THE STORYIn 1868, the American watchmaker and entrepreneur Florentine Ariosto Jones left Boston for Switzerland
and founds the "International Watch Company" in Schaffhausen. His visionary dream is to combine
modern American manufacturing technologies with the artisanal skills of Swiss watchmakers for
making the best pocket timepieces of the time. In this way, he not only lays the foundation for the approach
unique engineering of IWC, but also initiates the centralized production of mechanical watches in Switzerland.
In its 150-year history, IWC Schaffhausen has distinguished itself by being able to create complications
functional, ingenious, robust and easy to use; in particular chronographs and calendars. Pioneer in the use of
titanium and ceramic, IWC specializes in the production of technological cases made with
cutting-edge materials, such as titanium aluminide and Ceratanium®. Privileging the principle "the form
follows the function "with respect to aesthetics, the timeless creations of the Swiss manufacture embody the
dreams and ambitions of the wearer.
In the new Manufakturzentrum, opened in 2018, IWC Schaffhausen brings together the watchmaking tradition
artisanal with the most modern production methods and technologies. In the realization of the components and
of the cases, the latest generation turning and milling stations guarantee maximum quality e
precision. The assembly of the in-house movements, on the other hand, requires careful manual work. Only
thanks to the expert hands of the watchmaker, the mechanical heart of the watch begins to beat.
IWC purchases materials responsibly and takes action to minimize the impact on the environment,
creating inherently sustainable watches, built to last generation after generation.
The company is proud to train its future watchmakers and engineers and to offer a working environment
of excellence to all employees. IWC also collaborates with organizations that work for young people
and children around the world.
