UK Perfect Replica IWC Combines Their Core Design Language With An Updated Case In Their New Portugieser Perpetual Calendar

We’ve got four years until the next leap year, which means I’ve got a few years to search for a watch to be appropriately prepared. Swiss replica IWC is one of the early entrants to the competition. I actually got to preview their new Perpetual Calendar on leap day. It was an appropriate celebration, but since I wasn’t allowed to post it until earlier this week, I lead with another perfect replica IWC Perpetual Calendar, which is appropriate. Next to Patek, luxury fake IWC UK is a brand I most closely associate with perpetual calendars.
Thanks to the genius of the legendary Kurt Klaus, cheap super clone IWC jumped into the complications arms race with the Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar in 1985. From there, it took off, going from perpetual calendar only to perpetual calendar with split chronograph, then adding a minute repeater and finally a tourbillon in short order. So excuse me if I say, if Swiss made replica IWC is talking perpetual calendars, it deserves some respect, dammit.

It would be easy for a “normal” perpetual calendar to get overshadowed in a year like aaa quality fake IWC UK has had, with a boatload of SKUs in the Portugieser lineup, ranging from the more affordable (and daily wear-appropriate) time-only or chronograph releases to the “big brother” Eternal Calendar. In fact, it’s partially because of the Eternal Calendar that I figured the Swiss copy IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendars would deal with a little bit of “middle child syndrome” and deserved some extra attention. In fact, they look so damn good I spent a bunch of extra time photographing the releases when I saw them during previews and felt like they deserved their moment in the sun.

The new IWC Portugieser replica for men are an additive part of the lineup, joining the 42mm release from a few years ago that has what I’d consider a more “traditional” dial layout for a quantième perpetuel (as the French say, or QP), with subdials at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock. That gives the 42mm a dressier feel that might feel appropriate for a dressier watch like the Portugieser. But frankly, that’s not the iconic top copy IWC layout I’ve come to love. Sure, you can get it in a more traditional color combination like below (Armor gold and white lacquered dial) but IWC super clone online uk knows how to give you a few options with a bit more fun.

This new watch should feel familiar. It sits somewhere between the visuals of the past 44mm ref. IW503302 Portugieser and the 2018 ref. IW503406 Swiss movement fake IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendars, most noticeably with the double moonphase for the north and south hemispheres at 12 o’clock. It’s the kind of dial I’m used to from looking at the Big Pilot perpetual calendars (like the Lake Tahoe released last year). It might not be common knowledge for the average reader, but a big part of that design comes from the fact that the dual moonphase displays track both the northern and southern hemisphere – something you don’t get on the best replica IWC Portugieser QP 42.

One of the bigger struggles the high quality replica IWC Portugieser QP 44 might have is the size. At 44mm, it’s already large, but 14.9mm starts to get on the thicker side. But the case has been completely reworked. The case ring is slimmer, making a slimmer profile from the side while moving some of the thickness to the double-domed sapphires at the front and back, making room for a bolder dial display and a movement that takes advantage of every potential millimeter of space. This is no Patek 5070, a watch that’s essentially a “thin guy in a giant coat” to reverse “Tommy Boy.”

My second choice is the Dune dial in a white gold case. I’ll let you insert your own “Dune” film pun here, but the soft sandy dial is a nice alternative to white on white – maybe something they could have done with the Eternal Calendar, which still feels a bit flat to me. That leaves us with my last potential hangup with the watch. Because of the precious metal case, the top quality replica IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendars aren’t cheap – $46,500 in Armor Gold or $47,500 in white gold. Sure, you’re getting a perpetual calendar (and making them isn’t easy, let alone at the scale best quality fake IWC is doing). But its a price that might be a tough pill for some customers to swallow. Previous iterations haven’t necessarily held their value on the secondary market, and faced with paying a not-insignificant amount more for a newer model, you might see customers walking toward grey market dealers instead. Only time will tell if all the improvements of the new watch are enough to create a perceived value for buyers.
