Leosweeneypod Wrote:Hi Slashdot,I don't know the answer to your question in respect to IWC but this may help..Historically in the Swiss watchmaking industry the manufacture of dials along with hands, crystals and straps has been outsourced to companies specialising in these products with the watch companies concentrating on the manufacture of the movements/cases and finished products. These days, with the consolidation of the industry, most high-end watch companies either own themselves or are part of a group that owns several manufacturers of these diverse components. They are usually still run as separate entities and not under the watch brand name.Leo
