Industrial aesthetics showroom reappears the brand’s 150-year glory journey

   In 1868, Mr. Florentine Ariosto Jones crossed the ocean from Boston in the United States to the Swiss town of Schaffhausen, combining the traditional Swiss craftsmanship with the advanced process system in the United States. The idea created IWC (International Watch Company).

   To commemorate this journey, the exhibition hall incorporates industrial metal elements into the design, with a strong industrial atmosphere and retro texture, as if pulling time back to the original era of the brand. The most remarkable is the ‘Super Time Machine’ displayed in the center of the exhibition hall, inspired by the legendary Pallweber pocket watch in the history of IWC. The digital display shows the word ‘1868’ to pay tribute to the brand’s founding year.
