My first watch was a gift from my grandmother; I treasured it and wore it throughout my secondary school years. After graduating university, I did various design jobs, and one particular place I worked at was a jewelry design studio. A client we were working with was wearing an IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph, and without knowing what it was at the time, I was simply drawn to its aesthetics, the neat dial layout and the chronograph buttons on the side. I was a big fan but also curious to find out more, so we then started a conversation about it and from there I had my first introduction to watches.
One of the first watches I drew was the IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph because of this. When IWC contacted me to work on some artworks for their new release, I was overjoyed and honored to be given the opportunity. It still blows my mind that I get to work with the brand that got me interested in watches in the first place and that will probably be a story I’ll always tell while wearing my IWC watch.
