IWC Portofino Date Watch IW356501
the IWC Portofino was introduced in 1984 and the first model was known as Ref 5251. It was an elegant wristwatch that brought together bold elements (for its time) such as an oversized case albeit pared down by a relatively slim profile, with timeless design features which included long Breguet-style hands and elongated Roman numerals.
Fastforward, The collection took the spotlight in 2014 when IWC engaged fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh to work with all the friends of the brand to create a stunning photo spread showcasing the natural and timeless allure of Portofino, the location as well as the timepiece.
This is an elegant example and beautiful in its simplicity. The watch is finished with a white dial and date feature. The watch is complemented with a black alligator strap and IWC buckle.
The watch comes complete with original box and paperwork from 2012.
