IWC Schaffhausen Watches

 In 1868 a pioneering American took the brand name IWC (International Watch Company) to Schaffhausen in Switzerland. His goal was to merge recent technical advances in production techniques, with the skill and craftsmanship long associated with Swiss watch making. Thus started the story of a leading watch manufacture who has been setting standards in technological development and precision horology ever since.

 

The company motto ‘Probus Scafusia’, expresses IWC’s continuing and energetic quest for excellence. Remarkably, as early as 1885, this innovative company produced its first digital display watch. Later in 1935, it launched the first wristwatch exclusively designed for pilots. 1955 saw the hugely successful introduction of IWC’s automatic watch movement and later in 1978, the first compass watch was unveiled. With the birth of the enduring De Vinci range in 1985, came the first perpetual calendar watch with a 4 digit year display. More recently, in 2004, IWC launched the ‘Aquatimer’ an exciting new generation of diver's watches.

 

Each of the IWC Schaffhausen ‘watch families’ has a distinctive appearance and a powerful personality originating from its initial conception. It is evident in the contemporary collection that, as well as addressing modern needs, the designs all look back on and embrace traditional values. Each of these time pieces clearly demonstrates the innovations of four generations of development at Schaffhausen and is the end product of the company’s dedication and unique expertise.

 

IWC’s exclusive design range includes: durable watches for everyday use, professional watches, sports watches and the sophistication of ‘Haute Horlogerie’ at its most sublime. In addition to these, there are specialty editions including the ‘Grande Complication’ and the IWC ‘Vintage Collection’. Although IWC creates watches primarily designed for men it does have a loyal female following, including Hollywood actress Kate Blanchet, who wear the stylish watches with pride.
