IWC Schaffhausen has launched a new special Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Solidarity with Beirut” in partnership with Beirut-based NGO Nusaned.

 

The proceeds of the watch will go towards supporting those affected by the Beirut explosion which devastated the city on 4th August 2020.

 

Available exclusively in Lebanon and the UAE, the watch is a limited edition of 30 pieces. It features a stainless steel case, green dial and a unique back engraving of the cedar tree; the national emblem of Lebanon symbolising eternity and peace.

The proceeds of the watch will be shared directly with Nusaned to assist in its Beirut Emergency Response Plan which is helping to rebuild and support those who lost everything in the blast.

 

The non-governmental organization is working tirelessly to help Beirut recover through its Goods In Need and Roofs That Shield programmes by providing families with immediate aid and rebuilding destroyed homes and shops.

“The global IWC Schaffhausen family stands together with Lebanon during these challenging times, and we truly believe that our contribution to Nusaned helps those in need and accelerates the restoration of the beautiful city of Beirut. With the launch of the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Solidarity with Beirut”, we aim to support the immediate needs of the population in impacted areas. Our hearts are with the people of Lebanon, and we hope that together with the support of the rest of the world, we can stay strong and help rebuild a better future,” said Christoph Grainger-Herr, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen.

 

The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Solidarity with Beirut” will be available exclusively at the IWC boutiques in The Dubai Mall, The Galleria Al Maryah Island in Abu Dhabi and Beirut Souks and will retail at USD 5,780. The timepiece will retail at USD 5,780, with proceeds from the sales of the watch going to Nusaned’s Beirut Emergency Response Plan.
