For SIHH 2016, IWC Schaffhausen announces a new version of the Aquatimer Automatic 2000 in an eye-catching black-and-yellow combination.
IWC Schaffhausen’s Aquatimer Automatic 2000(Ref. IW358001) sees the launch of a model that now comes with yellow hands and numerals and a black dial. The origins of this timepiece go all the way back to 1982 and a watch designed by Ferdinand A. Porsche for mine clearance divers. Water-resistant to a stunning 2,000 metres, the Aquatimer Automatic 2000 is a serious piece of equipment intended for ambitious amateur and professional divers alike.
Its power comes from an IWC-manufactured 80110-calibre movement with automatic winding and a 44-hour power reserve. The watch has a mechanical external/internal rotating bezel, the SafeDive system and luminescent elements. The movement is housed in a 46-milli metre titanium case. The engraving of a deep-sea diver on the case back and the black rubber strap complete the overall sporty look.
