Ceramic Meets Titanium in IWC’s Pilot’s Replica Watch Family

Humans have a remarkable capacity to harness those materials found in the natural world and make things of immense beauty. Raw materials become a vehicle for human expression. Such an example is ceramic: a material which can be both fragile when used to make delicate porcelain, and sturdy when found in the bricks which form the architectural landscape of our cities.

The Replica Watches considerable 44mm diameter holds inside a robust automatic 79420 Calibre movement which spins at a frequency of 4hz and offers a reliable power reserve of 44 hours.

The dial features a typical Fake IWC day-date display, chronograph functions with hours, minutes and seconds, and an all important split-seconds hand – the feature which gives the watch its ‘Double Chronograph’ name.

The close family that is their Pilot’s Copy Watch Collection includes the Spitfire, Le Petit Prince, Classic and Top Gun models. Whilst the veritable pilot’s watch is more likely to be found sitting on the wrist of an aspirational aviator rather than a professional pilot, the quality, precision and sophistication of these timepieces is higher above the clouds than it has ever been before.

The IWC Portofino classic dress replica watch

Released on the first day of Watches & Wonders, the new timepiece welcomes the introduction of the newly developed Replica IWC-manufactured 59220 caliber, which powers the latest and most practical Portofino of the year.

Combining technical expertise and timeless appeal, the Day & Date features a sophisticated new dial with a large date display just underneath 12 o’clock, as well as a day sub-dial at 3 o’clock. Perhaps the most practical of functions, the date can also be the most cumbersome.

It can also add clutter to the dial, and make it difficult for the user to read his watch with just a glimpse. However, there is none of that in the Replica Watches Portofino Hand-Wound Day & Date. The date is given plenty of space to breathe in the top half of the dial, just beneath the Portofino’s iconic XII-hour marker.

Measuring 45 mm on the wrist, the Portofino Hand-Wound Day & Date is a classic dress IWC Replica Watches very much tailored to the taste of the modern man. It wears exactly the same as the IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days with the added benefit of the day display at 3 o’clock.

Powering the watch is the new caliber 59220, a hand-wound movement made in-house which can run a full 192 hours with no need for any intervention. A power reserve at 9 o’clock serves as a gentle reminder.
