|+||====== Jones, Florentine Ariosto ======|
|+||**Florentine Ariosto Jones** (15 Feb. [] - 18 Oct. []) was a US-American engineer and entrepreneur. Together with Charles Lewis Kidder in [] he founded the International Watch Company ([[IWC]]) in [[Schaffhausen]].|
|+||The [[manufactory]] on the Rhine - far away from the watch centers of western Switzerland - owes its name and existence to this American. He found there, not far from the famous Rhine Falls, a newly built hydroelectric power plant for his machines and thus ideal conditions for his passion to build perfect mechanical movements for an international market.|
