For your attention I give the description of the product. POCKET WATCH MOVEMENT Caliber 67. There's something you might not know about this brand - it is the only major Swiss company, founded by an American! In the sixties the XIX century in America was dominated by three time stamps: Elgin, Howard and Waltham. As a whole, these companies produced more than one hundred thousand watches.
Times have changed, and a pocket watch, which were a symbol of the rich, have become accessible to the average worker. Thus, it was necessary to improve, for example, the majority component of the mechanism are still made by hand. Their price was too high, because there were very few qualified watchmakers. Watch factory was built in Schaffhausen to benefit from the cheap water power and was opened in 1868.
Despite the unique plan of the company, the company nearly collapsed at the time of his birth. At first Jones had issues with sending hours in America because tariffs on the import of products out there were very high. By 1875 he had to seek new investors for your business.
The inevitable was signing papers for bankruptcy and Jones had to leave the company. Swiss consortium acquired IWC part and invited Frederick Zealand manage it. Although the fate of a little improved, the improvements were not enough. As a result, the company had to sell again. Technological advances and growth in sales resulted in a new production of pocket watches with a digital time display and the invention of the legendary clock "Calibre 52", which were the real revolution in the watch industry.Were soon invented clock mechanism Caliber 65, a little later - with an elegant Caliber 75. The company has never lagged behind the fashion came as Art Deco, immediately started to be issued watches rectangular shape.
Even during the war IWC has not lost its name and became world famous. The good news for boaters was the invention of the 70-ies of XX century clock, crown which was connected to a rubber shock-proof mechanism. In 1978, anti-magnetic watches were collected with a compass, and in 1980 - titanium chronograph. This invention has put the company ahead of the rest, because titanium was very difficult to handle the material. The rotor of automatic winding watches IWC engraved phrase "Probus Scafusia", which means the great skills of Schaffhausen.
