IWC at SIHH 2011

Post by docrwm on Thu 20 Jan 2011, 8:10 am



This is the new IWC Portofino Dual Time. It is another in the new Portofino collection, IWC’s Collection of focus this year.

Portofino Dual Time

Reference 3610

Anyone who communicates with people worldwide or frequently travels to different time zones will appreciate the new Portofino Dual Time. While the hour and minute hands display the current local time, the 24-hour display keeps you in touch with the time back at home. The local time can be simply advanced or turned back in one-hour steps using the crown. This also adjusts the date, turning it backwards or forwards.

In a global business world, international travel, telephone calls and video conferences across several time zones are the order of the day. To ensure you are not disturbing the family back at home or business associates in cities on the other side of the world, it makes sense to be always aware of two different times. And, for that, the new Portofino Dual Time was developed. While the 24-hour display shows the time back at home, the central hour and minute hands display the current local time. This can be simply advanced or turned back in one-hour steps using the crown. This also adjusts the date, turning it backwards or forwards. The new 64710 calibre keeps the watch running for 72 hours when fully wound. The Portofino Dual Time with its Santoni alligator leather strap is available in red gold with a black dial and solid gold indices or in stainless steel with a choice of a black or a silver-plated dial.

Beautiful. I'm really starting to fall in love with the gold case (either yellow or rose) with slate grey dial look.

They are beautiful. They're also rather large for dress watches at 45mm.

Beautiful pieces. I have one dress watch that rarely gets worn but I can appreciate them. What's the cost of one of those bad boys Robert?
