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.

For any group, there will always be one object or person that stands out, that defines the group in a way unlike the others. The 3565 Portofino collection breathes old age charm, this particular piece does the same but it carries a little extra flair. It looks and moves like all the other 3565 pieces, it even has the same red-gold case and dark brown alligator leather strap as the 356504. What makes it so special is its ardoise coloured dial. It forms a perfect foil to the red-gold case, gold-toned indices and the dark brown strap, bridging the two extremes in a way, only a slate grey background could. The red 60 minute mark and the date display standing out ever so slightly.
