IWC orchestra celebrates Swiss National Day


IWC watchmakers have formed a miniature orchestra for the national holiday

Peter Simpson ,

To celebrate Swiss National Day on 1 August, the watchmakers at IWC Schaffhausen have put on a miniature orchestral performance.

Led by IWC ambassador and master watchmaker Kurt Klaus, the highly skilled team of craftsmen briefly downed tools to engage in a rousing rendition of the Swiss national anthem.

The watchmakers/musicians crafted the intricately designed instruments with watchmaking tools and put months of practice to good use to mark the national holiday in a truly unique way.
