Presented at SIHH 2014, Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, the IWC replica Aquatimer Automatic 2000 is the finest specimen of the new Aquatimer generation.
The Aquatimer prototype was built in 1982 as a watch for divers who specialize in disassembling underwater mines and was designed by the legendary Ferdinand A. Porsche. The non-military version, the replica IWC watches Ocean 2000, was the first watch resistant to 200 atmospheres of pressure, that is, 2000 meters deep and is still disputed by collectors.
Later versions such as GST Aquatimer and Aquatimer 2000 have also been magnificent examples and essential instruments for seasoned professional divers as well as the dream of amateur consumption.
The new replica IWC Aquatimer Automatic 2000, reference 3580, is currently an extremely necessary backup for underwater missions.
With a titanium box of 46 mm in diameter, the Aquatimer Automatic 2000 has a clean and very readable dial, and was equipped with the 80110 movement. The rotating bezel with SafeDive system can be easily rotated even with the use of gloves. Its rubber strap is available up to XXL size and can be worn over gloves or neoprene clothing.
