IWC - Portofino Hand-Wound Day & Date

| No comment
Following the Hand-Wound Monopusher ChronographIWC is adding a new model to its Portofino collection: the Portofino Hand-Wound Day & Date, a timepiece where the large date is combined with a day-of-the-week display.

The large case measures 45 mm x 13 mm and it is available in stainless steel (ref. IW516201) with a silver-plated dial, rhodium plated hands and indices or in a red gold version (ref. IW516203) featuring a slate-coloured dial, gold-plated hands and 18-carat red gold indices.

At 12 o'clock, two large digits show the date, whose mechanism is based on two synchronised discs: one bearing the numerals 0 to 3 which takes care of the tens and the other, bearing the figures 0 to 9, to handle the single digits.

The additional display at 3 o'clock showing the actual day of the week is directly connected to the date advance mechanism.

At 9 o'clock the power reserve indicator shows the remaining energy of the IWC-manufactured movement, the hand wound calibre 59220. When fully wound, the 4 Hz (28,800 vph) movement keeps running precisely for 192 hours or eight day with no need for any intervention.

Featuring large bridges with Geneva stripes and circular-grained plates, the movement is visible
through the sapphire-glass back.

Matched to a black or a brown leather strap from Santoni with the characteristic orange leather lining, the Portofino Hand-Wound Day & Date will have a price of around Euro 13,400 / US$ 13,200 in stainless steel and Euro 23,800 / US$ 23,400 in red gold.
