In October, a group of Sydney-based collectors gathered for a dinner hosted by IWC to celebrate the recent release of the 2016 Pilot Collection. The dinner was held at The Restaurant Pendolino, which specialises in regionally-inspired Italian cuisine and features some of Australia and Italy’s most prestigious extra-virgin olive oils and food and wine products.

The night began with casual conversation and then an introductory video to the pilot collection –

As the waiters came around to take our orders, we had a look at the the new Pilot collection. Our hosts, Christian and Natalia brought along some fantastic pieces including (but not limited to!) a Top Gun Ceramic and special edition Double Chronograph.

Top Gun Ceramic, featuring the IWC-manufactured 51111 calibre
Double Chronograph Edition “Antoine de Saint Exupery”

Soon after, the food came out and the dishes both looked fantastic and tasted incredible!

We then spent the rest of the night talking watches and checking out the pieces on display.

I would like to thank Christian and Natalia for giving us the pleasure of attending their first Sydney-based collector’s dinner, it was a wonderful night!
