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.

Good looking watch!

The fishing village of Portofino deceptively looks like nothing has ever changed, that it still resides in an era long gone, till you notice hints of technology here and there which jolt you back into today’s world. The 3910 Portofino collection shares the same vibe with its distinct design screaming of inspiration from Italian sports cars from the 1960’s, light on technology but heavy on the curves. Fortunately this piece is as modern as it is classic with a chronograph function. Unique to the 3910 collection is the red 30 and 12 index mark on the minute and hour stopwatch display. The stainless steel case houses the 75320 calibre and its face includes a white dial with silver toned index markers. The dark brown alligator leather strap adds to its allure.
