IWC Aquatimer Replica Watches In Three New Designs For 2016

The first of these models is the 44mm IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition “La Cumbre Volcano”. While I do not consider myself to be a “chronograph guy,” this one caught my eye due to the A-Team color scheme used on it. Yeah, as a diver, this particular model may not be the most legible under water, but it is pretty stunning, with the crisp blacked-out dial accented by the red on the internal bezel and handset. It joins the increasingly busy IWC Aquatimer Chronograph special editions that tribute the Galapagos.

This particular IWC Aquatimer is pulling its name from the La Cumbra volcano on Fernadina island in the Galapagos. Why the Galapagos? IWC has been working with the Charles Darwin Foundation to help preserve the environment there. Just as the resources in those islands are a bit limited, this particular Cheap IWC Replica is of a limited nature as well, with only 500 pieces of the rubber-coated watch being produced. A portion of proceeds will go to the Darwin Foundation to help in their efforts.

On the other hand, if you want to do some really deep diving, then the new 46mm IWC Aquatimer Automatic 2000 in black and yellow is what you want. Yeah, that’s right – this bad boy carries a 2000m WR rating, and though it’s not a new watch, the bold yellow really makes this one stand out and have an almost “radioactive” color palette.This particular IWC Replica Watches Aquatimer recalls the watches designed back in 1982 by Ferdinand A. Porsche for mine clearance divers. I told you this watch was a dangerous one! This one also features an internal/external timing bezel on the titanium case. It is a hefty case so it’s helpful that it is not steel.

Finally, we are brought to the IWC Aquatimer Automatic Edition “Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau”, which joins the aforementioned, existing IWC Aquatimer Chronograph in tributing Cousteau. This is much more compact than the IWC Aquatimer 2000, measuring in at 42mm and only 14mm thick; the water resistance rating drops back to 300m as well. Of the three new watches, I think this one is my favorite, given the striking shade of blue that is utilized for the dial. Like with the Darwin Foundation, no word is given as to what portion of this watch’s proceeds go to the Cousteau Society – IWC Replica Watches UK is an active supporter of the foundation, helping with such things as restoring the Calypso. Note that this isn’t the first IWC Aquatimer honoring Cousteau, as there is also an existing Chronograph version.

1875
As with the other IWC Aquatimer models, the IWC Aquatimer Automatic Edition “Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau” features the same internal/external timing bezel, and overall familial looks across the line. All three models also feature IWC-manufactured movements: the 89365 chrono, 80110 for the IWC Aquatimer 2000, and the 30120 for the Luxury Fake Watches edition. While I certainly have written up these new models with tongue firmly planted in my cheek, there is no doubt that these new IWC Aquatimer models are impressive machines to accompany you on a dive.

IWC Pilot’s Replica Watch Timezoner Chronograph

After IWC’s purchase of Vogard’s patent on their TimeZoner watch in late 2014, we are now seeing their world time watch with the IWC Pilot’s Watch Timezoner chronograph. A rotating bezel allows the wearer to easily change timezones, and we assume the feature will find a lot more mainstream success with IWC’s marketing machine behind it. It’s also important to note that this watch also borrows the Cheap IWC Replica rotating bezel. What this means is that there’s a quasi-internal bezel that is controlled by moving the outer bezel. Functionally, this translates to the inner bezel revolving the opposite direction as the outer bezel. What this results in is the ability to show a new timezone and time of day with a turn of the bezel.

The watch isn’t as small as some of the other Pilot’s Watches of this year at 45mm wide and 16.5mm high on the wrist. Available in stainless steel, the watch is water resistant to 60 meters. Aesthetically, I love the black and white dial with red splash on the second time zone hand. Legibility looks great and it actually seems like the wearer would be able to take advantage of the watch’s functions with relative ease. Another feature of this watch is the ability to read the hours and minutes recorded by the chronograph on the totalizer at 12 o’clock, with stop times up to 60 seconds shown by the central chronograph hand. A flyback function allows the wearer to set the chronograph back to zero and start a new timing sequence immediately. A cool little feature IWC Replica Watches has patented is a small “S” on the rotating bezel that indicates if a city recognizes summertime (daylight saving). This deals with the annoying fact of cities jumping ahead or going back a few hours, which would certainly provide a headache for someone wearing a world timer.

Taking a look at the back of the case, there’s a simple stainless steel case back with a depiction of a Junkers Ju 52 plane. Back in the 1930s this was the most common civilian aircraft, so it’s easy to see why IWC Replica Watches UK chose it for their TimeZoner.

1870
The IWC Timezoner Chronograph features the new automatic 89760 calibre movement, which operates at 4 Hz and has a power reserve of 68 hours. In line with most of the new Luxury Fake Watches collection, the Timezoner will come on a calfskin strap.
