Cate Blanchett, Emily Blunt, Zhou Xun, Christoph Waltz, and Ewan McGregor on set together! Sounds like a great casting for a drama feature. Alas this dream cast was brought together only briefly for a commercial promoting watch manufacturer replica IWC Schaffhausen’s new Portofino Midsize models.
Filmed in black and white by Peter Lindbergh and Stephen Kidd, the movie stars, all dressed in elegant black tuxedos, are shown in relaxed settings around the picturesque Italian harbor town of iwc portofino replica where they stroll through the garden of La Cervara, an ancient abbey; chat over an espresso and enjoy a Riva boat ride, a group of old friends enjoying la dolce vita.
Comparing her experience with an earlier shoot for the brand, Cate Blanchett said, “Although I loved portraying the dolce vita of the 1950s and 1960s during the Portofino photo shoot in 2010, I think this year’s experience with Peter Lindbergh was filled with more chic, more intensity, and more passion,” while Christoph Waltz mused he would have liked “to stop time and linger just a little longer.”
The launch of the new Midsize Portofino is accompanied by a touring photographic exhibition entitled “Timeless Portofino,” now in Hong Kong for cheap iwc Watches & Wonders fair, moving on to London on October 7 for the London Film Festival, then to Dubai on October 15 and finally Art Basel Miami on December 3. The exhibition of photographs from the film shoot, also includes a separate series shot by Lindberg with supermodels Adriana Lima and Karolina Kurkova.
The 2014 Portofino Midsize collection includes three new 37-millimetre models in 17 different versions: the Portofino Midsize Automatic Moon Phase (Ref. 4590), the replica Portofino Midsize Automatic Day & Night (Ref. 4591) and the Portofino Midsize Automatic (Ref. 4581), including some with precious stones dazzling like the movie stars.
“With the Midsize collection, we are making this successful, classic replica IWC Schaffhausen Portofino watch line more interesting for customers with slimmer wrists,” explains Georges Kern, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen. “The diamond-set models will appeal to anyone with a preference for wristwatches that combine understated design with a touch of the exquisite.”
