AT THE CUTTING EDGE DOWN TO 2000 METRES

The prototype was built in 1982 as a watch for mine clearance divers and designed by the legendary Ferdinand A. Porsche. The version for non-military use, the Ocean 2000, was the first watch with a pressure-resistance of 200 bar and was much coveted by collectors. Subsequent models, namely the GST Aquatimer and the Aquatimer Automatic 2000, were one thing above all: first-class diving instruments for professionals and ambitious amateurs. The new Aquatimer Automatic 2000 is a reliable backup system, even for the most exacting underwater missions. With its titanium case, the watch harks back to the origins of the reference models. The case has grown in size to 46 millimetres, making the dial more legible and leaving enough room for the robust IWC-manufactured 80110 movement. The chunky external rotating bezel can be adjusted easily even when wearing gloves and, as the name SafeDive system suggests, offers the diver a very high level of security. The rubber strap is available optionally in an XXL version and can be worn over a neoprene suit or a drysuit. For the designers, only one motif was thought appropriate for the engraving on the back of the cover: the classic diving helmet worn by deep-sea divers.

With 200-bar water-resistance, the Aquatimer Automatic 2000 in titanium upholds IWC Schaffhausen’s tradition of building watches with very high pressure-resistance for professional and ambitious amateur divers. Apart from the Ocean 2000 (1982), its legendary predecessors include the GST Aquatimer (1998) and the Aquatimer Automatic 2000 (2004 and 2009).
