The Iwc Watches World Ranking Replica Portugieser Chronograph gets the 30-minute chronograph counter at 12:00 and the continuous seconds at 6:00. Thankfully, we’re spared the date window here. If you are a fan of the new IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic released a little while ago, you’ll see that this blue dialed sibling does not have the unique minute and hour totalizer at 12:00. This, along with the steel caseback is a indication which IWC has defaulted to its Valjoux 7750-derived grade 79350. This is a strange and seriously unsatisfactory choice given the superb in-house caliber 89361 they have available.The quality 79350, as a modified Valjoux 7750, is a competent movement and offers 42 hours of power reserve at 28,800bph, but it is more of a tool watch motion. What makes this decision even more perplexing is that the IWC Portugieser Automatic is powered by the caliber 52010, which is an IWC in-house layout that offers 7 days of power reserve via two barrels, operating at 28,800bph. As a guideline, if a new establishes a time-only and a chronograph together within precisely the same line, then I anticipate the moves to be of a similar provenance and also for the chronograph to be costly higher.The great news for those who like the Portugieser appearance but have been put off by the price tag for its in-house chrono motion, is that this blue dialed, 7750-powered sibling is almost half the cost. These two watches will be routine production and available through all stores, stores, and IWC’s recently revamped e-store. The brand new IWC Portugieser Automatic (Ref.
IWC is adding three models to its Pilot’s Watch line in its anniversary year. All three models feature the design of the Jubilee collection. They can be recognised by their characteristic dials produced using a complex lacquering process in white or blue.
The Big Pilot’s Watch Annual Calendar Edition “150 Years” (Ref. IW502708), in stainless steel with blue dial, is the only model in the collection with an annual calendar. Production is limited to 100 watches.
The annual calendar has an American-format display for the month, date and day in three separate windows on the dial and requires adjustment only once a year at the end of February. The Pellaton winding of the IWC-manufactured calibre 52850 comes with wear-proof ceramic components and generates a 7-day power reserve in two barrels. The movement is visible through the sapphire-glass back.

Big Pilot’s Watch Big Date Edition “150 Years” (Ref. 5105) is the first Big Pilot’s Watch from IWC with a date display featuring large numerals beneath the triangular index at “12 o’clock”. Two limited-edition models are available, each restricted to 100 watches, in stainless steel with blue dial (Ref. IW510503) or white dial(Ref. IW510504).
When creating the IWC-manufactured calibre 59235, the watch designers added a date display with large numerals to the hand-wound calibre 59210 with a power reserve of 8 days. The date is displayed using a double date ring, with one disc containing the tens and another disc containing the units. The power reserve display had to be positioned on the reverse side so that the dial could preserve the uncluttered style that is characteristic of Pilot’s Watches.
To this end, the soft-iron cage was fitted with a circular display window without compromising protection against magnetic fields.
