IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve is a great dress watch, except Submariner, it is the watch which our factories are mostly likely to replicate. Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve is loved by a lot of watch fans and there are a lot of versions that have ever appeared in our market. From the earliest version with false power reserve, to the ultimate version with real 7-day power reserve ability, we all witnessed the development of this IWC replica watch. At the beginning, there was only one small factory that replicated this Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve, although the replica at that time was not perfect, it still created a sales miracle, the replica Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve was out of stock for a long time. Today, more than five different factories manufactured this watch, among them, the best one is from Z factory, which we call it ZF version. Actually the Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve replica made by other factories are also fine, but the one made by Z factory is closest to genuine, we can still see Z factory continued to improve this replica and released the latest version, now the latest version of IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve replica is ZF V5, which is the one I am going to give a review. Let’s begin.
The reference number of this IWC Portuguese is IW500704, whose case is made of 316L stainless steel and plated with 18K rose gold, case is measured to be 42mm in diameter and 14mm thick. Bezel, case, case back construction, polishing and satin finish processing are the same as genuine. The round bezel and case are forged into one piece. See from the side, the case is not only has the same thickness as genuine, but also the factory made a lot of efforet in brushing the case side, which looks perfect. Case edges and corners have been finely polished according to the original, so they feel round and smooth, no metal burr feeling when wearing on hand. Crown has the same size and structure, the letter engravings are correct in thickness. Case back also has right configuration, first, each replica has an unique reference engraved, second, the transparent crystal uses sapphire and is screwed down.
The dial of the replica IWC is black, Arabic hour markers and hands are all plated with 18K rose gold like case. Small second hand is working on subdial at 9 o’clock, the small hand on 3:00 subdial is indicating remaining power reserve.
About movement, ZF made a delicate polishing on paltes, there are fish scale patterns and Geneva Stripes, ruby and golden engravings. It is a clone Cal. 52010 movement based on a Chinese Automatic movement. The power reserve could be up to four and half a day, this is already amazing. You know, among all high quality replica watches, the most outstanding clone P.3000 only has 5-day power reserve ability. At the same time, in stability, clone Cal. 52010 also fully meets the standard of an outstanding movement. Although it is a see-through case back design, you do not need to worry it could be spotted as a fake movement. The following are more detailed specification of the replica.
