The 20-year-old IWC Portugieser chronograph Replica Watches has always been the best-selling mainstay in the collection, a beautifully-looking watch that, despite its surprising complexity, is reasonably priced. Despite trying to enter the high-end market through the IWC high-end internal chronograph movement, the original Portugieser Chronograph ref. 3714 is still very popular.
In aesthetics, the Portugieser chronograph “150 Years” received an anniversary, and the glossy finish dial was dark blue or white. Both are common colors for the Portugieser chronograph, but the shiny surface resembling a enamel is novel. The IWC Replica white dial is more restrained and has the advantage of visual appeal.
Internal is a very important place to upgrade. Instead of the low cost Valjoux 7750 or Sellita SW500 in the original ref. 3714, the anniversary chronograph is powered by cal. 64355. Cheap IWC Replica referred to it as the “manufacturing” movement as a highly upgraded Valjoux 7750 produced by IWC.
While many of the basic architectures rely on the proven Valjoux 7750, improvements have been made in key areas. Several key upgrades are evident, the Replica Watches column wheels used to control the start and stop of the chronograph, and the escape wheel and pallets produced by the high-tech lithography and forming process LIGA. This technology allows the lightweight open escapement made of nickel to increase the efficiency of the movement.
Although the anniversary of the Swiss IWC Fake Watches Portuguese chronograph is no different from the previous generation, it is actually slightly larger due to the new movement. The anniversary is 41 mm in diameter and 13.1 mm high, slightly larger than the original size of 40.9 mm x 12.6 mm.
