IWC Portofino Perpetual Calendar Watch IW344601(Replica IWC Portofino), the performance of the whole watch in terms of size, 40 mm diameter, 12.7 mm thickness, can be said to be very good, it is also the smallest perpetual calendar watch among the models currently on sale by IWC. The small size allows it to not only continue the elegant style of the Portofino series, but also provide a good wearing experience.
The narrow bezel of Portofino is also an iconic design, which makes people feel that the dial is very open at first glance, especially for this silver and white dial, with polished willow-leaf hands and three-dimensional hour markers on the dial. Finally, it adds a sense of luxury to the watch. Many watch lovers like the IWC perpetual calendar style for two reasons. One is that the layout of the dial is clear enough and reasonable. Since its birth, the IWC perpetual calendar has always been able to display multi-functions whether it is four sets of plates or three sets of plates. Make it so that it doesn’t look messy at all.
When we look at the Portofino perpetual calendar, it uses three sub-dials, which are actually more concise and harmonious. The date sub-dial is at 3 o’clock, the month is displayed at 6 o’clock, and the week is displayed at 9 o’clock. A small leap year indicator is also set in the date sub-dial, which will turn into a red “L” when a leap year arrives. On the sub-dial at 6 o’clock, under the background of the starry blue night sky, IWC also integrated the precise moon phase display and month display. Although there is no iconic digital year display window, the overall readability is excellent. At the same time, no matter the details or the overall surface of the dial, it reveals exquisiteness everywhere and is durable.
The watch uses the 82650 movement. As the 82 series movement, the self-produced series of IWC’s logo, the performance and polishing of this movement are naturally guaranteed. The full chain provides 60 hours of dynamic storage, and is equipped with a Pellaton two-way automatic winding system, which is the woodpecker winding system known for its winding efficiency. From the back, you can directly see the operation of its black zirconia ceramic pawl parts, which is also the strength of IWC in the field of materials. IWC’s application of ceramics is not only on the appearance of the shell, but also extends it into the movement as a component, which solves the original problem of wear resistance of the woodpecker winding, so that the ceramic components are almost free from wear and tear.
The watch is equipped with a calfskin blue strap. This is the real thing to praise IWC. The traceable source straps used by the brand today are very good at the softness of the leather. Softness means that it can be more It fits the wrist well, and there is no need for a break-in period with the strap. Wearing it is the most comfortable wearing experience. The strap leather material is produced in Switzerland and processed in Italy. We can’t find any problems in the overall fit, softness, and stitching details. However, the fly in the ointment is that IWC did not equip it with a quick release system.https://www.osalewatch.io/
