IWC new watch – Aquatimer Chronograph Reference 3769 – is again on board going to widen the previous timepieces collection IWC Aquatimer Deep Two. Aquatimer Chronograph Reference 3769 fits a manufactory calibre 89360 previously used in the Da Vinci and Ingenieur lines of watches. The improved autowinding system originally created by Albert Pellaton advances the efficiency of the winding system by 30%. The movement based on 40 jewels provides 68 hours of power reserve and oscillates at 28 800 bph.
The chronograph mechanism is equipped with flyback function which is activated by a classical column wheel. Stopped hours and minutes are displayed on a subdial. The chronograph is decentralized and shows the readings at one counter placed at 12 o’clock.
The case with its chunky external rotating bezel is an attention-grabber on land, while the ultra-strong luminescent coating guarantees optimum legibility. The bright red colour accents underscore the sporty character of a diver’s watch tested to pressures of 12 bar. The exclusive IWC-manufactured 89360-calibre movement, equipped with IWC’s efficient double-pawl winding system, has built-in protection against shocks and impacts. Thanks to the brand’s proprietary bracelet quick-change system, developed under a patent license from Cartier the rubber strap with its tough stainless-steel buckle can be quickly exchanged for a hook-and-loop strap without the need for special tools.
The new IWC Aquatimer Chronograph 2009 is housed by a 18K rose gold case measuring 44 mm in diameter and 15.5 mm in height. Black caoutchouc bracelet suits the needs of diving surety. The new timepiece also boasts double sapphire crystal, a rotary bezel also covered with sapphire treatment, luminescent hand and indices.
The description of the new IWC watch says that “with the Aquatimer Chronograph on his wrist, a man can easily change from a diving suit directly into a black tie”. But the water resistance of 120 meters makes the use of the timepiece together with a diving suit rather readly.
