IWC Schaffhausen Portofino Automatic 34 Ladies New Models

Swiss luxury watch brand IWC Schaffhausen has reworked and extended the Portofino Automatic 34 ladies’ collection by introducing new models.

Joining this range of elegant ladies’ watches is the Portofino Automatic Day & Night 34, the first 34-millimetre Portofino to feature a charming day & night complication. The classic Portofino Automatic 34 has been improved in numerous details and is available in six new versions. The entire collection is fitted either with calfskin straps or a newly developed high-grade 5-link stainless steel bracelet.

With its reduced case diameter of 34 millimetres, the Portofino Automatic 34 is the perfect choice for more slender wrists and offers excellent wearing comfort. Following the initial launch of this model in 2019, IWC is now extending the collection and upgrading this successful ladies’ watch in numerous details.

For the models featuring diamond-set bezels, the shape of the case has been optimised to accommodate larger stones of 1.7 millimetres. The dial and the case of these references are decorated with 66 diamonds totalling almost 1 carat.

In addition, because of an improved setting, the diamonds reflect the light better and have a more visible presence and added brilliance. IWC has also applied a new type of sunray finish to the silver-plated dials. This surface treatment makes the dials appear softer and even more refined.

The Portofino Automatic 34 collection is now fitted with new straps and bracelets. Some models feature calfskin straps with a butterfly folding clasp. These straps have a natural and soft finish and boast a contemporary, luxurious look.

Other references are fitted with a newly developed high-grade 5-link stainless steel bracelet with polished and satin-finished surfaces. This sophisticated bracelet with a modern design is highly comfortable to wear.

All models feature a quick-change system, making it possible to change the strap or bracelet using a small tool supplied with every timepiece.

The Portofino Automatic Day & Night 34 is t he first 34-millimetre Portofino with a poetic day & night complication, which provides a particularly charming visualisation of t he passing of time.

A disc a t 6 o’clock rotates around its axis once every 24 hours and indicates whether it is currently day or night. At noon or midnight, the sun or the moon appears in the upper area of the display. The colour of the celestial bodies matches the hands and appliques.
