IW500107 is the first Portuguese watch with a warm rose gold case. Right after the beginning of its release, the watch was sought after by fans. Different from the previous style – most of which are equipped with stainless steel case, 500701 comes with rose gold case. The embedded hand on its silver dial also uses rose gold. The left and right symmetrical small dials are at the three o’clock position of the power reserve display and the nine o’clock position of the small second hand. From the appearance you may recognize this is the most classic design of the Replica IWC Portuguese series.
The Pellaton Automatic Movement
The watch is equipped with in-house 52010 movement, which has two most commendable features: the first is its special automatic winding movement. The traditional automatic mechanical watch uses the energy of the wrist motions to the winding the spring inside the watch. Through the wrist movement, the metal balance wheel of the calibre constantly rotating to promote the system function. Currently on the market almost all of the automatic mechanical watches are similar in terms of principle with the specific realization of a slight difference. In addition to Jaeger-LeCoultre, some of whose watch takes temperature changes as energy to make watch work. Replica IWC has always been a world-class watchmaking brand and its professional and technical aspects of a lot of commendable places, which we often say Pellaton automatic winding system. Today we see the IW500107 movement is a remarkable implementation of Pellaton automatic winding system. Besides, the 52010 movement is equipped with double barrel to ensure 7 days of power reserve, although this led to the case too large and too thick, but this is very rare among early long power watch which represents the peak skills of the watch industry at that time. In the internal configuration, most components of the movement are made of ceramic materials, which is meat to reduce the friction as much as possible.
Feel and Appearance
Look from the appearance, 52010 movement, upgraded from the 50000 movement, does look more beautiful. From the practical point of view, its winding efficiency is also higher. Such a slightly huge watch worn on a slightly slender wrist seems not to be too discord, probably because IW500701 the ear and the case of the convergence stick together with a certain degree of curvature, but too thick case really resulting in a little inconvenience while wearing in the daily dress .
In general, this is a seven-day power reserve Portuguese masterpiece. The watch’s design inherited the 1930s style of it predecessor, combined with today’s IWC top movement skills. Strongly recommend to buy.
