IWC HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE


The Young Professional

 

You have your qualifications under your belt, and now it’s time to start finding a wristwatch to express your sense of style. One of IWC’s best-selling models in three families could be ideal.

For a touch of the laid-back Italian way of life, featuring a pristine design with universal appeal, the watch of choice has to be the Portofino Automatic in stainless steel.

 

You may prefer to get a foothold in the family with an 80-year history: the Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII has all the authentic specifications that have set the line apart and ensured its ongoing popularity.

 

Alternatively, you could go for a perennial IWC favourite: the classically designed Portugieser Chronograph. In a stainless steel case with alligator leather strap, its simple dial, Arabic numerals and feuille-style hands are testament to your good taste.


The Connoisseur

 

You have felt at home in the world of luxury watches for many years, and you have the good taste, experience and discernment to recognize the best when you see it.

With its imposing 48-millimetre titanium case and no-frills instrument-inspired design, the Big Pilot’s Watch Heritage in titanium was modelled on the Big Pilot's Watch 52 T.S.C. and has firmly established itself as a collector’s item.

 

The classic balance of the Portugieser Chronograph Classic in 18-carat red gold reflects many of the features of the first, iconic Portugieser and, with its in-house 89361 calibre, firmly underscores advanced technology.

 

A flagship of the IWC collection since 1990, the Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph has multiple functions and effortlessly blends style and complexity with user-friendly ingenuity.


The Adventurer

 

You never rest. Surmounting the goals and challenges you set yourself merely poses new ones, as you push yourself relentlessly in pursuit of perfection. And you expect no less of your watch.

Featuring an iconic black dial and simple, classic design, the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph in stainless steel with comfort-fit bracelet is the perfect choice no matter what the situation.

 

Like you, the Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph breaks the mould and is the first model in the family with a distinctively sporting note. With marine instrument precision, it is the perfect watch for competition but also looks the part whatever the occasion.

 

Including eye-catching push-buttons and a simple, functional dial, the fresh, elegant design of the sporty Portofino Chronograph conjures up images of the world-famous former fishing village.


The Trendsetter

Friends and acquaintances admire your ability to recognize exciting new ideas and to adopt them before anyone else: your choice of trailblazing timepieces sets you apart.

The Pilot’s Mark XVIII Tribute to Mark XI is instantly recognizable as a member of the illustrious watch family, but has certain subtle details that soften the dial and underscore its pedigree.

 

Leaning on its ever-popular predecessor of 1998, the Portugieser Chronograph with a blue dial is an exquisite example of fine-quality watchmaking designed for individuals in search of something special.

 

Making an even bolder statement than the other members of the family, the Big Pilot’s Heritage in bronze has a distinct character of its own that will enhance its desirability for fashion-makers worldwide.


The Empowered Woman

Self-assured and independent, you take everything in your stride. And you demonstrate the same decisive, clear thinking that sets you apart when it comes to your choice of wristwatch.

A classically elegant, three-hand timepiece, the Portofino Automatic 37 blends purist design with a touch of luxury. Housed in a 37-millimetre case, it is the ideal choice for a slender wrist.

 

The Pilot’s Watch Automatic 36 has all the design cues and features typical of a Pilot’s Watch and will appeal to individuals with a preference for understatement and timeless design.

 

A smaller case with articulated lugs, simple dial with beautifully designed moon phase display and fine-quality materials make the Da Vinci Automatic Moon Phase 36 the perfect timepiece for the woman who appreciates understated luxury.
