In 2018 the IWC museum in Schaffhausen celebrates its 150th anniversary. For watch-aficionados and friends of the company visiting the museum is an unforgettable experience. The IWC museum allows visitors exciting insights into the watch manufacturer’s history and present.  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 watchmaker pioneer from Boston had been attracted to Schaffhausen by the qualified Swiss specialists and the river Rhine’s waterpower. In the west wing of the museum, where once watchcases and parts have been fabricated, visitors can now discover the first 100 years of the company’s history and find out about the development of IWC pocket and wristwatches.
