I thought it will be a big year for all watch factories in 2021, but I was wrong. The first quarter in 2021 is a big disaster for all watch factories, because they all face the worst and most frequent raiding actions they have ever met, for example, the last raid took a long time, many factories had to be closed, today, some are still not back to work, like Noob. Fortunately, several days ago, XF, V6 and VS factories announced that they will be back soon, and they are accepting orders now, so you can place orders with them, but just need to wait before your order is shipped.
During the last raid, only several big factories still accepted orders, like ZF, EW, PF, PPF, etc., I think ZF is the biggest factory among them, today, some IWC Portuguese replica watches I show below are exactly made by ZF, this factory makes the best replicas of IWC Portuguese, and their main competitor YLF also makes Portuguese replicas but the quality has a large distance.
This time, ZF published three models of the new Portuguese, one features a white dial with blue hour markers, one with a blue dial, the third one has a white dial with golden markers. I like the one with blue dial and black leather strap. The new Portuguese looks more simple than Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve, however, the price of the new Portuguese from ZF is much lower than the Portuguese 7 Days, some people who like IWC watches with simple design may consider it.
I think there is no need to say how good the case finish on the new Portuguese, ZF is a big factory, the case finish on this watch, like you see on the pictures, is in high quality level. ZF makes AP 15400 replicas and directly compete with J12 factory, we all know that J12 factory has a high requirement in case finish, if ZF AP 15400 can compete with J12 and are even sold better, I can say that the ZF also has done a hard work in case finish.
The movement can be clearly seen through crystal case back, it is a common automatic movement, ZF just made some modifications on the auto rotor and plates so that it can look like genuine IWC 82200 Calibre slightly. It is a custom made movement, but can not be compared with the one in Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve, even both from ZF, but I can say the latter looks more beautiful and is closer to genuine.
