FOR THE AMERICAN MARKET
Roaring masses of water plunge over the rocky cliffs that make up the world-famous Rhine Falls. A few kilometers upstream, in Schaffhausen, the Rhine glides at a leisurely pace past the workshop windows of IWC. Here, over 140 years ago, a company began a story that is still being written today. American engineer and watchmaker Florentine Ariosto Jones learned the watchmaker's trade from scratch. While still a young man, he was appointed deputy director and production man of the E. Howard Watch & Clock Company in Boston, which was then a leading American watchmaker. At that time, the American market appeared to have a virtually insatiable hunger for quality. What it lacked was skilled, local labor and this led to rising wages. By contrast, the conditions prevailing in Switzerland were almost perfect: low wages, a plenum supply of skilled craftsmen and an enormous production. At the tender age of 27, Jones crossed the Atlantic Ocean, planning to combine the excellence of Switzerland's craftsmen with modern engineering. The locals in Geneva and the remote valleys of the Jura in French-speaking Switzerland, however, reacted skeptically to his proposal. Since the 17th century, they had been working from their homes or in tiny workshops, Jones, on the other hand, was dreaming of a modern factory with centralized production The country could reflect on a long watchmaking tradition. The Rheinau monastery, 10 kilometers further down the Rhine. It's been produced for the Church of St. John In Schaffhausen. There are also official records of clockmakers from the town of 1583, and it is home to the famed Habrecht family of clockmakers, who built one of the most outstanding astronomical clocks in Strasbourg. of Schaffhausen, Jones has found all he needed to turn his plans into reality, including a hydro station powered by the Rhine. The energy it was harnessed was transmitted directly, via shafts and long cables, to the newly built factory and supplied the power needed to drive the machines. The railway line had been completed in 1857, so it was no wonder that the town of Schalthnusen was enjoying the economic boom. FA Jones founded his watch company The International Watch Co. (IWC)
The development and continuous improvement of movements, functional displays and cases have been part of IWC's philosophy since 1868. IWC-manufactured movements and complications such as the perpetual calendar, constant-force tourbillon and minute repeater are not only his- topically significant achievements in the art of watchmaking but also the fruit of the company's in-house design and development efforts. In order to meet its demanding, self-imposed quality standards, IWC has its own fully equipped, dedicated laboratory.
