IWC, short for International Watch Company, has pilot’s watches, dress watches, and more that have brought them widespread fame. These watches are crafted with care and with the Swiss innovation for watchmaking. The classic watches they produce all are able to draw a dedicated following of collectors, and all of their watches are designed with elegance, beauty, and timelessness in mind.
IWC has one of the more tumultuous histories, to say the least. Florentine Ariosto Jones, an American watchmaker, was the origin of this storied company. He wanted to bring his modern American sensibilities and engineering to the world of Swiss watches. Moving to Switzerland, he collaborated with watch-factory owner Johann Heinrich Moser to found IWC in 1868. Since then, the company has weathered bankruptcies, changes in ownership, and financial crises to become the well-known and respected watchmaker that they are today.
