IWC Aquatimer Steel 42mm
IWC Aquatimer steel 42mm. The rugged cliffs running along the coast, where the glittering silver Pacific crashes onto the jet-black igneous rock, is probably the most typical view of the Galapagos Islands. IWC’s designers took much of their inspiration for the color scheme of the new Aquatimer automatic in stainless steel from this meeting of the elements. The basic model in the Aquatimer family comes with a black or silver-plated dial, complete with a matching black rubber strap or stainless-steel bracelet. In the version with the black dial, the dive-related displays are coated with luminescent green Super-LumiNova®*. The model with the silver-plated dial looks particularly elegant: the color of the inlaid luminescent material is slightly more discreet, which does not detract from its legibility in the dark or adverse visibility conditions. The clear-cut design of the watch, which has just three hands, likewise makes underwater orientation faster and simpler. Like all the models in the new collection, the Aquatimer automatic is equipped with the innovative external/internal rotating bezel featuring the SafeDive system. With a case measuring just 42 millimeters in diameter, the Aquatimer Automatic is the smallest model in the diver’s watch family, and it’s dial the most purist.
