For the second year, IWC Schaffhausen is supporting the BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express as Official Time Partner. Now, to celebrate its partnership with the BFI, IWC Schaffhausen is launching a limited edition timepiece: The Portugieser Hand-Wound Eight Days Edition ‘BFI London Film Festival 2015’, limited to 59 timepieces in stainless steel.
Each model will be individually numbered on the case-back, alongside the inscription ‘BFI Film Forever 2015’. The timepieces will be available from September at the IWC Boutique on New Bond Street and The Watch Gallery as the brand’s exclusive retail partner for the launch.
The brand is also creating a bespoke IWC timepiece in platinum, to be auctioned at the BFI’s unique fundraising gala LUMINOUS, of which IWC is headline sponsor.
All proceeds from the auction will go towards the BFI National Archive, one of the greatest and most significant heritage collections in the world and the UK’s national collection of film and TV.
59th BFI London Film Festival will run from 7 to 18 October 2015.
