, this clean, elegant design.
Some watch collections are legendary by design, with brands doing everything in their power to push the message. Others, like theIWC Da Vinci Replicacollection sort of stumble into the status, sometimes years after the saga began.
One is a 36mm time-and-date automatic and the other is also 36mm, without date but with a moon phase indication in addition. The moon phase model will put you in mind immediately of the IWC Replica Watches Portofino Automatic Moon Phase 37, which is one mm larger. Indeed, the calibre here is the same calibre 35800.
As far as look and feel go though, the new Edition IWC Copy Watches are unabashed throwbacks to the 1980s, with larger bezels, discreetly recessed inner dials, swiveling or articulated lugs, bulbous crowns, slim lance-shaped hands, Arabic numerals, and silver-plated dials.
There are a variety of different iterations on just these basic novelties, AAA IWC Replica including plain stainless steel, diamond-set stainless steel and 18k red gold. In addition, the Automatic 36 is also available with a steel bracelet and an 18k red gold bracelet.
Sometimes, new watches fit the novelty bill to a tee, as in the case of the IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Replica“Sharks”. Surely, offering a watch as part of a package with a book, all presented in a bite-proof metal shark cage, must count as novel!
Obviously, the Chronograph Edition “Sharks” is the same Aquatimer we looked at a couple of years ago, with some tweaks. The IWC Replica Watches features a hammerhead shark engraving on the solid case back. We’ll revisit some of the other details in a bit.
IWC Replica describes his work here as having “an unprecedented degree of technical perfection”, which probably explains why the Schaffhausen-based watchmaker was drawn to him.
Aside from the engraving on the case back, the grey dial is meant to evoke the distinctive colouring of many shark species. In terms of hands, hour markers, numerals, functions, and movement, this edition is the same as the standardLimited Edition IWC Copy Aquatimer Chronograph.
