It is time to talk about the 150 the anniversary of IWC and it’s “150 Years Anniversary” editions.

There are more brands to come in the next days, as well as some general thoughts about the industry and where we watch aficionados are heading to.

For me it is time to look back, but I do also invite YOU to share YOUR thoughts with us.

IWC Tribute to Pallweber Edition “150 Years” (Ref. IW505002) The digital hour and minute display for pocket watches was developed by Austrian watchmaker Josef Pallweber. Johannes Rauschenbach-Schenk was in charge of IWC at the time. He was impressed by this innovative approach to displaying the time and secured the patent licence for the “Pallweber system”.

SIHH 2018: The IWC Schaffhausen Novelties (updated with prices)

IWC, the manufacturer based in Schaffhausen, is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year.  

IWC is launching a special Jubilee collection to mark the occasion.

IWC launches 27 new limited-edition watches, 24 of which come from the ‘Portugieser’, ‘Portofino’, ‘Pilot’s Watch’ and ‘Da Vinci’ watch families.

IWC covers everything from masterpieces of Haute Horlogerie with a constant-force tourbillon to watches with a perpetual calendar and classic timepieces with three hands. 

IWC also includes a premiere: three wristwatches with the original digital hour and minute display as it appeared on the ‘Pallweber’ pocket watches back in 1884.

I recently already presented some of these watches to you under the headline Pre-SIHH 2018.

Today you will see the entire IWC-SIHH-collection 2018 at a glance …
