Default Rocos (Portuguese Knock-Off)

I have been on the fence about buying the IWC Portuguese Chronograph for a long time now. To figure out if I really think I should buy it, I got this knock-off. Any thoughts? Anyone have a real Portuguese? Any particular differences I really should think about (besides quartz here)?

This is a very nice looking piece!
IMHO, this may be the way to go for this style. A big plus is not having to bring an armored truck along with your jaunt to the IWC AD !
Wear in good health!

Think this watch alone here looks pretty spectacular, and can't get
enough of the blued hands, and everything TT.

If the Rocos looks this good, and looks spectacular on the wrist,
can you imagine the IWC?! ..Unfortunately can't give you any
insight into the Portuguese Chrono, but can say this homage above
looks great ! Hope you are really enjoying it, and maybe end up
adding the IWC to join it. Big congrats there to you !!!
