Sophisticated design and beautiful horology have to be celebrated. And when I visited the fake IWC Boutique last year to discover the brand’s 2020 novelties, the Schaffhausen-based brand had refreshed its luxury replica IWC line with a more youthful look and a well-deserved in-house movement.
While I was in love with the look and feel of the line, one of their novelties inevitably caught my eye: the blue dial replica IWC Portugieser Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph Boutique Edition.
This timepiece perfectly embodied what IWC is capable of and more.
The blue dial paired gracefully with the 18K Armor Gold case and matching indices. At 6 o’clock, the minute tourbillion is mesmerizing. But the retrograde date at 9 o’clock was, for me, the cherry on top of the cake. Although I saw it over a year ago, I cannot forget how beautifully executed the Swiss movement copy IWC Portugieser Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph Boutique Edition is.
