A well-known friend of the brand has accepted the invitation of IWC Schaffhausen as early as May 2010, and is pleased to go to Portofino to take part in the filming-this picturesque Italian coast resort is the Portofino watch series The inspiration for the name. The prop costumes in them all perfectly reproduce the style of the 1960s and are full of charm.

‘Time goes by. Only at Portofino. When the clouds overwhelm the bay, the town looks so mysterious.’ Peter Lindbergh uses the light of the lens and beautiful text to represent the small town of Portofino and his watch. A beautiful interpretation of the good life: ‘When I was sitting in Portofino, time seemed to stand still. The scenery in front of me was the same as fifty years ago, when Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Dede · Richard Burton strolls in the small square: a colorful house and fishing boat gently shaking on the sparkling sea. After half a century, this Italian fishing village has become a gathering of celebrities around the world Resort. The sun is slowly setting, and there are many stylish bars on the square next to the harbour. The atmosphere is casual and pleasant, which is a portrait of the beautiful Mediterranean style life here. On a rainy morning, I stared at the sea and enjoyed the time. A row of bright new yachts. The steering wheel of the yacht reminds me of the Portofino chronograph watch that I love, with exquisite button design. Maybe the designer In the creation of this extraordinary watch, the inspiration really came from the steering wheel of the yacht.

On the road opposite the shore, a Vespa scooter kept making noises, and a pair of dreadful images immediately appeared before my eyes-Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn The plot of a drive in the movie ‘Roman Holiday’.
The night was low, and after finishing the day, we went to the hotel bar to relax and drank the bartender Becalli to prepare one of our most famous Bellini wines. On the wall behind the bartender are black-and-white photos of the VIPs of the old hotel, not only stars such as Rex Harrison and Ingrid Bergmann, but also other celebrities such as Lisa Minelli ( Liza Minelli) and Alain Delon. At this time, people wearing the Portofino manual winding eight-day power watch finally have time to wind the watch. This watch will stop automatically after precise operation for eight consecutive days and will need to be re-wound.
Time flies, and only Portofino retains it for an instant. Dark clouds over the entire harbour, surrounded by a mysterious atmosphere, and this is the ideal environment for this shooting. However, a place where the sun shines, gradually illuminates the place where people can enjoy a good life. The small square was as packed as ever, so Elizabeth Taylor in shorts and a beach bag was walking around the square.
