Hands-On: Re-Engineered 1:1 Replica IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar 44 Watches

Arguably one of the more gorgeous and impressive watches from Watches & Wonders Geneva 2024 is the re-engineered cheap fake IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar 44 — seen here are two of the four iterations, Obsidian over 18k 5N Armor Gold® as Ref. IW503702, and Horizon Blue over 18k white gold as Ref. IW503703. While the underlying recipe is a familiar one, since the perpetual calendar-equipped Portugieser (and the “Portuguese” before it) has forever been an IWC staple, there is something to these new versions that highlights what perfect replica IWC is about — and perhaps should be yet more.

What would that be? Perpetual refinement. Cheesier than Jean-Claude Biver’s basement, I know, but it is every bit as real. We turn to a brand like Hublot for sheer entertainment, a shock, even — while we seek stability and tireless pursuit of yet greater refinement from companies such as luxury fake IWC, with a moment of awe and surprise appreciated every once in a while when it is testing its stylistic limitations. We should also add that launching new-new watches has not exactly been an aaa quality replica IWC strongpoint — the Ingenieur, while extremely popular, is rather expensive and slightly compromised in its execution, and you have probably all but forgotten about the re-launched Da Vincis and women’s Portofinos by now. Harsh, but true.

By contrast, just look at this new Swiss movement replica IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar 44 — it is drop-dead gorgeous. Beautifully proportioned, nicely executed, and somehow… Dense-looking. As if you took much of what was beefy, robust, engineered, and refined in a watch, put it all in a mold, and subjected all that to very high, very even pressure. In more concrete terms, the new Portugieser is powerful because while you are looking at it, you are not thinking about any other watch — and, believe it or not, the same cannot be said about a shockingly high number of $40,000 top quality fake watches.

New for 2024 is the cheap replica IWC Portugieser’s case construction in an effort to make it slimmer and more refined. It is almost too simple, with wide, curved, polished lug tops and an arched, horizontally brushed case profile, topped with a polished, concave bezel — a cunning little detail that is virtually impossible to spot at first, or even fifth, sight, that nevertheless frames the dial and the boxed crystal above it.

On the wrist, the dial color drastically affects the look and feel of the various Swiss made fake IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar 44 watches. This is true for any watch, but the colors in this new collection are so vivid and the dials themselves are so prominent in the overall aesthetic of the piece that picking one over the other is truly a defining challenge. Therefore, the real star is the dial — but also in part because it also hints at the functionality that lies beneath it.
