THE FIRST PORTOFINO WITH A DOUBLE-DIGIT BIG DATE

Eagerly awaited by Portofino lovers, the eye-catching large date window joins the watch family this year. This type of digital display, an IWC tradition reaching back all the way to 1885, makes it considerably easier to read and, located just under the Roman twelve, perfectly complements the classic design of the dial. The in-house 59000-calibre family has been extended to include the 59230 calibre with its 8-day movement and large, double-digit date display. The Portofino Hand-Wound Big Date is available in a cool-looking 18-carat white gold case with a slate-coloured dial and a black Santoni alligator leather strap. Alternatively, there is the warmer 18-carat red gold case teamed with a silver-plated dial and dark brown alligator leather strap.
