IWC Schaffhausen is turning 150 next year and to celebrate the milestone the company will unveil a Jubilee Collection at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) watch fair in January.
The showcase will have 27 limited-edition models from the Portugieser, Portofino, Pilotís Watches and Da Vinci families. All the watches will have imprinted dials in white or blue, an effect achieved by a process of applying several layers of lacquer, reminiscent of heritage enamelled finishes.
Eye-catching launches shown in advance to WatchPro include a Tribute to Pallweber Edition 150 Years (Ref. IW505002) an 18-carat red gold-cased wristwatch that features the original digital hours and minute display as on the Pallweber pocket watches back in 1884.
