Hands On: 2021 New IWC Portofino Chronograph 39 mm Watch Replica

Launched in 1984, the IWC Portofino replica has been one of the most popular collections since its inception, and is available for both men and women. With its elegant round case and understated dial design that never goes out of style, the Portofino collection offers a wide range of sizes and styles. Now, the brand has added three new models to the collection: a IWC Portofino 39 mm black dial watch replica IW391404 with gold-plated hour markers and hands, a green dial with rhodium-plated hour markers and hands (model IW391405 replica) and a silver dial with gold-plated hour markers and hands (model IW391406 replica).

The Case & Dial

The IWC Portofino Chronograph 39 replica models are outfitted with either a black, green, or silver-plated dial. All the cases are in stainless steel and measure 39 mm in diameter and 12.8 mm thick — a “very wearable” size, according to IWC, that is reduced from the 42-mm dimensions of previous versions of the IWC Portofino Chronograph. The dials all bear the stylistic cues of the Portofino collection, which debuted in 1984, including the classical combination of simple stick hour markers and Roman numerals. On the chronograph models, the latter are largely displaced by subdials at 12 and 6 o’clock, for 30 elapsed minutes and running seconds, respectively.

Each IWC watch has distinct, contrasting details: the black- and silver-dial models feature gold-plated hands and markers, while the green-dialed watch uses rhodium-plating for those features. The black, green, and silver dials are matched up with, again respectively, brown, green, and black alligator leather straps. The classically rounded cases are water resistant to 30 meters, with solid casebacks, convex sapphire crystals, and pump-style chronograph pushers flanking the fluted crown.

The Caseback

Behind those steel casebacks, IWC has installed the automatic Caliber 79350, the tried-and-true, ETA 7750-based movement found in chronograph models throughout IWC’s collection. It includes 31 jewels, ticks at a frequency of 28,800 vph (4 Hz), and holds a 44-hour power reserve. In addition to its integrated stopwatch — and the date and day display that have been excised from the base movement for increased dial simplicity — the movement includes a hacking seconds function that allows for precise time setting and resetting.

Price

The new IWC Portofino Chronograph 39mm replica comes with a brown, green or black leather strap with a steel pin buckle.
