IWC makes superior quality watches, maybe in most time the material and technolgoy used by IWC watch are more advanced than other brands, so that IWC could develop Portuguese watch series, which has been famous for its highly complicated functions. Maybe Portuguese is not the most popular IWC model because modern people like sports watches more, so their Pilots watches are selling well among our watch fans. However, for some officially formal occasions such as formal organization and meetings, a Portuguese watch is necessary, because such type of dress watch with business suits will make a man look more mature, this is also the way you show respect to your business partners. So, preparing an IWC Portuguese at home for special usage is really essential.
Today, the watch I will discuss is a replica IWC that is made by YL factory, not ZF. Like genuine, the replica has a long power reserve, it is almost 120 hours, previous models do not have such long power reserve. The replica is equipped with a clone Cal. 52850, the factory spent three years to research and develop this movement, which is the only movement in our market that has achieved real annual calendar function. About the details on this clone movement, the plates decoration, thickness, size and construction are much closer to genuine IWC 52850 Caliber.
The case is made of 316L stainless steel that is plated with 18K rose gold, the gold coating is thick up to 5 mils, it will never fade. Case is 44.2mm in diameter and the crystal back shows inner beauty of the cool movement mechanism.
White dial looks big and easy for the wearer to read time. There are two subdials, the one at 9 o’clock is for small seconds, the other one at 3 is 7-day power reserve indicator, the small hand is working, not false. On the top, there are three small windows, which show month, date and week separately.
About its brown leather band, the brown color is exactly in line with rose gold case, perfectly matches. Besides, have you noticed the unique patterns on the band, yes, the strap is made of genuine alligator leather, which is more durable and soft to wear.
