IWC Schaffhausen dévoile sa nouvelle Flagship Boutique, ajoutant ainsi une nouvelle étoile au ciel de Pékin

PÉKIN, November 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

IWC Schaffhausen a fêté hier l'ouverture de sa nouvelle Flagship Boutique à Pékin, en Chine. Les amis de la marque et des invités sélectionnés se tenaient parmi les personnes présentes à la spectaculaire cérémonie d'inauguration qui s'est déroulée dans le centre commercial de Parkview Green, suivie de la première présentation de la Portuguese Sidérale Scafusia d'IWC dédiée à Pékin, au cours d'une soirée mémorable.

« Notre nouvelle Flagship Boutique, désormais la deuxième en Asie, élève le patrimoine horloger d'IWC à un nouveau niveau », a expliqué Georges Kern, PDG d'IWC. « Nous sommes fiers de célébrer cette occasion en compagnie de nos invités de marque et de rendre hommage à l'importance du marché chinois avec une montre exclusive ». Parkview Green, un nouveau centre commercial situé en plein cœur du quartier des affaires de Pékin, établit de nouveaux standards, sur le fond comme sur la forme, avec l'utilisation de technologies environnementales novatrices permettant, entre autres réalisations, la création d'un microclimat indifférent de l'influence du climat saisonnier extrême de Pékin. La société IWC a invité 200 personnes à la rejoindre à Parkview Green lors de l'événement que représentait l'inauguration de la boutique. À cette occasion, les invités s'étaient rassemblés sur le pont en face de la Flagship Boutique entièrement drapée, afin d'en apprendre davantage sur les principales étapes ayant jalonné les innovations d'IWC tout au long d'une exposition mettant en vedette dix montres des années 1874 à 2000.

UNE INAUGURATION SPECTACULAIRE EN COMPAGNIE DES AMIS DE LA MARQUE

À l'issue de la réception donnée sur le pont, les amis de la marque, parmi lesquels l'actrice Tang Wei, le médaillé d'or olympique Chen Yibing, l'acteur Su You Peng, l'actrice Zhu Zhu, le réalisateur Wang Xiaoshuai et l'artiste Wang Luyan, ont uni leurs forces à celles de Georges Kern, de Benoit de Clerck, Directeur général d'IWC en Asie-Pacifique, et de Dennis Lee, Directeur général d'IWC en Chine, pour dévoiler le joyau architectural. « La première Flagship Boutique d'IWC en Chine continentale est non seulement importante pour la région, mais ajoute également un nouveau jalon à l'histoire de l'entreprise », a expliqué Georges Kern. Cette dimension est devenue encore plus évidente après la chute des rideaux et la découverte de l'intérieur de la Flagship Boutique par les invités.

UNE ARCHITECTURE DURABLE RENCONTRE UNE CONCEPTION INNOVANTE

L'architecture de la troisième Flagship Boutique d'IWC est tout aussi exceptionnelle que son environnement. Ce cube de verre d'environ 300 mètres carrés répartis sur deux niveaux arbore une façade qui attire irrésistiblement le regard. Idée originale des créateurs internes et des architectes, l'intérieur unique reflète l'ambiance luxueuse de la collection IWC. Parée de somptueuses boiseries sombres et de matériaux nobles, la Flagship Boutique exhale une atmosphère élégante qui invite les clients à découvrir les six familles de montres fascinantes. Elle présente également des modèles en exclusivité, ainsi que la collection IWC uniquement disponible dans les boutiques phares et composée d'articles et d'accessoires innovants triés sur le volet, qui se révèlent aussi séduisants et surprenants que les montres elles-mêmes.

UNE NOUVELLE ÉTOILE EST NÉE

En plus de son environnement unique, la Flagship Boutique d'IWC à Pékin est la deuxième du genre en Asie. Elle bénéficie d'une première mondiale qui ne séduira pas que les amateurs de haute horlogerie : une salle dédiée à la Portuguese Sidérale Scafusia, une étoile de l'histoire d'IWC. Le summum des compétences en mécanique et en ingénierie dans l'art de l'horlogerie astronomique associe aujourd'hui plus de 500 composants, depuis la technologie brevetée de force d'échappement tourbillonnante constante jusqu'au rouage, pour aboutir à l'affichage de l'heure solaire et sidérale, du crépuscule, du lever et du coucher du soleil, ainsi qu'à la vue en constante évolution des étoiles et des constellations visibles depuis le propre point de vue du client. Pour marquer cette occasion spéciale, IWC a créé une Portuguese Sidérale Scafusia munie d'une carte céleste affichée au dos du boîtier et présentant la vue offerte depuis la Cité Interdite. La nouvelle Flagship Boutique hébergera ce chef-d'œuvre qui reflète les principes fondateurs d'IWC : créer des montres innovantes basées sur des technologies en avance sur leur époque, tout en respectant constamment le développement durable et le patrimoine. Cette combinaison de tradition et d'innovation profondément ancrée dans l'horlogerie aux multiples facettes d'IWC a maintenant trouvé une nouvelle demeure à sa mesure, au sein de l'une des plus anciennes capitales du monde.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
The security needs of IoT environments require a strong, proven approach to maintain security, trust and privacy in their ecosystem. Assurance and protection of device identity, secure data encryption and authentication are the key security challenges organizations are trying to address when integrating IoT devices. This holds true for IoT applications in a wide range of industries, for example, healthcare, consumer devices, and manufacturing. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lancen LaChance, vic...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
You think you know what’s in your data. But do you? Most organizations are now aware of the business intelligence represented by their data. Data science stands to take this to a level you never thought of – literally. The techniques of data science, when used with the capabilities of Big Data technologies, can make connections you had not yet imagined, helping you discover new insights and ask new questions of your data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sarbjit Sarkaria, data science team lead ...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
WebRTC is bringing significant change to the communications landscape that will bridge the worlds of web and telephony, making the Internet the new standard for communications. Cloud9 took the road less traveled and used WebRTC to create a downloadable enterprise-grade communications platform that is changing the communication dynamic in the financial sector. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Leo Papadopoulos, CTO of Cloud9, discussed the importance of WebRTC and how it enables companies to focus o...
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

In the next five to ten years, millions, if not billions of things will become smarter. This smartness goes beyond connected things in our homes like the fridge, thermostat and fancy lighting, and into heavily regulated industries including aerospace, pharmaceutical/medical devices and energy. “Smartness” will embed itself within individual products that are part of our daily lives. We will engage with smart products - learning from them, informing them, and communicating with them. Smart produc...
