The Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days Story
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. In this version, IWC combines for the first time a deep-blue dial with a delicate Milanaise bracelet made of stainless steel. This combination lends the timepiece a distinctive look, and also provides a unique wearing sensation.
