Next to the entry-level automatic model is a new take on the cheap fake IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar 42. Here again, it’s a simplified and slightly more compact take on an existing complication, powered by a simpler movement. Compared to the oversized 44mm 7-day automatic QP, this version has a 42.4mm case and a display that has been streamlined a bit too. Here again, all the signature elements of the luxury replica IWC Portugieser collection are present, with a new colour that is found all over the dial, with no other contrasting colour than the white tracks and rhodium-plated accents.
Inside the case, and following the strategy of more compact and slightly less expensive models, this IWC replica for sale is powered by the same base movement as the Automatic 40 with a perpetual calendar module on top. This calibre 82650 thus beats at 4Hz and boasts 60h of power reserve when the Pellaton winding system has done its job. The steel-and-green 1:1 fake IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar 42 (ref. IW344207) is now available and is part of the permanent collection. It is priced at EUR 23,200.
