An American watchmaking pioneer named Florentine Ariosto Jones founded the International Watch Company in Schaffhausen in 1868. He drew on the help of eminently qualified Swiss watchmakers, modern technology and hydropower sourced from the nearby River Rhine to manufacture watch movements of the highest possible quality.

IWC product collection consists of 6 watch families – the Pilot’s Watches, Portugieser, Ingenieur, Aquatimer, Da Vinci and Portofino – that combine precision engineering with extraordinary and timeless design and ethically sourced materials, bringing the finest technology and unparalleled elegance to your wrist.
