IWC Aquatimer 2000 Luxury Watch Review

In 2014, IWC introduced the completely re-designed IWC Aquatimer Replica Watches collection, with the Aquatimer 2000 as its most performance-oriented representative: its 2,000-meter water-resistance, titanium case, in-house IWC 80110 caliber, and new “SafeDive” bezel system made it one of the most interesting dive watch releases of that year.

But what may be the most interesting fact about the Aquatimer 2000 is that it still offers the same 2,000-meter water-resistance as its predecessors did: Compared to the 44-mm version of the IWC Replica Watches, for example, which offers nearly twice as much water-resistance, the current IWC Aquatimer had to overcome at least two completely different obstacles in order to remain as water-resistant as before.
First, IWC increased the diameter of the case from 44 to 46 mm, which automatically affected the diameter of the sapphire crystal as well. Then, Replica Watches UK added the new bezel system, which not only meant that the dive scale would be covered by the crystal, but – as you might have figured out by now — also meant the crystal had to be substantially larger than what one would normally want to be faced with when given the task to design an ultra water-resistant watch case.

This not only explains why IWC could not increase the water-resistance from 2,000 to 4,000 meters as initially planned, but also why the new Luxury Fake Watches Aquatimer 2000’s case turned out to be more than 20 mm in height and also features one of the largest sapphire crystals currently available in an ultra-deep dive watch.
So, even though the modern Cheap IWC Replica may not have broken another record in terms of water resistance, it remains a technical milestone simply by upholding a record that was set 30 years before.

Vintage Eye for the Modern Guy: IWC Aquatimer Automatic Replica

The IWC Aquatimer, founded originally as a line of Super Compressor-style watches in 1967, was a series of casual diving pieces developed by IWC to cater to the growing hobby of recreational diving.However, while the piece was unique in its own right, the popularity of the Super Compressor style of watches was slowly by the 1970s. Thus, Cheap IWC Replica has drastically revamped the Aquatimer line on multiple occasions over the years, finally settling on a style, in the late ‘90s and early ‘00s, that brings us closest to the familiar Aquatimer produced by the brand today. The modern design, notable through a variety of distinct elements, does continue to pay subtle homage towards its almost half-century history, albeit largely shrouded behind the timepiece’s more contemporary features.

The watch uses an IWC-developed technology called a SafeDive system, which explains what appears to be a second crown of the left side of the case, but is actually a part of a larger pinion system that helps integrate the internal and external rotating-bezel system. The purpose of this system is to combine the benefits of an internal bezel, with the benefits of an external bezel.Taking a closer look at the black or silver-plated dial, you will notice the internal rotating bezel we discussed before, visible tick marks for the hour indices, and a relatively large IWC Replica Aquatimer Watches logo toward the 12 o’clock mark. You should also notice the subtle date indicator at the 3 o’clock mark, the wide hour and minute hands, and the arrow-pointer seconds hand.As the Aquatimer is one of the more modern-looking pieces in IWC’s collection, some of its historical features and inspirations may not be as obvious compared to those of other watches.

Note the design of the hour markers, specifically how the early models used double tick marks whereas the contemporary reference follows the same aesthetic but without two separate applied indices for each hour. Also take notice of the general attributes of the lugs, strap, and dial features, all of which display commonalities between the vintage and modern versions. The lugs, while shorter in the modern Replica Watches UK, still maintain a slight angle when integrating with the strap. The strap itself is still available in rubber, with almost the same pattern as the original.What is interesting about the modern Luxury Fake Watches Aquatimer is how historically disconnected it might seem from its historical lineage at first glance, yet has really taken many of its original elements and steadily adjusted them toward more contemporary tastes. We see this reflected in the increase of the case size, from around 37 mm to 42 mm in diameter; in the modern inner/outer bezel system; and in several other slight changes that characterize this modern watch.
