Photos: the new IWC Pilot’s Watches take flight in Bangkok

The dream of flying has landed in Thailand.

Swiss watchmaker IWC Schaffhausen hosted an exclusive party at Bangkok’s hottest speakeasy this month, debuting the new IWC Pilot’s Watches for famous friends and fans of the brand to admire.

Taking place atop the shiny new Rosewood hotel at Lennon’s, the event saw a host of celebrity guests – including Film Thanapat, Bee Namthip, Be Eknaree Wachirabunjong, and Sun Assakul – celebrating the grand arrival of the timepieces in Thailand.

Tucked away behind the whiskey library, the watches were presented in a special fashion show at the hotel, following their initial unveil at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva earlier this year. The new collection features three distinct sub-lines: the originally engineered Spitfire, the innovative Top Gun, and literary-inspired Le Petit Prince.

To complement the new timepieces and highlight IWC’s long ties to the world of aviation, guests were treated to four artisanal cocktails inspired by the past and present icons of the brand. Between vintage gentlemen’s club vibes, and a strong sense of story, scroll ahead for an exclusive sneak peek into the event.
