Moscow, 6 December 2013 – Three years ago, in the prestigious setting of Berlinskiy Dom, Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen opened the doors of its first boutique in Moscow.

At the official opening ceremony yesterday evening, IWC Friends of the Brand Alexei Nemov and Sergey Mazaev shared the honour of cutting the ribbon together with IWC Brand Manager in Russia & CIS, Luc Rochereau.

“We are delighted to announce the reopening of the IWC boutique in the heart of the prestigious Petrovka Street – the perfect address for the world of luxury watchmaking. We look forward to offering our guests the best service in this exclusive location with a fantastic collection and rare limited editions. We are inviting them to experience IWC’s craftsmanship, design and watchmaking expertise,” says Luc Rochereau, Brand Manager IWC Russia & CIS.

The world-famous gymnast and winner of 12 Olympic medals, Alexei Nemov, commented on the boutique opening event: “Through my career, I can relate to IWC Schaffhausen in its quest for innovation, technicity and perfection.
