The Beyer Watch

The design of this watch emulates the giant timepiece that hangs outside the Beyer shop. It has served as a trademark for decades, and can be seen from a long way off on the Bahnhofstrasse.

IWC "Icons of time"

150 years of IWC –  on show at the Beyer Watch and Clock Museum. 150 years of IWC –  on show at the Beyer Watch and Clock Museum. Our two firms have worked closely together for 130 years - and we were also the first IWC authorised dealer in Zurich. It is therefore no coincidence that to mark the 150th anniversary of IWC Schaffhausen, our Museum is showcasing over 50 beautiful and rare watches and objects manufactured by the International Watch Company. The exhibition tells the story of the manufactory from Eastern Switzerland through specially selected historical treasures and innovative horological masterpieces of the day. Icons of the time – such as the early pocket watch «Pallweber» with its mechanical digital display, or the oldest Portugieser wristwatch in existence – are sure to enchant you. The exhibition also features numerous Pilot’s and Ingenieur watches from different eras, various artefacts, and insights into materials and designs of the future.

These rare objects are on show from
2 July to 21 September 2018
