We are proud of this transaction, in 2022 an IWC boutique will open in the Schuttershofstraat 9, a property owned by Athelean!
In 1868, the American watchmaker and entrepreneur Florentine Ariosto Jones travelled from Boston to Switzerland and founded the ‘International Watch Company’ in Schaffhausen. His visionary dream was to combine advanced American manufacturing methods with the craftsmanship of Swiss watchmakers to make the best pocket watches of his time. In doing so, he not only laid the foundation for IWC’s unique engineering approach but also established the centralised production of mechanical watches in Switzerland. More than 150 years later this brand will finally have a boutique in Antwerp. We wish IWC all the best with this new store!
