FINE ENGINEERING FROM SCHAFFHAUSEN

FINE ENGINEERING FROM SCHAFFHAUSEN

WELCOME TO IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN

 

More than 150 years ago, the American watchmaker and engineer Florentine Ariosto Jones travelled from Boston to Schaffhausen. On the banks of the Rhine, he realized his bold vision of an industrialized, centralized watch production – powered directly by the river’s current.

 

The perpetual energy of the water, the source of all life, not only made our founder’s dream come true. It has also inspired us and fundamentally shaped the way we make our watches. We manufacture products that are built to last for eternity – responsible in our way of treating our planet and its resources, and respectful of the people who wear our timepieces with joy.

 

Our watches are built to last – a long-term approach that is reflected through our manufacture movements, our robust and reliable chronographs, our mechanically programmed calendars, or the advanced materials we use. What eternity is to function, timelessness is to design. A mechanical watch from IWC Schaffhausen can be handed down through generations. Our functional approach to design, characterized by purity and symmetry, ensures that our products will remain beautiful and culturally relevant.

 

This unique mindset is expressed through our promise of “Engineering beyond time.” Timeless Design. Engineered to last. And made with the utmost respect for people and planet.

THE FAMILY TRADITION AT IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN

THE FAMILY TRADITION AT IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN

IWC’s watch families – the Pilot’s Watches, Portugieser, Ingenieur, Aquatimer and Portofino – look back on a long tradition. They attest to the innovation of the engineers in Schaffhausen through four generations and embrace the broad range of the company’s watchmaking expertise: from robust watches for everyday use to professional sports watches and the complexities of haute horlogerie at its finest. These are joined by watch specialities such as the Grande Complication and the IWC Vintage Collection.

AMERICAN PIONEERING SPIRIT MEETS SWISS TRADITION

AMERICAN PIONEERING SPIRIT MEETS SWISS TRADITION

In 1868, Boston watchmaker Florentine Ariosto Jones founded the “International Watch Co.” in Schaffhausen, far from the watchmaking centres of French-speaking Switzerland. His plan was to combine advanced American production technologies with the skilled craftsmanship for which Swiss watchmakers were famous. In Schaffhausen, he found ideal conditions: modern factory premises, a hydropower plant driven by the Rhine to run the machines and, equally important, a centuries-old horological tradition. The company’s reputation was established from the start with its first movement, the eponymous Jones calibre. In 1885, IWC demonstrated its innovative spirit in the Pallweber pocket watches, with their revolutionary digital display for hours and minutes. The end of the 19th century saw the appearance of IWC’s first wristwatches featuring the 64-calibre pocket watch movement.

EXPANSION ON THE BANKS OF THE RHINE

EXPANSION ON THE BANKS OF THE RHINE

F.A. Jones rented his first factory premises in the Moser Industrial Complex. Soon afterwards, the company leased additional space in the Oberhaus, one of Schaffhausen’s oldest buildings. In 1874/75, a new IWC factory – and the company’s headquarters to this day – was built at the Baumgarten, directly adjacent to the banks of the Rhine. Headquarters were expanded in 2005 and 2008 with the addition of the East and West Wings.
