International Watch Co Schaffhausen - this is the full name of the company known as IWC .
This company appearance marked a completely new, industrial approach to watch-making. The company founded in 1968 by Florence A.Jones from the very beginning of its existence aimed at making a great number of watches. And not just watches, but the best ones. Such ambitions of a young enterprise are not surprising, because Jones was a watchmaker, an engineer and what is the most important thing, he was an American from Boston.
The Company's reputation was always very high. Right up till the fifties of the previous century the company's rolls contained the information on whom, when and what exactly watches had been sold. Not many companies can afford this. There are many famous people among IWC clients, for instance Ferdinand I, doctor Young, Sir Winston Churchill. German air forces order this company's watches. The military especially like Mark XI model, which was made up in 1948 and is in quite great demand today.
Being a producer of multifunctional, rather complicated watches, IWC never was behind the leaders. It won many awards in international exhibitions. A watch model with minute repeater, chronograph and astronomic perpetual calendar which consists of 1300 details is produced by IWC nowadays.
