UK Swiss replica IWC are known for their simplicity and functionality, and this can be seen in its most popular collections – the Big Pilot, Mark series and Portugieser. However, the Portofino is rarely spoken about, yet the range holds to the perfect fake IWC philosophy. Given that, it could be an alternative entry into the brand beyond the Mark series and provide you with the aaa quality replica IWC charm, without the price tag of a Portugieser.
The cheap fake IWC Portofino was initially launched in 1984, making it one of the newest ranges within the IWC collection. To stand out from the quartz crowd, popular at the time, Swiss super clone IWC decided to look to the past rather than the present for inspiration and drew it from pocket watches produced by Lepine in the 1800s. By doing so, the model featured very classic design elements such as a white dial, Roman numerals, Breguet hands and a moonphase complication, all housed in an oversized case.
In the 1990s, the watch evolved closer to what we see today as it become more minimalistic with gold stick indices and hands in the smallest case 1:1 replica IWC UK had produced to date.
The modern IWC Portofino fake for sale manages to combine both styles in an understated package. It is a smaller, dressier option from the brand coming in 34/37/39/42mm case sizes with various complications on offer. As it has a more formal personality, it can be compared closer to a Portugieser than other models. The round case continues to offer a traditional, vintage aesthetic inspired by the 1980s Portofino. Interestingly, the high quality fake IWC Portofino is a newer collection than the Portugieser, yet it more closely resembles watches from the past.
The lugs are broken from the case rather than being seamlessly built into the case. The dial is very well-balanced, featuring minimal text and Roman numerals at the 12 and 6 positions with stick indices elsewhere. Despite being a dress copy watch, it manages to have a robust feel on the wrist mainly coming down to the size and solidity of the case meaning it might not be as formal on the wrist as you first expect.
With prices starting at below £4,500, it is a very compelling package, especially as prices are rising across the industry and you are buying into one of the most effortlessly cool brands out there. My pick would be the blue dial 39mm Swiss movement copy IWC chronograph.
