Since 1984, the watches in IWC’s Portofino family have brought the ease of the Mediterranean lifestyle to the wrist, combined with a touch of luxury and timeless elegance. Since the launch of the first collection, simple three-hand watches have been a cornerstone of the line. The Portofino Automatic, as it is known today, was introduced in 2003. Thanks to a perfect symbiosis of simplicity and elegance, it has become one of the most popular timepieces from Schaffhausen. Now, for the first time, this model is available with a case made of 18-carat 5N gold and a deep blue dial. The dial colour contrasts beautifully with the appliqués made of solid gold and the gold-plated hands. This watch is fitted with a hand-painted black alligator leather strap.
