Die Geschichte der Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days
The unique charm of the Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days lies in the fact that its owner can choose a fixed weekday for winding it. Due to the IWC-manufactured 59210 caliber movement, winding it once will supply the timepiece with all the energy it needs to run for a whole week. In addition to the elaborate mechanics, it is also the timelessly elegant dial design that adds to the popularity of this classic piece. The applied indices and the Roman “12”, the small second, the power reserve indicator, and the date display, create a balanced and harmonious appearance. An IWC first, the strap made from grey suede blends perfectly with the slate-coloured dial and the stainless steel case. Thanks to the soft surface, the calfskin suede is not only visually attractive, but also comfortable to wear.
