万国(IWC)品牌介绍

  IWC万国表创立于1868年,制表已有130年历史。立业地方叫夏佛豪塞,当地有钟表的历史可远溯至15世纪初,足足比IWC早了459年。但得到IWC 建厂制表后,时间的精确度,才开始被人们牢牢掌握在手中。

  IWC的创办人是美国波士顿工程师佛罗伦汀·琼斯(Florentine A. Jones),他在莱茵河畔的厂房中创立了瑞士最早期的机械制表工厂,实现了他的新颖构想━以机械取代部份人工制造出更精确的零件,而後由一流的表师装配成品质超凡的表。

  1868,IWC推出第一只怀表,从那时起,IWC就在瑞士钟表业界取得许多方面的特殊地位,同时也在世界钟表制造业界具有举足轻重的地位。

  IWC万国表在世界各地代理商的努力下,近三年来业绩成长达百分之五百,成果相当惊人,使得总厂更加卯足全力,全力拓展亚太区的市场。1998年4月份巴塞尔发表的新表款更先一步在3月份即在亚洲地区首先亮相,以电传视讯方式发表,可见IWC对亚太地区的重视。

   IWC公司的创始人是一名美国钟表业者,名叫佛罗伦汀·阿里奥斯托·琼斯。1868年,琼斯为利用瑞士的制表技术和当地廉价的劳动力及水电资源来生产、出口钟表以应对美国众多新兴钟表公司的竞争,由美国本土迁居瑞士东北部的斯恰夫豪森建立IWC(国际制表公司)。

  此后,IWC公司出品的怀表风靡了19世纪末、20世纪初的钟表市场:1868年开发的 “琼斯”牌怀表机芯,很大改进了怀表的走时准确度和温度恒定水平,从而为IWC打出了牌子;1890年推出的“GRANDE COMPLICATION”怀表,不但赢得国际钟表协会的嘉评和质量优异证书,更迅即成为收藏家争购之物,甚至连当时的教皇、保加利亚皇帝以及后来的英国首相邱吉尔都拥有IWC的资型表款。

  20世纪初,IWC的生产经营重点转移至手表上。第一次世界大战时,它为军队提供了大批带夜光表面的实用手表。二战中,它成功地推出了专为飞行员研制的防磁手表。到了70年代,IWC则在防磁表的基础上,开发出把计时功能和定向罗盘相结合罗盘表,进一步方便了专业用户。此后面世的MARK更是闻名天下。
  20世纪60年代,IWC面对日本石英电子表向瑞士表发起的冲击,顺应潮流,采用了全新的技术和战略迎接挑战。它相继推出的钛合金手表,供潜水员使用的“OCEAN”系列,“VTRA SPORTIVO”超薄型手表和“PORTOFINO”系列等,使IWC跻身瑞士一流钟表商行列。而新近推出的世界上第一只附带机械深度计潜水表,更进一步展示了IWC惊天动地匪夷所思的创意和想像力。

  自1868年起,IWC所生产的每一只表都登录在手表出厂登录簿中,百馀年来,这些登录簿已集成数大册,这种登录簿是世界仅有的记录簿。旧本以花体字记录合约编号、表壳後的编号、所使用的材质、该表的重量、制表师傅的姓名、完成日期、以及钟表商或购表人的姓名等资料。俄国沙皇斐迪南一世、教宗皮耶斯九世、英国首相邱吉尔....等都曾拥有过一只以上的IWC怀表。

  同时自1868年以来,IWC厂所生产的重要备用零件都存放在高高的厨柜里,所以IWC的制表师甚至能够彻底大修最古老的表芯以确保往後许多年该老表仍能精准计时。就因为如此,IWC的表足堪做为未来数代的传家宝。

Unmistakeable originals of chronometry are the undisputed specialty of the IWC Schaffhausen watch factory in Schaffhausen, in north-east Switzerland: the famous Da Vinci with its perpetual calendar, is one such. These naturally included the first "Grande Complication" for the wrist, but also the super-antimagnetic "Ingenieur" and the diver's watches, which are capable of withstanding water pressure even down to a depth of 2000 metres - and the only diver's watches with a mechanical depth gauge. From IWC come the professional "Pilot's watches".

Equally extraordinary are the exquisite pocket watches, which have been built at IWC since the year of its foundationas in 1868.

It was no accident that an American engineer from Boston, Florentine Ariosto Jones, established the "International Watch Co." in Schaffhausen of all places in the year 1868. The factory on the Rhine - situated far from the watchmaking centres of West Switzerland - is indebted to this American for its name and its existence. There he found a newly constructed hydroelectric power station for his machines. Ideal conditions for his passion to build perfect mechanical movements for an international market. He also found watchmakers whose profession already had a long tradition in Schaffhausen. The State Archives in Schaffhausen include an entry dated 29 January 1583 relating to the Guild of Pyrotechnicians, Gunsmiths, Watchmakers and Hoistmakers to the City Council. This proves that the watchmaker's trade must already have existed in Schaffhausen at the time. In fact, the beginnings of the Schaffhausen watchmakers' art can be traced even further, as far back as the year 1409, when a monk from the neighbouring monastery in Rheinau built the striking clock of St. Johann's church.

Originals of chronometry appeared soon after the company was established, for example in 1885 the Pallweber system pocket watch with its digital display, today a sought-after collector's item. At the end of the 19th century, IWC was one of the first watch manufacturers to recognize the potential of the new and increasingly fashionable wristwatch, for which it developed entirely new movements. It also continued to build original pocket watch movements into wristwatches when the market in the thirties demanded large, extremely accurate wristwatches. This is how the Portuguese line came into being - a trendsetting wristwatch in a "king-sized" format until today.

IWC was involved when watches had to learn to fly with the aviation pioneers and today it offers a comprehensive range of professional pilot's watches, which are fitted with special protection against magnetic fields. In the fifties the company not only led the competition in the race to introduce the first automatic movements, but also developed, the so-called Pellaton winding mechanism, an unsurpassed winding system that it still uses exclusively today in its large automatic factory movements.

The special position of IWC is rooted not only in history, but also in geography. It remains the only watch factory in East Switzerland to this day. It is precisely for this reason that the factory regards the need to ensure a qualified succession in the manufacture of mechanical watches as both a commitment and a passion. Apprentice training leading to the Federal Final Diploma as Horloger complet has been the performance standard at IWC since 1950. This led us to set up our own training centre in 1968 with capacity for 15 Apprentices and two advanced training places. New training legislation came into effect in 2001, which offers budding watchmakers more flexible opportunities.

In the severe turbulence of the Swiss watch industry at the end of the seventies under its inspired manager, Günter Blümlein, this is the period in Schaffhausen when the points were set - contrary to the electronic spirit of the time - to take the company onto the track of mechanical watches, innovation and technically exacting men's watches. And from this conception of ourselves there grew the eye-catching advertising message: "IWC. Since 1868. And for as long as there are men." Because men's watches have also been a subject of interest to women for a long time.

The craft perfection, the training of its specialists, the renunciation of mass-market products: all of these are in keeping with the old-established principle of IWC. To make watches for small numbers of people, but watches of the highest quality. That is also the reason why, if carefully maintained, our watches last for decades. And why today they are rare items, which fetch collector's prices throughout the world.

Leading impulses for the mechanical watch come from IWC. With its more than 600 employees, the company manufactures these sought-after pieces. Since the year 2000 IWC has belonged to the watch division of Richemont International SA.?
