AAA Replica IWC Portugieser Collection Reaches New Pinnacles

The new Replica Portugieser Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph (ref. IW3940) and Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon (ref. IW5045).

The Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon has a 45-mm Portugieser case, with curved lugs and a relatively large crown. The AAA IWC Replica Watch dial’s outer edge features a railroad minute track recalling the marine chronometers that originally inspired the series, while applied Arabic numerals decorate most hour positions.

This array of functions is powered by the Fake IWC Caliber 51950, an automatic movement with a gold oscillating rotor, visible via a sapphire caseback. Both the blue-dial and silver-dial versions of the watch are secured to the wrist via a blue alligator leather strap by Santoni.

The IWC Replica logo occupies the 3 o’clock position, while opposite it is a very uncommon retrograde date indicator that might appear at first glance, to the uninformed eye, as a power-reserve display. At 6 o’clock is the openworked tourbillon, outlined with a precious metal ring.

Inside the new Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph is the IWC Fake Watches caliber 89900, made in-house by the brand. Like the movement powering its perpetual calendar-equipped sibling, this watch’s automatic mechanism features a gold oscillating weight, though it offers a smaller power reserve of 68 hours.

The Blue Hour:Review of the IWC Portugieser Chronograph

The IWC Portugieser Chronograph Replica has enjoyed strong popularity for many years and is one of IWC’s bestselling models.IWC responded by filling a 41.5-mm-diameter steel case with Caliber 74H4, which was originally used in pocketwatches and is more than 38 mm in diameter.

This hand-wound wristwatch was given a neatly designed dial with a railway-style minutes circle, Arabic numerals and a subdial for the seconds at 6 o’clock. In an era when gents preferred to wear small and elegant wristwatches, the Portugieser must have looked like a gigantic measuring instrument strapped to its wearer’s wrist.

With a diameter of 41 mm, the AAA Portugieser Replica Watch is nonetheless 1 mm smaller than the Portugieser Automatic. This size was formerly considered to be large, but nowadays 41 mm is a normal size for a wristwatch with a built-in stop-seconds function.

This caliber was designed to display the continually running seconds on a subdial at 9 o’clock. To achieve the desired arrangement with the small seconds at the dial’s South Pole, the elapsed-hours counter had to be removed and replaced by a mechanism for the continually running seconds. Such modifications in movements have long been standard procedure at IWC Replica Watches.

Noteworthy Rattrapante Chronograph Copy Watches

Copy Rattrapante chronographs, also referred to as split-seconds chronographs, are a type of chronograph with two seconds hands that allow for the ability to time multiple simultaneous events, such as runners during a race.

It can also time a series of events, such as the laps a single person makes on a track. One of the hands, the so-called “rattrapante” hand, sits either directly on top of or underneath the main chronograph hand. The Replica Watches hand is started and returns to zero simultaneously with the main chronograph hand.

IWC Portugieser Rattrapante Chronograph

IWC Replica introduced its first rattrapante chronograph to the Portugieser collection in 1995 when Richard Habring developed a split-seconds module for the iconic Valjoux 7750 movement.

It uses a push-button at 10 o’clock to control the movement of the upper hand, while the lower hand is managed by the pusher at 2 o’clock.
