In Schaffhausen, the digital age began early, back in 1884. That was the year IWC manufactured its first Pallweber pocket watches. "These were avant-garde watches and displayed the hours and minutes using large numerals on rotating discs," explains Christian Satzke, project manager for movement development with IWC Schaffhausen. A watchmaker in Salzburg, Josef Pallweber, was the inventor of the jumping-numeral timepiece. Johannes Rauschenbach-Schenk, head of IWC at the time, was captivated by the modern form of time display and secured the patent for the innovative technology behind it. As part of its jubilee collection, IWC is proud to present the Tribute to Pallweber Edition "150 Years" with a jumping-numeral display for the hours and minutes.
