Replica IWC Portofino Automatic, the Portofino collection got a refresh in 2011, including the most basic model, the Portofino Automatic. The case was slightly upsized, from 38 to 40mm and while an increase in case diameter’s usually a cause for hand-wringing among horological traditionalists, in this case it actually improved the proportions; the watch now actually seems thinner, though the overall thickness hasn’t changed (9.5mm.). Other changes include a thinner bezel, the addition of (very subtle) numbers to the minute track, and the replacement of the double marker at 12:00 with an XII, as well as an inverted VI at, natch, 6:00. The previous black-dialed version also had a white date disk and the new version replaces this with a black date disk –a better fit for the watch.
