This replica watch is a new model just published in our market. Actually it is not “new” because V9 factory made this watch before, but the functions are not correct. APS factory is very brave to take the challenge because it is not easy to make this watch a perfect clone. APS is an very experienced watch factory and is also one of the few factories in our market that have ability to make super clone movements, so they make this IWC Portuguese watch a perfect clone, with right functions, I can not believe all functions can be realized on this replica watch. Not all factories are willing to spend a lot of time on researching and improving the movements, including some big factories like ZF and Clean, but APS factory has done a really good job in researching and developing better movements for replica watches. This IWC Portuguese Perpetual Calendar, check its face, so many functions displayed on the dial, you can imagine how hard to make a perfect replica of it, only V9 factory made, other factories even did not try, including ZF, which was famous for making top quality IWC Portuguese replicas. There are some needs for the replica of this watch, many readers have asked me about it, I believe the watch made by APS factory will be a good replica, and I think APS will continue to make improvements on it, like they have done so many improvements on their AP watches.
The functions you see on the replica are all real. The blue round dial at 12 o’clock is day/night display in two different locations. The subdial at 9 o’clock is week display with a tracking-type small-second subdial inside, both hands are blue, one is pointing at current week, the other is sweeping smoothly as a small-second hand, both hands work independently. The small dial at 6 o’clock is month display, between 7:00 and 8:00, current year is displayed in a square window. At 3 o’clock, the bigger circle displays date, there is a 7-day power reserve indicator inside. The entire dial not only displays you multiple functions, but also looks very classic due to its lancet-shaped hands and blue color. APS factory published four models of this IWC Portuguese Perpetual Calendar, two in rose gold and two in stainless steel.
The see-through crystal back shows the movement that features a skeleton auto rotor and beautiful decoration on the plates, I think APS will continue to improve the movement. Because it is need to achieve so many functions, the movement was installed with extra modules, so the case of the watch is a little thick than regular Portuguese 7 Days model. APS claims that the movement has a 72-hour power reserve, whatever if it is true, when the watch is fully winded, the small hand on the power reserve indicator at 3 o’clock will move on line next to digit “7”. There are some advice on how to adjust the functions of the watch, if you are interested in, please ask me through email.
