IWC Replica Upgrades The Portugieser Chronograph

For over 20 years, the IWC Replica Portugieser Chronograph has been an elegantly sporty cornerstone to IWC’s product lineup. For the majority of that time, however, the average Portugieser Chronograph model has been powered by a modified version of a readily available caliber from Valjoux or Sellita.

While in-house movements have been available in limited edition or high-end IWC Replica Watch models before, for 2020 the brand has added some serious value to the model line in the form of the Caliber 69355 automatic power-plant.

Visually, this new series of models is nearly unchanged from the classic Portugieser look with a IWC Replica 41mm case sporting simple lines and broad-shouldered lugs. Around back, the new models differentiate themselves with a sapphire display back, showcasing the new Caliber 69355 and its solid array of decorations.

The Portugieser formula also remains intact on the dial, where the leaf hands, airy spacious dial surface, and signature cut-off applied numerals at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock are available in white, sunburst blue, or charcoal gray. Standout variants include the iconic nautical-inspired white dial with blue hands and applied numerals, as well as the darkly handsome gray dial with gold hands and numerals.

All six of the new Reference 3716 Fake IWC Watches models are fitted with luxe alligator leather straps, colored to accent the dial styles in shades of navy, black, and deep mahogany brown.

IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch Chronograph Ref. 3706

These days, having such a no-nonsense instrument Replica Watches measure 39mm-wide can almost come off as a statement on one’s secureness. In actuality, the 39mm-wide and 14.6mm-thick case can best be described as “democratically sized,” as it looks as good on my 7.5-inch wrist as it would on a wrist that’s a bit bigger or one that’s a bit smaller. The case is on the thicker side due to the anti-magnetic soft iron cage housed within, which most everyone familiar with IWC pilot’s copy watches is accustomed to.

Though this version doesn’t have the tritium dial, the lumed hands and indices are set over a matte black dial that enhances legibility, while the Fake Watches 12-hour chronograph sub-dials and slender Arabic hour numerals are also done in white and easy to read. Ditto, the day and date windows at 3 o’clock have black text against a white background.

The 44-hour power reserve movement operates at 28,800 vph and can be likened to some steed that never says die.And the quick-adjust for the day and date is simple and foolproof, operated by the crown that sports that classic old IWC Replica fish logo.

The Fake IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Ref. 3706 undoubtedly marks a high point for pilot’s watches and chronographs in the post-Quartz revolution years in which it was introduced. An exercise in purpose-driven design, I really just find it to be one cool watch.

IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition

This is a massive replica watch coming in at 46.5mm with a height of 15.6mm, but that has always been a part of its appeal. Compared to this same model in bronze, the dark colour scheme gives the watch a more contemporary, stealth mood.

The Replica Watches case is crafted in matte black zirconium oxide and houses the sophisticated in-house perpetual calendar module that automatically detects the different number of days in a month and won’t need adjusting until 2100.

The titanium caseback has a sapphire window revealing the calibre 52615, part of the new generation of movements introduced in 2015 by IWC Replica. An update of the 7-day automatic movement, this new calibre still retains the same amount of energy but is now delivered by a twin-barrel architecture.

IWC Replica Watch It is equipped with several ceramic wheels, which are more wear-resistant than traditional alloys: the winding pawls and the automatic wheel are made of black ceramic while the skeletonised rotor features a golden inlay with two chequered flags of F1 races.
