MF Wrote:I'm surprised no one here has made any guesses on the 2011 Portofino line. That obviously will represent the preponderance of new models, and is consistent with IWC's philosophy of revising one product line every year. And, while the Portofino line is not as popular with some collectors as other lines, it is a major seller. And the Portofino Vintage Collection Moonphase is a strong model, at least for a manual wind movement.I really don't know yet about the specifics of the new models. But --and some of you will react in disbelief-- I actually have dreams about IWC watches. Weird, I know, but I live IWC and I guess sleep IWC.A few days ago I dreamt that all the new Portofinos were 46mm. They were all variations of the VC Moonphase --a time only model, a complicated model, an 8-day automatic, etc. And then I woke up, and thought I was dead-wrong. The line is a big seller because several of the models are "basic", and that size won't work for all.No hints, really. I haven't heard yet.

I think it would provide a suitable "update" to the regular Portofino collection, and would be an alternative to the grey dialed SS Vintage Collection model.
