Team Ace Trade Show Update – SIHH Geneva 2009 – IWC Novelties

Yesterday, Team Ace visited the 19th Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva, Switzerland. Hereby we want to present the snap shots we took of the brand IWC.

FYI: The next SIHH will again be in January.

Ace Jewelers Group was at the SIHH to review at the brands that are in the portfolio of Richemont and the independent brands: Audemars Piguet, Girard Perregaux, Jean Richard, Parmigiani, Roger Dubuis.

IWC  will focus this year on the Aquatimer Family. This means that they are restyling the complete collection and will stop the production of the current collection. The first thing all Cousteau fans want to know: Will there be a fifth Cousteau Limited Edition? The anwser is no! But, do not fear, they have launched a successor to the Deep One… The Deep Two:

Another amazing new patented technology created and developed by IWC, specially designed for divers:

There will not be any titanium versions anymore, but the black & yellow version is still available:

But more interesting is the Manufacture Chronograph:

And our favourite is the complete black (rubber coating) Special Edition – IWC Aquatimer Galapagos Chrono:

Who doesn’t love turtles 😉

The complete Ingenieur colletcion has been cancelled, besides the Big Ingenieur! They added two new versions: a 46mm version with the 8000-calibre and a chronograph. On top of that they have developped a new rubber strap.

The new stainless steel Ingenieur Automatic in 46mm with the infamous 8000-calibre with complete new rubber strap:

The all new IWC Ingenieur Manufacture Chronograph:

In 1985 the legandary Kurt Klaus developpend for IWC the infamous Perpetual Calendar with Chronograph. Last year IWC tributed Kurt Klaus and designed a limited edtition watch in his name. They all sold out rapidly. Good news for those who did not manage to get hold of one. Ace Jewelers ordered the RED gold (5N) version with black dial (1000 pieces). On top of that IWC developed a new and patented movement: This first ever DIGITAL perpetual calendar!

The first ever digital perpetual calendar movement has four digits to display date, month and year in leap-year-cycle:

This magnificent watch will be produced in a rose gold and a limited edition version in platinum:

This is the fourth year that IWC is paying tribute to the legendary St. Ex. Therefore there will be another series of limited edition watches. This year the St. Ex will be a Big Pilot… Another Big hit:

Ace Jewelers will receive several version in stainless steel (22 pieces reserved for Holland) and rose gold (11 reserved for Holland). It is unclear if a white gold version will come to The Netherlands:

It is also the fourth year that IWC supports the Laureus Foundation by creating a limited edition watch. This year the Portuguese Automatic will be blue:
