Together with the new IWC portofino chrono24 fake watch Portofino Hand-Wound Monopusher Chronograph,”IWC introduces its first-ever model with an innovative single push-button chronograph” for Watches & Wonders 2015 (basically SIHH for Asia, occurring in Hong Kong this Fall). The timing of the introduction, perhaps not without a hint of irony, is fortunate, as it comes shortly after we’ve discussed in length this particular complication in our current”Why Monopusher Chronographs Are Primitive & A Brief History Of The Chronograph Watch Complication” feature article. With all that’s been mentioned there, however, no prejudices on our thoughts, let us see how this latest addition to the IWC portofino chronograph edition 150 years replica watch Portofino lineup is new.
Offered in two colorways — in 18k white gold with a black, metallic brown dial and in 18k red gold with a silver plated dial — the new IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Monopusher Chronograph features IWC’s in-house made 59360 standard. At 45 millimeters wide, IWC portofino chronograph milanese bracelet replica watch once again went for what likely is the biggest diameter that could work for this a historic and really more dressy-looking piece such as the Portofino. The thin and short lugs are barely noticeable alongside the steroid-infused round case and its thin bezel; the diameter of the ring, thinness of the lugs and expansive dial are all part of a bold game with proportions — striking the right balance between a larger case size and the limiting factor of specifying design elements (including the smaller and delicate-looking lugs of the Portofino) is not always simple.
There is one good justification for this gargantuan size for the otherwise more elegant and less”dernier cri” set: an in-house movement that packs 8 days of power reserve. The 59360 is the latest iteration of this brand’s solidly built 59000 foundation 8-day caliber, now featuring a monopusher chronograph complication — IWC Portofino Chrono replica watch did debut a unique piece Portofino earlier this season with this motion indoors for the Tribeca Film Festival.
Running at a contemporary 4 Hertz frequency and supplying 8 days’ worth of electricity reserve takes a gigantic and powerful mainspring and mainspring barrel that, in turn, require quite a lot of property. Therefore the 59360 is a large movement which fills up the 45mm-wide case superbly — and since that is a rare sight today, about a decade after the coming of in-house calibers, IWC portofino chronograph rose gold imitation watch engineers and designers really do deserve to be praised for creating such a genuinely modern caliber family.
The outcome is a relatively clean appearance once we consider the amount of functions and indications on front — albeit, this can be further imposed by the noticeable absence of any texturing on the silver dial along with the subtle sunburst finishing on the slate colored version. It’s only the power reserve indicator’s arch which conserves the piece from perfect symmetry. On some other iterations of this base caliber, we’ve seen the power reserve dial moved into the situation back side, and while that arguably would have been possible with the 59360 too, this little and exceptionally useful feature is currently utilized to generate the front appear that bit more complex — and, possibly, persuasive.
The IWC portofino chronograph black imitation watch Portofino Hand-Wound Monopusher Chronograph is a natural extension into the collection, after date and big-date models depending on the exact same caliber. The chronograph increases the complexity of the bit — both technically and aesthetically — while the monopusher design, in this rare instance, applies the evergreen rule of”less is more,” permitting the perfectly round Portofino case to stay intact and — save for the modern size — timeless.
