The Blue Dream: Review the IWC Portugieser Chronograph Edition “150 Years” 41.5-mm Watch Replica

At the beginning of last year, IWC released five different watch collections in celebration of the Schaffhausen-based company’s 150th anniversary. This is our hands-on look at the IWC Portugieser Chronograph Edition ‘150 Years’ 41.5-mm Watch Replica IW371601. I consider that these are particularly handsome IWC Portugieser watches with a nice mixture of technical competency, wearing comfort, value, and design.

Timeless Design

Each is limited to 2,000 pieces, the white-dialed is reference IW371602 variant that excites me. The other version is the IWC Portugieser Chronograph men’s watch replica IW371601 with a lacquered blue dial. The generous subdials cause a stylistic conflict at the 6 and the 12. IWC solves this problem by truncating these numerals, a decision that shows the self-confidence of the brand’s designers. The stark white dial with black hour markers evokes the ship deck-style clock that the Portugieser design was originally inspired by. The hands are blued-steel and offer sublime contrast and a hint of color, which flatters pretty much any watch dial rather nicely.

With this watch on your wrist, you’re appropriately dressed in every situation. And the large size and lucid styling of the subdials and numerals make the Portugieser easy to read. But this holds true only when a light source is available. With a noteworthy abscense of luminous material on the dial, this model leaves its wearer uninformed in the dark.

The Case

The IWC Portugieser Chronograph replica case here is 41mm wide and just 13.1mm thick. The iconic Portugieser-style case looks as good as ever, and the case is water-resistant to 30m.

The Movement

IWC has equipped a limited anniversary edition of its popular Portugieser Chronograph with a new, favorably priced, manufacture movement, thus making an already handsome model even more attractive. IWC responded by filling a 41.5-mm-diameter steel case with Caliber 74H4, which was originally used in pocketwatches and is more than 38 mm in diameter.

Automatic Caliber 5000 ticked inside the Portugieser Automatic, which was released in a limited edition of 2,000 pieces. The caliber amassed a seven-day power reserve and showed the current status of its “fuel tank” on an indicator at 3 o’clock, opposite a subdial for the seconds at 9.
