Swiss Fake IWC Portugieser Eternal Calendar Watch Is Accurate For 45 Million Years

How often do you set your fake watch? Your answer likely depends on how much you wear it. If you only use it occasionally, it’s likely you set it each time you pick it up. But if you sport the same watch daily (or keep it on a winder when not in use), you probably only adjust it when you notice a deviation. Annual calendar and perpetual calendar watches have made this task easier, but unless you’ve sworn off everything save for digital pieces, setting the time is a fact of watch ownership. And as collectors of vintage replica watches for sale with no quick-set date can attest, laboriously spinning forward the hands just to get the date window correct can make even the most hardened aficionado weep. So, we were understandably interested when Swiss made replica IWC announced its new Eternal Calendar is accurate for 45 million years. Well, the moon phase is, at least. The perpetual calendar complication? Your fiftieth great-grandchild might have to adjust once in the year 4000. Still, the new 1:1 fake IWC Portugieser Eternal Calendar watch is a remarkable achievement in watch movement design, and we saw it hands-on at Watches & Wonders 2024.

This mind-boggling capability has more to do with super-computing than the automatic mechanical movement might suggest. By using software to simulate trillions of gearing combinations, cheap replica IWC was able to identify a sequence that would provide the right system of timekeeping to enable the Eternal’s long-lasting accuracy. Of course, such breakthroughs in horology ought to be paired with equally noticeable aesthetics and on the dial, they certainly are. While the arrangement of aaa quality fake IWC perpetual calendar dials have always been captivating for both their symmetry as well as simplicity, the Eternal tweaks this approach, removing the seconds-track from the subdial at 9 o’clock, and updating the double-moonphase indication. Here, an understandably braggadocious label helps solve the cut-off numeral problem, replacing the chopped “12” with an “Eternal Calendar” branding. Left and right of the moonphase, the hemisphere indicators have also been simplified by the removal of the “N” and “S” labels, instead relying on intuitively shaped semi-circles to tell which part of the moonphase corresponds to the northern and southern hemispheres. Color has also been deleted, with the seven-day power reserve taking on a monochrome look that matches the dial’s overall appearance. All these updates connect in their own way to the biggest part of the cheap super clone Portugieser calendar’s refresh — the glass/lacquer construction that makes the dial text appear to be floating. Starting with a thick glass dial, Swiss movement replica IWC has coated the underside with white lacquer, then printed the text and applied the silver numerals on top. When paired with other dimensional elements like the hands, separate double-moonphase indicator, and a stepped cut-out at 4 o’clock, the Eternal’s dial takes on a depth that gives it an unmistakable character.

Top quality fake IWC’s Caliber 52640 automatic movement is the engine behind all this wizardry, and it’s on full display on the Eternal’s reverse side. Using a panoramic sapphire caseback used elsewhere in the new high end copy IWC Portugieser lineup, the inner workings can be clearly seen edge-to-edge. Those who occupy their spare time staring at watch movements will be able to quickly tell this is not your typical engine thanks to the unique gear layout toward the top of the caliber. And while it cannot be seen from the back, hidden inside the hard-working stack of metal is the 52640’s “400-year gear”, which (as the name suggests) rotates once every four centuries in order to correctly account for the years 2100, 2200, and 2300. These years, while they occur on the normal four-year leap year cycle, are not actually leap years, and if you find that confusing, imagine trying to make a watch movement that accounts for these irregularities. It’s these quirks that ultimately limit the Eternal Calendar’s functionality, although using the word “limit” to describe a watch that can theoretically keep time for twice as long as the entire anno domini period seems unfair. Nonetheless, these irregularities stack up and, sadly, mean the watch will need correction in the year 4000. Ironically, an easier task for the Caliber 52640 is the correct operation of the moonphase. Here, the moon’s 29.5 day schedule is so predictable, the Eternal can account for it until the year 45002024. That is not a typo. Amusingly, Swiss movement replica IWC has elected to advertise not the 45 million year moonphase on the movement’s rotor, but the seven-day power reserve.

Best Quality IWC Ingenieur Titanium Replica Watches

Plenty of contenders caught my attention this year, with Zenith’s Defy Revival Shadow, Tudor’s Black Bay 54, Zodiac’s Super Sea Wolf Pro-Diver GMT, and the newly COSC-certified Serica 5303-3 all making the hair on the back of my neck stand up. But my personal champ for ‘23 has to be perfect replica IWC’s reinvented Ingenieur, specifically the titanium variant. This is a copy watch I could easily wear all day, every day, in almost any situation.

A new Ingenieur was grist for the rumour mill for what seemed like forever, but the veil was finally lifted at Watches & Wonders – and I’d say best 1:1 replica IWC delivered the goods in a resounding way. As brutally charming as Gérald Genta’s 1976 original “Jumbo” is, it’s not without its quirks, specifically in the wearability department, and AAA quality fake IWC has addressed those issues quite successfully. Gone are the awkward male protrusion and substantial case girth, replaced by a bracelet with near-perfect drape, as Andrew stated upon its release.

But the killer app for me is the availability of the new Swiss movement copy IWC Ingenieur in a full titanium case and bracelet. At first, you can’t connect the visual weight of the watch with its actual weight: such is the disorienting feel of titanium. It nails the brief of a forward-thinking technical high quality copy watch, one that’s strong, lightweight, sculpted, and highly resistant to magnetism. But really, it just looks devastating, in the best possible way, still futuristic some 47 years after Genta’s original design was launched.

Hands-On Debut: AAA Quality Replica IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month ‘Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom’ Watches

Many watch enthusiasts enjoy seeing luxury replica watches connected to the world of film and television, although it is often the ways that the connections are established that become the divisive topic among the enthusiast community. Rather than putting a character’s face on the dial of a watch, a far more nuanced approach is to create a timepiece that could believably exist within that character’s respective world. However, perfect fake IWC has gone one step further and collaborated with the new Warner Bros. Pictures film Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom to create glowing red and blue prop watches that will be worn on-screen by the movie’s villains.

Additionally, beyond its involvement in supplying the watches for the film, the Schaffhausen-based manufacture has taken the glowing red and blue concept of the screen-worn props and used it to create a pair of cheap super clone IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month watches that will each be produced as limited editions of 25 examples.

When discussions first started about Swiss made replica IWC supplying watches for the film Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, Director James Wan (who was already a personal fan of IWC) wanted to have the film’s villains Black Manta and Dr. Stephen Shin (played by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Randall Park, respectively) to have watches that could compliment their high-tech underwater suits. To achieve this vision, Christian Knoop, AAA quality fake IWC Chief Design Officer, said, “We talked about fitting the humans in the film with IWC replica watches online, and then we showed him [James Wan] our secret concept world for the top copy IWC Aquatimer. He saw some very interesting light concepts and luminosity concepts we were exploring at the time, and this more or less formed the starting point of doing something together.”

Realistically speaking, Aquaman himself has no need for a watch while underwater, although a wrist-mounted timepiece perfectly plays into the futuristic equipment used by the film’s two villains as they venture deep into the underwater world. From there, the goal became to design timepieces that could become part of the silver-age comic book world that had been created for the film, as these fantasy characters would not be wearing standard off-the-shelf replica watches for men if they also had technology like helmets that shoot laser beams.

With that in mind, by the time everything was squared away and it was decided that the prop watches would be based upon the Aquatimer design DNA with an all-black finish and glowing red or blue dials to complement the accents on their respective character’s outfits, Swiss movement fake IWC then had only ten days to produce functional prop watches and get them to London for the start of filming.

Personally, I would have loved to see high quality fake IWC make the duo of commercially available models the exact same as the screen-worn watches, although a simple time-only Aquatimer almost seems like too much of a mass-market offering to restrict to a limited-edition Aquaman-themed release. Additionally, the goal of the new top super clone IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” watches wasn’t to make a screen-worn prop available to the public but rather to create a striking expression of an already bold and highly technical IWC model, which is inspired by the fictional high-tech timepieces worn by the film’s supervillains. People say that watch brands should create movie-themed timepieces that actually look like they are from the imaginary worlds that inspire them, and the duo of Swiss copy IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” models are arguably far more aesthetically outlandish offerings than the prop watches that actually appear in the film.
