Aquatimer Automatic 2000
The Aquatimer Chronograph Edition "Galapagos Islands" commemorates the partnership established in 2009 with the Charles Darwin Foundation. On behalf of the Foundation, hundreds of scientists, students, teachers and volunteers from all over the world work at the Charles Darwin Research Station. Part of the proceeds from sales of the Galapagos editions has traditionally gone to the Charles Darwin Foundation.
Pressure-resistant to 30 bar, this diver's watch comes with the IWC-manufactured 89365-calibre movement, IWC SafeDive system and flyback function.
A complex vulcanization process gives the stainless-steel case a matte black rubber coating.
Since 2009, IWC has released a series of Galapagos special editions that are dedicated to research and the protection of the archipelago.
A watch with a great look and feel: black as the lava on the volcanic islands, and white as the mist in which they are often shrouded.
The Galapagos marine iguana, a familiar hallmark of the archipelago, features in the elaborate engraving on the back of the watch.
The matte black rubber coating on the stainless-steel case is a special feature of the Galapagos edition. It is applied in a complex vulcanization process and gives the watches an attractive look and feel of their own. For the first time ever, IWC presents two new Galapagos models simultaneously that are dedicated to the research and protection of the archipelago. The Aquatimer Chronograph Edition “Galapagos Islands” is an annual tribute to the partnership, established in 2009, with the Charles Darwin Foundation. Over 50 years, hundreds of scientists, students, teachers and volunteers from all over the world have been working on behalf of the Foundation at the Charles Darwin Research Station. The goal for the Galapagos scientific centre is to research the indigenous fauna and flora and to save the Galapagos, a World Heritage site, from destruction. The Station trains national park guides, organizes seminars, publishes the findings of its research and collects donations. With its Aquatimer Chronograph Edition “50 Years Science for Galapagos”, available in a limited edition of 500 watches, IWC is paying a tribute to the 50th jubilee of the Charles Darwin Research Station. Traditionally, part of the proceeds from sales of the Galapagos editions has always gone to the Charles Darwin Foundation. Both watches are fitted with the reliable IWC-manufactured 89365-calibre movement and come equipped with all the features that make the new Aquatimer Chronographs so attractive for expeditions above and below the surface: external/internal rotating bezel with SafeDive system, integrated flyback function, water-resistance to 30 bar and Super-LumiNova®* luminescent coating.
