When Schaffhausen IWC launched the Aquatimer series in 1967 for the first time, its water resistance of 20 bar caused a sensation. Diving was still an emerging sport at that time, and the name of the marine timepiece has become the code name for diving. In this regard, this is still the case today.
的 The diver’s watch from Schaffhausen uses the new Aquatimer 2000 automatic watch as the basic style, which has changed to a new shape and also reached its peak. This not only refers to its ability to withstand pressures up to 200 bar, but also to its 44 mm enlarged case diameter. Because in the water, the larger size means clearer reading. The newly developed rotating diving outer ring replaces the previous inner ring and is the main feature of the new face of the 2010 Aquatimer series. From a technical point of view, the new Aquatimer 2000 automatic watch-like its predecessor-is equipped with the reliable 30110 automatic movement. The watch has a date display, which can be pulled out (normal operation is screwed in) to stop the second hand for adjustment.
Both models have bracelets and straps to choose from: the practical and sturdy IWC stainless steel bracelet system, or the black rubber strap with pin buckle. The new Aquatimer series also uses an innovative quick-change system for the bracelet: the lock on the inside of the bracelet or the strap can be opened by pressing with your finger, so that the bracelet or strap can be replaced in seconds. The same method can be used to match the buckle type extension strap to easily wear the watch outside the wetsuit.
