The IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Pure Classic

The latest watch to join IWC Schaffhausen’s ranks is a celebration of the Portofino’s rich legacy. The Hand-Wound Pure Classic is stripped to its very core: just a watch designed to tell time; no frills, no fuss, no embellishments. The most modest watch of the IWC Schaffhausen collection, the Hand-Wound Pure Classic’s sole distraction is the timepiece itself. No one detail overshadows the next, but looking at the watch as a whole, the beauty of its design is breathtaking.

Featuring a traditional, arched-edge front glass, the 43.5-millimeter diameter timepiece is effortlessly balanced by a perfectly minimal design. The face remains so untouched that even the power reserve dial can be moved to the back. It’s also designed to run for 192 hours (eight full days) and features an indexless balance with four golden weight screws, a Breguet spring, and a see-through sapphire glass back.

It retails for upwards of $20,000.
