French local time May 13, 2018, Chairman of the 71st Cannes Film Festival Jury and IWC brand ambassador Cate Blanchett wears IWC I Pallweber’s ‘150th Anniversary Pocket Watch’ made a stunning appearance at the Hollywood Foreign Journalists Association (HFPA) event during the film festival. The large-sized pocket watch was chosen to be worn on the chest in a chain, with a neatly tailored pure black suit, so bold and avant-garde, confident and modern to wear, it is indeed ‘Big Devil’ style. This unique pocket watch is a new masterpiece launched by IWC on the occasion of the brand’s 150th anniversary. It pays tribute to the first digital time-lapse Pallweber pocket watch, limited to 50 pieces worldwide. 18K red gold bracelet, white lacquered dial, small blue seconds, 18K red gold case with beautifully hand-engraved patterns. The digital display window is marked with ‘Hours’ and ‘Minute’. There are two windows on the hairspring cover, which can be read at a glance, just like Kate’s interpretation.
