Tom Brady, 45, announced on social media today that he’s retiring from the NFL, this time “for good.” We’ll leave his football accolades to the sports websites – seven-time Super Bowl champion, three-time NFL MVP, all-time leader in passing touchdowns, yards, and completions (we could go on) – and instead focus on the watch we saw Brady wearing as he strolled a red carpet in Los Angeles last night: an AAA replica IWC Portuguese Hand-Wound Tourbillon Squelette ref. 5462.
The night before posting his retirement video, Brady was in Los Angeles for the premiere of 80 For Brady, a movie about four friends (played by Jane Fonda, Sally Field, Rita Moreno, Lily Tomlin) who travel to watch Brady and the Patriots play in Super Bowl LI. Brady arrived looking dapper as ever in black jeans and a black leather jacket. And underneath the cuff of that jacket you can catch a glimpse of the Portuguese Hand-Wound Tourbillon Squelette from 2015. Swiss made replica IWC produced just 25 examples of this watch – it’s one of those rare watches you wouldn’t have even found on IWC’s website. The Hand-Would Tourbillon Squelette features a 43mm 18-karat red gold case, but of course, the main attraction is the fully-skeletonized dial and movement, with the tourbillon on full display at 9 o’clock.
It’s a limited edition based on the Portuguese Hand-Wound ref. 5463 that was offered in both red and white gold, already one of luxury super clone IWC’s more impressive super clone watches online from a technical perspective. For Brady’s watch, IWC skeletonized the movement to create the caliber 98920, even changing the structure of the movement and its bridges to maximize the dramatic effect of the skeletonized movement. Back in 2015 when the best quality replica IWC Portuguese Hand Wound Squelette was quietly offered, its MSRP was around $100,000.
If you’ve been following along, you know Brady’s a long-time Swiss movement fake IWC ambassador at this point. We talked to him on Hodinkee Radio back in 2021, fresh off his seventh Super Bowl victory, when he shared a wristshot of his IWC GST Chronograph Ratrrapante, the watch that he said started it all for him. Of course, he’s an AAA super clone IWC brand ambassador, but it’s cool to see brand ambassadors wearing rarities from the companies they represent. Produced in just 25 examples, the IWC Portuguese Tourbillon replica for sale he wore on the red carpet last night is certainly a deep cut.
Great replica watch, Tom, and congrats on a hell of a career.
The year 1995 was as eventful as it gets. It was the year the first Toy Story movie was released, the year Operation Desert Storm officially ended, and it was the last time AFC Ajax won the UEFA Champions League. It also marked the debut of a classic IWC timepiece: the original Portugieser Minute Repeater Ref. IW5240. This was from a time when minute repeater wrist perfect US replica watches were much, much rarer; the Portugieser Minute Repeater was, then, understandably considered a Schaffhausen masterpiece. The fact that the Portugieser Minute Repeater came only two years after the market launch of the Portugieser collection made it all the more impressive. Production of the limited edition model, consisting four variants, was completed in 2005 after a ten-year run.
In 2006, IWC began introducing its second generation Portugieser minute repeaters. The luxury fake watches are strongly reminiscent of the seminal Ref. IW5240 but with subtle changes to the case and dial to carry it over to the modern era of Swiss made IWC replica watches. Three variants of the second generation were released in its lifetime, including a rose gold variant that is perhaps the most evocative and classical of the trio. Here, we bring you the details and our thoughts on the Portugieser Minute Repeater Ref. IW5242-02 in rose gold.
The Case, Dial, and Hands
The case of the Portugieser Minute Repeater Ref. IW5242-02 measures 43.00 mm in diameter and 12.50 mm in thickness. Inspired by pocket watches, IWC Portugieser copy watches for sale do tend to have larger cases. At 43.00 x 12.50 mm, the Ref. IW5242-02 can still be worn with no overhang on the average wrist despite being 1.00 mm bigger than its predecessor, thanks to sharply down-turned lugs. In comparison, its successor, the IW544907 that we know of today, has a whopping diameter of 44.2 mm and a thickness of 14.0 mm – dimensions that will certainly demand a larger-than-average wrist size to wield with panache. With a burly full-gold deployant clasp at the end of the brown alligator leather strap to act as a counterbalance, the IW5242-02 wears securely on the wrist and doesn’t feel top-heavy in spite of its large watch head.
Crafted in rose gold, the case is given a contrast of finishes, from satin-brushed flanks and repeater track to the polished crown, repeater slide, and bezel. Slim and concave in shape, the bezel accentuates the dial with tremendous efficacy. At the same time, the dome-shaped sapphire crystal gives the dial a sense of depth. The original Portugieser Minute Repeater was fitted with plexiglass instead, so the introduction of sapphire crystal to the second generation of repeaters can be seen as an inflection point towards more contemporary design.
The dial is distinctly Portugieser with the minimalist design, applied Arabic numerals, and feuille hands. For this rose gold variant, the dial is silvery opaline in execution, with a seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock adorned with fine concentric guilloche pattern. The key differences between the dials of the first and second generation cheap replica IWC Portugieser Minute Repeater watches are found on the ‘IWC’ signature and the minutes and seconds tracks. In the second generation repeaters, the contemporary ‘IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN’ signature is used, whereas the ‘International Watch Co SCHAFFHAUSEN’ signature written in vintage font is used in the first generation. The railway-style minutes and seconds tracks on the Ref. IW5242-02 are another telltale sign of a newer Portugieser watch. Specimens from before mid-00s tend to feature dots for minutes and sticks for seconds.
While there have been changes to the case and dial relative to its predecessor, the movement remains a constant. Driving the Ref. IW5242-02 is none other than the 54-jewel Calibre 95290 that also powered the very first Portugieser Minute Repeater in 1995. In the spirit of the original Portugieser in the 1930s, the Calibre 95290 is inspired from old wholesale super clone IWC Calibre 95 pocket watches movement. The size of the movement is a dead-giveaway, with it filling up almost all 43 mm of the case. And there’s also the slow, huge balance wheel taking up one-third of the diameter of the movement.
All that said, it’s not just about size – it’s also the architecture. The Calibre 95290 has finger-style bridges that are typical of pocket watch movements and is open enough to reveal the entire gear train from the crown wheel, all the way to the escape wheel. It’s even got a proper centre wheel (one that’s actually located in the centre).
The construction of the Calibre 95290 is modular. The minute repeater mechanism – which was designed by Renaud et Papi – is not visible from the sapphire crystal case back as it sits just behind the dial. The chimes of the Calibre 95290 can be described as soft but sweet. It is clearly not going to be the loudest minute repeater around especially when compared to high-end specimens from the past decade, but it’s got a certain musicality to it that will stir emotions amongst connoisseurs. The beauty of the Calibre 95290 is that at the bottom, you’ve got an old-school pocket watch movement, while up top you’ve got “new-school” Renaud et Papi high horology – the best of both worlds.
The finishing on the Calibre 95290 is exemplary as evidenced by what you’d see through the sapphire crystal case back. The bridges are decorated with even Côtes de Genève, with edges beveled and polished. There aren’t just rounded angles on the movement but also sharp outward angles which are harder to execute. Ample perlage adorns the base plate while the heads of screws that secure the bridges are polished to a sheen.
The Competitive Landscape
The minute repeater is one of the most coveted and revered complication among Swiss made replica watches collectors and it’s easy to understand why. Firstly, it is difficult to assemble and even more difficult to perfect, making it fairly rare. Secondly, the way it tells time sonically – in an era where time is sterilely displayed on a smartphone – is whimsical and stirs all sorts of emotions. While the number of minute repeaters hitting the market increases with each passing year, the Portugieser Minute Repeater Ref. IW5242-02 manages to remain more than relevant with its elegant dial design and fascinating movement. Only 250 pieces of the watch was ever made and production ended thirteen years ago in 2009. To buy one of these beauties today, you’ll have to dive into the secondary watch market.
And if that isn’t your thing, why not take a chance with the current 2022 fake IWC Portugieser Minute Repeater watches? The Ref. IW5449-07 gives off a similar vibe to the Ref. IW5242-02 and would look indistinguishable were it not for the relocated seconds sub-dial and the larger case. Beating inside the case however is an in-house manufactured IWC movement, also pocket watch-inspired: the Calibre 98950. The Calibre 98950 has a three-quarter style bridge, a true center wheel, and an immense balance wheel beating at 2.5 Hz. The minute repeater mechanism, once again, is found underneath the dial and cannot be seen through the sapphire crystal case back. The sound profile of the repeater is similar to that of its predecessor: soft but sweet. Priced at CHF91,000, the Ref. IW5449-07 is limited to 500 pieces.
For a minute repeater that is a tad dressier, look no further than the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Minute Repeater Ultra-Thin. With such a clean and pristine dial, and a thickness of just 8.1 mm, minute repeater wrist replica watches store site don’t get much more elegant than this. In spite of its slim case, the Patrimony Minute Repeater Ultra-Thin produces very audible chimes with musicality that is almost unparalleled in the industry. The platinum variant of the watch made its debut in Watches and Wonders 2015, seven years ago, but remains the gold standard for minute repeaters today. Priced at well over half a million Singapore dollars when first introduced, this – like the IW5242-02 – is another rare bird that can only be acquired in the secondary market since it is no longer part of the current Vacheron Constantin collection.
The Ref. IW5242-02 is true to its DNA. From its case size and dial design, to its pocket-watch-esque movement, the piece serves as a bridge between the first and latest generations of IWC Portugieser Minute Repeater fake watches paypal. It is a watch that oozes class in spite of its sizeable proportions. It does not seek attention, but reserves all pleasures associated with it – mechanical or musical – for its owner to enjoy in private.
IWC launched the 1:1 Swiss replica IWC Portugieser Yacht Club watches in 2010 into the sporty yet elegant world of sailing. For 2020, the nautical chronograph model has a classic look and a steel bracelet upgrade.
The new IWC Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph is high quality fake watches you can wear with confidence anywhere at the marina. A first glance shows that the third generation of the sportiest Portugieser model, our test watch, is designed to be both a nautical timepiece and a luxury accessory. The first impression is confirmed upon closer inspection of its polished and satin-finish case, sunburst blue dial and brightly polished hands. Every component is flawlessly finished and worthy to be part of the supremely elegant US online replica IWC Portugieser collection watches.
For the first time in its 10-plus-year history, this IWC Portugieser Yacht Club copy watches for sale boasts a steel bracelet rather than a rubber or leather strap — a sturdy but elegant IWC steel bracelet with brushed outer links and polished inner links. Shortening the bracelet involves simply pressing a button on the back of each row of sturdy links to remove it. Unlike simpler bracelet designs, using screws or hammering is not needed.
Inside the safety folding clasp, there is also a quick extension piece that quickly and easily lengthens the bracelet by up to 7 mm. Pressing the polished “IWC” button on the outer bar of the clasp extends the bracelet in seven increments — without ever removing the replica watches for men from your wrist. Two safety buttons round out the sturdy and well-designed folding clasp.
In addition to the bracelet, the dial has also been updated. The central chronograph hand is now steel-gray instead of red, and the date window has been shifted from the 3 o’clock position to the small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock. Both changes enhance the elegance of the Yacht Club and were well received by our editorial staff.
The elegant impression is diminished, however, by the enlargement of the already considerable stainless-steel case from 43.5 mm to 44.6 mm. Our editorial staff admitted that no one among them had a wrist to match its substantial dimensions.
Even so, the large, heavy Swiss made fake watches is quite comfortable to wear thanks to ergonomically shaped sloping lugs and a supple steel bracelet. Unfortunately, the flexibility and adjustability of the IWC’s bracelet results in relatively large gaps between the links, which can catch and pull hair.
Components taken from earlier generations of the Yacht Club include the sturdy and powerful in-house movement, Caliber 89361, with many excellent features like a 68-hour power reserve; a traditional column-wheel control mechanism; the brand’s own exceptionally efficient Pellaton dual-pawl winding system; a free-sprung, temperature-resistant Glucydur balance wheel; and a flyback function for the direct restarting of the running chronograph. It can also show off beautiful decorative finishes, gold-enhanced engraving and a gold IWC medallion on the skeletonized oscillating rotor. Another feature of the in-house movement is the combined 12-hour and 60-minute counter in the upper half of the dial, which is intended to show elapsed time intuitively, as on a clock. The combined counter is too small for everyday use, however, and its markings are too fine to read elapsed time to the minute quickly and easily. The chronograph seconds track around the dial is also extremely fine, and the central chronograph seconds hand is insufficiently long to fully reach it. In sum, it’s a mixed bag, with clearly legible time and date, and elapsed time that is much more difficult to read.
Our rate test revealed more about the Swiss movement. The electronic timing machine showed a negligibly small daily rate of +0.8 seconds, a maximum deviation between the positions of only 4 seconds and almost the same values when the chronograph is engaged. A two-week wearing test confirmed the small daily deviation with values between zero and +2 seconds — making our test best replica watches a reliable partner for everyday use.
In addition to the movement, another feature of the Yacht Club that hasn’t changed arouses mixed feelings — the pressure resistance of six bar that corresponds to water pressure at a depth of 60 meters. Although this may sound like a lot at first, the water resistance as it is tested under laboratory conditions is rather low for a nautical luxury sports super clone watches wholesale linked to the world of sailing. Coming in contact with spray or waves means a watch should be resistant to at least 10 bar or 100 meters to ensure a certain degree of security in a variety of different environments. And even though this still isn’t a lot, it is the current standard for any water sports fake watches shop site not explicitly designed for diving.
Advice for boat owners is simply this: it’s better to wear this watch in the evening, below deck, or to dinner at the marina, and either take it easy onboard during the day or rely on a sports replica watches paypal that is clearly defined as such. The new Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph is well equipped for normal everyday wear and light sports activities — and is the perfect gentleman sailor for social events on or below deck.
Over the course of the NBA season, we witnessed Giannis Antetokounmpo take huge strides. Perhaps the most amazing leap of all: from two-time MVP to… legit best replica watches collector. Before this season, Antetokounmpo wore only the Swiss made fake watches: the copy Rolex Oyster Perpetual watches, Rolex’s baseline model. That all changed in the offseason,over the course of the season, he assembled even more precious timepieces, including the beloved “Panda”-dial Rolex Daytona replica watches online, what looks like blue-bezel Rolex Submariner super clone watches for sale, and even a blinged-out Rolex “Rainbow” replica watches for men. This is huge progress from a guy who once loaded up on free water bottles! While we certainly wouldn’t have said boo if Antetokounmpo had worn the very fun Rainbow to the city-wide championship celebration in Milwaukee, he clearly had something else in mind with the luxury Rolex Sky-Dweller imitation watches.
You know who else wears the top knockoff Rolex Sky-Dweller watches that look a lot like the one on Antetokounmpo’s wrist? Michael Jordan. I’m not saying that’s the reason Giannis wore his, but I’m not not saying that, either. If the AAA perfect replica watches collector buys the specific 1:1 best fake Rolex Submariner watches because Steve McQueen wore it, why couldn’t Giannis do the same with MJ?
M. Night Shyamalan’s Replica IWC Portugieser Chronograph Watches
If you were trapped on a beach where every 30 minutes is the equivalent of an entire year—that’s the premise of Shyamalan’s new movie Old—wouldn’t you want a precise timing instrument? With the Swiss cheap fake IWC Chronograph watches, Shyamalan is always prepared to be plunged into one of his own horrifying plots.
Rattrapante chronographs, also referred to as split-seconds chronograph replica watches online wholesale, 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 rattrapante chronograph fake watches for men 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 1:1 top replica IWC Portugieser Ref. IW371221 watches 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 watches 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 watches 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 replica IWC Portugieser watches 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 watches online wholesale 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.
If you buy the perfect IWC fake watches after Nov.19 and register on official site, joining the IWC Care Project, your watches could enjoy the longer warranty which is now 8 years. It is the 3rd watch brand that provides 8-year warranty among all the watch brands of Richmond Group.
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.
