Second in this new sub-collection is this panda blue take on the classic 1:1 fake IWC Portugieser Chronograph 3716. The cornerstone of the collection, as well as the most accessible model in the family, this Swiss made replica IWC UK has been around with almost no modifications for almost 25 years. Updated in 2020 with a new manufacture movement, thus becoming the 3716 (but visually identical to its predecessor, the 3714), it measures a reasonable 41mm x 13.1mm and is characterized by its vertical display.
Inside is the ValFleurier-made calibre 69355, an automatic integrated movement with column wheel, now visible under the sapphire caseback. Again, this new panda blue perfect fake IWC seems close to the existing silver-plated model with blue accents (reference IW371605) but actually has a glossy white lacquered dial with different colour and surface. The other update concerns the strap.
As of now, we’ve seen the cheap replica IWC Portugieser Chronograph worn on alligator straps, on a steel bracelet or even on eco-friendly straps. It’s here mounted on a blue textured rubber strap with a pin buckle, adding to the sportiness of this edition. It’s also part of the permanent collection and retails for EUR 8,950 (the same price as other classic steel super clone watches online uk).
