The 1990s were not the glory days of what you might call mechanical tabulation. After the damage from the quartz crisis, Swiss companies are just starting to re-emerge and even historically important brands are still struggling to find their footing. Now, that doesn’t mean that good watchmaking didn’t happen, or that awesome designs weren’t made, it just means that for every truly great watch, there are many styles you can completely forget. Undoubtedly, one of the most handsome, important and interesting wristwatches of the decade is fake IWC Ceramic Fliegerchronograph ref. 3705 – if you’re a true watch nerd, here’s what you definitely need to know.
The ref. 3705 is a watch set between The tradition of IWC and The modern watchmakers at The turn of The 21st century. It’s a classic aviator chronograph, available in many ways, though date and date displays make it more consumer-friendly, with a diameter of 39mm that almost anyone can wear. However, it uses a matte black ceramic case – the first of its kind for IWC pilots (the brand first used DaVinci’s calendar material several years ago – to give the watch a more aggressive and tactical feel. This will extend to the Top Gun series of aviator watches, not to mention the myriad watches made by IWC Replica Swiss Movement Watches using unconventional materials from titanium to bronze. The watch spans vintage/modern collections in the right way, both in terms of time and style. Style, looks as good today as it did in 1994.
Another new IWC replica watches launch announced today, also from the Portugieser line, is this new stainless-steel automatic product. It comes with a silver-plated dial and rhodium-plated hands, and works well with the selected case material. This is a good update on the familiar design in the gorgeous Portugieser collection. The 9 o ‘clock small second hand is balanced by the 3 o ‘clock power storage indicator. Given that it is an automatic up-chain watch with an internal IWC movement, the power reserve indicated is more than seven days. In addition, the core is designed with the company’s Pellaton winding system designed to maximize the transfer and storage of energy in the barrel through the movement of the rotor.
It is a handsome stainless steel watch with an equally well-designed internal automatic movement and extended power reserve. If there is any doubt that cheap fake IWC watches will make an elegant watch, then such a simple wine merchant should give it a rest. Now, for many readers, the 42.3 mm case will be worn on the larger side, but that’s a little different from using a Portugieser. This is an early development of the watch, the use of an ultra-large watch pocket watch movement. If this guy is too big for you, but you’re interested in the overall aesthetic, the company’s Portofino collection might be worth a look.
