With the Aquatimer Chronograph in 18-carat red gold on his wrist, a man can change from a diving suit directly into a dinner jacket. The imposing case with its chunky external rotating bezel is an attention-grabber on land, while the ultra-strong luminescent coating under the sapphire-glass ring guarantees optimum legibility – and admiring glances – underwater. The red colour accents underscore the sporty character of a diver’s watch tested to pressures of 12 bar. Thanks to the flyback function, the chronograph can be stopped, reset and restarted, all at the touch of a button. Stopped hours and minutes are displayed on a subdial. The exclusive IWC-manufactured movement from the 89000-calibre family is equipped with IWC’s efficient double-pawl winding system. Thanks to the bracelet quick-change system*, the rubber strap with its tough stainless-steel pin buckle can be exchanged quickly and easily for a hook-and-loop strap without the need for special tools.

The design, which occupied an IWC development team for a full 4 years, was necessitated by a revolutionary chronograph display that enables the user to read off even relatively long periods of stopped times – 8 hours and 52 minutes, for example – at a glance: a circular totalizer combines the hour and minute hands as if they were a watch-within-a-watch. In 2012, it was joined by the newly developed 89365 chronograph movement including a stopwatch function with minutes and seconds as well as a flyback function. After further development, the IWC-manufactured movement was known as the 89800 calibre and used for the big digital date and month displays in References 3761 and 3791. The new Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month comes equipped with a further development on the theme, the 89802 calibre.
