A premium pioneer in the Swiss watch industry, the International Watch Company (IWC) was founded in 1868 by a craftsman watchmaker, Florentine Arisoto Jones in Schaffhausen. Combining his knowledge of Swiss watchmakers with modern technologies and hydropower, he was able to manufacture high quality and luxury movements.
Running for more than 150 years, IWC has handcrafted six watch families - Pilot's watches, Portugieser, Ingeneieur, Aquatimer, Davinci and Portofino - from statement everyday styles to robust sports watches, IWC truly exemplifies haute horlogerie at its finest.
Pilot's Watch: An iconic style for the company, the IWC Pilot's Watches are renowned for their precision, introducing cock-pit instruments to their classic styles.
Portugieser: Another iconic style for IWC, the Portugieser - originally designed in the 1930s - is crafted with a large imposing style, understated Arabic numerals and a railway-track-style chapter ring. Simple but suave, the style today remains unrivalled.
Portofino: Capturing the laidback essence of Mediterranean living, the Portofino collection exudes elegance with classicism. Popular amongst both men and women, it offers a puristic design, uncluttered in its design with simple Roman numerals and an automatic date.
Da Vinci: Showcasing the very best of horology, the Da Vinci collection exudes an elegant design with exquisite complications hidden beneath. Created in 1985, it is a feminine style, showcasing a recessed inner circle on the dial, with a striking dome crown and a circular date at the 6 o'clock position.
Ingenieur: Refining true sportsmanship, the Ingenieur collection was developed in 1955 to showcase unparalleled technical appeal with rugged sportiness.
Aquatimer: The ideal gift for keen explorers, the Aquatimer collection showcases IWC's 50 years'+ experience of developing robust sporting technologies, capable of exploring the deepest depths of the ocean.
Offering an interchangeable steel bracelet and rubber strap, the collection features a patented IWC quick-change bracelet system, making versatility both quick and simple.
