IWC Schaffhausen

IWC's heritage is firmly anchored in the spirit of American innovation and entrepreneurship. Founded in 1868 by Florentine Ariosto Jones, a Boston-based watchmaker, the International Watch Company (IWC) emerged as a testament to ingenuity. Jones collaborated with highly skilled Swiss watchmakers, harnessed modern technology, and utilized hydropower from the nearby River Rhine to craft pocket watch movements of unparalleled quality.

A notable milestone for IWC occurred in 1967 when it became one of the pioneering watchmakers to introduce references with blue dials. This design innovation has since become a hallmark of the brand, with IWC incorporating blue dials in over 120 references spanning its six watch families.

IWC is renowned for its fusion of pilot’s chronographs and sophisticated dress watches. The brand's pilot’s watches, exemplified by the iconic Big Pilot’s Watch, pay homage to its aviation heritage, celebrated for their clear visibility and practical features. Conversely, IWC’s dress watches, including the Portuguese and the Portofino, radiate elegance and sophistication, often incorporating complications and artistically designed dials.

Today, IWC continues to design watches that harmonize functionality with style. The brand's commitment to craftsmanship, innovation, and the relentless pursuit of technical excellence is apparent in every timepiece it creates.
