IWC Aquatimer Automatic Edition « Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau »

The Aquatimer Automatic Edition “Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau” is the latest special edition produced in honour of the French scuba-diving pioneer.

Last December, IWC unveiled three new watches to its diver’s watches. We have already presented the Aquatimer Chronograph Edition “La Cumbre Volcano" dedicated to the eponymous volcano in the Galapagos Islands and the Aquatimer Automatic 2000 in a black-and-yellow combination. We focus today on the third and last addition: the Aquatimer Automatic Edition “Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau”.

With the Aquatimer Automatic Edition “Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau” (Ref. IW329005), IWC continues its series of special editions in honour of the French diving pioneer and oceanographer. As a partner of the Cousteau Society, the Schaffhausen-based watch manufacturer contributes to the restoration of Cousteau’s famous research vessel, the Calypso, among other things. The watch has a stunning, deep blue dial and the design is unmistakably purist. The engraving on the stainless- steel case back shows “le Commandant” Jacques-Yves Cousteau with his trademark beanie. Water-resistant to 30 bar, the timepiece has automatic winding and a power reserve of 42 hours. Features also include the mechanical external/internal rotating bezel, the SafeDive system and luminescent elements.
