History
The Portofino collection was launched in 1984, paying homage to the former fishing village of Tiguillo, near Genoa, Italy, currently a holiday getaway for well known actors, artists, and people in the fashion industry. The iconic Portofino collection renders a humble reflection of the daily lifestyle of this Mediterranean coastal town.   
 
Design
The IWC Portofino IW356505 for men, exhibits a modern take on luxury, while staying deeply rooted to the essence of the ancient fishing village of Portofino, the inspiration of the Portofino collection. This timepiece dons a steel case completely brushed in silver. A silver texture dial complements the silver bezel, and enhances the beauty of this timepiece. 10 silver indexes and 2 appliquéd Roman numerals adorn the face of the dial as the hour markers of the watch. The minutes’ track is printed on the outer rim of the dial, with the 60th mark painted in red. Silver toned elegant leaf hour and minutes hands add to the sophistication of the dial. A silver crown inscribed with the company’s logo on the bezel calibrates the dial, with the respective hand movements with date adjustments.
The bezel is firmly held by a Milanese design woven steel mesh bracelet, for an extremely comfortable fit. Wearers can easily fasten the bracelet using the tang buckle, which has been added for a durable grip and bracelet security.

Features
Offering a power reserve of approximately 42 hours, the IWC Portofino IW356505 is driven by IWC Calibre 35110 defined by automatic movement. This timepiece additionally comes with a white date display window located at the 3 o’ clock position of the dial. The scratch resistant sapphire case window protects the inner elements present on the dial from scratches and direct contact. Your watch will not get damaged due to accidental splashes of water as it is water resistant to a depth of 30 metres. Featuring 25 jewels, and a sealed case back, the ICW Portofino collection has become the brand’s best seller with its innovative yet simple designs.

 

History
Portofino was a former fishing village on the Gulf of Tigullio in Genoa, Italy and serves as a classic Mediterranean vacation spot for actors and actresses across the world. The quaint little place provided the inspiration for the Portofino family of IWC Schaffhausen in the late 1970s. The watch collection was crafted to provide a classic simplicity which appeared beautifully in the pioneer watch, the IWC Lepine open-faced pocket watch whose dial was turned through 90 degrees and was equipped with a moon phase display.


Features
Highly acclaimed for its stylistic design and myriad features, the IWC Portofino collection has something to whet every watch lovers appetite. The features range from Portofino Chronograph watches with two or three visually elegant complications, to the classic moonphase complication present in vintage collections only. The materials clothing the case include rose gold, white gold and stainless steel with hand-stitched alligator leather straps in assorted colours of black, chocolate, camel and midnight blue. A select few from the Portofino Automatic edition feature an elegant Milanese mesh stainless steel bracelet, keeping in sync with the leisurely charm of the collection.

If there was ever a watch you could imagine a stylish gondolier wearing while rowing his gondola through the Venetian streets, it would be this one. This watch from the Portofino collection is akin to actually being at Portofino, a small Italian fishing village from which its name is derived. At a slightly large 40 mm, the stainless steel case houses the 35110 calibre, its steely sheen bolstering its rather shapely figure. The stainless steel Milanese mesh bracelet, silver-plated dial and silver-toned hands only add to its clear class. Like other pieces in the 3565 series, this watch also sports a red 60 minute mark above the Roman 12 hour mark.
