This summer, it’s time for the classic 1:1 replica IWC Portugieser Chronograph 3716 to become even more versatile. As standard, this watch – which has been around for almost 30 years now – has always been on the safe side, worn on a classic, quite formal alligator leather strap. Sure, recent iterations have been made with steel bracelets, but those with a classic version had to deal either with something possibly too elegant, or look for externally-sourced solutions.
We’ve seen with the recent perfect fake IWC Portugieser Chronograph Blue Panda that a rubber strap could drastically change the look of this reference 3716, making it sporty and more in line with its initial nautical vocation. Now, the brand of Schaffhausen is introducing eight new coloured rubber straps for the AAA quality replica IWC Portugieser Chronograph reference 3716… And unfortunately, only for this current generation, as these straps are not compatible with the older versions reference 3714. A missed opportunity, in our opinion here at our online shop. But those with the current version will have plenty of options to choose from.
The collection ranges from classic colours – dark blue, black or brown – to more audacious options such as olive, green, violet, burgundy or white. The cheap super clone IWC reference 3716 itself is available in eleven different versions, be they in 18k red gold or stainless steel. There are thus a large number of combinations possible. Some, such as the white strap with green dial, or the gold model with olive strap, truly bring a fresh look to the classic IWC Portugieser Chronograph replica for sale. Some, such as the violet strap on the silver-plated dial, will remain more debatable.
This new collection of rubber straps is available in three sizes – XS, standard and XL – and can be ordered with or without a pin buckle. They are now available at best quality copy IWC boutiques, authorised retail partners or from the brand’s website for a (quite high, to be honest) price of CHF 320 with buckle, or CHF 220 without buckle.
