London, September 2013 – As Official Engineering Partner of the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One™ Team, IWC Schaffhausen will host a series of Watchmaking Master-classes at the team’s global headquarters in Brackley and offer invited guests an exclusive behind-the-scenes factory tour. This experience will provide a fascinating insight into the parallels between the engineering in motorsport and watchmaking, with expert knowledge ‘on hand’ from both sides.
IWC Schaffhausen has been engineering time since 1868 and the Watchmaking Master-class is a unique opportunity to learn how to de-construct and re-construct one of IWC’s in-house manufactured watch movements, as well as viewing a selection of limited IWC haute horlogerie timepieces.
