Last night luxury watchmaker IWC Schaffhausen hosted their highly-anticipated yearly gala at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva, Switzerland. The “Inside the Wave” gala celebrated the launch of IWC’s new Aquatimer watches.

IWC CEO Georges Kern welcomed guests like Kevin Spacey, Susan Sarandon, Ewan McGregor, Karolina Kurkova, Adriana Lima and Melanie Laurent, as well as celebrity brand ambassadors and F1 superstars Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg.

In keeping with the Aquatimer diver’s watch theme, the gala space was transformed into an underwater world, with hammerhead sharks and shoals of fish projected onto the walls.

The highlight of the evening was a performance designed especially for IWC by Cirque du Soleil, whose artists performed with musical interludes provided by former Supertramp vocalist Roger Hodgson.
