The IWC Racing Team has recently made its official Swiss debut at the 14th Arosa ClassicCar which saw former Formula One driver Karl Wendlinger drove the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL “Gullwing” on the winding 7.3 kilometre hill-climb route from Langwies to Arosa, finishing in seventh place. In 1999, motoring journalists named the 300 SL the Sports Car of the Century, and is instantly recognizable thanks to its gull-wing doors, which resemble the wings of a seagull.

Wendlinger is an ambassador for Mercedes-AMG, a company with which IWC shares a long-standing successful partnership. The Austrian was part of the Sauber-Mercedes team that won the 1991 World Sports Car Championship and later, became a star in the newly formed Sauber Formula One team. 

The Arosa ClassicCar, dubbed “the little Monaco of the Alps”, has attracted fans of historic motor-sport from across the world since the first edition in 2005. It attracts around 25,000 spectators each year where the races are held along the twisting hill-climb route, which covers a distance of 7.3 kilometres and 422 vertical metres as it winds its way from from Langwies to Arosa. It is also the only course in Switzerland that has a 1.2 kilometre downhill stretch.

沙夫豪森 IWC 万国表车队最近在第 14 届阿罗萨经典古董车赛上正式亮相,前一级方程式赛车手 Karl Wendlinger 驾驶的梅赛德斯-奔驰(Mercedes-Benz300 SLGullwing”在蜿蜒 7.3 公里的爬坡路线上从兰维斯(Langwies)开到阿罗萨(Arosa),最终名列第七。1999 年,汽车记者将 300 SL 命名为世纪跑车,因为其形似海鸥翅膀的鸥翼门设计,一眼就能辨认出。

Wendlinger 是梅赛德斯 – AMG 公司的大使,该公司与 IWC 有着长期的成功合作关系。这位奥地利人是索伯(Sauber)-梅赛德斯车队的一员,该车队曾在 1991 年赢得世界跑车冠军,后来成为新成立的索伯一级方程式车队的明星。

而被称为“阿尔卑斯山小摩纳哥”的阿罗萨经典古董车赛,自 2005 年第一年举办,就吸引了来自世界各地的经典车竞赛爱好者。每年约有 2.5 万名观众前来参与,比赛沿着蜿蜒的爬坡路线进行,从兰维斯延伸到阿罗萨,全程 7.3 公里,垂直高度 422 米。这也是瑞士唯一有 1.2 公里下坡的赛道。

Known for her beauty, passion and incredible on-screen success, OMEGA brand ambassador Nicole Kidman was the perfect candidate to officially open OMEGA’s celebratory exhibition in St. Petersburg entitled “Her Time”.

欧米茄(OMEGA)品牌大使 Nicole Kidman 以美貌与激情,还有在电影银幕表演缔造的巨大成就而闻名,当然也是欧米茄在俄罗斯圣彼得堡举办的“她的时光”庆典展览的最佳代表人选。

omega_63.jpgOMEGA’s well-travelled showcase of women’s watchmaking was launched with signature OMEGA style at a special cocktail party and dinner attended by international guests and media, as well as Oscar-winner and OMEGA ambassador Nicole Kidman. OMEGA’s “Her Time” displays OMEGA’s evolution of women’s timepieces and changing styles, from early Lèpine pendants and the iconic Ladymatic, through to “secret jewellery watches” and today’s latest creations.

The granite and marble of St. Petersburg’s famous neoclassical palace provided a stark and striking backdrop to OMEGA’s quintessentially feminine timepieces, and brought a real sense of drama to the display. OMEGA’s journey with women has been a synchronised story of time and fashion. No matter the decade, the brand has always kept step with society’s many changing attitudes and styles.

而欧米茄女性腕表百年臻品展览也显示品牌对于世代杰出女性的赞礼。预览会的鸡尾酒会和晚宴的出席者除了国际宾客和媒体,奥斯卡奖得主、品牌大使 Nicole Kidman 亮相其中。“她的时光”展示了欧米茄对于每个时代女性形象特质的变迁和创新风格,从早期华丽的 Lepine 吊坠怀表到标志性的 Ladymatic,还有“隐秘珠宝腕表”到如今的全新创作。

至于圣彼得堡新古典主义宫殿的花岗岩大理石装潢为欧米茄的典雅精致提供鲜明的背景,并呈现真实戏剧感。欧米茄与女性的旅程是关于时光和时尚的美丽同步,无论历经多少世代,品牌始终保持与社会结构变化的态度格调步伐一致。
