The renowned IWC Aquatimer watches are intended to be fashionable and long-lasting while also being easy to wear. Their materials are titanium and stainless steel, very tough and light. Watches do eventually cause muscle fatigue, although not enough for most people to notice. You will find that an IWC Aquatimer is much lighter than your current watch and the difference is highly noticeable. The titanium and/or stainless steel cases have a brushed finish to reduce glare and the appearance of small scratches, and are carefully designed and intended to have these effects. The pieces fit very closely in these cases as a lot of effort goes into the assembling of components and cases, meaning they are milled, drilled, and turned instead of being stamped. For example, the crown is a very tight fit so that it will never wobble in any given situation or stting.

Unique Kit and Bezel Features

Another noteworthy feature is the convex sapphire crystal, combined with a black background, and steel indices and hands, makes for an easily readable watch. With perfectly applied luminescent material, meaning no bleeding, blotching or holes. Some of the Aquatimer dive watches use tritium, and some use super Luminova, though a few use a combination of both. Tritium is radioactive and should be used in small amounts, but glows constantly. Super Luminova is not radioactive but only glows for 4 or 5 hours. Making use of a combination of both is an idea worthy of high praise. The dial is not too big, but is big enough that there is no question as to the exact time.

To their Aquatimer 2000m watches IWC introduced many interesting features. Before it can turn, the bezel must be pushed down on both sides. This is done as a safety precaution in case something accidentally turns the bezel. The ability to remove it to clean it is another feature of the bezel which is worth noting down. Eventually, dirt from the material will build up underneath the bezel whenever the watch is in use. So instead of having to send your watch to be cleaned or repaired, you can simply repair and clean it yourself just by removing the screws holding the bezel in place, this saves both time and money. The IWC Aquatimer watches are made differently from ones made specifically for a line of watches by adding kits with their own parts so that you do not have to replace or buy a whole new watch if something gets missing. This is also done to ensure that the dive watch you purchased maintains its quality features and to make sure it can endure the same conditions the rest of the watch was made to withstand.

The Bracelets

Tear resistant Velcro and metal link bracelet are the two bands that are common for diving which IWC makes. With the bracelet, you can add or remove links, but the only downfall is that it is easy to scratch. However, apart from these two common dive bands, the rubber bracelets which they manufacture make superb dive bands as well. The IWC Aquatimer 2000 has a design where the bracelet tapers off as it nears the clasp so that it doesn’t interfere with wrist movement. You can purchase the diving strap directly from IWC, and, unlike other straps, it doesn’t rub the skin.

IWC Aquatimer watches are the leaders in the dive watch industry. Satisfied customers describe them as sleek, strong and comfortable. IWC has truly met and exceeded expectations with the design and technology applied to their watches. It is easy to see why when customers want to choose a stylish yet dependable underwater watch, they choose IWC. The main purpose of the design of the watch was durability as well as comfort, and the IWC Aquatimer watches have managed to attain exactly that and more.
