IWC To Unveil Pilot’s Watches Exhibition In Malaysia This Week

Starting tomorrow (July 1st) right up to July 9thIWC will be exhibiting its Pilot’s Watches at Pavilion KL’s Centre Court, with a setup inspired by the Silver Spitfire’s upcoming Longest Flight around the world, complete with a replica of the aircraft atop. This exhibition, which coincides with the new boutique in partnership with Swiss Watch Gallery, is open to the public, will also showcase the Special Watch for Pilots and the Mark 1 1, which have been flown in especially for this event.

As if this isn’t reason enough to head on over to the exhibit, there will also be rare watches from IWC’s archives on display, including the Maison’s first Big Pilot’s Watch from 1940; the famed W.W.W. for the British Army from 1945;  and the Ref. 3705 Pilot’s Watch Chronograph from 1994 (its second ever timepiece to be crafted from high-tech ceramic). Aside from archival pieces, keep your eyes peeled for the new Pilot’s Watches which made their debut at this year’s Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva, the Spitfire  and Top Gun created from Ceratanium and sand-coloured ceramic.

With a storied legacy spanning over 80 years in manufacturing Pilot’s Watches, IWC is extremely proud to be the main sponsor of Silver Spitfire – The Longest Flight. In the same spirit as the expedition, our goal for the IWC Pilot’s Watches Exhibition is to showcase the company’s unrivalled engineering expertise and, hopefully, inspire an interest in mechanics among people no matter their age or background ~ Stanislas Rambaud, Managing Director, IWC South East Asia~

Now, let’s all fly (heh, see what I did there?) on over to Pavilion Centre Court to check out this one-of-a-kind exhibition!
