IWC Portuguese has always been loved by people around the world, when it comes to dress watch, there will be a position of IWC Portuguese, in every IWC boutique, Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve is the best selling model. Because this watch has a high popularity among our watch fans, so it is also a hot model that has been replicated by different factories in our watch market. In the past, IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve was only cloned by some unknown factories, and the replica had a faux power reserve display. Nowadays, Portuguese 7 Days was mainly produced by two big factories, they are YL and ZF, the quality of replica IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve made by them is very high, the replica not only has a top quality finish, but it also has a real power reserve function, now the power reserve can last 168 hours. Compared with IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve made by YL factory, I prefer the one from ZF because it produced a higher version, which means this replica has been improved by ZF for several times. Today, the replica IWC Portuguese IW500705 I am going to introduce is exactly an upgraded version of ZF, it is the latest V5. I think this is also the ultimate version unless ZF improves it again.
The first impression which this IWC Portuguese replica gives to us is distinguished. Big dial matches with blued sword hands and blue leather strap makes this watch look low-key yet luxurious. The dial of Portuguese IW500705 is my favorite, all Arabic numeral hour markers and hands are blued steel, plus track-style minutes scales, makes the watch look elegant. The subdial positioned at 9 o’clock is for small seconds display, the small dial at 3 o’clock is displaying remaining power reserve, genuine watch has 7-day power reserve capacity, so does this replica. There is a date window at 6 o’clock, it is not only big, but also features a black date font in white background, which makes very convenient for the wearer to read.
About case, its thickness and proportion are completely the same as genuine. The crown is not included, the case is 42.3mm in diameter and 14.5mm thick. The finish of case is perfect, I never see a replica before with such good case finish. The brushing on case side forms a high contrast with polishing on bezel and lugs. The case body is divided into bezel, middle case and case back, each is finished separately and assembled by skilled watch master. Crystal uses sapphire, which features colorless AR Coating, on top face of the crystal, it is a bit domed. Case back also uses sapphire crystal, there are notches for back removing with special watch too. Each case back is engraved with an individual number on edge.
About movement, it is a clone IWC 52010, you can appreciate it by yourself because case back is transparent crystal. The movement is very beautiful, it not only has a close decoration to genuine, but also has achieved all functions that include 7-day power reserve. If you are interested in this replica, it is very important to know the following details.
