The Aquatimer Chronograph Story
The distinctly puristic design of the dial and the more reserved choice of colours and shapes reference the look of the first Aquatimer released in 1967 and gives it a more modern reinterpretation. The chronograph function handles single stop times and aggregate timing up to 12 hours and is a reliable companion even on long dives. Even with three subdials and a date and day display, the silver-plated dial is remarkably uncluttered. The external/internal rotating bezel with a SafeDive system designed to prevent inadvertent changes of the dive time boosts the practical use of the diver’s watch, as does the increase in water-resistance to 30 bar. The protective cover for the sliding clutch system at “9 o’clock” blends seamlessly into the overall look of the watch. Ticking away inside the 44-millimetre stainless-steel case is the robust 79320-calibre chronograph movement with a 44-hour power reserve. The watch is supplied with a black rubber strap.
