The majority of watch factories will cease accepting orders after today, and shipping services will remain unavailable until the conclusion of our New Year holiday. Both watch factories and shipping companies are expected to resume operations around February 6th, marking nearly a month-long holiday for them. Wishing you all a healthy and prosperous life in 2023 and a joyful Chinese New Year celebration.

Now, let me introduce a new addition to Z factory‘s lineup—a replica IWC Portuguese Chrono watch that was just released three days ago. This particular Portuguese Chrono model comes with a stainless steel bracelet, a departure from ZF’s previous releases, which featured leather straps. The newly introduced variants include one with a green dial and another with a white dial.

The Portuguese Chrono is a flagship model for ZF, alongside the Portuguese 7 Days, both of which have contributed to the factory’s global acclaim. While ZF’s Portuguese replicas initially enjoyed strong sales, it appears that the demand has diminished over time. Nevertheless, these elegant watches hold timeless appeal, especially for collectors who appreciate the sophistication they bring to a watch collection.

Crafted entirely from solid 316L stainless steel, the watch boasts a substantial case diameter of 41mm, providing a bold presence on the wrist. The case, with a thickness of around 14mm, maintains a profile acceptable to most wearers, even with the inclusion of an Asia 7750 chronograph movement. The polished round bezel complements the lugs’ polishing, and the case showcases delicate horizontal brushing on both sides, creating a noticeable contrast with the polished case lines above. The seamlessly integrated solid stainless steel bracelet further enhances the watch’s overall design.

The case back features a transparent crystal, providing a glimpse of the chronograph movement within. This movement not only offers a complete chronograph function but also closely replicates the appearance of the IWC 69355 Calibre. ZF’s Portuguese Chrono replicas have garnered positive feedback, with few or no reported movement issues and overall high-quality remarks.

However, it’s important to exercise caution when wearing this watch, particularly when opening and closing the clasp. It is advisable to use the push button on the clasp gently and avoid exerting excessive force when opening, as pulling the buckle forcefully may lead to breakage. Similar concerns have been noted with the clasp on ZF VC Overseas models.
