First launched in 1984, the IWC Portofino is a sophisticated and elegant dress watch. The latest addition to IWC’s Portofino collection includes a handful of different models in 34mm and 37mm cases, further expanding the brand’s collection of sophisticated dress watches. The new IWC Portofino Replica Watch is available in stainless steel or 18k 5N rose gold with a thickness of 8.7mm or 8.9mm for the 34mm model and 9.4mm for the 37mm model – 11.3mm for the standard three-hand model , 11.3 mm for models equipped with the moon phase complication.
Despite the differences, all the different models share the same classic round case shape with a cabochon sapphire crystal above the dial and a push/pull winding crown at 3 o’clock for easy access to the movement and to help provide 50 meters of water resistance. While the AAA IWC Replica Watches comes standard with a simple, smooth fixed bezel, select models in the new 34mm and 37mm collections also offer a diamond-set bezel, further adding to its refined case design and offering an absolute Luxurious overall look.
While diamonds on the bezel are optional, they are mandatory for all dials on the new Best 34mm and 37mm IWC Portofino Replica Watches. While the standard three-hand models feature the collection’s signature extended Roman numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock, all 12 indexes include a small diamond set on the outer periphery of the minute track. Dial color options for the 34mm model include green, silver, and blue; however, the green dial is only available on the time-only version.
Similar to the 34mm models, the dials of all 37mm watches are set with 12 diamonds on the minute track and also have a date window at 3 o’clock. For most of the new Luxury IWC Portofino Replica models, the finish of the hands and indexes corresponds to the material of the case, which means that the 18k gold models feature matching gold-plated components, while the stainless steel versions feature rhodium-plated hands and markers. One of the 34mm chronograph models paired gold-plated dial furniture with a stainless steel case for a slightly warmer, more retro look.
Powering the two time-only versions of the Swiss IWC Portofino Replica is the brand’s Calibre 35100 movement, while the Day & Night model uses the Calibre 35180. Both self-winding movements are based on the Sellita SW300-1 and therefore run at 28,800vph and Cal. The 35100 provides the user with a power reserve of about 42 hours, while the Cal. 35180 has a power reserve of 50 hours with a slight increase in autonomy.
In terms of strap and bracelet options, most new IWC Portofino Quality Replica Watches(including all 18k gold models) feature a two-piece strap made of fully traceable Swiss calfskin with a butterfly folding clasp . That said, some stainless steel models in both case sizes also feature matching 5-link bracelets with contrasting brushed and polished surfaces. Leather strap color options include black, blue, beige, taupe and green, each designed to complement the watch dial it is paired with.
