Time Evolution

The diver remains the sports watch of choice, both in and out of the water, thanks to its reliability and masculine good looks. IWC Schaffhausen first introduced a diver watch back in 1967 under the name Aquatimer and continues the tradition to this day.

The diver remains the sports watch of choice, both in and out of the water, thanks to its reliability and masculine good looks. IWC Schaffhausen first introduced a diver watch back in 1967 under the name Aquatimer and continues the tradition to this day.

Following last year’s successful “Cousteau Divers,” the newest addition to the Aquatimer family is the Chronograph Edition Galapagos Islands, a timepiece marking the bicentennial of the great British biologist and behavioral scientist, Charles Darwin, this year. His fundamental observations on the origin of species were conducted mainly on Galapagos, a unique archipelago in the Pacific Ocean.

The water-resistant model is suitable for diving to 12 bar and equipped with a rotating inner bezel used for setting and reading off dive time. Self-winding, the watch offers a 40-hour power reserve when fully wound. Luminescent elements are featured on the hands, dial and rotating inner bezel, and the sapphire glass is anti-reflective on both sides. The matte black stainless steel case, completely coated in vulcanized rubber, frames a black dial with contrasting white indications to dramatic effect.

Throughout 2009, IWC will continue to make both financial and non-material contributions to support the non-profit Charles Darwin Foundation and its worthy conservation endeavors.
