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. In Boston Florentino Aristo Jones watched as the company fails Lyufkina Aaron Dennison, a leader in the watch industry for many years, whose attempts to promote its products in Switzerland have failed miserably. Undaunted, Jones took over the company, and soon started his own company in Switzerland.He planned to assemble watches in Switzerland and import them into the United States, hence the name of the company - International Watch Company. Quite accidentally Jones met Johann Heinrich Moser, whose watch workshop in Schaffhausen was conveniently located near the Reina. Following the advice of Moser, the dam was built to harness the mighty river and have the energy to run the mechanisms used in various industries in Schaffhausen. 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.
