Model No.: IW510106
The IWC Schaffhausen Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days IW510106 has a Manual Winding movement, 3 Bar (30 meters) water resistance, Blue dial, Stainless Steel case and Leather strap with 8 Days of power reserve.
In the Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days, the IWC-manufactured 59210-calibre movement will run precisely and reliably for a full 192 hours, or 8 days, before it automatically stops. Strictly speaking, it is 9 days, but the extra day in reserve ensures that the movement maintains as constant a driving torque as possible and continues to run precisely. The owner will always be on the safe side if he winds his watch once a week. The power remaining can be read off on the power reserve display on the dial. Together with the small seconds display and date display, this gives the dial a pleasing equilibrium. The indexless balance has a frequency of 28,800 beats per hour and, together with the Breguet spring bent into shape in accordance with age-old watchmaking tradition, helps to make the watch exceptionally accurate. The watch is available with a stainless-steel case, blue dial and rhodium-plated indices. It has a transparent sapphire-glass back and a black alligator leather strap from the House of Santoni.
The Portofino collection is inspired by a former Italian fishing village called Portofino. The history of Portofino watches began in the late 1970's when IWC noted a steady demand for simple, classic models that still inspire the classically elegant designs of this family. The Portofino collection has become one of IWC's most successful watch families: an expression of understatement and good taste.
IWC has been at the forefront of watch innovation for over 150 years. Our chronometers continue to redefine the standards of Swiss luxury watches. Each model presents mechanical finesse in which intricate design balances expectations of grandeur.
