An American watchmaking pioneer named Florentine Ariosto Jones founded the International Watch Company in Schaffhausen in 1868. He drew on the help of eminently qualified Swiss watchmakers, modern technology and hydropower sourced from the nearby River Rhine to manufacture watch movements of the highest possible quality.
IWC have been committed to their tradition of excellence for more than 150 years. Their mechanical timepieces are handcrafted in their workshops with meticulous attention to detail. IWC’s six watch families combine precision engineering with extraordinary and timeless design and ethically sourced materials, bringing the finest technology and unparalleled elegance to your wrist.
THE FAMILY TRADITION AT IWC
IWC’s watch families – the Pilot’s Watches, Portugieser, Ingenieur, Aquatimer, Da Vinci and Portofino – look back on a long tradition. They attest to the innovation of the engineers in Schaffhausen through four generations and embrace the broad range of the company’s watchmaking expertise: from robust watches for everyday use to professional sports watches and the complexities of haute horlogerie at its finest. These are joined by watch specialities such as the Grande Complication and the IWC Vintage Collection.
MAKING A SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT, RESPONSIBLY
IWC Schaffhausen combine precision engineering with exclusive design to produce finely crafted watches that will last for generations. IWC’s products are inherently sustainable, and they take care to make their watches responsibly.
