The opulent design and slightly smaller case of the Portofino Automatic 37 are a source of delight for devotees of timeless wristwatches. A black alligator leather strap from Santoni was selected for the stainless-steel model with 12 diamonds on the slate-coloured dial. The precious stones of exceptionally high quality give the watch a radiance of its own, while the design itself remains sleek and simple. The fine sun-pattern finish on the dial reflects light in a myriad of different ways, while the polished surfaces of the case give the watch an opulent style of its own. In addition to the hour, minute and seconds hands, the watch, which is water-resistant to 3 bar, also features a rapid-advance date display. All of these functions are powered by the 35111-calibre mechanical automatic movement.

His visionary dream was to combine advanced American manufacturing methods with the craftsmanship of Swiss watchmakers to make the best pocket watches of his time.

Over its 150 year history, IWC Schaffhausen has developed a reputation for creating functional complications, especially chronographs and calendars, which are ingenious, robust, and easy for customers to use.
