Today we’re taking a close up look at the Portofino Hand-Wound Big Date by IWC Schaffhausen. Available in white gold and red gold, the Portofino Hand-Wound Big Date is the newest addition to the Swiss manufacture’s Portofino collection.
The white gold model of the Portofino Hand-Wound Big Date features a slate-colored dial with rhodium-plated hands and indices, while the red gold version features a silver-plated dial with gold-plated hands and indices.
True to its name, the Portofino Hand-Wound Big Date features a big date display at 12 o’clock in large, highly legible figures. It also features a power reserve display. When fully wound, the new Portofino boasts a power reserve of 192 hours (8 days).
On the white gold version the Portofino Hand-Wound Big Date is completed by a black leather strap, while on the red gold version it is completed by a dark brown leather strap. Both versions feature the orange leather lining on the inner surface of the strap that is the trademark of its renowned manufacturer, the Italian company Santoni.
The white gold (Ref. IW516101) and red gold (Ref. IW516102) models of the Portofino Hand-Wound Big Date are available exclusively from IWC boutiques. Photos courtesy IWC Schaffhausen.
