After proving themselves invaluable for decades, traditionally-designed chronograph timepieces have always enjoyed a deep following. However, for those looking for the functionality, but with a slightly more sophisticated and subtle look, this IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Monopusher might be the answer. Known for their technical sophistication, the IWC Portofino watch family adds this first-ever model with an ingenious single push-button chronograph that handles all three functions: start, stop, and reset. Capable of measuring up to sixty minutes, the integrated design takes the old school 2 o'clock and 4 o'clock design and integrates it into one button on the white or red gold crown. The watch is powered by a 59360 calibre with an 8-day, 192-hour power reserve that can itself be tracked with a dedicated indicator at the 9 o'clock position. Finished with a matching Santoni alligator leather strap, you can add this timepiece to your collection now directly via IWC.
