Rattrapante chronographs, also referred to as split-seconds replica chronographs, are a type of chronograph with two seconds hands that allow for the ability to time multiple simultaneous events, such as runners during a race. It can also time a series of events, such as the laps a single person makes on a track.
One of the hands, the so-called “rattrapante” hand, sits either directly on top of or underneath the main chronograph hand. The rattrapante hand is started and returns to zero simultaneously with the main chronograph hand. A special push-piece and an additional mechanism make it possible for the rattrapante hand to be repeatedly stopped (so that split times can be read) and then instantly brought in to renewed synchrony with the main chronograph hand by flying back to catch up with it. (“Rattrapanter” is French for “to catch again” or “to take again.”) All this occurs without affecting the motion of the main chronograph hand.
Over the past few years, we’ve seen the split-second chronograph trending upward as more and more brands of all sizes add the complication to their arsenal. Here’s a selection of some noteworthy copy rattrapante chronographs on the market today.
In 2017, IWC released a series of limited-edition best quality copy IWC Portugieser Rattrapante Chronographs to be sold exclusively at a selection of its boutique locations around the world. These locations included Geneva, Munich, Paris, Milan and Toronto/Vancouver, with each watch featuring a specific aesthetic to appeal to its targeted audience.
Our favorite of these models during their initial release was the “Boutique Genève” edition IWC Portugieser Ref. IW371221 replica with brown leather strap that was limited to 50 total pieces and included an engraving of the title of Geneva’s 1602 anthem, Cé qu’è lainô, on its caseback. IWC introduced its first rattrapante chronograph to the Portugieser collection in 1995 when Richard Habring developed a split-seconds module for the iconic Swiss Valjoux 7750 movement. It uses a push-button at 10 o’clock to control the movement of the upper hand, while the lower hand is managed by the pusher at 2 o’clock. More recently, IWC released the Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph Ceratanium in the lead-up to SIHH 2019.
The momentum perfect IWC replica generated in 2019 has continued unimpeded this year, with a slightly dressier focus. Here, we’re treated with the reinvigoration of the stoic, masculine, yet classy line in the new IWC 2020 Portugieser Collection. With the Portugieser Chronograph, IWC have stuck with their attitude of evolution over revolution, upgrading all of the regular production models with the new in-house calibre 69355 column-wheel chronograph movement — a visceral treat for the eyes when viewed through the display caseback. Three new sunburst dial variations are captivating, with the steel case offering a mossy-forest green or a rich oxblood red, and an 18k yellow gold case flaunting a classic navy blue.
The top quality fake Portugieser Automatic 40 brings a touch of refined, yet not understated, simplicity in a well-proportioned package. The steel-cased and white-dialled variant is available with either blue or gold hands and markers, while the blue dial’s steel highlights are clean and crisp. Should you want something that suits the dressier side of life, there is also a model in 18k gold. The fun doesn’t stop with the simpler sides of the collection, either, as the highly-complicated Perpetual Calendars and Yacht Club Chronograph models have all made an impact upon their release. Check here for a detailed breakdown of each of these models.

Today’s model is a new 2020 luxury IWC Portugieser replica watch One of the more unique leading men in Hollywood’s golden age was Robert Mitchum. You see, he didn’t act in the traditional sense of the word. Rather, Mitchum was himself, which is exactly what audiences expected when they paid their hard-earned money for a ticket to see his films. He is on record for having once said, “I kept the same suit for six years and the same dialogue. They just changed the title of the picture and the leading lady.” Talk about self-awareness. But there is something to be said about the notion that the core of something (or someone, in Mitchum’s case) does not need to change in order to persist. The title and the leading lady are extremely important aspects of a film, but if the star of the picture has the right stuff, well… just ride that wave.
In the world of watches, there are a few examples which are emblematic of this idea. Think of the Rolex Submariner, the Omega Speedmaster, or even the AP Royal Oak. These watches are the movie stars. The Swiss automatic movement replica IWC Portugieser Chronograph holds a similar station within the International Watch Company as those aforementioned models do to their respective brands. It is a foundational piece in the modern IWC collection, and it represents the idea that not all iconic watches need have been produced in the 1960s and ’70s. The IWC Portugieser Chronograph is Robert Mitchum. It has a sense of style, a sense of identity, and only requires minor tweaks here and there over time, but the essence always remains. That’s what people appreciate about it. This is actually my second go-around spending time with this watch, having previously gone Hands-On with it in April. Not much about my opinions have changed, but having now spent a week with it on my wrist, some of those opinions – or notions – have become more deeply entrenched in my psyche. During my week with this watch, I tried not to augment anything about my daily routine, just to see how the watch kept up – if it interfered in any way, and how (if at all) it improved anything I did. I am talking things as innocuous as brewing a pot of morning coffee, or the more active task of sitting down to play the guitar. It was my full intention to put this watch through its paces, but I will warn you – especially in these crazy times – I don’t live the most extreme lifestyle. If you’re hoping to hear stories about how this watch fares skydiving, or on the racetrack, you’ve come to the wrong place. When it comes to a watch like this – with a design and size that is known and expected – there is a certain amount of the wearer adapting to the watch, as opposed to it being the other way around. You buy this watch because you want this watch, and most of the time, you know what you’re getting into. For those who do not, I will say that it manages to scratch two distinct itches: That of the sport chronograph, as well as the more “dressy” – stately – chronograph. There is a certain understated elegance and self-assuredness to the entire package of this watch that allows for a great deal of versatility in terms of wear. The case size of this IWC replica watch with blue hands, as mentioned, is 41mm, but a number alone does not tell the complete story. The watch effectively has no bezel at all. Given that the model I wore was the silver dial variant, the watch wears larger than the 41mm diameter would suggest as the silver dial (similar to a white-dial watch) gives off the illusion that the watch is much larger than it is. This size notwithstanding, I expected the piece to wear a bit bigger on wrist going in. There were no issues with the lugs hanging off the sides of my wrist, and the case laid flat and comfortably when worn. The overall thickness of the watch is about 13.1mm, which sounds tall but is virtually an imperceptible measurement when the watch is on. I did not for a moment consider this to be a thick or tall watch.
As has been the case for about 22 years, the watch is affixed to a leather strap (although recent updates have seen a change there as well). The version I had the chance to wear came on a blue alligator leather strap, which matched the blue accents on the dial. The strap itself is attached to a double deployant clasp system, which is one of the few gripes I have with this piece. For me, a watch is part of my person – something I don’t have to think about. Conversely, I take great enjoyment – at various intervals of my day – in taking off my watch, staring at it, engaging with the crown, etc. It is an object of affection, and I tend to be quite affectionate. A clasp should open and close – no need to reinvent the wheel. This clasp, being a double deployant, requires the opening of two segments in order to put the watch on, or take it off. Once the initial clasp segment is opened, it is actually not clear that a second segment needs to be undone as well (I recall spending about five minutes in a Rodin-type state trying to figure this out). Issues with the clasp function aside, it certainly keeps the watch secure to the wrist when closed, and everything wears comfortably. What more can be said about a dial design which has persisted and resisted change all these years? Well not much, but wearing something and experiencing it in the metal definitely brings a fresh perspective. The dial of steel IWC Portugieser copy watch here is silver, with a textured gradient pattern and accompanying radial patterns in the sub-dials. A hallmark of the design of this watch is the applied set of numerals which adorn the dial. The style of the numerals themselves evokes a more classic era of watchmaking. In contrast to this classic ideal is the text applied to the right- and left-most sections of the dial surface. In a lot of ways, the motif embodied there is something more akin to mid-century design. The combination of both of these elements is unmistakably IWC, however.
Especially on this model, the idea of contrast is perpetuated through a number of elements, each in blue. There is a set of applied blue circular markings representing the minutes, which surround the dial along with the numerals. Every single one of the hands, including the leaf handset for hours and minutes, is also done in blue. The way the blue works off of the silver, and matches with the strap, creates a nice uniformity in the design of this watch overall.
Stunning for 2020, the perfect copy IWC Portugieser Chronograph watches are presented with new versions. In addition to two steel versions with evident dials, the brand also puts forward the red gold form.
Simply, the novel replica IWC watches apply the integration of blue color and red gold material, building very fancy visual effect. Together, the hands and Arabic numerals are all presented in red gold, forming a very obvious contrast with the blue dials.
Very fashionable, the surprising IWC reproduction watches have two kinds of blue straps, smooth leather and crocodile leather straps, ensuring you the most comfortable wearing.
IWC has maintained the close partnership with Lawrence Sports Foundation since 2005. Moreover, the special perfect fake IWC watches have been launched to celebrate it. It is a Portugieser chronograph with manual-wining mechanical movement.
What’s more, IWC welcomes Bryan Habana to become the new member of Lawrence World Sports Institute. Christoph Grainger-Herr, the CEO of IWC, gave this special IWC Portugieser copy with blue dial to former South African Football League star.
The imitation watch with black leather strap is the 14th that IWC created as Lawrence Sports Foundation special edition. It is also the brand’s first one-button Lawrence chronograph. These new watches are limited to only 500 pieces.

There are rumour that the IWC Portugieser chronograph watches will be suspended. But now it is proved to be incorrect. In 1995, the Ref.3712 was launched. With the elegant and generous appearance, the delicate IWC Portugieser copy watches sell well for more than 20 years.
The truth is that the Portugieser equipped with ETA movement will be discontinued. And all the Portugieser chronograph models will be driven by the new self-manufactured movement Cal.69355 and you will appreciate the beauty of the movement. While after the warranty extends to 8 years, the Portugieser could be still one of the most chronograph watches in watchmaking industry.
The perfect IWC fake watches always interpret the extreme elegance especially the Portugieser series. In fact, the elegant IWC Portugieser fake watches are the dream of majority of men by the classic aesthetics and graceful appearance.
While the new IWC copy watch with white dial reinterprets the leisured elegance by the unique blue elements of Bucherer. IWC Portugieser entirely embodies the minimalist aesthetics. The obvious blue elements achieve the perfect balance with the white dial.
The overall tone of this imitation watch with steel case sports a distinctive look of summer style. It is not only from the fresh blue elements, but also benefit from the material of the fabric straps. It is the ideal choice for everyday use which must be favored by the watch lovers and watch collectors.
The perfect fake IWC Portugieser has been chosen by many stylish men as their first choices. Why are so many men interested in them? Today we will discuss it together.
Firstly, it is undeniable that the IWC copy with white dial is really charming. In order to make the timepiece visually large, the bezel of the Portugieser chronograph has been designed to be very narrow. Someone even tells that the Portugiser hasn’t been amounted with a bezel.
Some watch lovers prefer the self-manufactured movement to the general movement. But in my mind, if it is reliable, precise and stable, then it is a good movement. The famous Portugieser watches are still equipped with the accurate general movement.
In a word, these elegant imitation watches are good choices for men for any occasion.
Referring to IWC, many people will think of the Portugieser which is the most symbolic collection of the brand. The perfect fake IWC Portugieserhas attracted majority of men since 1940s with its huge size, good readability, exquisite Arabic numerals hour marker and elegant feuille hand. Many years passed, these iconic features have been maintained.
But today’s model has been slightly modified, but after the slightly change, it is still classic. If not looking carefully, you will not find the differences since the basic elements are the same. In fact, the lugs of the 42 mm IWC copy watch are slightly curved, making the whole dial look more widely. Just as what its name tells, the timepiece perfectly interprets the classic.
Other irrelevant elements have been moved from the knockoff watch with rose gold case. The oversized leaf-shaped hands have been replaced with the elegant hands to make the timepiece look pure and clean.
I was not interested in the wristwatches at all for I think the phone was much more convenient than the timepieces. But after seeing the perfect fake watches of my friends, the images of the mechanical watches have stayed in my heart. After studying and researching the information on the forum, I decided to buy myself a luxury mechanical watch.
It is the classic IWC Portugieser copy with steel case. I think no one could stand up to the glamour of such an attractive timepiece. Majority of my friends chose the elegant IWC to enhance their charm. The actual watch is even much more beautiful than the picture.
You will find the details of the classic IWC imitation watch are all exquisite and distinctive. For example, please look at the clasp. It is quite different from the ordinary model. Comparing to the ordinary Portugieser, this special edition features a lacquer white dial which is much brighter and fuller than the ordinary one. So without any doubt, I chose the Portugieser 150 Years special edition eventually.
