IWC at the SIHH 2012 Gala Event

The Story of the Pilot’s Watches




As part of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), IWC Schaffhausen invited around 1,000 guests and journalists from all over the world to the launch of its new Pilot’s Watch collection in Geneva.
Under the motto “TOP GUN”, and in the presence of celebrities like Cate Blanchett, Jean Reno, Ewan McGregor, Ronan Keating, sporting legends Boris Becker, Luís Figo and Zinédine Zidane as well as top model Adriana Lima, guests enjoyed an unforgettable gala evening rounded off with a performance from the legendary Bryan Ferry.

IWC’s exhibition stand at this year’s Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie is another outstanding achievement: a highly detailed aircraft carrier, which spans 900 m2 and features a command centre structure, flight deck, steam catapult, hangar, flight control and pilot’s locker room. In a relatively small space, IWC succeeds in creating an uncannily authentic atmosphere using specially selected details and decorative elements for the launch of the new IWC Pilot’s Watches.

Friends of the Brand like Jean Reno, Ronan Keating, Marc Forster and Arsène Wenger as well as other celebrities were happy to let IWC CEO Georges Kern show them around the fabulous exhibition stand before going off to enjoy the gala evening.

The Chanel J12 for Ladies

Featured luxury collection



The Chanel collection is largely known for the white ceramic Chanel J12 and the black ceramic Chanel J12, both featuring 33mm high-gloss ceramic cases and quartz movements.

Released in 1999, the J12 was also Chanel’s first unisex watch, combining feminine touches and details with a fresh and masculine theme. Jeweled models with diamond bezels, hour markers, dials, cases and straps offer a variation of design and diamond placement. Precious metal trims, such as gold, pink gold and silver, are combined with the diamond variations to create a wide range of options.

The new Chromatic J12 model utilizes a new Titanium ceramic coating creating a scratch-resistant material that offers a unique luster and is combined with Rhodium-plated and mirror-polished numerals and hands.

The Chanel J12 has been seen on the wrist of many female celebrities including Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio, Scarlett Johansson, Anna Kournikova, and Blake Lively confirming the impact the J12 has had on pop culture.

Quentin Tarantino and IWC

Celebrities and Watches




Quentin Tarantino, one of Hollywood’s most acclaimed controversial and quirky directors has been regularly seen wearing luxury watches by the Swiss brand IWC. 

This time around we can see Tarantino’s choice at the time, a beautiful and superb Pilot’s Watch, in perfect timing of the year of the Pilot’s Watches at IWC.

Quentin Jerome Tarantino, born on March 27th 1963 in Knoxville, Tennessee, appeared for the first time as a director at the Sundance Film Festival in 1992 with the much acclaimed moved Reservoir Dogs.  The film garnered critical acclaim and the director became a legend immediately. Two years later, he followed up Dogs success with Pulp Fiction (1994) which premiered at the Cannes film festival, winning the coveted Palme D'Or Award. At the 1995 Academy Awards, it was nominated for the best picture, best director and best original screenplay. Tarantino and writing partner Roger Avary came away with the award only for best original screenplay. In 1995, Tarantino directed one fourth of the anthology Four Rooms (1995) with friends and fellow auteurs Alexandre Rockwell, Robert Rodriguez and Allison Anders. The film opened on December 25th in the United States to very weak reviews. Tarantino's next film was From Dusk Till Dawn (1996), a vampire/crime story which he wrote and co-starred with George Clooney.

As with the Olympic Games, each of the 63 events in all 15 disciplines will be timed by Omega. Since 1932, Omega has been Official Timekeeper 24 times; the brand is particularly proud to be bringing its unparalleled sports timekeeping legacy to Innsbruck for the first edition of the Winter Youth Olympic Games.
