Philippine Influencers And Celebrities Celebrate IWC Schaffhausen’s 150th Anniversary
Not a lot of brands can boast 150 years of operation, much less a brand that upholds a legacy of innovation and luxury. But Swiss watch manufacturer IWC Shaffhausen did just that earlier this month, and they celebrated with multiple A-list soirees around the globe.

From Singapore to Malaysia, Thailand and Philippines, IWC has pulled some celebratory stops to commemorate their monumental anniversary in South East Asia. In the Philippines, IWC and retail partner, Lucerne, took over the lavishly Italian restaurant Salvatore Cuomo for a night of vibrant guests, invigorating cocktails (IWC-inspired brews designed by Erwan Heussaff, no less!) and a good company of loyal clientele. Hosted by Filipino-Iranian style icon, and Metro Channel host, Joey Mead King, the party also unveiled IWC’s special Jubilee collection, and marked IWC’s long-standing partnership with leading Manila-based watch retailer Lucerne.
