There are three popular IWC series watches, namely pilot chronograph, Portuguese chronograph, and Portofino chronograph. These three IWC chronographs have been widely circulated among watch lovers since the luxury watches became popular in the UK after 2000. They are the three most famous replica watches with the highest acceptance and recognition in the UK. And once it became popular, it became popular for more than ten years.
This year, these three chronographs, IWC Pilot Chronograph, Portuguese Chronograph, and Portofino Chronograph, have all been updated. The IWC self-produced movement dominates the world. But at the same time, because these three IWC chronographs have been in circulation in the UK for a very long time, the stock is large, and the old and new are mixed, so today we will introduce the three new models after the update.
IWC Pilot’s Chronograph Replica
IWC pilot timing, AMG Petronas F1 Team Cooperation Model
Main Style: Sports
The pilot timing is the earliest batch of IWC. As of today, except for a few old models (such as the Little Prince), Pilot Timing has fully completed the replacement of the self-produced 69000 series movement. And the 41mm and 43mm steel shell models are the main models, and the ceramic shell TOP GUN is the high-end, which is suitable for wide and thin wrists.
After changing to IWC’s self-produced 69000 series movement, IWC’s new pilot timing has added a transparent bottom, so that the movement can be seen. This is not available in the old flying meter. The bottom-through 69000 movement, the upper layer with circular Geneva stripes, and the lower layer with fish scale patterns, are polished and decorated in place.
Some flight gauges, such as TOP GUN and Spitfire, are impenetrable. An intuitive identification feature of pilot timing using the new IWC69000 series self-produced movement is that the small second hand is located at 6 o’clock on the dial. The old flying meter with a general-purpose movement has a small second hand at 9 o’clock. Through the position of the small second hand, you can identify at a glance whether it is a new model with a self-produced movement.
The waterproof of the new flying meter has been improved, from 60 meters of the old model to 100 meters. And increased the quick release of the strap. Except for the classic appearance, other parts have been substantially improved. In the past 10 years, IWC has set off three upsurges. The first time is the flying color logo in the early years, the second time is the little prince back then, and the third time is the current pilot timing.
IWC Portugal Chronograph Replica
Main Style: Suitable for formal wear, mixing with the sporty appearance.
After the pilot’s timing, the second series to change the new 69000 chronograph movement is the Portuguese timing, and all the replacements have been completed today. Portuguese meter is the beauty king of IWC. In the early years, when formal replica watches were in a dominant position, Portuguese watches were more popular than Pilots Chronograph.
IWC Portugal Chronograph, launched in 1998 to today, has not changed in appearance for more than 20 years. This is very rare in the entire watch world. The classic and perfect appearance of Portuguese watch has passed the test of time. This time, after changing to the new 69000 series chronograph movement, the new Portuguese has added a transparent bottom. In the past, the movement of the old Portuguese was not transparent. The 69000 series automatic movement used by Portuguese is also well decorated. There are a lot of circular Geneva stripes on the upper layer and fish scale patterns on the lower layer. The column wheel adds more technical features to the 69000 movement.
Although the appearance has not changed, IWC has added a stronger “sporty sense” to the new Portugal Chronograph. The old Portuguese has always been made with a belt. Portuguese itself takes leisure into account in the treatment of the case (the side of the case is brushed). After replacing the tape and steel chain, the sense of movement is greatly increased, and even has the charm of IWC Portuguese yacht elite. But it should be noted that the waterproof of the Portuguese meter is 30 meters.
Among the formal replica watches, the recognition degree of the Portuguese watch is one of the best. After further adding the sporty style this time, the Portuguese Chrono can be said to be the “almighty king” among all the formal watches.
IWC Portofino Replica Chronograph 39
IWC Portofino Chronograph 39 Replica
Main Style: Suitable for both formal wear and casual outfits
Among the IWC3 hot replica watches, the last one to complete the update, and the one with the biggest change at the same time is the Portofino chronograph. In the past, among IWC’s main formal chronographs, the Portofino chronograph has a “three-eye” chronograph dial and a day calendar window, which is different from IWC Portugal chronograph. But this time, the design of the new Portofino chronograph began to move closer to the Portuguese chronograph.
The new Portofino Chronograph 39 has the same dial design as the Portuguese watch.
The new Portofino chronograph is changed to the same 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock “binocular” chronograph as the Portuguese chronograph, and the week calendar is cancelled. Although the layout of the dial is the same as that of the Portuguese chronograph, the different shapes of willow needles and stick-shaped hour markers make the new Portofino chronograph a school of its own. Compared with the old Portofino chronograph with 42mm (Portugal is also 42), the new Portofino chronograph with 39mm is compact in size, with a fully polished case and mushroom head chronograph buttons, which has a stronger sense of formality. The appearance of this replica is a step higher than the old Portofino.
The appearance of Portofino Chronograph 39 has a stronger sense of formality.
After the new Portofino Chronograph is replaced with a 69000 series chronograph movement, it also has a transparent bottom, which is not available in the old Portofino Chronograph. The polished decoration and technical configuration of the movement are consistent with those of Pilot and Portuguese. The upper layer is also decorated with Geneva stripes and the lower layer is decorated with fish scales, and the power is 46 hours. In particular, it should be noted that there is a transitional model of Portofino Chronograph, which uses the appearance of the new Portofino Chronograph 39, but uses a general-purpose movement that is not transparent.
The Portofino Chronograph 39 uses the 69000 chronograph movement produced by IWC.
Compared with the hard-core Pilot Chronograph and the grandeur of the Portuguese Chronograph, the remodeled Portofino Chronograph 39 is fresh and refined, and it is perfect for formal wear.
