The evolution of the diver’s watches from IWC continues as the Schaffhausen-based watchmaker previews new pieces it plans to debut at the SIHH watch show slated to start January 20 in Geneva.
The 2014 Aquatimer collection from IWC Schaffhausen comes with inspired technical features, even more in-house calibres and a patented IWC bracelet quick-change system. For the first time ever, a haute horlogerie complication in the form of a perpetual calendar with a large digital date display appears in this watch family. Bronze likewise makes its debut as a metal for the case. The Swiss watch manufacturer is also launching four special editions in support of the work of the Charles Darwin Foundation and the Cousteau Society.
Pictured here are three of the models from the new Aquatimer collection including: the Aquatimer Automatic 2000, Aquatimer Chronograph Edition Galapagos Islands – an expression of IWC’s commitment to the threatened archipelago, and the Aquatimer Chronograph Edition Expedition Charles Darwin which utilizes for the first time ever bronze for the watch case.
