Meet The New IWC Portugieser Replica

The story on the iconic IWC Portugieser replica watch is one that is well known in enthusiasts’ circles. Today, IWC introduces an update of their entire Portugieser collection.

IWC Portugieser Automatic

The brand from Schaffhausen introduces two pillars in the Fake Portugieser Automatic collection, 5 reference IW3583 variations in a 40.4mm case, and two new IW5007 variations in a 42.3mm case. If you like things clean and simple, the 40.4mm IW3583 models are interesting to consider.

They feature IWC Replica caliber 82200 movement that has the famous Pellaton winding system and a power reserve of 60 hours. Certain parts of this movement are made of ceramic, to prevent them from wearing out. The movement can be admired through the sapphire caseback of the watch.

IWC Portugieser Chronograph

One of the most successful Portugieser models is the chronograph. IWC now introduced three new editions, with some interesting color choices for the dials. Blue, green, and burgundy red. It seems that the burgundy trend, that was started last year with Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso, is doing quite well.

This 41mm diameter watch uses an IWC caliber 69355 movement. A two-register chronograph with central seconds and a minute counter at 12 o’clock. The green and burgundy dial versions are in a steel case, whereas the blue dial version comes in a 18K gold case. This 5N 18K gold version is a boutique edition.

The IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch Automatic Spitfire

The name “Spitfire” first appeared at the turn of the millennium.Replica IWC began manufacturing a series of pilots’ watches named after the legendary aircraft in 2003. With its pale dial, it was regarded as “the more elegant Mark,” but it was somewhat overshadowed by the 14th incarnation of the classic pilots’ watch.

The new Pilot’s Fake Watch Automatic Spitfire is equipped with new manufacture Caliber 32110. IWC presents two versions: our tested watch with stainless-steel case, black dial and green textile strap; and a version with a bronze case, green dial and dark brown calfskin strap.

The matte stainless-steel case with its narrow, steep bezel and massive screw-in back has a moderate diameter of 39 mm and is therefore one mm smaller than the case of the IWC Mark XVIII Replica. The height is 10.86 mm, which gives it a sporty look and is also an appropriate thickness for a classic pilots’ watch. Manufacture Caliber 32110 contributes to the case’s height: the movement is 4.2 mm thick. Its diameter is 28.2 mm.

The movement cannot be seen through the opaque double back, but it’s nonetheless designed in the characteristic Swiss IWC Replica manner. Typical details are robust bridges adorned with circular Geneva waves, various circular graining patterns and, above all, the openwork rotor with IWC’s logo.

The Fake IWC green textile band, which is lined with leather, seems to refer to this globe-girdling airborne adventure. The strap is inspired by the color codes of the old fighter plane and keeps the watch attached to its wearer’s wrist – reliably, stylishly and idiosyncratically.

IWC Portugieser Yacht Collection Reboots with Chronographs, Moon & Tide Edition

IWC Schaffhausen Replica has put the spotlight on its elegant Portugieser family in 2020, and as part of its new lineup has also unveiled the first new models in the nautical-inspired Portugieser Yacht Club sub-series since its last revamp in 2010.

Measuring 44.5 mm in diameter and 14.4 mm thick, the case houses behind its navy blue dial the in-house, automatic Caliber 82835, enhanced here for the first time with a tides display function. Developed for the Swiss IWC Replica yachtsmen whose passion inspired the collection, its useful features include the subdial at 6 o’clock which indicates the expected times for the next high and low water, along with the double moon phase display at 12 o’clock, which shows spring and neap tides as well as information about the strength of the current tides.The plating on the hour and minute hands and the hour appliqués are in the same 5N rose gold as the case.

The automatic Caliber 82835 beats in full view behind a sapphire caseback. Outfitted with the all-new module for the tide displays and incorporating IWC Replica US Watches Pellaton winding system with high-tech ceramic components, it stores a respectable power reserve of 68 hours. The watch is mounted on a blue textile strap that echoes the maritime theme of the dial, and of the watch itself.

The latest versions of the Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph include two in stainless steel cases with steel bracelets — one with a silvered dial with blue highlights, the other, a blue dial with white details — and one two-tone steel-and-rose-gold model with a silvered dial, whose gold details include the hands, hour numerals, bezel, and the center links of the bracelet.

The Fake IWC Portugieser cases measure 44.6 mm, the same as the Moon & Tides model, and the dial layout showcases the user-friendly chronograph readout at 12 o’clock, which tallies both elapsed hours and minutes on a single subdial.

The History of the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch

IWC’s Big Pilot’s Replica Watch became an instant classic when it was re-released in 2002. But its history stretches much further back in time.

Here, Swiss IWC Replica is resuming its original diameter of 55 mm. With beige luminous material and a matte case, the newcomer’s style comes very close to its predecessor, even if it has a small seconds subdial; the original model had a central seconds hand.

IWC recently unveiled the Big Pilot’s Watch Heritage in a classical diameter of 46 mm.All are equipped with a soft-iron inner case to protect the movement against magnetic fields – the predecessor lacked this practical detail. The 48-mm version has a little window in the caseback, which offers a view of the balance and, according to Fake IWC, scarcely detracts from the protection against magnetism.

This line also includes a version that features the useful complication of a digital annual calendar: the 46-mm Big Pilot’s Watch Annual Calendar Spitfire is powered by manufacture Caliber 52850, which amasses a seven- day power reserve and can be admired through the sapphire back.

The Top Gun Big Pilot’s Watch models combine a matte-black ceramic case and a textile-look wristband for a contemporary military touch that nonetheless preserves the other traditional characteristics. Here, too, a Cheap IWC Replica Watch is available in the classical 46-mm size. The titanium back bears the Top Gun emblem as a relief engraving. The wristband looks like it’s textile but is actually made of patterned calfskin for greater durability.

Swiss IWC Replica US Da Vinci Automatic Watch

The new IWC Da Vinci Automatic Replica watches US revive some elements of its look. The new models have a high-polish case wrapping around the dial, with leaf-shaped hands that are finished in the same tone that the polished numerals on the dial have. I find myself preferring the slate dial, but I do rather like the blued seconds hand on the silver dial, as it’s a nice bit of color.

One other thing that may not be immediately apparent about the IWC Da Vinci Automatic 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 Best IWC Replica, and it does make for a better fit – at 40mm, of course, there will be no worries about “lug overhang” anyway.

As for the overall look of the Swiss IWC Replica Da Vinci Automatic, it’s cohesive, and it’s a solid, classic look. Then again, it also reminds me somewhat of a certain Timex design. This is not to disparage either brand, but the numerals do evoke that association. Naturally, if you had the IWC Da Vinci Automatic and a Weekender next to each other, you’d have no trouble telling them apart, both in weight and build quality. In terms of the overall aesthetic of the Fake IWC Da Vinci Automatic, though, it is not putting grail visions in my head.

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 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. But this… this does not look to me like the refinement I expect of a luxury IWC Replica Watches. It causes it to look like a case that was fitted with too small of a movement, resulting in the date window being too far inward.

Swiss IWC Da Vinci Automatic Replica Watches Hands-On

In recent years, IWC has followed the tradition of choosing one of their collections for a complete refresh. Last year, we saw a diverse new set of Pilot’s watches added to the IWC catalog, but 2017 is all about the complete overhaul of their Da Vinci collection. We brought you news of the IWC Da Vinci Automatic Replica US Watches not long ago and, when compared to something like the IWC Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph, with its revamped circular case, it really shows you the range of changes coming into the lineup. With the basic automatic model, though, IWC is attempting to capture the spirit of the earlier 1980s Da Vinci timepieces while presenting a Swiss IWC Replica that is designed for and marketed to both men and women.

The IWC Da Vinci Automatic is sized at 40mm, which by modern standards can often be considered a unisex size. It’s slim at 10mm thick and the proportions are ideal for a Fake IWC watch that’s meant for both men and women. I, for one, don’t have much of an issue with a 40mm case and find these measurements to exist somewhere within the sweet spot in terms of comfort and versatility.

The dial is simple, which can mean elegant for some or boring for others. With a time-only layout and unobtrusive date placement at 6 o’clock sitting within a well-contrasted seconds track. Both the silver-plated and slate dial finishes serve as nice backdrops for the polished Arabic numerals and the lancet-shaped hands, which are both color-matched for their respective dials. One thing you’ll notice is that the IWC Replica Swiss Movement Watches twin frame bezel is actually quite pronounced, and its combination with the convex sapphire crystal results in a compact, vintage-inspired look.

A noticeable feature is the set of horn lugs which are hinged and meant to adjust to the wrist’s contours for a closer fit. It’s a great addition for smaller wrists and a design touch that recalls some of the earlier watches in the Da Vinci collection like the IWC Replica Watches Reviews Da Vinci SL Automatic.

We’ve seen IWC do some amazing work with Santoni and naturally, the silver dial Ref. IW356601 comes with a Santoni alligator leather strap fitted with a stainless steel pin buckle. It’s a logical pairing, though you can’t help but love the slightly more aggressive styling of the Ref. IW356602 with its polished stainless steel bracelet meant to match the slate dial. Either of the configurations provides a pleasant wearing experience, and it will be interesting to see how much after-sales support IWC Replica Watches For Sale will provide in the way of compatible strap options.
