Portofino Automatic Moon Phase

Ask about this watch

    In 1984, IWC created the Portofino collection. The family was named after the idyllic village on the Italian coast, which became an exclusive holiday destination for the international jet-set during the 1950s and 1960s. Since that day, Portofino watches have successfully combined the ease of the Mediterranean lifestyle with a touch of glamour and elegance. The Portofino Automatic Moon Phase is the first Portofino timepiece with a case diameter of 40 millimetres that also features a moon phase display. Until the year 2018, this popular complication was only offered in 45 millimetres or 37 millimetres.

    This timepiece is housed in a classic stainless steel case. The silver moon harmonises beautifully with the blue dial, as well as the rhodium-plated hands and appliqués. This casual yet elegant watch is fitted with a hand-coloured black alligator leather strap.

    With a clear focus on technology and development, the Swiss watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen has been producing timepieces of lasting value since 1868.

    In the new production facility, the Schaffhauser Uhrenmanufaktur manufactures factory parts and production facilities on an area of ​​13,500 square meters and enclosures under one roof - a milestone in the company's over 150 year history. For example, the entire added value from the raw material through the individual parts of the work to the finished manufacture movement is now arranged on a floor in a logical order.

    The Portuguese

    This very successful timepiece, produced since the mid-30s of the last century, fell out of the usual Art Deco style. While at that time mainly smaller and slimmer wristwatches were available on the market, two Portuguese businessmen turned to the watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen to commission a traditional, large wristwatch with the precision of a pocket watch, for which the Schaffhausen-based company is world-famous. The combination of the Savonette pocket watch calibre 74 with a case suitable for wristwatches set the stylistic and technical standard for all subsequent watches in the Portuguese series.

    The easy-to-read and clearly structured dial skilfully continues the design language of IWC's Portuguese customers known since the 1930s and complements it with another timeless piece of jewellery.
