Product Details

The IWC Portofino collection delivers their most elegant series. Retaining a dressier aesthetic but moving towards a size more synonymous with IWC, the Portofino Handwound arrives at a generous 45mm case size but retains a slim profile with the hand wound calibre visible through a sapphire caseback. The movement offers a seven day power reserve once fully wound giving the wearer ample opportunity to swop between their other IWC watches and this without resetting!

Named after Italy’s famous port town, renown for being a luxurious getaway with vibrant beauty and exceptional views, its horological counterpart enjoys the same understated elegance. The IWC Portofino Handwound is built to be the perfect companion to the modern gentleman.

In the Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days, the IWC-manufactured 59210-calibre movement will run precisely and reliably for a full 192 hours, or 8 days, before it automatically stops. Strictly speaking, it is 9 days, but the extra day in reserve ensures that the movement maintains as constant a driving torque as possible and continues to run precisely. The owner will always be on the safe side if he winds his watch once a week.

The power remaining can be read off on the power reserve display on the dial. Together with the small seconds display and date display, this gives the dial a pleasing equilibrium. The indexless balance has a frequency of 28,800 beats per hour and, together with the Breguet spring bent into shape in accordance with age-old watchmaking tradition, helps to make the watch exceptionally accurate. The watch is available with a stainless-steel case, black dial and rhodium-plated indices. It has a transparent sapphire-glass back and a dark brown alligator leather strap from the House of Santoni.
