Most watch factories will cease accepting orders from today, and shipping services will be unavailable until after the conclusion of our New Year holiday. Both watch factories and shipping companies are expected to resume operations on February 6th, allowing them nearly a month-long holiday break. We wish all of you a healthy and prosperous 2023, and a joyous Chinese New Year.
Now, let’s turn our attention to the introduction of a new IWC Portuguese chronograph replica watch that Z factory unveiled just three days ago. This Portuguese chronograph model comes with a stainless steel bracelet, marking a departure from ZF’s previous releases, which featured leather straps. There are two variants available: one with a green dial and the other with a white dial.
The Portuguese Chronograph is one of ZF’s flagship models, alongside the Portuguese 7 Days, both of which have garnered international acclaim. While ZF’s Portuguese replicas initially sold well, it appears that interest has waned in recent times. Nevertheless, these elegant timepieces hold timeless appeal, and they make a worthy addition to any watch collection.
Crafted entirely from solid 316L stainless steel, the watch features a substantial 41mm case diameter with a thickness of approximately 14mm. This moderate case thickness is generally well-accepted, even considering the Asia 7750 chronograph movement powering the replica. The case exhibits a polished, smooth, round bezel, harmonizing with the polished lugs. Notably, the case sides are horizontally brushed, creating a striking contrast with the polished case lines above. The solid stainless steel bracelet seamlessly integrates with the case.
The transparent case back reveals the chronograph movement inside, offering full chronograph functionality and a striking resemblance to the IWC 69355 Calibre. Many individuals have purchased these IWC Portuguese Chronograph replica watches from ZF, and there have been few to no reported movement issues. The quality of ZF Portuguese replicas has been widely praised.
However, it’s essential to exercise caution when operating the clasp. Open and close it gently, utilizing the push button on the clasp rather than applying excessive force to pull the buckle open. This precaution will help prevent damage to the clasp, similar to the issue observed with ZF VC Overseas watches.
