I always love watches with simple design. So IWC Portofino and Portuguese will be my first choice when selecting one as my dress watch. 3A is an old factory, they are the first manufacturer who makes the highest quality IWC Portuguese Chrono replica watches. Although some factories like ZF make better quality IWC replicas than 3A, A lot of buyers today are still seeking for IWC products from 3A. Today, I will introduce a replica IWC Portofino watch that has a clean and fresh design. When I saw this watch in our market store, I was attracted by its beautiful formal outlook, and I brought it here to share with you guys.
First, the replica IWC is silver white in whole appearance. 316L stainless steel is used to make the case and bracelet, the case is measured to be 42mm in diameter, on the right case, there are three buttons, two chronograph buttons are unique and they have a cap, middle crown is screwed down and features correct relief. Although the factory has done better than before in crown waterproofing design, I still suggest you take off your watch before going swimming. Case back is solid and has screws to lock, the round back on the center is brushed to have radiation patterns, while the edge of the case back is polished. Lugs are very thin but are naturally extended from the case.
Dial is white, there are three subdials, the one at 9 o’clock is for small seconds display, subdials design is very refined, it is sunken on the main dial while central round part is raised. The chronograph function is real, the 30-minute small dial at 12 o’clock is for minute chronograph display, while the 12-hour subdial at 6 is for hour chronograph display. The numbers “30” and “12” on two subdials are in red, very eye-catching and I love this color design. Hour markers are long and slender, they are bar-shaped and in white silver like case tone. On the left side of 3 hour marker, there are two square windows that are showing you current week and date in black font. In a word, too many elements are shown on this dial, but they never affect its readability.
The mesh steel bracelet is one of iconic features of IWC Portofino, actually some Breitling watches also use mesh bracelet, but not as classic as on Portofino. The bracelet is equipped with a polished deployant clasp that features “IWC” engraving. Here are brief details of the IWC Portofino chrono watch.
