New Releases: IWC Portugieser Manual Winding Tourbillon Day & Night

Despite last year’s wildly successful Ingenieur rebirth, the brand has only announced new models for the Portugieser collection. While the Cheap IWC Replica case has been updated, most of the watches debuting are not completely new. There are two exceptions, though, one of which is the new IWC Portugieser Hand-Wound Tourbillon Day & Night.

The Portguieser Hand-Wound Tourbillon Day & Night features a solid 18k Armored Gold case that measures 42.4mm in diameter and 10.8mm thick. That’s fairly thin for such a wide watch, which can make it sit quite flat and wide on the wrist – not a bad thing. Armored Gold is IWC Replica Watches sale proprietary rose gold alloy that’s harder and more durable than the 5N gold that’s typically used.

The case features a brushed case and polished top and bezel, plus a domed sapphire crystal and a pull-out crown. The 60m water resistance makes it suitable for most activities outside of the pool or ocean, competing with watches that are only water-resistant to 50m. The Luxury perfect replica watches is paired with a black alligator strap and Armor Gold folding clasp, but unfortunately, it doesn’t come with the brand’s quick-release mechanism for easy changes.

The dial offers a rich brushed obsidian canvas, where IWC has placed its two eponymous complications: a tourbillon and a day/night indicator. At 6 o’clock, a gold ring surrounds the tourbillon aperture, with the flying tourbillon on full display. The tourbillon itself isn’t particularly elegant, but neither is the Portugieser’s case; both seem to suggest a more rugged refinement.

The day/night indicator at 9 o’clock represents a new take on this complication from the brand. The polished black and gold sphere rotates to indicate day or night depending on the time. You’ve probably seen this indicator before, most notably from Arnold & Son, but it’s new to Best Quality IWC Replica Watches For Sale. The dial features gilded leaf-shaped hands and gold numerals.

Powering the IWC Portugieser Manual Winding Tourbillon Day/Night Display is a newly developed movement, the “IWC Manufacture” calibre 81925. This manual-winding movement is an evolution of the 81905, which was only equipped with a tourbillon.

The Replica Watches For Discount movement features a diamond-coated silicon escapement for increased efficiency and longevity, and is very attractive through the sapphire caseback crystal. The decorative gilded baseplate houses holes for the mainspring barrel, gears and the all-important day/night ball. The movement offers a power reserve of 84 hours at 28,800vph.

The Portugieser collection strikes a balance between the IWC Big Pilot and IWC Portofino copies cheap ebay, offering models that are arguably the most feature-rich in the brand’s catalogue. Both truly new Portugiesers introduced this year are impressive, but I appreciate its restraint and simplicity, as well as the somber elegance conveyed by the black and gold combination.
