Any enterprise must possess a healthy respect for commerce. However, at IWC Schaffhausen we recognize that our heritage, our 143-year commitment to innovation and craftsmanship, is beyond the measure of monetary value. There are some things that simply cannot be bought. We value our customers as an intrinsic element in this priceless heritage.
In appreciation of this special relationship, IWC is curating two Money Can’t Buy Experiences as part of our partnership with the Volvo Ocean Race – the world’s premier around-the-world yachting competition.
As Official Timekeeper of the Volvo Ocean Race and Team Sponsor for the Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing Team, we have a unique opportunity to grant the winners behind-the-scenes access to one of the world’s greatest sporting events.
—The competition will have two prize drawings and will be open for the entire eight-month period
Registrants will be entered for a chance to win one of two Money Can’t Buy Experiences during the Volvo Ocean Race:
• Two round trip flights to a Volvo Ocean Race stage destination
• Hotel accommodations (Including airport and hotel ground transportation)
• An IWC Portuguese Yacht Club Chronograph
• In-port sailing experience (subject to weather conditions at location)
• A VIP visit to the Volvo Ocean Race Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing boat and private meet-and-greet with the team
