***pictorial review*** New 2017 IWC Portugieser 3714 from Trustytime / Andrew

6 posts in this topic

Hi folks,
 
In my opinion one of the finest IWC's around... the 3714 series!
 
Shipped by Andrew on Saturday, delivered on Monday.... one day in between!!! Holy SH*T! Great smoothless transaction as usual.
 
I never owned one untill now, I could not resist this new launched beauty. In the past the movement was a real dealbreaker for me and that was the main reason I never dare to purchase one. This time due to the movement adjustments I took my chance. I experience a very strong power reserve from about 3 days and it did not skipped a single beat sofar. I went for the the SS case and white dial. No need to discuss about the offered different variations if it's up to me. It is just a matter of taste regarding color, who am I to judge about which one is the most beautifull...For me absolutely the SS case /white dial / golden hands and numbers.
 
The rep strap which came with it, is just like all the other rep straps. They are "okisch" but a watch like this deserves better. For now I wear it on a light/brown strap which matches nicely with the golden hands/ numbers. The clasp and caeback are crisp regarding printing and both looks very good. The dial printing is also very crisp and it seems they did put some serious TLC in it regarding the finishing touch in general. The crystal is also very clear and there is a nice strong AR coating applied.
 
I had some IWC pilots in the past, I sold them all. This one I will keep for sure. It has a bit of all, classy, sporty, elegant, charming...on and on. It looks as good when wearing jeans as with wearing a suit. You can't go wrong with this look if you ask me.

If you do make sure that you buy a strap specifically for the clasp. They have a different length for the shorter part. If you buy a strap for the buckle the clasp will move to the side of your wrist which is uncomfortable and looks odd.

Hi, i thinki about this model, but heard many bad ooinions about ZF version. That They have very low quality control. Sometimes watch came with dust on dial, someone lost chronograph button after few days, etc. Is it true? Maybe some one can comopare it to YLF version?
