The Swiss high-end watch manufacturer International Watch Company or IWC was founded in 1868 by the American Florentine Ariosto Jones. To create timeless and advance watches his plan was to combine the innovative American production technique with the skilled Swiss craftsmanship. The ideal location was found in German-speaking part of Switzerland, in the city of Schaffhausen with its highly industrialized factory premises and ultra modern hydropower plant.
From then on IWC produced watches with exclusive designs and innovative movements.
IWC is at this moment one the world’s leading premium brand in the high-end watch segment. Its watch collection is highly sought among watch connoisseurs, like the watches in Pilot’s watch series, the classic IWC Portugieser line, or the innovative modern IWC Ingenieur line.
The heart of every IWC watch engineer is best captured by IWC’s motto: Probus Scafusia or “Craftsmanship made in Schaffhausen”. IWC will keeps on challenging itself to make with passion masterpieces of the haute horlogerie.
