We tend to notice changes in incremental volumes when we watch movement development. This is because we anticipate big announcements for specific anniversary years. Our IWC Portofino Replica friends, especially Anthony de Haas (director of product development), love to throw us curveballs.
This is what happened at the beginning of the year.Replica Watches
We thought all would be well and that big guns would be out in 2019. It was the 25th anniversary of IWC Portofino Replica's first modern IWC Portofino Replica pieces being presented in 1994. And boom! They offered us a Triple Split that blew our minds.
Split-seconds chronograph has been a difficult task for even the most skilled watchmakers. It requires strong movements. IWC Portofino Replica held the record for the Double Split even before the Triple Split. This allows you to split the chronograph minutes and seconds. This new complication allows one to record lap differences using the hour counter.
De Haas knows, as do you, that you won't need the split hours unless your Triple Split is used to time the Tour de France. His philosophy in watchmaking was "why not" and not "why." The Triple Split is a fitting tribute to his ingenious innovations on a timeless complication.
The Little IWC Portofino Replica 1 was another highlight of the year, with two new versions in white and one in rose gold. All three versions are free from diamonds and mother-of pearl or any other feminine-skewed aesthetic. We don't know if it is a tacit acknowledgment of the necessity for androgyny when designing watches.Panerai Luminor GMT Replica
It now measures 36.8mm. This is a size that can be used by either gender. It comes in mauve, anthracite, and brown dials with matching straps. The L121.1 calibre powers it. It's likely to be as hard as the IWC Portofino Replica 1 - good luck!
