IWC Schaffhausen Watches
Over its 150 year history, International Watch Co, or IWC Schaffhausen has developed a reputation for creating functional complications, especially chronographs and calendars, which are ingenious, robust, and easy for customers to use. Preferring the principle of "form follows function" over decoration, the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer's timeless creations embody their owners' dreams and ambitions as they journey through life.
The Story of IWC Schaffhausen Watches
Originating in the Schaffhausen, Switzerland region in 1868, Boston-born Ariosto Jones merged the American system of industrialized production with the unrivaled craftsmanship found in Swiss watchmakers to create the International Watch Company (IWC). After creating the watch brand and manufacturing the first IWC watch - the self-titled Jones caliber named after the founder - IWC immediately earned a reputation for excellence and established itself as creators of luxury watches.
As the company moved into the 20th century, they further demonstrated their watchmaking excellence with the development and release of the IWC Special Pilot's Watch. The Pilot's Watch was specifically designed by the watchmaker with pilots in mind as it featured a rotating bezel that included an arrowhead to keep track of take-off times. Demand was so great for this style of watch that IWC released the IWC Big Pilot's watch, which has a larger face and a central seconds hand. The Pilot Watch-style timepiece still remains one of IWC's best-selling models and is often considered a vintage watch.
