150 Years of the International Watch CompanyThe American watchmaking pioneer, Florentine Ariosto Jones, founded the International Watch Company in Schaffhausen in 1868.
His aim was to combine Swiss craftsmanship with American manufacturing technology, which was very advanced back then, to produce the best pocket watches of his time.
IWC Schaffhausen has played a key role in shaping the quest for engineering excellence coupled with the unique entrepreneurial spirit of its founder.
Even today, its timepieces combine precise engineering with an extraordinary, timeless design.
