Portofino Hand-Wound Big Date
Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days
The striking big date display has now made its way into the Portofino watch family. IWC's digital display tradition goes all the way back to 1885, when the Pallweber pocket watches showed the hours and minutes with numerals. The classic dial with date, power reserve display and separate subdial is beautifully balanced. The fine-quality Santoni strap is made of alligator leather.
The first Portofino with a large, double-digit date display.
The large, double-digit display is easier to read and lends a classic touch to the dial design.
The IWC-manufactured 59230 calibre unites the eight-day, hand-wound movement with the large digital date display.
The watch is available in either a cool-looking 18-carat white gold case or in a warmer 18-carat red gold case.
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.
