The International Watch Company, better known as IWC, was founded by an American watchmaker in the Swiss town of Schaffhausen. The IWC watch family includes many classic timepieces such as their Pilot’s Watches, Ingenieur, Da Vinci, and Portofino, ranging from robust every-day watches to elegant and complicated haute horlogerie time-pieces.
Overhaul is recommended at the buyer’s expense. Long-term precision and regularity cannot be guaranteed. Size and weight may deviate from the manufacturer’s indication. All watches are hand-measured and weighed.
