Craig" and just what was his link with Jones, the precocious Boston watchmaker who stumbled on Schaffhausen to ascertain the International Watch Company watch auctions , in 1868, at age of 27? IWC North American brand president Edouard d'Arbaumont says that research to the origin of the inscribed name said that the initials were those of Daniel Hastings Craig (1811 - 1895), Jones's uncle along with the brother of his mother, Lavinia. A very good businessman whose pioneering international news company in New York was the forerunner of today's Associated Press, Craig was likely an important financier of his nephew's fledgling watch company, which would explain why "D.H.
