1:1 Replica IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve IW500704

The IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve stands out as an exceptional dress watch, rivaled only by the Submariner in terms of replica popularity. Adored by numerous watch enthusiasts, this timepiece has seen a myriad of versions grace the market. From its initial iteration featuring an ersatz power reserve indicator to its pinnacle form boasting a genuine 7-day power reserve, the evolution of this IWC replica watch has been remarkable to witness.

Initially, a solitary small-scale factory embarked on replicating the Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve. Despite its imperfections, this replica achieved unprecedented sales success, often facing prolonged periods of unavailability. Presently, over five distinct factories have joined the ranks of manufacturers producing this watch. Among them, the Z factory has emerged as a standout performer, colloquially known as the ZF version.

While replicas from other factories maintain a respectable standard, the ZF rendition remains the closest in resemblance to the authentic model. Continuously refining their craft, Z factory recently introduced the latest iteration, ZF V5. In this review, I delve into the intricacies of the newest rendition of the IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve replica from ZF. Let us commence.

The IWC Portuguese with reference number IW500704 boasts a case crafted from 316L stainless steel, plated with 18K rose gold, measuring 42mm in diameter and 14mm in thickness. The meticulous attention to detail in its construction is evident throughout. The bezel, case, and case back exhibit identical construction and finishing to the genuine model. Constructed seamlessly, the round bezel and case are forged into a single entity.

Examining the case from the side reveals not only a matching thickness to the authentic counterpart but also meticulous brushing by the factory, resulting in a flawless appearance. The edges and corners of the case have undergone careful polishing to replicate the smooth, rounded feel of the original, ensuring a comfortable wear without any sharp edges.

The crown maintains the same dimensions and structure as the authentic piece, with accurately rendered letter engravings of correct thickness. Additionally, the case back is configured to mirror that of the genuine model. Each replica features a unique reference number engraved, and the transparent crystal is crafted from sapphire and securely screwed down, in line with the specifications of the genuine timepiece.

The dial of the replica IWC features a sleek black hue, complemented by Arabic hour markers and hands plated with 18K rose gold, mirroring the luxurious aesthetic of the case. Positioned at 9 o’clock, a small second hand operates within its designated subdial. Meanwhile, the subdial at 3 o’clock serves the practical function of displaying the remaining power reserve, enhancing both the functionality and elegance of the timepiece.

ZF has meticulously polished the plates of the movement, adorning them with intricate fish scale patterns and Geneva Stripes, along with ruby and golden engravings, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the mechanism. This replica houses a clone Cal. 52010 movement, which is based on a Chinese Automatic movement. Remarkably, the power reserve of this movement can extend up to four and a half days, a feat that is truly impressive considering that even the most exceptional clone P.3000 movement found in high-quality replica watches only offers a 5-day power reserve.

In terms of stability, the clone Cal. 52010 movement meets the stringent criteria of an outstanding movement, ensuring reliable and accurate timekeeping. Despite featuring a see-through case back design, there is no cause for concern regarding its authenticity being discerned as a fake movement. Below, you’ll find a more detailed specification of the replica.
