The history of the cheap fake IWC Portuguese goes back nearly 100 years to two businessmen from Portugal who were looking for a large watch with a chronometer movement. The first Portuguese watch (the name wasn’t used back then; it was referred to as the IWC 325) had a diameter of 43mm. It was a huge watch for that time. Fast forward to 1995, and perfect replica IWC UK introduced a rattrapante chronograph (IW3712) into its Portuguese family of high quality fake watches.
In 1998, best 1:1 super clone IWC followed it up with a standard chronograph (IW3714), which would go on to become the line’s bestseller. This watch used the ETA/Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement but completely fit the serene style of the AAA quality fake IWC Portuguese line with Arabic numerals and just two sub-dials at 12 and 6 o’clock.
I have selected the cheap replica IWC Portuguese Chronograph ref. IW3714, and this example dates to 2001. It has a modest 41mm case, but it wears larger due to the very thin bezel (and large dial aperture). This particular find comes complete with the original Swiss movement fake IWC box and papers. It is being offered from the United Kingdom for £4,350.
