Following the glamourous IWC Schaffhausen Dinner, in honour of the BFI and inspired by the brand’s innovative vision, I had the privilege to match two exclusive IWC timepieces from The Watch Gallery with my outfits.

I opted for the Pilot Mark XVIII Edition Le Petit Prince, which made my afternoon stroll in sunny London in my blue check suit even more striking. I can’t get enough of its minimal, yet classic design, its polished stainless steel case and off course the iconic midnight blue dial; mandatory for a true gentleman.

For an extra sporty and sartorially spot-on look, I chose the IWC Portofino Chronograph. Its striking push-buttons, reminiscent of the cockpit of 1960s Italian sports cars, the black minimal dial and the Milanese mesh stainless steel bracelet, complemented my favourite leather bomber jacket on that busy work day.

The Watch Gallery is originally known amongst collectors as a world leading watch boutique destination and is the number one independent watch retailer in the UK. And now, it’s also the first official authorised IWC online store in the country!

Time is precious, especially if you are a watch fetishist, like me! So, visit The Watch Gallery website and invest in an IWC peerless timepiece; an absolute must for your collection. All IWC featured watches in addition to all exclusive collections are available to buy online at The Watch Gallery
