IWC Schaffhausen Portofino – Italian design meets Swiss mechanics
The history of IWC Schaffhausen Portofino began in the late 1970s. Inspired by the Lépine pocket watch, reference 5201, the brand created a timelessly classic model with moon-phase display, which was first presented in 1984 under the name Portofino. Since then, the growing line has been one of the most successful IWC Schaffhausen watch lines and is known for its understated and tasteful models.
Elegant and unique watches for men and women
Today, the IWC Schaffhausen Portofino line includes classic dress watches and three-hand models with moon phases and grand complications. While models such as the IWC Schaffhausen Portofino Automatic Moon Phase 37 are luxurious and set with diamonds, the IWC Schaffhausen Portofino Chronograph, for example, is a celebration of tasteful vintage design. However, the undeniable classic in this line is the IWC Schaffhausen Portofino Automatic, which, with its 40-millimeter diameter, has established itself as the most popular and best-known watch within this watch line since its launch in the 1990s. Whether you choose a model with grand complications or a simple three-hand watch, a rose gold case, or an alligator leather strap or a cool stainless steel model with a delicate milanese band – the unique personality of IWC Schaffhausen Portofino line shines through in every single model.
