Landing in Zurich puts you adjacent to one of the most popular Swiss watch brands: IWC. The Schaffhausen-based label still stands on the original building spot, but also has a brand new state of the art manufacture just down the road that is designed to double production of its in-house movements. IWC is also significant because the manufacture was one of the earliest examples of a factory that operated on sustainable energy. Florentine Ariosto Jones drew on the Rhine’s flow with hydroelectric power to provide the necessary energy to run it. Today, IWC remains committed to sustainability and maintains that it’s a manufacture with a minimal carbon footprint. Along with the beautiful architecture of Neuhausen, see the Rhine Falls while you’re there. It’s the biggest waterfall in the continent and part of the Rhine River that runs through most of Europe.
