Founded by an American engineer, IWC is one of the oldest players in the industry. Maintaining their reputation, they exceed excellence by leaving no room for imperfection. Housing the famous Portugieser model has almost become a symbol of the brand. Sporting various specialist pilots and diving timepieces are just a few facets of their ever-growing successful line. “Probus scafusia,” stamped on most of the crowns within the brand, can be loosely translated as "Good thing from Schaffhausen." Playing tribute to the company’s founder, F.A. Jones, there have been a few lavish pieces that gave honor. IWC is also responsible for distributing “Watch time,” which is their own magazine that showcases all of the brands current thrilling information.
Being involved in many charitable donations is not foreign to the brand as each year they launch a specific model that spotlights an area in need and usually a portion of the proceed go to benefit the charity. Ensuring everyone’s needs are met, they carry styles that would satisfy the luxuriously rugged and astonish the elegant.
Recently implementing the slogan, "Engineered for men” has only sparked the interest of, rather than deterring, women from owning one of the most exquisite timepieces. Now offering the “Da Vinci,” coming in at a smaller size and adding some brilliant colors it is evident that this piece is anticipated for the watch savvy woman. There is something to be said of a brand who no longer manufactures quartz timepieces, an authentic watch aficionado's flavor.
