If you were to approach the former fishing village of Portofino from the sea, the picturesque old houses could easily trick you into thinking that time had stood still, until you suddenly notice the sleek yachts with their luxury interiors and state-of-the-art technology lying at anchor. The elegant Portofino Chronograph provokes a similar reaction; its striking chronograph push-buttons are reminiscent of the cockpit of 1960s Italian sports cars. In much the same style, the stopwatch displays bring a distinctly sporty touch to the entire Portofino family. The watch, which features a convex sapphire glass and appliquéd Roman numerals, is driven by the time-tested self-winding 75320 calibre with its 44-hour power reserve. Apart from the classical alligator leather straps, there is a choice of cool but snug-fitting Milanaise mesh bracelets that underscore the timeless character of the Portofino Chronograph.
