IWC Portofino Chronograph

A pretentious and very luxurious watch, the Portofino Chronograph is definitely an interesting addition to all IWC watches. This beautifully crafted accessory comes with bold lines and a sporty touch. It is made to resemble the cockpit of the famous 1960 Italian sports cars and it definitely does a great job with its beautiful materials and automatic 75329 calibre. So if you are looking for a watch that would quench your thirst for sports cars but look pretty elegant with any outfit, this particular model is the perfect watch for you. However, if you don’t have the finances necessary for such a watch, perhaps a better alternative would be to look for a replica, but not all replicas are good and here we have two watches, put side by side so that we can judge whether the replica is a good alternative.

The first difference that we notice between them is on the bracelet; on the original watch we see that there are smaller links and the pattern is much more detailed but on the replica there is a rougher design. Another problem is with the chronographs, first because they have different numbers on them and second, because they are smaller, making the markings on top and bottom seem larger than the ones on the original watch. When it comes to the numbers on them, the top chronograph has the following numbers on the original watch: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30. As it’s sometimes the case with chronograph replica watches, the numbers on subdial are different: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60; on the bottom chronograph, we see numbers 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 on the original watch but numbers 20, 40 and 60 on the replica watch.

The chronometer on the watch also seems to have different numbers and while on the original watch it only shows 60, IWC replica watch has a chronometer with 3, 6, 9, and 12 written on it. The last difference between these watches is the seconds hand as it has a slightly different design on the replica, but nothing major. Besides that, these are all the differences that we can see between these two watches.
