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’s six watch families combine precision engineering with extraordinary and timeless design and ethically sourced materials, bringing the finest technology and unparalleled elegance to your wrist.

What You Need To Know About IWC Watches Hong Kong

In 1868, Boston watchmaker Florentine Ariosto Jones founded the “International Watch Co.” in Schaffhausen, far from the watchmaking centres of French-speaking Switzerland. His plan was to combine advanced American production technologies with the skilled craftsmanship for which Swiss watchmakers were famous. In Schaffhausen, he found ideal conditions: modern factory premises, a hydropower plant driven by the Rhine to run the machines and, equally important, a centuries-old horological tradition.

The company’s reputation was established from the start with its first movement, the eponymous Hones calibre. In 1885, IWC demonstrated its innovative spirit in the Pallweber pocket watches, with their revolutionary digital display for hours and minutes. The end of the 19th century saw the appearance of IWC’s first wristwatches featuring the 64-calibre pocket watch movement.

The Family Tradition At IWC

IWC’s watch families - the Pilot’s Watches, Portugieser, Ingenieur, Aquatimer, Da Vinci and Portofino- look back on a long tradition. They attest to the innovation of the engineers in Schaffhausen through four generations and embrace the broad range of the company’s watchmaking expertise: from robust watches for everyday use to professional sports watches and the complexities of Haute Horlogerie at its finest. These are joined by watch specialities such as the Grande Complication and the IWC Vintage Collection.

Do IWC watches increase in value?

Yes, IWC watches increase and maintain their value over time. Most well known for their Pilot watch, IWC truly mixed technology with luxury in every watch they create. Their watches offer a great resale value if properly maintained and cared for.

Why is IWC watches so expensive?

IWC makes several pilot-styled models in different price ranges. For example, the Big Pilot uses an IWC in-house movement, and they are more exclusive and costly for a manufacturer to use, so some of the pricing reflects that.
