IWC Portofino

Simple. Refined. Understated.  

Consider that a mantra when choosing a good dress watch. A dress watch should not leap from the wrist, declaring its presence to onlookers. Instead, it should be a subtle companion that accents the wearer and his outfit. A dress watch should also be simple and clean, the dial uncluttered by unnecessary sub-dials.

While in recent years the International Watch Company is often associated with their lovely Portuguese chronographs, sturdy Aquatimer divers, Big Pilot aviators, or the redoubtable tool watches that accompanied pilots from the late 40s to the 1970s, it has also been a longstanding manufacture of some of the most simplistically beautiful dress timepieces.  

With a simple, circular steel case, black dial, and gently curving this IWC Portofino checks all the boxes for a perfect daily-wearer that effortlessly pulls double-duty as an elegant wristwatch for dressier occasions.

This particular model dates to the early 2000s and is in beautiful condition inside and out. The 38mm case (only 8.5mm thick!) is perfectly accented by the clean non-luminous jet black dial and simple steel stick hands. Internally, a Calibre 30110 automatic movement provides power with a reserve of 42 hours. The solid steel case back is held in place by six screws, and the dial is protected by a sapphire crystal. Fully overhauled by our friends at Central Watch, this beauty also comes with an 18-month warranty dated 12/15 and is ready to wear right out of the box.

Paired with a Horween Shell Cordovan strap with matching polished steel hardware, this IWC makes a statement without screaming from the wrist, and pairs nicely with a variety of work or dress apparel. With the added benefit of a date function, this piece truly makes an extraordinary everyday piece. Whatever the use, there is no denying that this IWC's classic stylings and robust movement make it a lovely and desirable piece.
