IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Stainless
IWC Aquatimer chronograph stainless. In the early 1970s, scuba diving pioneer, researcher and filmmaker Jacques Cousteau’s film “The Dragons of Galapagos” familiarized millions of viewers with the mysterious marine iguana. In 1973, he founded the Cousteau Society, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting maritime life. IWC has been a partner of the Cousteau Society since 2004 and has supported the organization in its work to set up marine conservation areas. The Aquatimer Chronograph Edition “Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau” with its traditionally silver dial is already the sixth special edition to bear the name of the famous Frenchman. The engraving on the back of the cover shows “le Commandant” with his trademark woolen beanie. Part of the proceeds from every sale goes directly to the Cousteau Society. The watch devoted to Cousteau is technically identical to the Aquatimer Chronograph. The innovative external/internal rotating bezel with a safe dive system designed to prevent inadvertent changes of the dive time boosts the practical use of the diver’s watch, as does the increase in water-resistance from 12 to 30 bar. The chronograph function supports stop times and aggregate timing up to 12 hours. The push-buttons can also be used under water. The distinctly purist design of the dial recalls the look of the first Aquatimers in 1967 and gives it a more modern reinterpretation.
