IWC Portofino Chronograph Men's Watch
The IWC Portofino collection can be traced back to the 1970's when the Lepine pocket watch was the inspiration for the Portofino collection. First presented in 1984 the "pocket-watch-style" wrist watch with the name "Portofino". Over the last three decades, the IWC Portofino family has become one of the most successful collections; and it is easy to see why. This IWC Portofino Mens Watch has a sporty touch with its 42mm stainless steel case and blue dial with gold plated slender hand, applied indices and Roman numerals. Fitted on a black leather strap, this timepiece is powered by automatic movement and water resistant up to 30 metres.
