Well, today we’ve got news on both fronts for you, with a new fake IWC Portuguese Chronograph Classic watch launched after a day of sport in Russia. IWC has had a long standing partnership with the Laureus Sport For Good Foundation, hosting events and creating limited edition timepieces that celebrate the foundation’s work and give a little back.
After, the new Portuguese Chronograph Classic was revealed, with a case back featuring a drawing from 16-year-old student Masha Nikulina.
The latest Laureus event with IWC was hosted last week in Moscow at a boarding school for intellectually disabled students. The students had the opportunity to play table tennis and basketball with top Russian athletes including gymnast Alexei Nemov and synchronized swimmer Angelika Timanina. Mechanically, they are identical to the previous versions of the Portuguese Chronograph Classic, featuring the caliber 89361, an in-house chronograph movement that uses the nested chronograph totalizers at 12 o’clock. It’s a serious chrono with classic Portuguese styling.
The blue dial IWC Portuguese Chronograph Classic replica “Laureus Sport For Good Foundation” is a limited edition of 1,000 stainless steel watches.
The biggest update here is the rich blue dial that the Laureus watches are known for. It looks particularly striking here, with the silver applied numerals and white printing standing out nicely and the red tip of the chronograph seconds hand adding a little extra contrast.
Finally there is the caseback engraving, a nice reminder that this is a mens IWC copy watch doing some good beyond your wrist.
