Do you know your ragtime guitarists like you know your watch brands? Don’t worry, not many people do, but if these guitarists were watches, they would most certainly be the glittering haute horology brands we lust over.

Its modular concept allows materials and finishes of the different elements to be varied, giving each model a different personality, especially the feminine ones.

For years, the Portofino line from IWC Schaffhausen was seen as the silent star of the company’s portfolio. However the line has increasingly been the focus of attention from watch devotees, mainly due to its appeal based on minimalist design and discreet elegance.
