IWC Portofino Complete Calendar Watch Blends Classic Design and Modern Technology

The IWC Portofino Complete Calendar watch perfectly combines classic design and modern technology, showcasing the brand’s commitment to quality and craftsmanship. With its sophisticated design and intricate details, the IWC Portofino Complete Calendar watch is a must-have for any watch enthusiast.

The IWC Portofino Complete Calendar watch has a clean and uncluttered dial, with only the necessary information displayed. The watch is presented in 18k 5N gold and stainless steel. It has two sub-dials with the lower one displaying the date and month, while the phase of the moon and day of the week can be read just below 12 o’clock. However, some individuals may be bothered by the cutoff in the “XII” hour marker. The complete calendar includes dates, days, months, and phases of the moon. 

As the premier dress watch option of IWC, the Portofino boasts an understated and elegant design. IWC has a history of carefully calculated designs in its portfolio, including the beloved Portuguese Chronograph of the 2000s (now known as the Portugieser) and the Portofino collection itself. Given this track record, it is reasonable to expect that IWC has succeeded in creating a refined timepiece with the Portofino Complete Calendar watch.

The combination of leaf-shaped hands and straight hour markers creates a surprisingly striking aesthetic, especially when paired with the wide dial and slim bezel. The Automatic and IWC Schaffhausen texts are perfectly balanced on the 9 and 3 o’clock axis, while a touch of blue in the central seconds hand and phase of the moon disk adds a pop of color and versatility to the watch. The 18k 5N gold and stainless steel variants of the IWC Portofino Complete Calendar watch both measure 41mm in diameter and 11.8mm in thickness, with a slightly thicker profile due to the modular construction of the movement.

The IWC Portofino Complete Calendar watch is powered by the IWC-manufactured 32150 caliber, operating at 4Hz frequency and providing an extended 72-hour power reserve. Its water resistance is rated at 50m. 

The IWC Portofino Complete Calendar watch is a must-have for any watch enthusiast who appreciates a timeless design and exceptional quality. The timepiece is perfect for any occasion, whether a business meeting or a weekend getaway.
