After opening its first boutique in Canada in Toronto earlier this year, IWC Schaffhausen has now opened a second Canadian boutique store in Vancouver.

In business since the 1868, the Swiss luxury watchmaker’s new Vancouver store can be found at 1071 Alberni Street.

“We strive to provide the best customer service possible,” Edouard d’Arbaumont, IWC Brand President for North America, said in a release.

By opening a second boutique in Canada, he added, “more watch lovers will have the opportunity to discover our high-quality mechanical timepieces hands-on.”

Like the boutique in Toronto, the one in Vancouver also features IWC’s new boutique concept, which uses a combination of materials such as natural stone, dark wood and glass surfaces.

The boutique offers products from IWC’s product line, including Pilot’s Watches, Portugieser, Portofino, Aquatimer, Ingenieur, and Da Vinci.

In addition, the Vancouver and Toronto store are the only two points of sale where the Portugieser Chronograph Rattrapante Edition is available for purchase. There are only 150 pieces of this edition, which commemorates the 150th anniversary of Canadian Federation this year.
