History
The IWC Portofino family of watches combines Swiss precision with comfort, simplicity and elegance which typified by the Mediterranean city of its name. The motto of Portofino Automatic is “Three Hands and a Discrete Day Display”. The original 40 mm diameter version of this stainless steel model makes the watch even slimmer and lighter to wear thanks to the evenly rounded sides of the display and the high-quality Milanese bracelet.

Design
The Portofino Automatic Men’s Watch has an elegant steel design which adorns the case, strap, buckle and hands. The steel in the bracelet strap weighs soft on the skin thanks to the woven mesh Milanese design which binds the wrist with a deployment clasp with 7 inch adjustability. The case height and diameter is 9.5mm and 40mm respectively. The sapphire crystal on the black dial provides scratch resistant, anti-reflective and convex coating on both sides.

Features
The IWC Portofino Automatic Mens Watch has indexes for the hour markers, except 6 o'clock and 12 o'clock and Arabic numerals for the minute markers, which line the outer rim of the dial. The entire design makes time reading simple with its intricately crafted leaf shaped hour and minute hands. The date window is displayed at the 3 o’clock position and the watch movement is IWC caliber 35110. It contains 25 jewels and beats at 28,800 vph with a power reserve of 42 hours. The automatic self-winding, mechanical has a water resistance of 30 meters. 

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.


Events
The Portofino Midsize watch collection was launched as recently as 2014 with lavish fan-fair and gala dinners. Celebrations were held in Dubai at the Ladies only fashion Dinner, showcasing the “Timeless Portofino” and hosted by CEO of IWC Schaffhausen, Georges Kerne and Brand director, Karoline Huber. In Hong Kong a splendid dinner party starring the Portofino Midsize watch collection was hosted by IWC Schaffhausen and attended by many Portofino devotees and friends.


Associations
The Portofino family is beloved among the talented and famous. Australian actress Cate Blanchett is a Friend of the Brand who represented the 2014 IWC Portofino Midsize edition in Dubai along with Czech model, Karolina Kurkova. Brazilian model and actress, Adriana Lima also attended  the novel Ladies only Fashion dinner in Dubai as a brand ambassador and friend.

Just like the picturesque fishing village in Italy of the same name, this piece like other Portofinos of the same collection, is an epitome of quality, good taste and exquisiteness. With three hands and a black dial, it needs no more. Unlike the older Portofinos, this one comes in a larger more in vogue 40 mm diameter. The shapely rounded sides make it look even slimmer, with the stainless steel case housing the 35110 calibre. The date display adds a nouveau touch to the whole display, with the red 60 minute mark above the Roman 12 hour index marker adding uniqueness to the 3565 series.
Class hasn't been more defined.
