NEW: IWC The Big Pilot Exhibition

Your chance to see over 30 historical IWC Big Pilot’s watches.

IWC Big Pilot's Watch 43

Although the pandemic has largely limited our options for leisure travel, there are still plenty of things to do here in town and IWC fans certainly have much to rejoice about. The Big Pilot Exhibition opens its doors this Thursday at Design Orchard from noon to 9pm on weekdays and 11am to 9pm on weekends.


Introduced in 2002, the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch was a game changer at a generous 46mm with an iconic conical crown. And with 2021 marking the year of the Big Pilot’s Watch, the exhibition will feature pieces from the current collection, as well as over 30 vintage and historical Big Pilot watches direct from the IWC Museum in Schaffhausen. Fun fact: It’s the first time so many Big Pilot watches have been flown out of the museum for an exhibition.

Along with the timepieces, visitors can also head to a specially created ‘Talent Wall’ where global friends of the brand appear in videos to share how they achieved their goals, accompanied by their IWC Big Pilot timepieces. Hear from accomplished personalities like local sneaker designer Mark Ong, who is also IWC’s local friend of the brand and exclusive Creator Ambassador, as well as Matt Jones, a world record breaker and IWC Longest Flight pilot, amongst others.

IWC Managing Director for Southeast Asia and Oceania, Florian Gutsmiedl says, “We are excited to be at Design Orchard and let our guests experience the Big Pilot’s story in such a unique environment. We’d also love to see how the new Big Pilot’s Watch 43 will look on the wrists of our guests.”

With that clear invitation to experience the new collection for yourself, be sure to pay a visit when the exhibition opens. Admission is free but appointments are recommended because of venue capacity restrictions.

Like most people these days, Melissa tells the time with her phone. She considers serious timepieces works of art and thinks the perpetual calendar is the handiest complication to date (pun not intended). She's also a Grammar Nazi but promises not to judge if you can't tell the difference between "guilloche" and "guillotine".
