There are moments you look forward to all week and, since 2011, winding the Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days has been one of them for many lovers of fine watchmaking. The flagship of the Portofino family with its newly developed IWC-manufactured 59210-calibre movement will run precisely and reliable for a full 192 hours before it automatically stops. The remaining power can be read off on the power reserve display on the dial between 8’ and 9’ o’clock. In combination with the small seconds display at 6’ o’clock and the date display at 3’, this gives the dial a pleasingly balanced appearance. This classic and elegant timepieces features an 18-carat red gold case punctuated by its silver-plated dial and sumptuous dark brown alligator leather strap.
