I have mentioned more than once that Z factory makes the best replica IWC watches, especially the replica IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve, which is considered to be the most classic watch in our market. The power reserve has reached 3 days, this is a big breakthrough. Now in the beginning of 2019, along with lots of new replica watches published by other factories, this time ZF also brought us a big surprise, they unveiled the latest models of Portuguese Annual Calendar, after the release of these four models, the dominance of Z factory in replica IWC Portuguese field is further consolidated. The following article will give a basic review of these watches and share photos with you.
There are totally four watches of IW503502, three of them are in white stainless steel, the other one has a rose gold case. I will take the stainless steel model with black leather strap for example. The case is made of solid 316L stainless steel, which is measured to be 44mm in diameter, case thickness is 14mm. Round case and thin bezel make the dial look bigger, this is the classic case design of most dress watches. As one of the most popular dress watches, IWC Portuguese has a simple case and elegant dial design. The front face of the lugs are polished, both sided faces of the case are brushed, the arc of the lugs is improved, it is closer to genuine. Case back is see-through sapphire crystal.
On white dial, all functions of the watch are shown on front of your eyes. At 12 o’clock, there is an annual calendar window displaying month, date and week. The small dial at 3 o’clock is a 7-day power reserve indicator, it is showing the remaining power reserve energy of the replica watch, like genuine Portuguese Annual Calendar watch, the power reserve hand of the replica is functional. Although the replica does not have a real 7-day power reserve capacity, it can provide you two-day timing with one full winding.
The IWC Portuguese Annual Calendar replica is equipped with an Asia IWC 52850 automatic movement, ZF disassembled all 326 components of original movement, after lots of trials of data analysis, the clone movement looks 90% the same as original 52850, besides, its adjusting method and winding feel are 100% the same as original. Because this IWC Portuguese watch has a see-through case back, so on the replica movement, ZF factory needs to work hard on the movement decoration. The following are photos of four Portuguese Annual Calendar watches.
