As the name suggests the International Watch Company (IWC) is a truly global brand. Founded by a US watchmaker and businessman Florentine Ariosto Jones in 1868 in Schaffhausen, IWC’s aim was to produce mechanical timepieces to traditional Swiss standard using progressive American techniques.
Now IWC employs over 650 people, including 180 of the world’s highest skilled watchmakers. In the 19th Century, IWC demonstrated a passion for innovation through pocket watches such as the Pallweber which had a revolutionary digital hour and minute display, and by the end of the century IWC were producing their first wristwatches.
