IWC has been in the business of watch making for over 140 years and their watches are as popular as they were 140 years ago.
Florentine Aristo Jones had a dream of making watches in Switzerland and envisioned IWC watches in 1868. Jones, originally from America, travelled to Switzerland and built a factory where he employed skilled watchmakers to manufacture IWC watches. IWC is indebted to Jones’ vision as at the time it was unheard of to centralize watch production in one place. Generally back then watches in Switzerland were made in people’s homes or in tiny shops.
