The IWC Aquatimer Chrono-Automatic brings the famed technical mastery of IWC to the highly competitive field of luxury dive watches. Featuring a unique internal rotating bezel system in combination with a chronograph that is fully protected against water intrusion without the need for any screwed pushers, the IWC Aquatimer Chrono-Automatic is an outstanding instrument with great style.
The movement of the IWC Aquatimer Chrono-Automatic is the automatic-winding caliber 79320, which has been completely optimized by IWC for both efficient operation and precision. The chronograph mechanism of the Aquatimer Chrono-Automatic watch can measure elapsed minutes and hours; its operation is easy and intuitive.
The lower button, a perfect example of IWC’s innovative engineering—performs two functions with equal aplomb: When it is turned, the unidirectional internal rotating bezel can be set to record elapsed dive times; when it is pushed, a transmission wheel disengages the rotating bezel and it functions as a traditional chronograph reset button sending the stopped chronograph hand back to its starting position. An easily adjusted day and date display is another useful indication that this watch provides.
The IWC Aquatimer Chrono-Automatic watch is available in either stainless steel or titanium, with the choice of a matching metal bracelet featuring the unique IWC adjustment system, or a rubber strap. The massive and flawlessly machined case of the Aquatimer Chrono-Automatic is water resistant to a depth of 120 meters, ensuring safety during a dive as well as offering the rugged construction that is ideal for the adventurous lifestyle relished by IWC wearers.
