Welcome

The following pages showcase just a small number of the world’s

most renowned watch brands who have elected to advertise

in our media over the past few months, reaching millions of

passengers who read our inflight magazines every day.

The audiences we reach travel through the airport's duty free

both to and from their destination of choice. It’s during this time

that they are able to browse the retail outlets at the airports,

and indulge in a little retail therapy.

In a world where time is a premium, our inflight magazines

offer a welcome distraction and present a gateway to deliver

innovative ideas and messages that inform and inspire a captive

audience at 35,000ft. There is no other medium that presents

such an opportunity. Hence, watches and accessories represent

one of the most active groups of advertisers across our entire

global portfolio.

The 2012 Watch Lookbook

Every day we connect with millions of passengers, all actively

spending money, travelling on leisure and business, and all aware

of the advertising seen in the pages of their inflight magazine. In

such an environment, inflight magazine readers are in a “mindset

for aspiration”, offering high-end watch brands the perfect,

quality media environment, with 70% of our readers “seeing”

watch advertising in our magazines.

We look forward to continuing to work with these and

many more of the world’s most luxurious brands, showcasing

the very best in this highly competitive sector to our growing

global audience.

Engineered for men

with a 39,000 mile journey home.

Portuguese Yacht Club Chronograph Edition “Volvo Ocean Race 2011–2012”. Ref. 3902: Sailing all the way round the world. Every

three years, something many amateur sailors dream of becomes a gruelling challenge for a small group of hardened professionals and their

equipment. Over a course of more than 39,000 miles, the Volvo Ocean Race separates the men from the boys. And, of course, those on board

cannot simply wear just any watch. The new Portuguese Yacht Club Chronograph Edition “Volvo Ocean Race 2011–2012” has all the precision

of a nautical instrument in its genes. Powered by the rugged IWC-manufactured 89361-calibre movement and water-resistant to 6 bar, the watch

displays its competitive credentials with a fl yback function and an ancillary bezel with quarter-second calibration for measuring short periods of

time. It is the only Portuguese model with protective shoulders for the crown as well as luminescent hands and indices. After all, when you are

exposed to the elements in the South Pacifi c, with waves of up to 30 metres in height, you begin to appreciate instruments you can rely upon.

And, as we are all well aware, the world’s oceans will always do whatever they please. IWC. Engineered for men.

190 YEARS AGO

A MAN BET ON HORSES AND CHANGED

essence of his invention, the rotating disc technique. Monopusher chronograph,

manual-winding manufacture movement. 18K white-gold case. 30 min.

and 60 sec. rotating disc counters. Limited edition of 90 pieces. Crafted in the Montblanc

Manufacture in Le Locle, Switzerland.

Icon series

With its new range of watches,

the Icon series, JACOB JENSEN

builds upon the award-winning

style that has inspired designers

all over the world for more than

50 years. The legendary studio’s

clean lines, sharp edges and

black-and-silver contrasts are

signatures of the Icon Series,

which draws on decades of

prize-winning design experience,

whilst at the same time

pointing into the future.

As always, the choice of materials

is central to JACOB JENSEN.

The choice for this series fell on

the contrasts between polished

and matt steel, a leather strap

with inlaid rubber, and a sapphire

crystal lens. The dominant

design feature is the harmonious

and smooth transition from

the watch case to the strap,

and the characteristic cross that

features on the dial, the crown

and the clasp.

The movement is Swiss, and the

Icon Series radiates a quiet,

discreet beauty that makes the

watches ideal for everyday use,

but also a good match with

formal wear.
