IWC trench watch from 1945. IWC produced some of the finest wartime pieces with the help of American technology and Swiss craftsmanship. These pieces were the most accurate on the field because they ran on advanced and precise movements. The case on this watch is called “cushion case” because it looks like a cushion but it also shows the ways watchmakers experimented with certain shapes in an attempt to create the modern day wristwatch. The special history behind this watch is definitely something to talk about. So wear it on a day when you are going to meet people that will appreciate the beautiful piece of engineering on your wrist.
About the Brand
IWC has an interesting history it was founded by an American called Florentine Ariosto Jones from Boston.
