Schaffhausen, 9th February 2023: IWC Schaffhausen introduces the Portofino Complete Calendar. Presented in 18-carat 5N gold or stainless steel, it is the first timepiece to feature the new complete calendar module developed by IWC. Joining the perpetual and annual calendars, the complete calendar underscores the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer’s unique expertise in engineering robust and functional calendar complications. The complete calendar shows the date, day of the week, month and moon phase in two subdials and only needs to be manually adjusted at the end of a month which has less than 31 days. In addition, IWC launches the Portofino Automatic Pointer Date, the first Portofino model with a jumping date indication in a sub counter at 6 o’clock.

After bringing the iconic perpetual calendar back to the Portofino line, IWC Schaffhausen presents three new models with calendar and date complications. While underscoring the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer’s extensive know-how and experience in engineering functional and robust complications, these references also reflect the casual yet elegant design code that has distinguished the Portofino line since it was created in 1984.

Presented in a 41-millimetre case size in 18-carat 5N gold or stainless steel, the Portofino Complete Calendar (Ref. 3590) is the first IWC timepiece to feature the newly developed complete calendar module. The subdial at 12 o’clock displays the day of the week and the moon phase, while the date and month are shown at 6 o’clock. The calendar module consists of 69 individual parts. Each display is driven by a separate gear train and can be adjusted independently of the others via the crown or using two correction buttons integrated into the side of the case. The calendar only needs to be adjusted in months with less than 31 days. On the last day of the month, the date must be manually set to position 31 via the crown. All displays, including the high-precision moon phase display, will then automatically advance by one day around midnight. The calendar module is mounted on top of the IWC-manufactured 32150 calibre. This highly precise and reliable automatic movement features a pawl winding system and a power reserve of 72 hours.

One version (Ref. IW359002) features an 18-carat 5N gold case, a silver-plated dial, gold-plated hands, solid gold appliques, and a taupe calfskin strap. The second model (Ref. IW359001) is presented with a stainless steel case, a silver-plated dial, gold-plated hands and appliques, and a blue calfskin strap. Both references are fitted with straps made of traceable Swiss calf leather, boasting a natural and soft finish and a contemporary, luxurious look.

The Portofino Automatic Pointer Date (Ref. IW359201) features a pointer date indication in a sub counter at 6 o’clock. On the analog display, a small hand points to the current date. Every night around midnight, the pointer jumps to the new date. This classic and elegant Portofino features a 39-millimetre stainless steel case, a silver-plated dial, and gold-plated hands and appliques. It is fitted with a brown calfskin strap with a quick-change system.

The Portofino Complete Calendar will be available as of April 2023, while the Portofino Automatic Pointer Date will be available as of February 2023 through IWC boutiques, authorised retail partners, or online at Additionally, they are eligible for registration under the My IWC care program, benefitting from a 6-year extension to the standard 2-year International Limited Warranty.
