Launched three years ago, the IWC Replica Watches Portugieser Automatic 7-Days is the second generation of a classic, looking much the same as the first generation. Now that’s even more true with the latest addition to the line.
The new IWC Replica Portugieser Automatic 7-Days in steel has a silver with rhodium-plated hands and hour numerals, which is exactly the same as the flagship of the first generation.
Now the same look is available for a lot less with the stainless steel ref. IW500712, continuing Cheap IWC Replica recent inclination towards reviving designs from the not too distant past.
It has a 42.3mm steel case that’s 14.2mm high, with the cal. 52010 inside. The movement is automatic with twin barrels that give it a weeklong power reserve. And like most self-winding Swiss IWC Fake Watches calibres, it is equipped with the brand’s proprietary bi-directional Pellaton winding mechanism that relies on claws and a ratchet wheel.
Each year’s Laureus watch has been different from the last – the preceding editions were the Da Vinci chronograph and ladies’ Swiss IWC Fake Watches Portofino – but all share the same deep blue metallic dial.
The latest watch for the good cause is unusual, being the very first Laureus watch in black ceramic, the very first Laureus in a material other than stainless steel in fact. The Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Replica Watches “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” has a glossy black ceramic case that’s 41mm in diameter, being the same case as that on the Mark XVIII Miramar.
And as is tradition the usual matte black dial has been replaced by one in metallic blue, with a red-tipped seconds hand for some colour.
The other feature that’s a Laureus tradition is the engraving on the case back that reproduces a drawing by a child selected by the foundation.
Like the standard IWC Replica Mark XVIII, the Laureus edition is powered by the cal. 35111, which is a rebadged Sellita SW300. And it’s enclosed by a soft-iron cage to protect the movement from magnetism, a standard feature on IWC’s aviator watches.
The Cheap IWC Replica watch is paired with a crosshatch embossed calfskin leather strap.
