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.

AAA IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch TOP GUN Ceratanium

Besides being one hell of a good looking pilot’s watch with the coolest complication/movement you’ll probably find at IWC, this new AAA Replica Double Chronograph TOP GUN also marks the comeback of two iconic features of the brand.

This 39mm steel replica watch had it all: the no-nonsense design, the robustness, the simplicity of the display to enhance legibility and the complex chronograph movement developed in-house with a strong focus on reliability.

This new Swiss IWC Fake Watch isn’t exactly new; it is more of an evolution of existing models rather than an unprecedented creation.

The case of this new Double Chronograph TOP GUN Ceratanium is, as always with IWC Pilot’s Doppel, on the large side. It measures 44mm in diameter and 16.7mm in height – which is due to the automatic movement with an extra split-seconds module and the antimagnetic soft-iron inner case.
