If you like or just have some kowledge about luxurious watches, the name of IWC must has made some impression on you, as one of the most famous watch brands in the world. founded in the year 1868, IWC established their official motto in 1903 – “Probus Scafusia”, meaning “good, solid craftsmanship from Schaffhausen”. Just as what it says, IWC has been spared no efforts in producing better timepieces. IWC is steadily strengthening its position internationally and consolidated its worldwide acceptance very successfully. IWC, as ‘The Engineer of fine Watchmaking’, has pushed ahead with the continuing development of its movements and has added new mechanisms featuring elaborate ‘complications’. Distinctive and handcrafted, IWC watches are well received by the global people. Thousands of styles are available for your selection. Among so many models, I personaly appreciate very much the IWC Portuguese Perpetual and IWC Da Vinci.
The Portuguese Perpetual, measured 42.3mm, has a power reserve of seven days. They come wi
th three styles of 18kt rose gold, 18kt white gold and platinum. The Da Vinci watch is equipped with self-winding mechanical movement, available in a black dial in 18kt white gold, a white dial in 18kt rose gold and a white dial in stainless steel. All of these watches look unique and elegant. Although it hurts me, too, to mension this, there comes the fact that these timepieces are sold at sky-high prices, from $1,000 to $25,000. You may also find these original watches too expensive for you to reach, you can go for the high quality replica versions of IWC Portuguese Perpetual and IWC Da Vinci. The replica IWC watches almost have the equivalent quality and craftsmanship with the authentic ones but cost far far less than the originals, with prices ranging from $90 to $150, almost affordable to everyone.
Instead of getting into heavey debt with the original watches, we can by several IWC replicas to wear in different occasions and for different outfits, and this, I think, is the wisest way to spend your hard earned money. You can get classy with the wonderful replica IWC Portuguese Perpetual and Da Vinci watches at small costs.
