In 1984, IWC created the Portofino collection. The family was named after the idyllic village on the Italian coast, which became an exclusive holiday destination for the international jet-set during the 1950s and 1960s. Since that day, Portofino watches have successfully combined the ease of the Mediterranean lifestyle with a touch of glamour and elegance. The Portofino Hand-Wound Moon Phase pays homage to the first Portofino from 1984, which also featured a moon phase display. Now, this coveted model is available in 18-carat 5N with a silver-plated dial as well as gold-plated hands and solid gold appliqués for the first time. The exclusive timepiece is powered by the IWC-manufactured hand-wound 59800 calibre, which offers a power reserve of 8 days when fully wound. This simple yet elegant watch is fitted with a hand-painted blue alligator leather strap by the Italian shoe manufacturer Santoni.
Calibre Family 59000
Watch connoisseurs look forward to the weekly ritual of manually winding IWC-manufactured 59000-calibre-family movements to ensure that they run precisely for 8 days.
