Michael Friedberg Wrote:It doesn't matter whether the Portofino deployant buckle is available. IWC for years has made an 18mm wide deployant buckle (since the Mark XVI if I recall). Any IWC 18mm deployant buckle will work. However, a word of caution --you may need a new strap as well as the buckle. The reason for that is that deployants generally use a differently-sized strap, which is shorter on one side. You can try the watch with the current strap first, to see if it works for you.
