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.
The IWC Ingeniuer Chronograph Replica Watches features a rose gold case, the IWC Ingeniuer Chronograph Edition “Rudolf Caracciola” is in a stainless steel case, and the IWC Ingeniuer Chronograph Edition “W 125” is a titanium version. These last two will each have a 750-watch run.
The new 42mm-wide and 15mm-high case features two totalizers, small seconds dial, and tachymeter on the outer edge. US IWC Replica says this design is inspired by the dashboard of a vintage sports car – but whatever its design roots are, it is a distinctly new design when compared to the Gerald Genta-designed case of previous IWC Ingenieurs. Angular lines, integrated lugs, and crown protectors are gone. No bezel screws, rubber, plastic, or anything of the sort.
Aesthetic reboot aside, there’s a new movement here too, with the in-house IWC Replica caliber. This is an automatic chronograph movement that has date, stopwatch, and small hacking seconds. The movement is made up of 200 parts and measures 30mm wide by 7.9mm high. It operates at a frequency of 28,800vph and has a 46-hour power reserve.
The black dial with rose gold and red gold has pretty classic, old-school good looks, and I think 42mm Cheap IWC Replica is the ideal case size, not something like 46mm. Personally, I don’t love the red used on the subdials – I understand the racing and automotive inspiration, but it looks a little confused to me.
On a brown calfskin strap, the IWC Fake Watches 42mm case is done in stainless steel with a slate-colored dial. The hands and appliqués are in rhodium and, as I mentioned before, the red on the sub dials looks pretty good in these press photos.
IWC today is launching essentially the same watch with a few basic aesthetic tweaks along with three completely new models – a time-only, two chronograph models, and a chronograph perpetual calendar – in what is now a new IWC Ingenieur Replica Replica Watches.
All this was to say that things are going back to basics in the same way as we discovered with the old-new Da Vinci: the Best IWC Ingenieur Automatic 40mm Watches, closest to the original among the four new models, offers a good conservative size with an “IWC caliber 35111” beating inside. The 35111 is a base Sellita SW300 which in turn is an ETA 2892 clone.
The US IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Replica Watches are a modest 42mm wide, clad in stainless steel or 18k red gold and sport what is an ample 120m depth rating. Inside is what we’re told to be an all-new movement called the IWC Caliber 69375.The IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport is a titanium-clad, 44mm-wide alternative to the aforementioned triple-register sporting a more complex IWC Caliber 89361. It offers a more impressive 68 hours of power reserve, a more advanced automatic winding system and the more sophisticated display of chronograph hours and minutes on one sub-dial at 12 o’clock.
The heavy-hitter in the new-for-2017 collection is the IWC Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month, a 45mm-wide and 17.5mm-thick piece in 18k red gold, based on what is a truly impressive movement, the IWC Replica Swiss Made Caliber 89800. Built on the same 89000 foundations as the Chronograph Sport, this piece further adds a perpetual calendar to the mix, spiced up with digital indications for the month and date at 2 and 10 o’clock, respectively. A neat design tweak is how the apertures are framed by what appear to be sub-dials – although the functionless tracks on their periphery might come across as a design no-no in the eyes of watch design purists.
This latest extension of the round-again Cheap IWC Replica is a sensible move unless you are one of those last year thinking that was a rare opportunity. From the 40mm-wide automatics through the chronographs, these make for a solid core collection while the perpetual calendar continues to impress with that special movement. The IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport very explicitly lacks colors rendering it more safe than exciting of a design.
