IWC’s new watches: Highly accurate timekeeping
Like its “big brother” it’s accessible on a handsome ‘artisanal’ leather strap by the Italian shoemaker Santoni and shares the same ‘arched-edge’ sapphire. Some watches tend to stand out through brand name, others through durability and others through an out of this world design. From the first glance to even a more thorough analysis the luxury replica watches manages to fool even a watch connoisseur.
Besides, a even more surprising function of this watch is that: it has an eight-day power reserve. Last week IWC unveiled two new pieces at the new Watches and Wonders exhibition in Hong Kong.
IWC’s famed Portuguese collection – so named for the businessmen who originally requested oversize wristwatches featuring larger, more reliable pocket timepiece movements back in the Thirties – has been a central pillar of the brand’s collection for going-on nine decades.
The case materials have upgraded as well: we like the 18ct white gold version with slate dial. The latest iteration returns to the classical format released earlier this year, with a 42mm case and chamfered (or as IWC would have it, “arched-edge”) sapphire that appears to shrink the watch’s dimensions even more. Once the baby of the family, the Portofino collection has grown considerably in recent years – in both size and stature. A slight uplift to 43mm has allowed the all-new Portuguese Hand-Wound Eight Days to offer an appreciable 192 hours’ power reserve (nearly doubling that of the last hand-wound model). it combines all the hallmarks of the original Portuguese including rhodium-plated Arabic numerals and feuille hands, accessible in red gold with silver-plated dial and stainless steel with either black or silver-plated dials.
The details on the replica are so delicate that there is basically nothing to distinguish it from the original watch other than the extremely reduced price.we can easily see how well polished the watch is and how beautiful it looks; this is a very important aspect because sometimes replica watches are a bit more matte and hardly shine as well as the originals. But this watch has been polished to perfection and even the lovely metal shade has been achieved making it, at least at first glance, very similar to the original.
