  1. Hello ! I recently purchased a IWC Portuguese rep. The watch itself looks great, allthough the rotor makes super much noise (I added a video in which you can hear it if you put your volume up). I was wondering; should this sound be considered normal for these kind of watches? Currently I am not wearing it to work because if I would walk through the office everyone around me could hear the noise (it's a harsh metallic noise upon the slightest movement of the watch), and if I had been informed about the noise I probably wouldn't have bought the watch. Was also wond
  2. I've got a pretty solid 5009-09 Le Petit Prince rose gold rep - it's on a high-quality LVMH strap with orange lining by Peter. It's factory otherwise, anyone done any nice mod's to these?
  3. Micro Review by DrGran Ordered: IWC0339 - IWC Pilot Chronograph Ref.3777 SS/SS Black V6F A7750 from Trusty Description: V6 Top Edition in SS Bracelet! This is V2 Edition Special Upgrade! At first it seemed it was not from V6 factory as decribed, but rather from the ZF factory....... ...but Trusty assured me it is indeed a V6 and that they just put ZF QC stickers on it as they have these lying around. Rep of a rep situation!!! Very odd, but its the replica jungle and who knows!? Now the 3777 10 watch:
  4. Hi Guys, I'm looking for IWC 18mm deployant or buckle. Any recommendation on good quality ones is highly appreciated. Thank You
  5. Hi guys, Would you be able to tell me if the 5001 dial attached is genuine. The wording looks correct to me. Numbers looked aligned too. What do you guys think? Cheers, AP
  6. IWC "Cousteau Divers" 2008 This is the 2008 special edition IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Cousteau Divers “A tribute to Calypso” which incorporates a stilysed picture of the research vessel on the backcase. The Calypso, the legendary research vessel of Jacques-Yves Cousteau, was a converted minesweeper, as afficionado’s are aware from countless films. Like the standard model this "Cousteau Diver" has the useful, supplementary function of a rotating inner bezel that is indispensable for diving, but which can only be rotated in a single direction for safety reasons. The chronograph reset butt
  7. Actually we can skip BP as clearly being not very good, but the SWF version seems to be the best, have a look at the pictures, they got the concentric circles right as well as the two-tone lume (hands vs. markers) and the sunburst, even the engravings on the backside are very good (not that I would care very much for that). Of course the rotor of the ZF is better decorated, but IMO that does not matter the slightest bit on a closed caseback anyway. So actually my vote goes for the SWF, but I would like to make use of the wisdom of the forum, what do you guys think? SWF: http://puretime.watch
  8. This example arrived today from another member sale (pumpkineater123). I spent an hour polishing the case, greasing/waterproofing the seals, cleaning the inner case, cleaning the hands and centering the date wheel in the window. It is a nice dress piece for those blue days and is going to work great with jeans and a sweater. With a suit...perfection. The dial outside of the case is quite incredible....better radiant blue color and sunburst than the current Patek Nautilus, in fact. Super rep level that will never be questioned in the wild given the 2011 vintage and limited 1000 unit run.
  9. History of the REP IWC Portuguese 7 Days 5001: In 2008 the REP Maker came out with the first generation of IWC Portuguese 7 Days (Ref : 5001). This version was not even close to the GEN 5001 as the Sub-dial spacing was too close, sunken date, the No: 4, Movements plate, prints, etc etc etc. After 7 years of waiting, in AUG 2015 ZF and YL join forces to research and developed a new movement which elevate the REP IWC 5001 to another level. They bought GEN and spent many months doing research to make the best IWC 5001 and finally they've succeeded. This blows a lots of people mind on how possib

  12. I just received my IWC Portofino Chrono. Pictures are here. I am concerned about a couple things, and wondering if I am over reacting. 1. this is supposed to be AR coated... I may not understand the meaning but the crystal doesn't seem super clear. 2. this watch feels really hollow and the movement seems to shake and spin a great deal...Is this normal? Feels kinda hollow but, maybe thats because I'm used to wearing a submariner? When I tap on it, I can hear the watch shake inside. . . Is this all normal? What do you all think?
  13. Hello guys, Been a while since I've come on here! Was wondering if anyone could tell me if this IWC clasp (I have attached images) is genuine. Some have an oval logo in between Swiss made and acier inox writing and some don't, is this just based on the year it was made? Anyway if this looks legit to you or rep, let me know your thoughts. cheers, AP
  14. Hello to all members Thank you for this forum My name is Laurent, I am 33 and live in Paris. I work in the business consulting area but I am a mechanical engineer and I am very attracted by mechanical watches as a hobby/collection. I own several watches (Speedmaster, BR03-92, Classima Ltd Edition, etc.) So far I also try to make my own mods and projects usings parts and movements from here and there, mostly sourcing on the bay. I have purchased case, dial, bezel and glass of a Portuguese on the bay. I need the 79350 and buy some hands to complete. Allthought I have read many posts on this foru
  15. Hello mates, I have just bought an IWC Ingy Ti and just thinking on fixing the DW misalignment. Read a lot of "Lello" DWs, but do you know where could I find one os something similar? Thanks! Greetings form SpainReplyReport

  18. So, at last, here is my small contribution to IWC afficionados. Enjoy listening, enjoy the summer, enjoy IWC. http://goo.gl/UVEmL1
  19. While in the search for Mark XVII Edition “Le Petit Prince” (Ref. IW326506) rep, I came across that V6F released this 3777-06 petit prince version. It's a 43mm and I wonder whether it can fit well on my small wrist, hence decided to give it a bet. Collected this watch from mail room this afternoon and can't wait to unpack it. Since not many review on this watch, here is my simple opinion on it:- note : please forgive my bad English ...it's so amazing that most people over here able to express and write so well...envy..envy ! The good : Accurate Rep IMHO. Typical rep quality strap bu
  20. Okay Gents, I'm looking for real world experience from people that have purchased this watch. Either the 3789 or 3799. Which model did you buy? How long have you had it? Who'd you buy it from? Is it still ticking, keeping time, looking good? I'm especially interested in hearing back from anyone that paid up for the swiss movement watch. Thanks in advance for sharing, I don't have enough info to judge the durability of the rep. I have a 3714 with the asian 29J 7750 that has given me trouble and is need of repair so I'm hoping to avoid that type of issue again.
  21. Hello all, has anyone ever bought this watch? What are your experiences with it? How is the AR with this version? How close is it to genuine? I have noticed that the "DAYS" is larger than in the original... or is that an illusion? Thanks in advance for all the contributions! http://tswatchltd.com/15580-iwc15580-big-pilot-5019-black-ceramic-ny-25j.html
  22. Was bored so I took some shots in the snow from a couple of watches out of my collection. I hope you enjoy them Oh and a wristshot
  23. I have an IWC Laureus with a problem, as you can see: Local watch shop quoted me a little too much to fix this, so I am wondering how hard it would be. The movement is a Miyoto 0S10, and I did search online and here in these forums for stem removal instructions. I can see there is a small hole on the back of the movement with a "<--PUSH" instruction, and I can see something move in there when I push the stem in, but I could not get the stem out. Any tips/advice/wisdom you care to share would be appreciated.
  24. My beloved IWC GST 3707 in titanium with a replaced ETA 7750 I have been a follower everywhere. Unfortunately also dropped several times. The last time the dial broke, with several pieces coming off it. This watch has been commented by so many of you since it is now out of production and almost no replicas for sale. I have been in contact with both dealers and watchsmiths regarding a new dial but can't find it. Can anyone please direct me where to search further? -How/where do I source an original dial? Obviously gen IWC dealers won't help me. -A replica?
