SIHH 2018 – it’s complicated. The watch world’s most important annual show was held in Geneva during January. We were there. Here’s a taste of what’s new – our top nine watches.
#1 – IWC Schaffhausen – Tribute to Pallweber Edition
Mechanical, with digital display
IWC unveiled three limited-edition “IWC Tribute to Pallweber” wristwatches with jumping numerals as part of the Jubilee collection, to celebrate the company’s 150th anniversary.
The company is incorporating a digital hours and minutes display in a wristwatch for the very first time. IWC started using this form of time display in pocket watches back in 1884. The display was a revolutionary development for its time.
A total of 25 watches will be made in platinum, 250 in red gold and 500 in stainless steel.
