With more technical features demonstrating the art of Haute Horlogerie than any other IWC collection, the Portugieser is one of the brand’s oldest and most renowned watch families. Portugieser timepieces are celebrated for their timeless and distinctive design including simple Arabic numerals and the “chemin de fer” railway-track-style chapter ring, which was introduced in the 1930s when it was ahead of its time. The impressive size of the Portugieser made an impact on the industry by setting the trend towards larger timepieces, further establishing the watch as a style icon.

Pilot's Watch Collection

When looking back on the history of professional pilot’s watches, it’s clear that IWC is at the forefront of this style. IWC’s first Pilot’s Watches from the 1930s and 1940s were revolutionary, launching technical benchmarks and setting the trend for dial designs still popular today. Launched in 1940, IWC’s Big Pilot’s Watch exemplifies these accomplishments within the industry. Now, over 70 years later, the newest models bring another generation of success to this iconic watch. The Pilot’s Watch Collection from IWC Schaffhausen presents a varied yet balanced range of Pilot’s Watches, extending from the Big Pilot’s Heritage Watch to the fashionable Mark XVIII and the sophisticated Pilot’s Watch Automatic 36. Pilots and jet setters will particularly enjoy the new Timezoner Chronograph which can switch time zones with a simple twist.

For over a quarter of a century, the IWC Portofino has represented classic elegance, coming in a variety of sleek styles that have made it one of the watchmaker’s most successful families.

IWC Schaffhausen Ingenieur Collection, Ref.: IW380801.

Ingenieur Collection

Inspired by the alluring world of Formula 1, IWC’s Ingenieur collection impressed watch enthusiasts with its remarkable features. The first Ingenieur watch included a bidirectional Pellaton winding system which is faster than conventional movements, along with protection against magnetic fields, a characteristic that has continued to the Ingenieur pieces of today. The legendary Ingenieur SL was first designed in the 1970s by Gérald Genta with a notable contemporary and technical appeal. It has since then been remodelled in 2013, using materials commonly found in Formula 1 – titanium aluminide, carbon, ceramic and titanium. This collection boasts technical advances including IWC’s patented constant-force tourbillon, the quick-action switch and large double-digit displays for both the date and month. The new Ingenieur additions from 2017 once again drew inspiration from the aesthetics of the 1950s and 60s, as expressed through the classic round case and a dial presenting striking hands and indices with illuminated features.

IWC Schaffhausen Heritage

The origins of the “International Watch Co.” date back to 1868 when Boston watchmaker Florentine Ariosto Jones founded the company in Schaffhausen. Since its inception, the brand has earned a strong reputation for its master craftsmanship through ground-breaking solutions and technical advancements. As a world-renowned watchmaker, IWC has mastered the art of Haute Horlogerie, producing timepieces with utmost precision and elegant design.

IWC first gained credibility with the launch of its first movement, the infamous Jones Calibre. The brand further proved its innovative motives through creating the Pallweber pocket watches, which featured a ground-breaking digital display for hours and minutes. The end of the 1800s saw the introduction of IWC’s first wristwatches incorporating the 64-calibre pocket watch movement.

Now, IWC continues its dedication to technology and advancement while simultaneously highlighting the importance of social responsibility and environmental impact. IWC is devoted to manufacturing through sustainable means and working alongside organisations committed to ecological conservation.
