IWC Cocktail Party

Last Thursday Rene and I went along to the cocktail party for the launch of the new IWC Da Vinci watches. It was a fabulous night. It was held in the marquee where the current exhibition of Leonardo Da Vinci is being held at Fox Studios. The exhibition is of models made in Florence using Da Vinci's notes, drawings and ideas. Amazing workmanship in the models which are mostly made of wood.

As for the watches....they were beautiful. Here is a link to IWC https://www.iwc.com/index-en.asp and about the Da Vinci watches here....
We met some friends there who also had invitations..Helena, Mark, Shaun, Julian and Christina, Teng and Robyn, Chris and more. We also had the pleasure of having a chat with 5 time World 500cc Motorcycle Champion Mick Doohan who we found out is the Australian brand ambassador for IWC. Great talking to him and being able to not only get an autograph but also a photo.

We had a great night despite the cold(only one heater unfortunately). Great canapes and lovely Moet. The real highlight of the evening was being able to hold and admire the new Da Vinci watches.

That is all for this time nice and short. Ciao for now!
