IWC of Schaffhausen is exceptional in the literal sense. It is a Swiss brand founded by an American; it is a German-speaking manufacture beyond the traditional francophone “watch valley”; it boasts rare strength in both sports and dress watches. In Schaffhausen, the oversized “Portugieser” formal line shares equal billing with the aggressive Pilot’s line of sports models. A true manufacture, IWC is equipped to realize every step of watch
production from engineering to the final assembly of its own case and movement components.
