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 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.
The Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon Replica Watch is significant because it is the first time IWC has combined a perpetual calendar with a tourbillon on the dial. The watch comes in a 45mm wide Portugieser-style case, which IWC fans will instantly recognize from its distinctive short and curved lugs as well as the chunky knurled crown. Paired with a black Santoni alligator strap and water resistant to just 30m, it goes without saying that it should be kept away from water.
The Fake IWC Watches dial is white and features a lacquered finish with large black Arabic numerals printed in the signature font of IWC’s Portugieser watches. Sizable heat-treated leaf-shaped hour and minute hands and a simple railroad-style minutes track ensure time can be easily read.
At 9 o’clock, you have the sub-dial that indicates the day, and at 3 o’clock you have the sub-dials that show the date and power reserve. At 6 o’clock, there’s a month indicator and moon phase display, and to the left of it at around 8 o’clock you have the year indicator. Finally, there’s the flying tourbillon that makes a single rotation every minute at 12 o’clock.
The other tourbillon Copy watch that IWC has specially prepared for its 150th anniversary is the Portugieser Constant-Force Tourbillon Edition “150 Years.” This comes in a slightly larger 46mm wide Portugieser style case and is only available in platinum. Water resistance is a mere 30m, and the watch comes paired with a black alligator strap by Santoni.
The movement in this piece is the hand-wound IWC Replica Watches US, which beats at a leisurely 2.5Hz and features 96 hours of power reserve. The movement can be admired through a sapphire display caseback and features an inlaid insignia that celebrates the 150th anniversary of the brand.
