IWC Schaffhausen proudly welcomes Jagger Eaton to the IWC family as the newest Friend of the Brand. The two-time skateboarding World Champion and Olympic Medalist, Jagger Eaton, is known for his raw talent, perseverance, and confidence. With a shared appreciation for sports, IWC and Eaton are bound together by their dedication to pushing the limits of what is achievable.
Jagger Eaton represents a new generation of young skateboarding talent. Born in 2001 to the owners of a skatepark in Arizona, Eaton has been skating since the ripe age of four. With support from his family, he quickly realized his passion for skating. His remarkable versatility in both street and park skateboarding has helped cement his career as a professional skateboarder.

Eaton recently became the only athlete to win the World Championships in street and park. This secured his position as the first competitor on the USA Skateboarding National Team to compete in both disciplines. In 2012, he set the record as the youngest competitor ever to compete in the X Games, as well as the youngest winner of the coveted Tampa Am (2014).
His impressive list of achievements also includes winning gold and silver in Men’s Street at the X Games in Minneapolis (2017 and 2018); silver in Men’s Park in Minneapolis (2019); a Tampa Pro win (2018); and gold in Men’s Park at the X Games in Chiba (2022).
Apart from being a great competitor, Eaton is fully committed to community give-back initiatives. Understanding the impact that his family’s skatepark had on his own career, he wants to make skateboarding more accessible to kids.
This ambition is reflected in his work with the skateboard brand The Heart Supply, which annually gives away skateboards in hopes of putting them under as many new feet as possible. Eaton also participates in their non-profit initiative that goes to Xala, Mexico multiple times a year and engages in reforestation efforts to offset the impact of hardwood skateboards.
Eaton chose the all-black IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 TOP GUN Ceratanium® (Ref. IW388106). Made from the patented Ceratanium®, it is as tough and almost as light as titanium yet similarly as hard and scratch-resistant as ceramic.
“For skateboarding, you need to be resilient, just like this watch. That is what this piece and I have in common, we are both practically unbreakable and scratch-resistant,” said Eaton with a wink. The timepiece features hands and detailing with luminescent material in a subdued white. Powered by the IWC-manufactured 69385 caliber, the chronograph movement is a classic column-wheel design with a day and date display at 3 o’clock. It is completed with a rubber strap with textile inlay.
