Portofino is a collection of watches dedicated to a whimsical Italian fishing village of the same name. All watches from the Portofino collection evoke an old age renaissance sort of memory, of a time when simpler meant more. Those times have returned with the new Portofino models slightly larger than the older ones to move with the times. This piece having an 18-carat red gold case 40 mm in diameter, housing the 35110 calibre. The back cover is embellished with an intricate engraving that depicts a view of the harbor at Portofino. Its display comprising of a silver-plated dial, with gold-toned hands and index markers; the red 60 minute marker above the Roman 12 mark unique to the 3565 series and a dark brown alligator leather strap.

A beautiful offering from IWC, this is very plain and simple, but that is a main part of its charm. The setting of a gold case against a brown leather strap makes for a wonderful combination, much like good food paired with fine wine. Simplicity is after all a form of elegance, and this model personifies that to the T.

This beautiful formal watch from premium Swiss watch-maker IWC is a treat to the eyes of a layman and the delight of a watch aficionado.Housed in a gold-casing,the 40 mm silver-plated dial is embossed with golden hour markers and hands.There is a date window at 3 O'clock and the strap is made of gorgeous brown leather which increases its appeal even more.The only concern with this master-piece is its exorbitant price but that is something implied while dealing with a brand like IWC. The in-house automatic movement also adds to the pocket pinch.
