The International Watch Company also known as IWC is a high end Swiss watch,IWC Watches manufacturer.
IWC Watches is notable for being the only major Swiss watch factory located in Eastern Switzerland, as the majority of Swiss watch manufacturers are based in Western Switzerland.
In 1868 American engineer and watchmaker Florentine Ariosto Jones founded the International Watch Company. His intention was to combine the craftsmanship of the Swiss with modern engineering technology from the U.S. to manufacture watch parts for the American market. With its passion for innovation and technical inventiveness, IWCSchaffhausen has established an international reputation.Since 1868, the Swiss watch manufacturers have been creating masterpieces of haute horlogerie that combine precision engineering with exclusive design.
The company began keeping detailed records for every watch that has left their factory since 1885. For a small fee the owner can obtain precise information about their watch as long as the watch is at least 10 years old. IWC’s service department has the parts and is capable of repairing and maintaining watches from every era since the IWC’s foundation in 1868.
The IWC’s watch families are proof of the expertise of the engineers. From robust watches for everyday use to professional sports watches, to the complexities of Haute Horologerie. The seven families at IWC are Da Vinci, Aquatimer, Pilot’s Watches, Ingenieur, Portofino, Portuguese and IWC Vintage Collection.
The IWC also produces high end special editions and their Protuguese Siderale Scafusia is the most exclusive and most complicated mechanical watch ever created by IWC Schaffhausen. The design of the dial is of the same characteristic and style as that of the entire IWC Portuguese watch family. Apart from standard time it also has a display at 12 o’clock showing sidereal time which is vital to astronomers. The newly developed constant-force tourbillon, which combines a tourbillion with a constant-force mechanism, guarantees a regular and precise rate for a period of at least 48 hours. The 90-hour scale of the power reserve display at 4.30 underscores the enormous power generated by the two barrels. The choice of materials for the case, the five different colours for the dial, the various colours for the appliqués and the straps and the material used for the straps result in over 200 different design options.
