IWC Schaffhausen expands the iconic Portofino collection by introducing Hand-Wound Day & Date, a beautiful watch model that features a sophisticated new development.
In the Portofino Hand-Wound Day & Date(Ref. IW516201/ IW516203) IWC’s designers and watchmakers have combined the large date with a day display and created an aesthetically pleasing timepiece that is also enormously beneficial in practice. The Portofino Hand-Wound Day & Date with the newly developed IWC-manufactured 59220 calibre embodies the timeless elegance of the Portofino series.
Fully wound, the eight day movement keeps running precisely for 192 hours with no need for any intervention. At that point, the owner will need to replenish its power reserve by winding the crown, as indicated by the power reserve display on the dial. The modern watch movement design, featuring large bridges with Geneva stripes and circular-grained plates, is visible through the sapphire-glass back.
