Of the diver’s chronographs, the Aquatimer Chronograph in red gold stands out particularly in both visual and horological terms.
It is the first watch in the Aquatimer family to be equipped with the IWC manufactured 89360 calibre, the chronograph movement developed and built in its entirety by IWC. It is distinguished by its flyback function and the two-hand display of the long stop times on a single inner dial.
The 89360 calibre movement, wound by the IWC double pawl automatic winding system, is currently regarded as one of the most modern mechanical movements with a stop function, which can also be observed through the sapphire glass back in this sportingly elegant diver’s watch.
This Aquatimer Chronograph, which is pressure-resistant to 12 bar, is only available in a 44-mm diameter red gold case with a black rubber strap featuring stainless-steel pin buckle.
Thanks to the bracelet quick-change system, the strap can be exchanged quickly and easily for a hook-and-loop strap without the need for special tools.
