It's Time To Accessorise Your Watch
Shop the Santoni capsule collection for IWC at selected boutiques worldwide

IWC really knows how to spoil its collectors. First there were the Santoni-crafted leather straps, and now the Schaffhausen company is offering a specially designed collection of Santoni leather accessories to go with its watches. Needless to say, you’ll find the same exquisite craftsmanship with all these items as you would Santoni’s highly coveted shoes.
With items for both men and women, this capsule collection edited by IWC includes belts, bracelets, card holders, clutch bags and wallets. They’re all made of high quality calf leather and range from staple hues like brown, black and blue to striking trendy tones like orange, red and pink in a total of nine different colours. These come from the same colour palette as what IWC has used since this partnership with Santoni started in 2009.
Many of the items also showcase the fine glazing technique applied by Santoni’s master craftsmen that gives the leather a nuanced finish. Each one is meticulously hand-dyed in Santoni ateliers, developing a unique patina over time.
The collection made its debut in March 2018 at six IWC boutiques around the world: Madison Avenue in New York, Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles, New Bond Street in London, Residenzstrasse in Munich, Nanjing West Road in Shanghai and 1881 Heritage in Hong Kong.
They may not be available in Singapore right now but you can still order your IWC X Santoni leather accessory fairly easily on the Santoni website. Of course, the next time you’re headed to any of the aforementioned cities, feel free to swing by the local IWC boutique.
Even if you’re already well sorted, you could always pick up something for the significant other–we don’t know many who would turn down a handmade Santoni leather good.
