IWC watches are designed both for men and for women and among their collections are some of the world’s most luxurious watches.

Although IWC is a Swiss company, it was founded by an American watchmaking pioneer, Florentine Ariosto Jones. He drew a lot of his inspiration from Swiss watchmakers and the company was officially founded in 1868. Qualified Swiss watchmakers guided his manufacturing process and often leant a helping hand, which gave him access to some of best technology available at that time.

The hardest IWC watch to buy would be any of the watches that are a part of the limited editions. The other hardest watches to buy would be any of those made with a metal that is perhaps pricey or rare. You should also have a look at the most expensive watches, as they too can be rather rare buys.

Which IWC should I buy?

The IWC watch that you buy should be the one that you really want. This means you should opt for the watch that reflects your personality and which also reflects your needs. IWC creates a range of watches with a specific purpose, such as watches that can be worn when swimming.

How long will a IWC watch last?

When taken good care of, your IWC watch will last a lifetime. In order to make sure that your watch is kept in the best possible condition, it is important to make sure that you take it in for regular services and that you correctly store your watch when you are not wearing it. Your watch battery will not last a lifetime though, so you will have to replace it every few years.

How do I tell if my IWC is real?

There are a few easy ways to tell if your IWC watch is real:

1.      Check the dial. IWC is well known for their incredible attention to detail. This means a real watch has a sapphire crystal on the face, uniform colouring on the dial, and everything on the dial is neat and in line.

2.      The bezel of the case should not have another pusher at the 10 o’clock and the case should be sleek and smooth.

3.      The crown should be slim and the shape should not be obstructed in any way.

4.      The bracelet should have an uneven-numbered lug width.

Should I buy a new or used IWC?

Whether you buy a new watch or a used one, is entirely based on a few considerations. If you are looking to save money, you should buy a used IWC while if you have the budget and you are not keen on wearing a watch that someone else has owned, then you can buy a new one. Used watches are generally sold in an almost new condition, but this is only a guarantee if you are buying from a reputable second hand seller.

What is the most wanted IWC?

The most wanted IWC watch is any watch in the limited or special editions range. Only a handful of these watches have been manufactured, and most have already been sold which means they are not only rare but you might only be able to buy one of these watches as a second hand piece.

How much is IWC service cost?

The cost to service an IWC watch is going to be determined by two things; the watch you own and the company or person who you have taken your watch to in order to be serviced. There is not likely to be one standard rate so you might have to ask around.

How can I tell the year of my IWC?

To find the year, you will need to open the casing and find the serial number which is usually found on the movement or on the case back. The number will then need to be cross referenced with the IWC list of serial numbers.

Do IWC watches need maintenance?

Yes they do, and it is important that you take your watch to be serviced every year or so. You should also make sure that the watch is regularly polished and stored away safely.

Do IWC watches hold their value?

Yes they do, but only if you make it your mission to make sure that the watch gets its regular service, is properly stored and that it gets polished often.

Do IWC watches come with a certificate of authenticity?

Yes, all IWC watches should come with a certificate of authenticity. Only the manufacturer can present this certificate.
