IWC is proud to announce the launch of the Chinese Language (Traditional and Simplified) on IWC.com.
Now, IWC fans in all Chinese-speaking nations can enjoy reading about their favorite watches and all IWC activities in their native tongue. For those reading in Chinese Simplified, please also note our new link to the IWC channel on Weibo.
We look forward to hearing from you. After all, as Lao Tzu said: “The journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step”. This is our first step, and we are enthusiastic to share the IWC experience with this region of great global importance.
