IWC Schaffhausen joined by Sonam Kapoor to celebrate its 150th Anniversary in New Delhi with Kapoor Watch Company
Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen celebrated its 150th anniversary at an intimate brunch held at The Oberoi and hosted by Mehdi Rajan, Brand Director for the Middle East, India and Africa, and Sandeep Kapoor, Managing Director of Kapoor Watch Company.
Marking a milestone in the brand’s history, IWC brought 150 years of excellence in watchmaking to The Oberoi, New Delhi, an iconic luxury hotel that overlooks the lush green golf course of the city. The celebratory brunch on the rooftop terrace of The Oberoi started with cocktails as guests enjoyed a live saxophone performance that set the tone for the afternoon. On display for guests were timepieces from the exclusive Jubilee collection, which comprises 29 limited-edition watches from the Portugieser, Portofino, Pilot’s Watch and Da Vinci families, as well as the Tribute to Pallweber timepieces.
IWC brand ambassador Sonam Kapoor at the event said: “As we near the end of a fantastic year for IWC, it is my pleasure to be part of the 150th-anniversary celebration in India. As a brand, IWC is an amalgamation of heritage, culture, and innovation, which is symbolic of the new India as well. With its game-changing history and pioneering craftsmanship evident in the limited-edition timepieces created for the Jubilee collection, IWC is very close to my heart. All the pieces are truly collector’s items with beauty, perfection, precision, and great engineering. This is the definition of luxury for me.”
