To mark IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN Watches’ history and passion for aviation while celebrating a milestone moment in IWC’s support for the “Silver Spitfire – The Longest Flight” expedition in collaboration with Steve Boultbee-Brooks and Matt Jones, Founders of the Boultbee Flight Academy, the brand brought its famed Pilot’s Watches to Soho House Mumbai. On display for guests were timepieces from the Pilot’s collection, which made their debut in January 2019 at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva. The collection features three highly distinct sub-lines: the Spitfire, which captures the outstanding engineering expertise of IWC; the Top Gun, which sports a line-up of models machined from robust innovative materials; and Le Petit Prince, which translates Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s most famous literary work into stunning masterpieces of Haute Horlogerie.
“We have seen an increasing appreciation and awareness of IWC Schaffhausen among a growing number of collectors across major cities in India. This has fuelled our recent performance in the country and led to exclusive experiences such as this evening’s event (the display of new watches). The Pilot’s Watches form the
heart and soul of the brand and we are indeed very pleased to be able to present a special viewing of the collection for our esteemed patrons in India,” said Mehdi Rajan, IWC Schaffhausen Brand Director for the Middle East, India and Africa.
Gracing the event was the brand’s ambassador Sonam Kapoor. “I’m proud to have been part of the IWC family for more than three years. Their latest Pilot’s collection and the collaboration with the ‘Silver Spitfire – The Longest Flight’ expedition once again prove their passion, precision and great engineering,” she said.
