American engineer and watchmaker, Florentine Ariosto Jones left Boston at the age of 27 to move to Schaffhausen Switzerland. It was there that he founded his company IWC in 1868 on the banks of the River Rhine. IWC has marked many achievements in the watchmaking industry including the first chronograph to feature a perpetual calendar that is mechanically programmed for 500 years. Their Pilot's Watch, Portugieser and Da Vinci are just three of their sought after models.
