Some of the most famous names in Hollywood turned out to attend an event to support a watch manufacturer recently in Geneva.

The Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie High Jewellery Fair took place in the Swiss city and IWC Schaffhausen held a glamorous Top Gun gala to showcase its designs.

Actors who turned up to add a touch of sparkle to the proceedings included Cate Blanchett, Adriana Lima and Ewan McGregor.

The stars had the chance to browse new watch and jewellery collections from the brand during the afternoon before attending the main event in the evening.

They also had the chance to meet with other famous names, with Lima stating she was particularly excited to speak with Brazilian author Paulo Coelho.

Watches have been predicted to see very high sales this year, with the Swiss Watch Industry Federation forecasting the sector will see another year of increased sales.
