IWC is pleased to announce that the winner in our Volvo Ocean Race Money Can’t Buy Experiences contest is Dominik Fankhauser, from Switzerland.
Amazingly, Dominik is not only an IWC fan and the proud owner of two IWC timepieces, but he is also an avid sailor- with over ten years of sailing experience – and happens to drive a Volvo.
It must have been written in the stars. Congratulations to Mr. Fankhauser, for his big win.
