Automatic IWC watches have an international reputation. Loved for their innovative designs which demonstrate a clear focus on technology – these sensational timepieces are much more than an instrument for timekeeping. They are pure works of art. Each movement fitted within an automatic IWC watch is assembled meticulously by dextrous fingers and a keen eye for detail at the Maison’s manufacturing head quarters. Constructing these movements is a specialise skill. Assembling such an intricate network of components involves connecting the winding mechanism, the train and the escapement. In some models it will also involve assembling the chronograph mechanisms, the calendar and the hour counter. Watchmaking experts at IWC have to align the balance spring and adjust the escapement – a process that only the most qualified of innovators have the opportunity of carrying out.
During the assembling of a beautiful IWC automatic watch, precision adjustments and functionality checks are carried out at every stage throughout the process. These are standards, after all, that are set by a world-renowned luxury watchmaking company. These masterpieces are of the highest calibre around. The IWC special features department is where some of the movements are fitted by tourbillions and minute repeaters, before being fitted inside their stunning cases.
Of course, many automatic IWC watches feature self winding movements. They are a popular choice among avid wristwatch wearers and promise convenient timekeeping as well as a comfortable and stylish design for the wrist. These timepieces are thus a beautiful item of luxury jewellery to adorn the wrist with – each design telling a story of IWC’s past, their history-steeped journey to success, or their vision for the future.
