The watch's purist design accentuates the mechanical external/internal rotating bezel with the SafeDive system.
The watch has a striking deep blue dial with rhodium-plated hands and indices, both with a white luminescent coating.
The engraving on the case back shows "Commandant" Jacques Cousteau with his trademark beanie.
The rugged cliffs running along the coast, where the glittering silver Pacific crashes onto the jet-black igneous rock, is probably the most typical view of the Galapagos Islands. IWC’s designers took much of their inspiration for the colour scheme of the Aquatimer Automatic in stainless steel from this meeting of the elements. The basic model in the Aquatimer family comes with a black or silver-plated dial, complete with a matching black rubber strap or stainless-steel bracelet. In the version with the black dial, the dive-related displays are coated with luminescent green Super-LumiNova®*. The model with the silver-plated dial looks particularly elegant: the colour of the inlaid luminescent material is slightly more discreet, which does not detract from its legibility in the dark or in adverse visibility conditions. This year, they are joined by the Aquatimer Automatic Edition “Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau”. The blue of the dial is the same as the chronograph that bears the commandant’s name. Like all the models in the collection, the Aquatimer Automatic is equipped with the innovative external/internal rotating bezel with the SafeDive system. With a case measuring just 42 millimetres in diameter, the Aquatimer Automatic is the smallest member of the diver’s watch family and its dial the most purist.

With the Aquatimer Automatic Edition “Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau”, IWC continues its series of special editions in honour of the French diving pioneer and oceanographer. With this watch IWC is contributing among other things to the restoration of Cousteau’s research vessel, the Calypso.
