History
Deriving its name from the former fishing village of Portofino, which is situated on the Gulf of Tigullio, close to Genoa, Italy – this classically designed Portofino collection is embedded with a subtle reflection of the laid-back lifestyle of this fishing village. The Portofino collection has become one of the most successful collections of the IWC watch family, going forward with its traditional appeal and contemporary elements.

Design
The IWC Portofino Chronograph IW391009 timepiece for men, is elegantly crafted with modern day designs and flaunts a sporty masculine look. This timeless exotic piece is housed in a polished stainless steel bezel and case. For consistency in design, the case flaunts a silver-textured dial which is delicately etched out with appliquéd brushed steel indexes, and Roman numeral hour markers. This diligently crafted dial also comprises fractions of seconds, seconds and minutes track indexes that are painted with the colour black, along with 5-minute increments printed in Arabic numerals. To enhance the look of the dial, the steel polished, and elegant leaf-shaped minutes, as well as hour hands, are beautifully nestled at the centre of the dial. The fine concentric guilloche textures of the sub-dials are to some degree recessed. The outer edge of the chronographic sub-dial is composed of a very thin polished steel rim. This timepiece is truly a classic, and has a timeless appeal.

Features
The IWC Portofino Chronograph IW391009 timepiece for men is an outcome of the years of toil shown by the expert engineers. The watch is embedded with such exemplary features as a day and date display window placed at the 3 o’clock position of the dial, including 30 minutes, and 12 hour sub-dial counter displayed at the 12 o’clock, and 6 o’clock position, respectively along with large central seconds counter. This automatic chronograph watch is embedded with 25 jewels and is driven by calibre 79320 that beats at 28,800 vph. Carrying a power reserve of approximately 44 hours, this timepiece makes for a perfect choice for you. The timepiece is also made water-resistant to a depth of 30 metres, and can easily withstand unwanted water splashes.

 

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.

Brazilian model and actress, Adriana Lima also attended  the novel Ladies only Fashion dinner in Dubai as a brand ambassador and friend.
