Karolina Kurkova's Adoration For IWC

By Caroline Suganda


Karolina Kurkova needs no introduction. Over an intimate lunch at Siam Kempinski Bangkok, the supermodel spent some quality time with selected media, in conjunction with IWC's Da Vinci exhibition that is happening from now till June 18 at Siam Paragon, Bangkok.

A super easy-going and down-to-earth woman, Kurkova is a very hands-on mother to two sons: Tobin Jack Drury (now seven) and Noah Lee Drury (now two). She tells us her own share of stories, giving 100 percent in everything she does, even if it requires her to juggle time between family and work and brought her second son, Noah, to SIHH, at 2 months' old.

When asked if her eldest son, Tobin, knows what she does, she claims that he heard it from other people although she has never really talked about it at home "I don't know how my son even know my full name, he probably seen it on television. He would say, 'My mom is Karolina Kurkova, she's famous!' " she shares, lowering her voice imitating how Tobin would say it his pure, innocent way.

Having been with the IWC family for five years now, Kurkova says that it is about being selective and consistent in building a relationship with the people and brands she works with. "It's not about doing 10 things at one time," she says "It is about believing and understanding [the brand]."

Here, she shares her first encounter with IWC.
