IWC Road Less Travelled

In 1868, Boston watchmaker Florentine Ariosto jones founded the “International Watch Co.” In Schaffhausen, where he found ideal conditions: modern factory premises, a hydropower plant driven by the Rhine to run the machines and, equally important, a centuries-old-horo-logical tradition. With a clear focus on technology and development, the Swiss watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen has gained an international reputation based on a passion for innovative solutions and technical ingenuity. IWC crafts masterpieces of haute horlogerie at their finest, combining supreme precision with exclusive design.

IWC pilot’s watches introduced back in 1936 the cockpit-instrument look for classic pilot’s Watches and enjoy global renown as precise timepieces with outstanding technology. With its Portofino range of watches, IWC resumed its tradition of the classic, functional round gold cases. For over 30 years, the classically elegant Portofino has captured the laid-back lifestyle of the Mediterranean and the very essence of understatement and good taste.
