When an IWC Portuguese Replica Watch is truly unique it is even more rewarding to wear than usual. Interesting pieces of the watch that standout and newly discovered features after wearing it overtime are part of the experience. This is exactly the feeling and experience that you get when wearing an iwc replica watch. Their pieces are unique in more than one way and their exclusivity lets you know that you are wearing a piece of art.
When I first put this portuguese watch on I actually thought that they may have forgotten to install the second hand. But as I started to notice the minimalistic style of the watch I realized that it wasnt supposed to be there. Over time I came to actually enjoy not having it there. When setting the time you dont have to worry about making sure the seconds are perfect. Whiles I didn’t miss the seconds, I do have to say that I did miss the date but I appreciate the absence of it as a design feature. The portuguese replica watch overall also has a slower pace which makes you enjoy the non-animated features of the watch even more.
The face is easy to read and lacks all sorts of extra minute markers that you come accustomed to over time. The lume is applied to hands, all the writing on the face, and even the model logo.
The rounded case is a bit tall due to its varying layers but is still very comfortable on the wrist. The overall touch and design of the case is very smooth and fits together well. My absolute favorite part of the case has to be the kauri wood inlay, its just that extra touch that really tops this entire piece off.
The Miyota Authentic Movement has a great power reserve of 40 hours, I never once had this IWC Pilot Replica watch go dead on me. This movement does freewheel in one direction and winds in the other. In comparison to the ETA Valjoux 7750 which does the same, its more balanced and doesn’t vibrate when freewheeling. The screw-down crown is easy to access because it is a bit larger in diameter. It also hugs the case well when screwed down which keeps it out of the way when wearing it and bending your wrist.
This band is really in a league of its own. Utilizing the same leather on the front and back makes it very thick but even more flexible than usual. Coupled with it’s 24mm width you actually don’t notice the iwc pilot watch as much on your wrist because it fits so well.
Utilizing a combination of deep red and black also gives the IWC Portofino Replica a bit of color from the black that is mostly seen throughout. The wide, one-piece keeper is a great feature that prevents you from always looking for the second keeper that tends to work its way towards the case on most watches.
The buckle also deserves mention as well. It’s very hefty and mates to the band nicely. It really fells like it has been engineered to fit correctly rather and a piece of metal that has been bent to fit more than one watch. The brushed finish and logo also look great.
You can see and feel New Zealand in this iwc portofino watch and that’s what makes it so special. This really is one of the most unique replica watches that I have reviewed and I really look forward to seeing more from IWC in the future.
