An American watchmaking pioneer, Florentine Ariosto Jones founded the International Watch Company in Schaffhausen in 1868. He drew on the help of eminently qualified Swiss watchmakers, modern technology and hydropower sourced from the nearby River Rhine to manufacture watch movements of the highest possible quality.
We feel strongly committed to this heritage for almost 150 years. Our mechanical timepieces are handcrafted in our workshops with meticulous attention to detail. Our six watch families combine precision engineering with extraordinary and timeless design – bringing finest technology and unique emotions to your wrist.
I hope you will enjoy your journey through the universe of IWC.
—Christoph Grainger-Herr, CEO IWC Schaffhausen
