The spirit of innovation has defined the International Watch Company since its inception, when the American F. A. Jones had the vision to bring together the diverse arts of watchmaking, under one roof, at a factory powered the mighty Rhine Falls. Kurt Klaus, Rolex Milgauss Replica Herr and other IWC pioneers are the most steadfast advocates of this quality.
Kurt Klaus, the company's and watchmaking's greatest repository of horological history is the most important brand. Kurt Klaus, if watchmaking had an honorary hall of fame would have been inducted many years ago. While he was the technical director of IWC, he oversaw the development of the world's first industrial split-seconds chronograph, the world's first Bourdon-tube depth gauge inside a wristwatch, the world's first modular minute repeater,swiss replica watches
the world's first seven-day-power-reserve automatic movement with hyper-efficient Pellaton winding system, and he single-handedly created the world's first synchronised perpetual calendar where all information - day, date, month, year, leap-year indication, moon phases and even digital reading for the year - was controlled by a single crown.
Il Destriero Scafusia, also known as the "Warhorse of Schaffhausen", was a tourbillon chronograph, a minute repeater, and a split-seconds clock that, incredibly, was built using a Valjoux base calibre. If you think this is counter-intuitive then reconsider. IWC's goal has always been to find technical solutions that make any complication reliable, robust, and perform better than its haute de gamme counterpart at an affordable price.
Rolex Milgauss Replica Herr, CEO of IWC began his career in architecture. He prefers to see it as a profession that encompasses visions that are far more than aesthetic. Grainger Herr believes that architecture is a form of social discourse. His conversation with watch buyers, expressed through the "150 Years Jubilee Collection",omega replica watches
has so far been a deeply engaging one. He has shown that he can use the past of the brand in surprising ways to shape its future. The IWC Tribute To Pallweber wristwatch is a good example. The Pilot's Watch has evolved beyond its practical roots and now houses an annual calendar complication in a seamless manner.
Revolution had the privilege of meeting with these two innovators and discussing how the 150th Anniversary of the brand is reflected in the collection created to celebrate it. We felt privileged in reliving some wonderful memories of Klaus while learning how Grainger Herr will lead the brand to greater success and innovation in the future.
