In CC 2019 (latest update 23.0.1), at 100% Zoom 1inch artwork would display at 1inch in physical (Print) size, on any display. If this doesn’t work right for screen design workflows, please use the checkbox Preferences > General > Display Print Size at 100% Zoom, to turn off the feature. Currently this feature works only on primary display, and there are plans of extending this to other attached displays.

This works great for me:
I zoom to 138.89 because "my screen dpi(100)" x 0.72 = ~138.9
Create a new View by going to "View" > "New View..."
Set a shortcut for the new view (custom view 1) and DONE!
Tip: I used "Ctrl + ." (numpad dot) because ctrl+1 is 100% size, ctrl+0 is artboard size, and now ctrl+. is real life size and I have all shortcuts close to each other so I can easily switch between them...
Hope it helped!
