IWC Portugeiser Automatic and Chronograph “Blue Panda” Editions

There has been the Type XX update, Replica 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 IWC Portugeiser Automatic IW371620 and Portugeiser Chronograph IW500715, now available in “Blue Panda” colourways.

Essentially, the bicompax layout of subdials on both Best IWC Replica 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 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 Copy IWC Watches have blue Arabic numerals and blue feuille hands. While they’re very different watchmakers, the aesthetic of these IWCs 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 Swiss IWC Portugeiser Automatic IW371620 Replica 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 Automatic 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 Portugeiser Chronograph IW500715 Replica Swiss Made 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 Best Performing IWC Portofino Chronograph 39 Replica Watches

In addition to launching exciting watches like the Replica Big Pilot’s Top Gun Edition Ceramic, IWC has been quietly revamping a great many of their collections. Foremost among the revamped models is the Mark XX, which received some nice quality-of-life upgrades. The next watch to receive a similar update is the IWC Portofino Chronograph 39 IW391502.

It’s an unexpected choice from Best IWC Replica Watches because the 39mm editions only debuted last year, in fact we covered the launch here. The new watch is virtually identical to those 2021 editions, featuring the same dial design and case, but this time in monochromatic silver white.

What’s new is the movement inside, which has been updated from the Copy IWC Watches For Sale 79350 modified Valjoux 7750 to the in-house IWC 69355. Its 46-hour power reserve is an improvement on the previous calibre but over all it’s very similar with 30-minute timer and small seconds functions in addition to hours, minutes and chronograph seconds.

The New Quality IWC Portofino Perpetual Calendar IW344601 and IW344602

Most people associate IWC with pilot’s replica watches, which makes total sense due to their rich aviation history and classics like the Mark and Big Pilot series. But with their Portugieser and Portofino collections, IWC prove they still know how to appeal to dressier sensibilities. The latest duo of Portofino watches, the IWC Portofino Perpetual Calendar IW344601 and IW344602, are great examples of this.

The case

Unabashedly a dressier watch, each of the 40mm cases, stainless steel and 18K 5N gold, are entirely mirror polished. A super thin bezel, results in a larger dial that offers the perpetual calendar complication more real estate in the name of legibility – a core principle of any High Quality IWC Replica Watches design.

The IWC Portofino Perpetual Calendars are both 12.7mm thick, with a highly box-domed sapphire crystal for a pseudo vintage effect. That being said, as a dress or smart casual watch it may have made more sense to have a flat sapphire crystal that would have given the Top Swiss IWC Replica Watches a thinner presence. Nonetheless, 12.7mm is by no means super thick, and most sleeve cuffs should find the thickness of this 60 metre water-resistant case agreeable.

The dial

With such a high complication, balance is created by having a less complicated dial. The silver-plated finish on both 1:1 Replica Watches dials allows the perpetual calendar to be the star of the show and is very easy to read and use. Working from the outboard in, you have a printed outer minutes track in black. A step inwards, you will find case-matching applied hour indices. Next, you have the perpetual calendar registers.

At 3′ are the day and leap year indications, at 6′ you have the month and moon phase indications, and at 3′ the calendar date. Each of the registers have a stepped indication ring pertaining to the Best IWC Replica Watchescalendar information, and a blued sub-hand, which matches the blued stick central second hand, to convey the information. Lastly, the central hours and minutes leaf handset are rendered in a case-matching tone – gold-plated for the 18K 5N gold model and rhodium-plated for the stainless-steel model.

The strap

Each Cheap IWC Replica is outfitted on a blue calf leather strap with a pebbled texture, tone on tone stitching, and case-matching pin buckle closure. I personally support this move, as a blue strap ensures your watch can go with pretty much any wardrobe colour and it also ties into the blued hands. With 60 metres of water-resistance, you could get away with a leather-look simulating rubber strap from a brand like Jean Rousseau were you to try and swim with it. But, you are probably better off leaving your aquatic adventures to your sportier timepieces in this instance.

The movement

Inside the AAA IWC Replica Watches, beneath an exhibition caseback is the IWC-manufactured automatic calibre 82650, adorned with circular Côtes de Genève, perlage, and a semi-openworked rotor to avoid obstructing too much of the view beneath. The calibre, which further refines what Kurt Klaus initially developed, offers 60 hours of power reserve off the wrist on a full wind, further supported by the highly efficient Pellaton winding system while worn.

It is no secret perpetual calendars from venerated Swiss brands can command quite a high cost befitting of a high complication, but fortunately Fake IWC Watches has brought forth steel and gold options to create two points of entry into the collection. The sober no-nonsense aesthetic by no means reinvents the wheel, but for those looking for a timeless look that will never go out of fashion, from a brand with strong roots with such a complication, these IWC Portofinio Perpetual Calendars may just be for you.
