IWC was founded by Florentine Ariosto Jones, a Boston-born watchmaker, in 1868 in Switzerland. He utilized the help of Swiss watchmakers, along with modern technology and hydropower that was derived from the River Rhine to manufacture the highest possible quality watch movements. Several years after it was founded, the ownership of this factory was transferred into Swiss hands. In 1880, Johannes Rauschenbach-Vogel purchased the company, and four generations owned and ran it, under varying names. Even though the transfer of ownership from generation to generation, the brand stayed true to the philosophy of the product – Probus Scafusia, which was a dedication to excellence.
IWC is known for producing innovative timepieces that are crafted with only the highest quality parts, and that feature beautiful designs. Currently, there are six signature watch families offered by IWC, featuring everything from dress watches to diving watches, all designed and built with the same dedication to excellence as in the very beginning.
