IWC - Portofino ­Hand-Wound ­Monopusher

| 1 Comment
IWC enriches its Portofino collection with a second in-house chronograph that will be fully showcased during the Watches&Wonders 2015 event (Hong Kong, 30 September - 3 October 2015).

The Portofino Hand-Wound Monopusher differs from the classic Portofino chronograph with two push-buttons at 2 and 4 o’clock because, for the first time in an IWC production model, it features a single push-button on the crown. Pressing this button in sequence starts, stops and resets the chronograph.

The watch maintains the discreet design and classic lines typical of the Portofino family. The extra large 45 case houses a hand-wound 4 Hz (28,800 vph) movement decorated with Geneva stripes visible through the sapphire-glass caseback.

The 59360  manufacture calibre is an offshoot of the 59000-movement family with the additional feature of a chronograph mechanism. When fully wound, it offers a 192-hour or 8 days power reserve. The amount of energy remaining is displayed on the dial between 8 and 9 o’clock.

The subdial at 12 o’clock displays the number of minutes recorded by the chronograph while the seconds can be read off on the central hand. The running seconds subdial is symmetrically positioned at 6 o'clock to create a visual balance to the 60-minute chronograph counter. The date aperture at 3 o'clock completes the dial

The­ IWC Portofino ­Hand-Wound ­Monopusher ­is ­available either in a red gold version with a silver-plated dial and brown Santoni  alligator leather strap (ref. IW515104) or in white gold with a slate-coloured dial and grey Santoni alligator leather strap (ref. IW515103). Retail prices are Euro 25,800 / US$ 25,400 and Euro 27,400 / US$ 27,100 respectively.
