IWC Replica Portofino Hand-Wound Monopusher Chronograph Watch Hands-On

In the metal, this 45mm-wide IWC Replica PortofinoWatch is large, but far from brash or blingy. Available in either 18k white or red gold, the white gold model has a slate colored dial with a brushed surface treatment, while the red gold has a silvery white dial.

Despite its modular architecture, the IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Monopusher Chronograph is only 13mm thick, making it no more cumbersome on wrist than most simple sport watches. The Swiss IWC Fake Watches movement is treated to a lovely finish that accents its open design and lack of a winding rotor. With an index-less balance and Breguet spring, the 59360 features vertical striping and beveled edges on the main plates.

The dial design is delicate and direct, using a successful mix of classic and more modern elements. Legibility is strong and the view of the dial is preserved with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The markers are applied and catch the light with a glimmer that is nicely matched by the Cheap IWC Replica tone and color of the precious metal case options.

On wrist, the IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Monopusher feels like a power move. It’s large but classic and the more complicated layout of the dial is belied by the simple lines of the case, which is wide but features minimal lugs. The thin bezel further enlarges the overpowering visual effect of the wide dial, while the clean lines and non-cluttered layout save the IWC Replica Portofino from being too much, aesthetically.

Naturally, the mono-pusher chronograph movement omits the double-pushers commonly seen on other stopwatches, as now the single pusher for the chronograph has been integrated into the already rather large crown. Consequently, the iwc replica watches for sale crown-pusher piece protrudes considerably from the already massive case and hence yes, from time to time, the crown and the pusher will dig into the skin on your wrist.
