IWC Exclusive Entrance

    To celebrate the opening of its first California boutique in Beverly Hills, IWC Schaffhausen unveiled a new timepiece, available exclusively at the new store. Only 15 numbered models of the Big Pilot, $15,500, were produced. The timepiece features a mechanical movement with an automatic Pellaton winding system and a seven-day power reserve, a soft iron inner case for protection against magnetic fields, and antireflective sapphire glass. The Beverly Hills location marks the company’s first multilevel boutique, showcasing every style available from the watchmaker. (www.iwc.ch)
