SIHH 2011 News IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days
The Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days seamlessly takes up a tradition established by this watch family that goes back over 25 years. When the first Portofino watch took the world by storm in 1984, it was a scintillating combination of understated elegance and precision mechanics. The watch was, and still is, a perfect piece for watch connoisseurs.
This is particularly true of the Portofino family’s new flagship, which will also appeal to devotees of complex yet highly functional watchmaking. For ticking away inside the elegant, round case is the new IWC-manufactured 59210 calibre: designed and built using state-of-the-art methods, it never loses sight of Schaffhausen’s great watchmaking tradition. The new IWC Portofino collection and its flagship model combine the Italian lifestyle and elegant chic of the 1950s and 60s with modern engineering excellence and precision watch manufacturing.
