After the ceremonial ribbon had been cut, IWC CEO Christoph Grainger-Herr greeted the guests by saying: “In addition to Neuhausen and Bogenhausen, Munich now also has Schaffhausen. We are delighted that we have now made a small part of the Bavarian capital our own and filled a significant gap in our network with this extraordinary boutique.”
The grand opening event centred on the new boutique and its very special location in the heart of Munich. It also focused on the watch Portugieser Chronograph Rattrapante Edition “Boutique Munich”.

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. After the welcome speech, the guests had ample opportunity to explore the new boutique and immerse themselves in the world of IWC watches whilst enjoying a cocktail-style reception and attentive service. As well as serving drinks, bartender Rocco Tolomeo performed behind the bar, and the jazz band Monaco Swing Trio entertained guests with live background music.
