VISIT TO THE IWC MANUFACTURE

Pere Quera 1887 had the opportunity to visit IWC manufacturing in Schauffhausen with a small group of clients. There they could know about the history of the city and the Swiss brand.
The city of Schaffhausen, is famous for its industrial legacy beside the Rhine. Here the river sinks under a cliff forming spectacular waterfalls. It was in this city where more than 150 years ago began a corporate history that is still being written today. The initiator was a young American engineer and watchmaker who arrived in Schaffhausen just 27 years ago and founded the International Watch Company, where he wanted to combine the excellent Swiss craftsmanship with modern technology to manufacture movements and pieces to export to American market Here, he found a newly built hydroelectric plant and experienced watchmakers with a long tradition in this world. From here the brand has been evolving and becoming a name, to this day.

It has been a unique opportunity to enter a Swiss manufacture and see the work of all the watchmakers and engineers who make possible the elaboration of these small mechanical works of art.
