IWC has reimagined their Da Vinci line, foregoing the recent tonneau shape for a more classic round case. The new IWC Da Vinci Automatic Replica Watches doesn’t hearken too far back, though, drawing clear inspiration from the Da Vinci SL Automatic from the late 1990s.
The “female target group as main focus of interest” at IWC with the Da Vinci collection this year, this 40mm IWC Replica Watches is released alongside the 36mm IWC Da Vinci Automatic 36 watch. The model we are covering in this article is 40mm wide and 10mm thin, with a 30m water-resistance. Large enough for him, small enough for her, I suppose. The automatic IWC 35111 movement inside is a base Sellita SW300-1 with 42 hours of power reserve operating at 4Hz.
One other thing that may not be immediately apparent about the Cheap IWC Replica is the fact that the lugs are articulating, or hinged. Basically, that means that you should get a very comfortable fit on your wrist, even if your wrists are on the smaller side. I’ve experienced this type of lug on other watches, and it does make for a better fit – at 40mm, of course, there will be no worries about “lug overhang” anyway.
It does put a question in my mind, though – what designer thought that this was the right positioning to put the date window in? It’s simply jarring. Not that it’s at 6 o’clock, but the fact that it does not follow with the Fake IWC Watches circle that the numeral indices are creating. Even if they had aligned the top edge of the date window with the line drawn from the tops of the 7 and the 5, I could maybe let it slide.
Updated on the IWC Portugieser Replica Automatic IW5007’s 31-jeweled and decorated movement is the self-winding mechanism: it is a pretty much wear-free system thanks to its use of ceramic parts. There are many exciting changes in comparison to the last 5001 iteration, and most of these changes really happen with the more open architecture, skeletonized rotor, how the watch winds, the layout of the bridges – and now you can both see and really feel how smooth the Pellaton automatic winding system is.
Despite its generous 42.3mm case and large dial space,IWC Portugieser Automatic IW5007 maintains its dressy-elegant looks. Notably, the IW5007 also became a bit thicker since the last update, inflating to 14.5mm in total thickness, compared to the original at 13.9mm thick. Cheap IWC Replica has closed the space between the lugs and strap, as well as reduced the length of the lugs slightly all the while making them more burly.
Speaking of casual, that was my initial goal, so I took the wonderfully done 22mm black alligator leather strap and swapped it for a dark navy steerhide leather with off-white full stitch from Europelli straps. I’m a big guy with 8 1/2″ wrists, so before I purchased the IWC Replica Watches I was concerned that 42.3mm would be too small, as my “sweet spot” in any timepiece genre lies between 44-45mm. Well, while it might seem large for small-wristed collectors, it was a solid fit for my larger wrist.
The Fake IWC Watches Portugieser Automatic IW5007 also has a convex, dual-antireflective-coated sapphire crystal, as well as a sapphire crystal on the case-back. The decoration of the lugs, bezel, and case-back consist of polished surfaces with the sides of the case done in a finely satin-finished look. Curved lugs and curved spring bars really make it a more streamlined look as the strap meets the case much more effectively, making for a more integrated look when compared to the 5001.
Under the dial, this watch shares the same movement as the regular production IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport Replica Watches or the Portugieser Chronograph, which is the in-house Caliber 89361. An automatic chronograph equipped with 68 hours of power reserve, this movement offers flyback functionality, a feature that fits right in with the motorsport racing theme as it is used to time successive intervals of time like race laps. It also has the unique hour and minute totalizer at 12 o’clock which is intended to make the chronograph reading more intuitive.
The dial is silver plated with a zero-to-sixty-styled index, another of the many motorsport-inspired design changes. On that note, IWC Replica Watch has said that the color scheme of red, white, and anthracite was meant to reflect the color scheme found on race tracks around the world, i.e., red and white for the curbs and anthracite for the asphalt. All the hands related to the chronograph function are in red, while the ones dedicated to telling time are in black. The dial is completed by a date window at 3 o’clock and in a final touch to the motorsport theme, a tachymeter scale around the edge – a feature that, while not particularly useful in this day and age, was definitely expected on such a Cheap IWC Replica.
All of this is housed in a 44mm titanium case rated for 120m of water-resistance, with a screw down crown and rectangular pushers. At 15.9mm Fake IWC Watches thick and with Grade 5 titanium which has the appearance of stainless steel, you’d be forgiven for expecting this to be a heavy watch. However, one of the primary benefits of titanium is that it is a very light yet strong metal. While the use of titanium is not unique to this limited edition, it definitely fits right in with the idea of performance motorsports where lightweight, strong materials are highly prized. The case has brushed sides, polished front and back bezels and polished crown guards and pushers.
