IWC- SIHH 2018 – January News

IWC celebrate 150th anniversary presenting a 27-piece limited edition Jubilee collection at SIHH 2018 to mark this big milestone!

To celebrate the 150 years since its founding in 1868, IWC has put together the 150th Anniversary Jubilee Collection: 27 watches encompassing all of the brand’s bestselling model lines.

IWC Jubilee SIHH 5 models-768 x 423

IWC Pallweber 1884-pock watch-768 x 423

The IWC jubilee collection revisits icons from the history of IWC and unifies them through a timeless design code to form a single striking collection,” explains Christoph Grainger-Herr, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen. All the watches on show were linked by a overarching design inspired by one of the earliest IWC pocketwatches, the Pallweber.

24 out of the 27 pieces come from the ‘Portugieser’, ‘Portofino’, ‘Pilot’s Watch’ and ‘Da Vinci’ watch families.

The design of the Jubilee collection is inspired by iconic models from the past 150 years of IWC. The white enamel dials on some of the historic Pallweber pocket watches (the original feature above) provided the aesthetic blueprint for the high-quality lacquered dials in this collection. We drew our inspiration from the unusual aesthetic appeal of the enamelled dials used for the historic Pallweber watches,” explains Christian Knoop, Creative Director at IWC Schaffhausen. Let’s take a closer look…
