Swiss luxury watch maker IWC Schaffhausen celebrated the opening of its boutique at Residenzstraße 13, Munich, on 28 June 2017. After a one-year construction phase of meticulously executed renovations, the historic building in the heart of Munich’s city centre is now shining like new. Inside, it features a modern boutique concept spanning two floors and a total area of around 226 square metres.
With its soft beige hues and dark wooden accents, the IWC boutique furnishing scheme features a bar, a corner fireplace and a seating area, creating a relaxed atmosphere that invites visitors to bask in the stylish surroundings. To mark this special occasion the Swiss watch maker has created the Portugieser Chronograph Rattrapante Edition “Boutique Munich” timepiece.
This special edition, which the Swiss watchmaking company launched exclusively to mark the boutique’s opening, is engraved with Munich’s Frauenkirche church on the back of its case. Its blue dial and red hands inspired the blue and red colour scheme used for the evening event. Limited to 250 watches, this exclusive timepiece will initially only be available for purchase at the Munich boutique.
