IWC Schaffhausen

IWC Schaffhausen

It is only the most innovative of brands that continue to thrive after 150 years; the rich history behind IWC Schaffhausen watches marks its place among such ranks, telling a tale of endurance, adaptability and precision engineering. This pioneering precedent was set out from the very beginning when American founder Florence Ariosto Jones chose to situate his manufacturing hub not in the French-speaking heart of Swiss watchmaking, but on the country’s German border in the historic town of Schaffhausen. Combining American production techniques with the skilled craftsmanship of native horologists, the House’s modern-day offerings attest to the abiding nature of its early creations, with its six watch families – Pilot, Portugieser, Portofino, Da Vinci, Ingenious and Aquatimer – all honouring age-old models.

    History in the Making

    Six watch families span 150 years of ingenuity at IWC Schaffhausen; its founder Florentine Ariosto Jones’ vision was to combine “all the excellence of the American system of mechanism with the more skillful hand labour of the Swiss.” With the opening of its Manufakturzentrum in 2018, IWC Schaffhausen entered a new era – safeguarding its expertise and Jones’ manifesto for centuries to come.

    Grande complication, moon phase display, double rattrapante chronograph… Elaborate complications are innate to IWC Schaffhausen. Take its perpetual calendar – brainchild of Kurt Klaus, which debuted in the Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar of 1985. A smart, mechanical programme, it displays the date, day, month, four-digit year and moon phase, while automatically recognising different month lengths.

    Portugieser

    Engineered for navigators, IWC Schaffhausen’s 1930s Portugieser design is as iconic today as ever. Tradition and modernity are celebrated in equal measure; a large, pocket watch-scale movement is transformed into an imposing wristwatch silhouette, adorned with sleek Arabic numerals and feuille hands. It is one of the oldest and most renowned watch families of the IWC Schaffhausen oeuvre.
