IWC Launch Portugeiser Automatic and Chronograph “Blue Panda” Editions

There has been the Type XX update, Big Pilot Annual Calendar Le Petit Prince and Top Gun Ceramics. However, IWC are no one trick pony, also producing a wide range of dress and sports watches. The most popular of which is the Portugeiser with two classic examples, the Luxury IWC Portugeiser Automatic Replica IW371620 and Portugeiser Chronograph IW500715, now available in “Blue Panda” colourways.

The bicompax layout of subdials on both watches are blue, set into a white dial. The two-tone pattern riffs on the traditional black and white of the panda design but with an aquatic edge that gives them the “Blue Panda” nickname. The IWC Portugeiser Automatic Replica Swiss Made features its small seconds and power reserve subdials in a horizontal format while the Chronograph’s 30-minute timer and small seconds are stacked vertically.

Alongside the blue subdials, both versions have blue Arabic numerals and blue feuille hands. While they’re very different watchmakers, the aesthetic of these IWC Best Replica Watches remind me of the Marine Torpilleur Panda from Ulysse Nardin. In fact, looking back at the Marine Torpilleur, it was the last time a watchmaker used the term panda for a blue colourway as well, so the comparison is more apt than I thought.

Ultimately the IWC Portugeiser Automatic IW371620 and Chronograph IW500715 “Blue Pandas” are simple and attractive recolours. Which means the specs will be familiar to anyone who knows the collection. For the Swiss Replica Watches that means a 42.3mm steel case housing the calibre 52010 automatic movement with pellaton winding and a 7-day power reserve. Then the Chronograph has a 41mm diameter case and the calibre 69355, a column wheel chronograph movement with automatic winding and a power reserve of 46-hours.

The IWC Portugeiser Chronograph IW500715 Replica is presented on a sporty, blue rubber strap while the Automatic IW371620 is on blue alligator leather. Between the difference in strap and substantial difference in movement, the prices of the two watches also differs dramatically.

The IWC Portugieser Automatic IW500715 is handsome and powerful

The New IWC Portugieser Chronograph IW371620 Replica, a solid summer watch that brings the youthful summer vibes to a classic and storied collection and manufacture. But a chronograph is not always everyone’s flavour. Unless you are dead-set on using a mechanical and analogue timekeeper for timing cars on the racetrack, or more realistically boiling pasta to ensure it is perfectly al dente, the recently unveiled Cheap IWC Portugieser Automatic IW500715 Replica may be more your speed.

My larger wristed friends often tell me they feel dressier watches are too small or too formal. Well if that is the case for you, or you enjoy handsome and elegant watches with very long power reserves, then it is worth digging into the IWC Portugieser Automatic IW500715.

The case

The IWC Replica Watches larger 42.3mm stainless-steel case, 14.1mm thick, definitely skews towards a sportier size. But its handsome and lume-less aesthetic will leave onlookers wondering whether or not the watch is cased in stainless-steel, white gold, or platinum. The entire front of the case is mirror polished, putting forth a more, well…. polished look forward. This maintains the dockside elegance aura the Portugieser collection was born from. The case flanks, however, are richly brushed across from lug-to-lug – which for the record is just a hair above 50mm, so the IW500715 is more wearable than you might expect.

The dial

The dial of the IWC Portugieser Automatic Replica, like the IW371620, has a porcelain-like look. White lacquered, the dial takes up a lot of real estate – the polished bezel not so much sloped, and more so cupping the dial with the metal heading straight down. This causes the watch to look larger than it actually is, but, in actuality, is a design choice to maintain the legibility factor this collection requires.

Hints of blue create a youthful balance to the dial, with two registers, a central handset, and applied indices all executed in blue. At 9′ is a running seconds register, and at 3′ a power reserve register, like a gas tank, conveys how fully wound the watch is. Symmetrically splitting the registers at the 6′ position is a black on white date complication, and, at 12′, IWC Schaffhausen Replica Watches For Sale Near Me branding also in black.

The strap

In line with a dressy timepiece, which is only 30 metres water-resistant, the 1:1 IWC Portugeiser Replica is appropriately outfitted on a blue alligator leather strap with a case-matching IWC deployment clasp. Definitely hard to beat this factory pairing, but should you want to explore more options, factory or otherwise, the lug width is 22mm.

The movement

Inside the watch, beneath a sapphire exhibition caseback, is the automatic IWC-manufacutred calibre 52010. I really like the fact that the calibre takes up the entire caseback, further justifying its size as well as making it feel like the calibre was born bespoke for this watch. It is nicely, albeit industrially, decorated, with circular Côtes de Genève and perlage, but Super Clone IWC watch aficionados will be more impressed with its technical side – offering a full week of power reserve (168 hours) on a full wind. And, considering it is an automatic, so long as you wear the watch once a week you will rarely have to wind and set the watch.

The verdict

Overall, the IWC Portugieser Automatic Copy Watches Online large diameter may deter some with its 42.3mm size. But, with a lug-to-lug of around 50mm or so the average wrist will be able to tame this handsome white and blue beaut that offers a full week of power reserve. The addition of lume and a more water-resistant case would definitely make this watch have more appeal to the mainstream, but for those who know, or at the very least appreciate its dressier considerations, will surely be happy with the IW500715.

IWC Portugieser Automatic 40 Replica Watch

The exquisite Cheap IWC Portugieser replica watch features a large and eye-catching dial, and from the original model, it has almost always been an oversized hand-wound timepiece.

The new Portugieser Automatic has 4 reference models, three of which are made of stainless steel and one is made of rose gold, with a width of 40.4 mm and a height of 12.4 mm. It is much smaller and slimmer than the popular Portugieser 7-day reference.

It is worth noting that the latest Portugieser is not the first compact self-winding version of the model. In fact, it recalls the lesser and lesser known Portuguese referee. The 3531 watch from 1998 is a 35 mm automatic replica watch.

The movement has a 60-hour power reserve and is equipped with the latest generation of Pellaton winding system, which replaces the push-pull winding pawl in the entry-level automatic calibration device. In addition, the automatic wheels, pawls and cams are all made of wear-resistant ceramics.

Replica IWC Portugieser Automatic 40 Combines Compact Size

The Replica IWC Portugieser Automatic 40 takes the elegant base Portugieser design and adds a new compact 40mm case design and and a manufacture automatic movement for substantial added value.

The 40.4 mm case of the IWC Replica Watch is flowing and classically handsome, if a bit on the thick side at 12.4mm. Available in both stainless steel and 18k 5N red gold, the all-over mirror polish helps to drive home the old-school 1930s inspiration of the design while creating an eye-catching, yet compact presence on the wrist.

While the case and movement might aim to bring innovation to the three-hand Portugieser lineup, the dial of the IWC Portugieser Replica focuses, instead, on distilling the line’s signature elements. The clean, modern applied numerals, leaf hands, and railroad minutes track are all present here, but perhaps lose a touch of their distinctive character in the new more compact size.

These include a blue dial with rhodium hands and indices paired with the stainless steel case, along with a silver dial with 18k gold hands and numerals, available in either the stainless steel or 18k red gold cases.

Fake IWC pairs all four versions of the Portugieser Automatic 40 with an alligator-leather strap in a complementary color — deep tobacco brown for the gold case with gold markers, pure black for both the stainless steel case with gold markers and the blue dial with rhodium markers, and a rich navy for the silver dial and blue markers.

IWC Portugieser Automatic Replica Watch Review

Updated on the IWC Portugieser Automatic IW5007 Replica 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.

The bidirectional winding has improved over the Cheap IWC Replica 5001 with the addition of two black ceramic pawls. Think of them like two ceramic black wings as one will start to release while the other basically pulls, operating with no need for lubrication. This negates concern for wear or any unforeseen weaknesses because, as prone to cracking upon impact ceramic may be, it is unlikely anything will hit these parts that are safely tucked away under the massive sapphire case-back.

As subjective as watch design is, I feel safe in saying that when one gazes upon the IWC Replica Watches‘s dial, there’s just something appropriately satisfying to the eye. It could be thanks to the polished, blued, hand-applied Arabic numerals and index markers that gently float atop a beautiful silvery white dial, or perhaps the slender and timeless feuille hands that provide excellent legibility – though not so much on the black-dial version. Color-matched silver sub-dials peer back at you with their concentric circular texture pattern, with small seconds on the left and the power reserve indicator on the right. The latter offers that lovely red touch, bringing a dash of warmth into the cold white-blue picture.

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 US 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 Portugieser Automatic IW5007 Watch 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.
