IWC and PUBLIC SCHOOL

The relationship between IWC Schaffhausen and PUBLIC SCHOOL began in 2013 and sprung from a love of finely made timepieces.

The Man’s Guide to
Haute Horlogerie

The development and continuous improvement of movements, functional displays and cases has been part of IWC’s philosophy since 1868. Complications such as the perpetual calendar, constant-force tourbillon and minute repeater are not only historically significant achievements in the art of watchmaking but also the fruit of the company’s in-house design and development efforts. With the video series “The Man’s Guide to Haute Horlogerie”, which consists of 7 episodes dedicated to iconic complications, IWC gives you an insight into the world of Haute Horlogerie made in Schaffhausen.

Have you ever wondered what the extra dials inside a watch face are? In many cases, these aren‘t merely decorative – they are complications or special technical features which enhance the marvel of a mechanical watch.

This IWC video is the second in a series called “The Man’s Guide to Buying a Watch”. Over the course of the next few weeks we will feature IWC watches, people at the manufacture in Schaffhausen and well known bloggers in the field of fine watch making to give you a behind-the-scenes look at our watches and some of the complications that form the IWC collection.

IWC’s mechanical watches are works of art, they are style statements, and they are technical marvels. Featuring Benjamin Clymer, Editor in Chief of Hodinkee Blog, this video explores the most important complications of our IWC timepieces.
