Aquatimer Chronograph Edition “Expedition Charles Darwin”

Gazing through the bronze peepholes on board HMS Beagle, the revolutionary scientist Charles Darwin travelled to the Galapagos Islands in 1835 to study their unique flora and fauna. 180 years have passed and IWC is paying tribute to the expedition and the work of the British naturalist with an Aquatimer model. Solid and waterproof to 300m, the 44mm case is made of bronze, a highly rust-resistant metal alloy; it features an outer rotating bezel whilst the chapter ring features a graduated inner bezel. The self-winding in-house calibre brings to life the time functions (hours and minutes in the middle, small seconds at 6 o’ clock), chronograph (central seconds and 1-hour counter at 12 o’ clock) and date display (at 3 o’ clock). The movement provides a 68-hour power reserve. Most of the features on the dial, namely the indices and hands, have a luminescent coating. Price: 10,800 CHF
