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.
