    IWC will again make a donation to Tribeca Film Institute, the nonprofit affiliate of the Tribeca Film Festival, through the auction of watch and the entire proceeds will go to support Tribeca Film Institute. The auction package also includes exclusive VIP access to the Tribeca Film Festival, an invitation to the “For the Love of Cinema” private dinner hosted by IWC Schaffhausen, as well as luxury hotel accommodation in New York City. Interested buyers from all over the globe by visiting www.christies.com/iwctribeca.


    “This is an excellent opportunity to acquire not only an exceptional timepiece, but to also make a difference to the future of a filmmaker” John Reardon, International Head of Christie’s Watches.


    The Portofino Monopusher features a single push-button mechanism, which is integrated in the crown. Pressing the multifunctional pusher twice starts and stops the chronograph. When it is pushed a third time, all the chronograph hands are reset to zero. The chronograph records times of up to 60 minutes. The movement has a power reserve of 192 hours – or precisely 8 days. The timepiece also features a white gold case set against a slate-colored dial with Bordeaux subdials. As in years past, the subdials’ hue is inspired by Hollywood’s iconic red carpet, while the slate-colored dial is inspired by the streets of Tribeca in New York, laden with steel and concrete.

    That watch is absolutely stunning. Tried the non-LE version of this (all grey dial) and was blown away by the detail and the movement. (although a bit large at 45mm).
    But that caseback.. oh my - I'd wear it face down if I could

    OK I'll admit it...it doesn't do anything for me. I'd get excited if they used different hands and moved the power reserve to the back of the watch.
