The story behind the IWC Schaffhausen Aquatimer
The Aquatimer collection was launched in 1967 to coincide with an increase in the popularity of scuba diving. Like the current models, the original Aquatimer featured an internally rotating bezel for measuring dive times. It wasn’t until 1982 that IWC Schaffhausen produced their first watch with an external rotating bezel which was highly luminous and water resistant to 2000 metres. The spirit of this watch lives on today with the Automatic 2000. The Aquatimer collection also features chronographs available to buy from The Watch Gallery in black or blue with a choice of steel bracelet or rubber strap.
