We’re starting the week off in style today with exclusive photos from our visit to the IWC Schaffhausen boutique in New York City! Their Madison Avenue space is incredible, with uniquely decorated areas dedicated to each of their collections – for example, an aviation-themed sitting room for their Pilot watches.
We saw some incredible pieces, and have brought you an exclusive look at a few of our favorites:
Portuguese Tourbillon Mystère Squelette
This 44.2mm timepiece literally made our jaws drop, as it’s very rare to see a skeleton watch from IWC! True to its name, this piece combines a tourbillon with the traditional craftsman’s arts of skeletonising, engine-turning and engraving. Only 50 pieces of the white gold version pictured here were produced.
Portofino Automatic Portofino Boutique Edition
This 40mm timepiece was designed for the manufacture’s Portofino boutique. Set in white gold, it features a blue dial and an engraving of the city’s famous harbor on the caseback.
Portofino Big Date
This 45mm red gold timepiece features a big date display, the first in the Portofino watch family. The dial also features a power reserve display and a separate small hacking seconds sub-dial.
