AN EXPEDITION WITH “CAPTAIN” COUSTEAU

Scuba diving pioneer, researcher and film-maker Jacques Cousteau once called the Galapagos Islands the world’s last natural sanctuary. He travelled to the archipelago in the early 1970s for his legendary TV series “The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau”, while his film “The Dragons of Galapagos” familiarized millions of viewers with the mysterious marine iguana. In 1973, he founded the Cousteau Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting maritime life. IWC has been a partner of the Cousteau Society since 2004 and has supported the organization in its work to set up marine conservation zones. This is considered to be one of the most effective methods of protecting the fragile underwater world from over-fishing, poaching and environmental destruction. The Aquatimer Chronograph Edition “Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau” with its traditionally blue dial is already the sixth special edition to bear the name of the famous Frenchman. Identical to the Aquatimer Chronograph in construction, it boasts all the features of a diver’s watch designed for expedition use. The engraving on the back of the cover shows “le Commandant” with his trademark red woollen beanie. Part of the proceeds from every sale goes directly to the Cousteau Society and helps fulfil the legacy of the committed environmentalist.
