Today, the Replica Watches retailer is presenting a special edition of the IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic, in red gold and, of course, with a blue dial.
This new 88-piece of theIWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic Replica Watches for Bucherer is obviously no more than a visual update of an existing watch, with a new case material and a new dial colour to be precise – which doesn’t prevent us to be pleased by this overall good looking watch.
In addition to the other existing blue watches, the IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic Bucherer Blue Editions now combine an 18k red gold case – something that already exits – IWC Replica Watches with a blue dial – something that also exists in the collection. It is the combination of these two that makes this watch special to Bucherer, as the blue dial is usually reserved for the steel case – under the ref. IW390303. The case of this blue edition is the same size, meaning 42mm in diameter x 14.2mm in height.
Here, the main update concerns the addition of gold-coloured hands, applied indices and numerals to the dial, in order to be consistent with the case material. Overall, theIWC Replica contrast between the warm gold case and the cold blue dial is satisfying. One small detail: the date disc is matching the dial and isn’t painted in white. It is paired with a brown Santoni alligator strap.
Since its debut in 1998, the IWC Portugieser Chronograph Ref. 3714 Replicahas become the most sought-after, the most recognisable, and certainly the best-selling model in the Portugieser family. Apart from being a veritable design success, this watch has acquired cult status for one reason: it hasn’t changed a bit since its inception.
Measuring 43mm in diameter, when most contemporary watches measured under 34mm, the style of the Cheap IWC Replica watch was eminently functional with a focus on legibility, breaking with the prevailing trend of overly-designed Art Deco watches. The key elements of the design were the simple Arabic numerals, an ultra-thin bezel, leaf-shaped hands and a functional minutes/seconds track.
One watch that didn’t suffer from this strategy was theIWC Portugieser Replica WatchesChronograph 3714. With the exception of the occasional dial variations, IWC kept the watch visually and technically identical to the original 1998 concept.
