Established in the 1800's, IWC is known as a watch brand that makes uniquely designed, complicated yet elegant timepieces. Being an integrated brand, IWC both creates and assembles all parts of a watch in-house. Known throughout the globe for its consistent technological developments, the brand is the force behind the anti-magnetic and anti-gravity movements.
Aquatimer Chronograph Blue IW376711 is a mens professional divers’ watch that features a stainless steel case, 44 mm in diameter and 14 mm in thickness. Complimented with a solid case back, a unidirectional rotating divers’ bezel that is luminescent and a screw-in crown, the timepiece has an elegant feel to it. Its round, dial is blue in colour covered by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass that is complimented with a blue rubber strap which is adjustable with a pin and tang buckle. The dial features stick style luminescent hand and markers that ensure enhanced visibility in the dark and under water. The bezel that is blue and white in colour, has clear numbering and a high-quality Super-LumiNova that gives it a striking face and elegant style. The luminescent bezel, hands and markers ensure clear visibility even during night-time dives.
Equipped with a Swiss made automatic, self-winding movement, the timepiece does not require regular winding. It is water-resistant to a depth of 120 meters. This watch also sports a chronograph stopwatch function and an automatic day and date function located at the 3 o’clock position in the dial. The dial features 3 sub-dials located at the 6 o’clock, 9 o’clock and 12 o’clock positions exhibiting hour, minutes and seconds counters.
1967 saw the birth of the pioneer IWC Schaffhausen Aquatimer watch which had impressive specifications for its time, sporting an internal rotating bezel and water-resistance up to 20 bar. The consecutive launches of GST Deep One, Two and Three have seen remarkable technology being implemented in this diver’s collection of watches. The GST Deep One was the inaugural watch featuring a mechanical depth gauge in the IWC brand.
Aquatimer Deep Three lays down formidable competition to other watches in the form of an external rotating bezel cut from Sapphire glass which has a coating of Super-LumiNova on the underside. The Aquatimer 2014 collection gives off a more sophisticated and purist air using only subdued colours. An ingenious mechanism called the SafeDive system has been introduced in the new collection which consists of the internal/external rotating bezel. This ensures that dive time is not exceeded even if the external bezel is accidentally moved, as the internal bezel only sustains anti-clockwise movement. These watches lay claim to not only being one of the best diver watches around, but also are prominent at special occasions and office wear.
In keeping with the true diver spirit and generosity, the IWC Aquatimer has through the ages extensively supported the Charles Darwin Foundation and the Charles Darwin Research station. The collection also enjoys a deep connection to Jacques Cousteau, researcher and film-maker, whose extensive work on the Galapagos marine Iguanas is widely acclaimed and watched. The Aquatimer Chronograph Edition ‘Expedition Charles Darwin’ was launched to commemorate the veteran naturalist’s findings in biodiversity at the Galapagos Islands. Showcasing deep attachment to the ocean and its accessories, bronze has been used to make the watch case for the first time in this company. It was commonly used in alloy form in building ships in the 19th century. This collection has seen diversity in the form of myriad fans at its famed launches such as American actor and director, Kevin Spacey, Czech model and actress, Karolina Kurkorva, Portuguese footballer, Luis Figo, Swiss professional road bicycle racer, Fabian Cancellara, to name a few.
Hollywood star Ewan McGregor delivered a soulful opening line at the launch of the new Aquatimer collection, ‘14 in Geneva – ‘Time may be a gift, but it is a priceless one’. The celebration named ‘Inside the wave’ took its audience on an enthralling journey below the ocean surface. The stars of the show were the Cirque du Soleil, the largest theatrical producer in the world.
