IWC Schaffhausen HERITAGE
As the name suggests the International Watch Company IWC Schaffhausen is a truly global brand. Founded by a US watchmaker and businessman Florentine Ariosto Jones in 1868 in Schaffhausen, IWC Schaffhausen's aim was to produce mechanical watches to traditional Swiss standard using progressive American techniques.
Now IWC Schaffhausen employs over 650 people, including 180 of the world’s highest skilled watchmakers. In the 19th Century, IWC Schaffhausen 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 Schaffhausen were producing their first wristwatches.
