IWC Schaffhausen Timepieces
Characteristics of IWC Watches
Florentine Ariosto Jones founded The International Watch Company in 1868, seeking to combine the best Swiss watchmaking techniques with the latest in cutting-edge American technology to create a new generation of fine watches. With the innovation of hydropower, IWC harnessed this leading technology to create their very first movement, the eponymous Jones Calibre. Today, IWC Watches maintains that legacy of forward-thinking precision. Always using top-of-the-line technology in accord with artistry that has stood the test of time, IWC creates artisanal timepieces that are defined by their powerful designs.
Popular IWC Watch Collections
An emblem of IWC from the 1930s, the first Portugeiser was commissioned as a wristwatch that still bore the trademark precision of a marine chronometer. Bold pieces, with slender Arabic numerals, and a railway-track-style chapter ring, these simple-to-use watches have served as a benchmark for over eight decades. For something more contemporary, but no less reliable, the Portofino collection is a popular watch style that remains androgynous in its appeal. Uncluttered, with clear and easy-to-read Roman numerals, these timepieces are straightforward and pragmatic in both form and function, clad in the traditional round, golden casings.
The Pilot’s collection has a classic design, evocative of a cockpit’s instruments, these watches are renowned for their precision. The conical crown of the Pilot’s watch is a homage to the earliest aviators, as its shape made it easy to grip and set in the gloves necessary in cockpits devoid of climate control. Of course, if you want to see IWC’s trademark innovation, we‘re happy to offer the Aquatimer diver’s watch collection. Watertight to two-hundred meters, the Aquatimer family features easy to see two-tone Super Lumi-Nova fluorescent coating, making it quick to orient and read in even the darkest conditions.
