The money was very well spent, with Boesch today celebrating its 100th anniversary at the top of the industry – and IWC is celebrating along with it. There is an IWC special edition to mark the occasion, the Aquatimer Automatic Edition “Boesch”, which is limited to 100 pieces. “Both Boesch motorboats and IWC watches are handmade luxury objects of unparalleled quality and timeless beauty,” says Linus Fuchs, IWC Managing Director Switzerland. Like IWC, the boat manufacturer is passionately dedicated to design and technology while also being committed to sustainable and responsible manufacturing processes.
An example of this is a service that customers can benefit from for life, so to speak: “We have all components in stock as spare parts going back to year of manufacture 1965,” says Markus Boesch, who heads the family company in the fourth generation. For boats older than that, not everything is still available, but the parts can usually be copied and replaced. An interesting fact is that the boats have been numbered consecutively without any gaps since 1920. They recently reached the number 3,900, with an estimated 3,000 of them still ploughing the waters of our planet.
