For over 150 years, the International Watch Company, otherwise known as IWC Schaffhausen, has remained one of the world’s leading luxury watch brands with a prowess for combining supreme precision with a breathtaking design flair. The history of IWC Schaffhausen watches began in 1868, when Florentine Ariosto Jones, an American engineer and watchmaker, travelled to Switzerland with a plan to combine the traditional craftsmanship of the Swiss with modern engineering technology from overseas.
Today, IWC Schaffhausen leads the way with their best-selling collections like the iconic IWC Pilots watch or their breathtaking range of chronographs and dress pieces in their IWC Portugieser collection. Inspired by a story from the 1930’s when two Portuguese gentlemen requested a wristwatch with the precision of marine chronometer, the IWC Portugieser family has become a staple of luxury design, housing the brand’s premium in-house movements and elegant dial designs elevated by hand-finishing, polishing and domed sapphire crystal glass.
