Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Shaffhausen is celebrating its partnership with the British Film Institute (BFI) by launching a limited edition timepiece.
The launch coincides with the 60th anniversary of the BFI London Film Festival, which runs from 5 – 16 October this year. IWC has been the Official Time Partner of the event since 2014.
The limited edition watch is called the Pilot’s Watch Spitfire Chronograph Edition ‘BFI London Festival 2016’ and there will be just 60 pieces made, all in stainless steel on an elegant blue strap. Each of the 60 pieces will be numbered on the case back, along with the ‘BFI Film Forever’ inscription.
Under the bonnet, the watch features an IWC in-house 89365-calibre movement alongside a chronograph and flyback function and will be available from July 2016.
