Join us inside the IWC Schaffhausen Manufacturing Centre and Discover the ‘MY IWC’ 8-Year Warranty Program

Something extra for IWC owners regarding quality and warranty...

If you want to get a good understanding of a watch company, visiting the manufacture is really something you should plan. This is how you truly discover how a manufacture builds its watches, defines quality, and find out what is made “in-house”. IWC was born from an industrial vision, as F.A. Jones set up his manufacture next to the river Rhine. Here, he could combine American production methods, hydro-power from the river and Swiss watchmaking skills.

IWC Schaffhausen recently opened its new, and very impressive “Manufacturing Centre”. IWC has invested heavily in building a large portfolio of movements in these new production facilities. This is key for the brand to be able to innovate and to have total control over its quality.

Join us inside the new IWC Schaffhausen “Manufacturing Centre” with CEO Christoph Grainger-Herr and Creative Director Christian Knoop, to see where these IWC watches are designed, conceived and produced almost entirely in-house.


On the occasion of the opening of the new IWC Schaffhausen “Manufacturing Centre”, the brand is also able to capitalize on the resulting increase in quality and reliability. “As a consequence of our continuous investment in the quality, durability and longevity of our products, and the opening of our new Manufacturing Centre in 2018, we are now renewing our legendary promise of quality to our customers,” explains Christoph Grainger-Herr. “We are proud to introduce the ‘My IWC’ programme, which enables clients to extend our International Limited Warranty from two to eight years.

Upon successful registration, the International Limited Warranty will be extended from two to eight years. The programme is also available retroactively. Watch enthusiasts who have purchased their IWC watch within the last two years, and are still covered by the original warranty, can also register.

  1. Someone should have fixed his tie. Some may think it’s a not a big deal, it’s authentic to the moment. If this is true, I’m taking a huge pass on the brand. Any manufacturer that feels that sloppy is acceptable on a personal level will think even less about the work they produce.

    Next time use a stylist. I do this with every production even if I know it’s overkill.

  2. Buyer beware. Bought a IWC Portuguese last year. Forgot to take off my watch and went in a pool for 15 minutes. Watch is supposed to be 3bar water resistant. Filled up with water. IWC claimed bent crown and refused to cover with their “supposed “ warranty. What a joke. Gave me a $8k bill for repair of my $12k watch after no damage, not a single scratch. Have had no issues with my Omega’s.
