IWC CELEBRATES 150TH ANNIVERSARY

WITH STUNNING GALA EVENING

To celebrate its 150th anniversary, IWC is currently showcasing a spectacular Jubilee collection comprising a total of 27 limited-edition watches from the Portugieser, Portofino, Pilot’s Watches and Da Vinci families at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogierie in Geneva. In keeping with tradition, IWC invited guests to an exclusive gala evening, pulling out all the stops with a glamorous event to mark the year of IWC’s 150th anniversary, hosted by TV presenter Tess Daly. Performances by Aloe Blacc, jazz drummer Eric Harland and singer Ronan Keating were also met with rousing applause during the evening. Another star attraction came in the form of Paloma Faith, a singer who won the Brit Award for “Best British Female Solo Artist” in 2015 and made it straight to number one in the official top 100 chart in England with her album “The Architect” about a month ago.
