An American watchmaking pioneer named Florentine Ariosto Jones founded the International Watch Company (IWC) in Schaffhausen during 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 its heritage for almost 150 years. The company’s mechanical timepieces are handcrafted in workshops with meticulous attention to detail. IWC’s six watch families combine precision engineering with extraordinary and timeless design, bringing the finest technology and unique emotions to your wrist.
