Swiss luxury watch maker, IWC Schaffhausen, has launched its Ingenieur Automatic Special Edition. In a tie-up with Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, the sale of the pieces—which sport a drawing by a Ugandan girl—will help children in crisis-hit areas. Another new feature, the IWC Connect—an embedded intelligent tool that gives its user control over devices connected to the Internet of Things. Rs 4.54 lakhs. Details: iwc.com
From the heart
Hand-painted by homemakers from across the country, these silk handbags will make a great Mother’s Day gift. Retailed by RangRage, an online retailer for handpainted products, the spacious bags come in vibrant colours, with mostly geometric patterns. We’ve got our eye on the one with the Buddha print on it.
Rs 3,599. Details: RangRage.in
