The International Watch Company Schaffhausen has been producing valuable timepieces since 1868. This Swiss brand has built up a strong international reputation for its innovative solutions and technical ingenuity and its Haute Horlogerie masterpieces are known for their world-class engineering and precision and their exclusive design.
American pioneering spirit meets Swiss savoir-faire
The Boston watchmaker Florentine Ariosto Jones founded the "International Watch Company" in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, in 1868. He wanted to combine advanced American production techniques with the craftsmanship for which Swiss watchmakers have always been renowned. The name IWC Schaffhausen soon became known to watch lovers and connoisseurs all over the world. For 150 years now, the first-class mechanical timepieces have been manufactured with exquisite detail by masters of the trade. Precise engineering and traditional watchmaking go hand in hand and each IWC Schaffhausen watch can be recognized by its stylish yet completely timeless design.
The complete repertoire of Haute Horlogerie
Today, IWC Schaffhausen has six lines of watches: Aviator, Portugieser, Ingenieur, Aquatimer, Da Vinci, and Portofino. Each one draws on a long tradition and has its own story to tell. They epitomize the innovative power that has distinguished Schaffhausen engineers for four generations and demonstrate a wide range of manufacturing expertise. From functional watches for every day to professional sports watches to Haute Horlogerie watches in all their complexity – IWC Schaffhausen does it all. Perpetual calendars, minute repeaters, and tourbillons are all part of the company's repertoire and all prove the brand’s long-held philosophy that a timepiece from IWC Schaffhausen not only measures time but enriches life too.
