In 1868, Boston watchmaker Florentine Ariosto Jones founded the “International Watch Co.” 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. Committing to this heritage for the past 150 years, IWC’s mechanical timepieces are still handcrafted with meticulous attention to detail.

IWC’s watch families – the Pilot’s Watches, Portugieser, Portofino, Ingenieur, Aquatimer and Da Vinci – 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 the complexities of haute horlogerie at its finest.

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
