A celebrated Swiss watch manufacturer, IWC Schaffhausen is celebrating its 150th anniversary with an exclusive retrospective exhibition at ION Orchard, Singapore this May.

Decked in an industrial-style decor that mirrors the IWC manufacture in its early days, the exhibition is a celebration of all of IWC’s past glorious inventions and the new Jubilee watch collection – set to open from 1st May to 13th May 2018.

Back in 1868, a young man aimed to bring his vision of making the best pocket watch movements to life. Travelling all the way from America to Switzerland, Florentine Ariosto Jones established a watch company and that was IWC Schaffhausen.

Under his leadership, the Maison has gained international recognition for its innovation such as Special Watch for Pilots Ref. 436 (1936), the Yacht Club Automatic Ref. 811 (1967) and Lepine Pallweber III pocket watch (1886), which will grace the Singapore’s exhibition.

And this is also your chance to admire the masterpieces of the new Jubilee collection, namely the diamond-encrusted Da Vinci Automatic Moon Phase 36 Edition “150 Years” and the Portugieser Constant-Force Tourbillon Edition “150 years”.

On the anniversary celebration, Managing Director for IWC South East Asia Mr. Stanislas Rambaud says, “For 150 years, IWC has remained true to the legacy of its founder F.A. Jones and made many lasting impressions from both an artistic and a technical perspective in the world of fine watchmaking”.

 

The IWC Schaffhausen 150th Anniversary exhibition will take place in ION Orchard, Singapore from 1st May to 13th May 2018.
