Details about IWC Chronograph Spitfire

In addition to the improved replica rolex watch and 41mm size, another notable aspect of the new timer is the movement, as this is the first time IWC has installed a 69000 series movement on a pilot’s watch. The Spitfire chronograph USES the IWC 69380, which is surrounded by a soft iron cage to aid in antimagnetic control.   iwc-075898_02 iwc-075898_03
This is an improvement on the 69370, adding a day to the time display, which is a cylinder wheel timing movement that shares some of the infrastructure with the ETA 7750, but is entirely internally produced, and benefits from IWC’s legendary timing technology.
Given the iron inner shell, the spitfire timer chose a solid steel shell to mask its automatic winding motion. 69380 ticks at 4Hz, providing 46 hours of power reserve, providing time, date, date, and a 12-hour central second timer. The thrusters are very direct, crisp and mechanical, and no one is likely to associate the 7750 with weirdness or noise. Considering the price and packaging (I reiterate that the Spitfire meter is 15. 3mm, including its dome crystal), IWC promotes providing a great timepiece movement in a wearable and well-proportioned watch.
While not without competitors, the value statement is strong, and I think replica watches like the Spitfire timepiece demonstrate the level of sophistication that IWC has achieved in sports development, especially in terms of average consumer (luxury) prices.
The Spitfire chronograph on your wrist quickly made an impression. Size is excellent, at the individual level, and it is just a more balanced offering of 43mm size for some common previous and comparable examples. It was big enough to feel sporty, but not big enough to squeeze my 7-inch wrist. Its design gives it a loose military feel, but it doesn’t make me feel like I’m wearing camouflage pants or a dog tag from the mall.
As I said in my previous comments, style is hard to define with a watch, but I think IWC replica has created something that is both stylish and thoughtful but never picky. Metal pointer for the dial added a bright spot, readability is always very strong. I thought the green fabric was perfect, and after a day or two, it broke down a little bit, but it turned out to be very comfortable. While I might switch between sue style leather or NATO(I’m a creature of habit), as I mentioned above, the design is so varied that it’s hard to imagine a belt not working.
Interestingly, there are no bracelet options, at least for now. Although I am not a bracelet person and do wear a watch like this on the strap, I do think IWC should make bracelets for this timepiece (as far as I know, they will). As they have done with other pilots’ timers in the past, I think a small, elegant steel multi-link chain would be perfect for this watch, and most of its competitors offer a combination of steel and steel.

The Best Replica IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic lives up to its name

In the year of 1939 when two Portuguese merchants approached IWC about making a wristwatch with the same levels of precision usually seen in marine chronometer pocket replica watches, they don’t know if it would be the start point of a legend and the birth of one of IWC’s most famous collections. With a new slightly revised design, Replica IWC have established an new version of their Portugieser Chronograph Classic – which we first saw back in 2013. The updates are few and not enough but they have culminated in a watch that accentuates the classic styling fans of the Portugieser love. iwc replica iwc-075898_03
When comparing new with old, the removal of the 1/5th of the second marking from the railway-track style chapter ring and the omission of the red accents from the chronograph markings have made for a cleaner looking dial that bolsters the family connection. Coupled with the now slightly slimmer feuille (leaf) hands and applied Arabic numerals, there is no doubting to which collection the Chronograph Classic belongs – especially when it sits beside its aperture-heavy brother, the Portugieser Annual Calendar.
The stainless steel has two choices of dial: silver dial with blued hands and numerals, and a midnight blue with rhodium-plated hands and numerals. While the 18k red gold is now only available with a silver dial paired with case-matching gold hands and numerals. The 42mm case with a thickness of 14.5mm is unchanged to a large extend, and is available in either stainless steel or 18k red gold. Inside, things are still the same, no changes at all, and the movement remains the venerable self-winding in-house calibre with date display, flyback function, and a 68-hour power reserve. This also leaves the vertical bi-compax dial layout untouched with small seconds at 6 o’clock and an elapsed minutes and hours counter combined at 12 o’clock.
Sizeable yet elegant, the Portugieser chronographs are always a popular option here in Australia. With its revised styling the fake IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic is likely to live up to its name, becoming just that – a classic and an unique.
