In 1868, Boston watchmaker Florentine Ariosto Jones founded the “International Watch Company” in Schaffhausen. He drew on the help of eminently qualified Swiss watchmakers, modern technology from America and hydropower sourced from the nearby River Rhine to manufacture watch movements of the highest possible quality.
IWC’s watch families – the Pilot’s Watches, Portugieser, Portofino, Ingenieur, Aquatimer and Da Vinci – look back on a long tradition and attest to the innovation of the engineers in Schaffhausen. They embrace the broad range of the company’s watchmaking expertise: from robust watches for everyday use to the complexities of haute horlogerie at its finest.
IWC has complete confidence in the quality of their products and is proud to introduce My IWC, the new customer care platform, and a 6-year extension to the original 2-year International Limited Warranty with every new timepiece purchase.
Our six watch families combine precision engineering with extraordinary and timeless design, bringing the finest technology and unique emotions to your wrist. – Christoph Grainger-Herr, CEO IWC Schaffhausen.
