IWC is back in action with several releases across their various collections. We recently talked about a pair of Portugieser, plus there were many additions to the Pilot’s series. Now the permanent Aquatimer collection has been updated with a new caliber movement. As for aesthetics a quick look at this new release will have you convinced nothing has changed, but under the hood is where they choose to upgrade.The 42mm case is made of stainless-steel with a few polished accents, but an overall polished finish in contrasting radial or vertical directions. Mounted to the case is a special combination internal/external SafeDive system bezel for timing dives. On the flip-side is a screw on steel case back with a circular grained finished center, while the outer circumference has a lighter finish and technical inscriptions.It comes equipped with a knurled screw-in crown, embossed with the IWC logo. All topped by a convex sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating. Water-resistance can reach up to 300 meters (984 feet).Time is exhibited on a black or blue sun-ray dial with white hour index markers, followed by a ring of smaller minute markings. Under the sapphire crystal we can see the inner rotating elapsed time ring, which is controlled by the external bezel.They are both linked together by a series of gears concealed under a cap on the case, located at the 9 o’clock position. The central hands and hour index markers, as well as some of the bezel markers have undergone a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility. There is also a discreet date window located at the 3 o’clock position.
