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.
