Cheap IWC Portugieser Chronograph Replica Watch Very Pretty

Aesthetically this version of the Cheap IWC Portugieser Replica is very pretty, but it is marred by ineffective hands. Notice how on the blue dial the beautiful white hour markers are easy to read because of the high contrast? IWC didn’t follow suit with the hands, which are needle-thin and polished. This means they blur in with the dial and cause legibility issues which do not flatter the full potential of the timeless Portugieser dial design. If only Cheap IWC Replica had painted the hands in white to match the hour markers… perhaps for a future variant of the Portugieser Chronograph? We can hope right?

The IW371602 features a polished steel case and slightly glossy black alligator strap which looks just fantastic in a high-end, timeless, and conservative style. I’ve long said that the Portugieser Chronograph is a staple “timeless, non-offensive” luxury dress IWC Replica Watches for people seeking to maximum fashionable versatility and value. In short, a watch like this will simply never feel out of place in a well-rounded timepiece collection.

The IWC Portugieser Chronograph Replica case here is 41mm wide and just 13.1mm thick. The iconic Portugieser-style case looks as good as ever, and the case is water-resistant to 30m. In my opinion the dial design is exactly what someone should be looking for in a Portugieser timepiece. The stark white dial with black hour markers evokes the ship deck-style clock that the Portugieser design was originally inspired by. The hands are blued-steel and offer sublime contrast and a hint of color, which flatters pretty much any watch dial rather nicely.

Charming Fake IWC has absolutely no shortage of Portugieser Chronograph models to choose from if you are in the market for one. The model that you as a consumer will ultimately choose is a mixture of price, availability, and style. With watches like this I always recommend going with a lighter-colored dial as it will feature the core Portugieser design best. I will also remind IWC that I miss it when these watches were just called the Portuguese and not Portugieser. IWC made that nomenclature change a little while ago – and I’m still not sure why.

Fashion IWC Pilot’s Mark XVIII Replica Watches

Cheap IWC Replica has partnered with the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation for the 12th time to release the IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Edition “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” watch. Announced during the 2018 Laureus World Sports Awards in Monaco, the limited edition run of 1,500 pieces features a black ceramic case with the signature Laureus edition blue sunburst dial. There’s been an IWC watch done for Laureus and this is the follow up to last year’s Da Vinci Chronograph edition.

This edition shares the same dimensions as the standard IWC Pilot’s Mark XVIII Replica Watches, a 41mm case at a height of 11mm, with a lug-to-lug of 51mm. Ticking inside the Mark XVIII is the IWC Caliber 35111, an automatic movement based on the Sellita SW300-1, and in true pilot’s watch fashion, the movement is covered with an iron inner case to protect it from magnetism. Continuing their efforts to use ceramic in their cases, and following the trend towards ceramic in Switzerland, IWC Replica Watches has chosen to feature a black ceramic case on this special edition, creating a jet-black look that allows the blue dial to stand out against the ceramic.

Conflicting with this jet-black look, however, is the titanium crown, which is not color-matched or DLC-coated, and disrupts the dark style of the Charming Fake Watches. I would have liked to have seen IWC make more of an attempt to blend the crown with the case, rather than leaving it as is. Flanking the titanium caseback is an engraving submitted to IWC as part of its annual drawing competition they host with the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, and is themed as “time to be healthy,” pun definitely intended. The watch will also come on an embossed calfskin leather strap, in black of course.

Ceramic cases have most certainly been “in” for the last couple of years, and it seems IWC Fake Watches wants to stay relevant in the ceramic experimentation arms race in Switzerland. I generally view these types of nonprofit collaborations as more of a marketing opportunity for the watch brand, rather than for the benefit of the foundation, but nonetheless, it’s nice to see the luxury community coming around to support what is legitimately a good cause, so a thumbs up there.
