Kurt Klaus: I keep telling people how great the quality of life is here in Schaffhausen. I never want to live anywhere else. I enjoy the beautiful scenery, I walk the dog over fields, through the forest and across meadows. And I always thoroughly enjoy it. Even when it rains, it’s still beautiful.
Amaro Abad: And you should not forget that because of our watches, Schaffhausen is known all over the world, because on our watch dials right below the logo of IWC it still says “Schaffhausen”. Which means that even in China or in North America people know that Schaffhausen is a city.
Kurt Klaus: Well, I can tell a little funny story about that. Years ago, I spoke with someone abroad and told him that I work for IWC. He asked “IWC? What is that?” “Well, IWC Schaffhausen.” [I said]. “Oh yes, that’s right!” [he said]. For a long time, the addition “Schaffhausen” was more important than “IWC” itself.
