IWC Schaffhausen

Celebrating 150 years of heritage


150 years of heritage is no mean feat! This is indeed a milestone to celebrate with aplomb. Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen celebrated its 150th anniversary at an intimate brunch held at The Oberoi and hosted by Mehdi Rajan, Brand Director for the Middle East, India and Africa, and Sandeep Kapoor, Managing Director of Kapoor Watch Company. The rooftop terrace was filled with the sounds of the live saxophone performance.

IWC brand ambassador Sonam Kapoor and selected guests celebrated this momentous occasion and also received an exclusive viewing of the specially created “150 Years” Jubilee collection which comprises 29 limited-edition watches from the Portugieser, Portofino, Pilot’s Watch and Da Vinci families, as well as the Tribute to Pallweber timepieces.

Sonam Kapoor said: “As we near the end of a fantastic year for IWC, it is my pleasure to be part of the 150th anniversary celebration in India. As a brand, IWC is an amalgamation of heritage, culture and innovation, which is symbolic of the new India as well. With its game-changing history and pioneering craftsmanship evident in the limited-edition timepieces created for the Jubilee collection, IWC is very close to my heart. All the pieces are truly collector’s items with beauty, perfection, precision and great engineering. This is the definition of luxury for me.”
