The History of IWC Portofino Watches

Introduced in 1984 as a wristwatch in ‘pocket watch style’, IWC Portofino watches have been refined to perfection over the last three decades to become one of the brand’s most beloved collections, with an intrinsic sense of laid-back style that attracts both ladies and gentlemen alike. The clarity of the design and the uncluttered aesthetic of the dial within the range of IWC Portofino watches is a firm favourite with many, and this sense of minimalism is now the hallmark of the collection. With Roman numerals and simple hour markers, along with a case design that can trace an unbroken lineage all the way back to the Lépine pocket watch of 1984, this is a family of watches that remains timeless, and probably always will.

 

When Classical Meets Contemporary

However, 'timeless' doesn’t mean that IWC Portofino watches lack the innovations of modern horology, as there are plenty of innovations on display. Some of the features exhibited by select models include moon phase displays, a power reserve of 8 days and GMT functions for those owners who regularly cross into different time zones. Aesthetically, they have often embraced the modern affiliation with diamond-set bezels too, yet have never left their roots behind. The reverse of selected Portofino cases celebrates their Mediterranean heritage, with an engraving of a Ligurian fishing village depicted in magical detail: the very name 'Portofino' was named after an Italian fishing village, after all.

Another characteristic of IWC Portofino watches has always been their large case size, and indeed they were considered unusually large at the time when they were first released. However, some years ago IWC Schaffhausen elected to create variant Portofino watches that were a little smaller, which is just one of the reasons why these timepieces will suit both male and female watches so well. These smaller dials possess all of the same signature flourishes of the larger, even in the case of the 37mm moon phase watch, which still includes the whimsical inclusion of a cloud scene emblem.
