In 1993, on the occasion of its 125th anniversary, IWC opened an exclusive museum at its Schaffhausen headquarters and became Switzerland’s first watch manufacturer with such a facility. Since 2007 the collection is housed on the first floor of the historic main building that was built in 1875 by the IWC founder Florentine Ariosto Jones (1841-1916).
The new home of IWC watches represents the world of an international luxury brand. Together with the objects on display, it creates surroundings that are at once modern yet timeless, luxurious yet functional, and with every convenience the visitor could possibly wish for. Guests are transported back in time to explore the historical timepieces and the rich history of IWC, and can explore the lineage of each spectacular IWC watch family.
