In this Edition of WATCH International Magazine on iPad, IWC takes you on a journey around the world.
Throughout the issue, you will find success stories of personalities from all around the world. To start, the issue features a tribute to the greatest and most popular athlete of all time: the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Edition Muhammad Ali – paying homage to the boxing legend, who celebrated his seventieth birthday this year. This outstanding section includes remarkable images taken throughout Ali’s world-wide career by his best friend and renowned photographer, Howard Bingham.
The issue also highlights the IWC Flagship Boutique on New York’s Madison Avenue, which takes IWC back to our American roots. Scarcely two miles from the place where Florentine Ariosto Jones – founder of the International Watch Company – once managed early enterprise, the Flagship perpetuates our founder’s story. With its unique interior architecture, IWC’s largest sales outlet worldwide places the emphasis on giving customers an unforgettable experience by allowing them to explore the themes of our watch collections, and to experience our brand’s philosophy with all their senses.
We hope you enjoy the issue.
