IWC Aquatimer Automatic 2000 concentrates all the features of the outstanding diving watches. It costs only $500, almost the same price as Rolex Submariner, but comes with a 2000 meters water resistance capacity. Rolex Submariner is only 300 meters, and Deepsea has 39000 meters waterproof ability. Thus we can see Aquatimer Automatic 2000 comes with big mind, just a model can challenge the whole Rolex Submariner family.
The dial is or else very legible with adequate lume and decorative elements as well. You will find two thrilling components concerning the Aquatimer circumstance which can be new for 2014 and extremely cherished by myself and various IWC fans. Initial will be the ratcheting diver’s bezel. The exterior bezel moves in both of those directions, but mainly because it ratchets, only moving it in one course will move the inner rotating bezel, and that is utilized for timing reasons. It really is a terrific small program, and as soon as you’ve got it heading back again to regular rotating bezels will seem to be a step backwards.
Moreover on the ratcheting “SafeDive” bezel technique, IWC designed a totally updated quick-change system to the strap or bracelet. The system uses a small pusher underneath the strap or bracelet to easily launch it. It works effectively and allows for fast strap variations. It feels solid and operates a great deal superior than before. Also definitely good would be that the system even now employs regular spring bars. It makes it possible for you to definitely use any fitting straps you want. Third-party straps would not have the neat quick-release program but a minimum of you need to use whatever straps you want. Therefore, additionally to possessing a well-engineered quick-change method for IWC straps, you may still use usual third-party straps for those who like.
Inside of the Replica IWC Aquatimer Automatic 2000 view can be an in-house designed IWC calibre 80110 automated motion. Here is the only three-hand version from the new Aquatimer watch family members to have an in-house IWC motion, however you will find other types such as the chronographs that have in-house movement options. Crafted to the architecture with the Valjoux 7750, the 80110 is often a rather reliable work-horse motion and gives 44 hours of power reserve.
The traditional looking black rubber diver’s strap finishes from the theme pretty much. I feel IWC features a winner right here given the overall design and style, features, and concept. Not surprisingly the IWC Aquatimer Computerized 2000 isn’t really cheap and not devoid of its quirks, but I might want to see IWC return to your potent place from the high-end dive observe, given their standard target on legibility and comfort. Value for that ref.
The prototype of IWC Auatimer Automatic 2000 is special professional diving watches for the underwater mine sweepers in last century. It is equipped with durable famous 80110 movement and titanium metal case. It has the best water resistance ability of 2000m from the top IWC watches.
