The Watch

Here we have a 2009 IWC Aquatimer 2000 Automatic Tritium IW353602 with a 42mm stainless steel case that curves over your wrist with thick dilled angled lugs, IWC released this professional dive watch in 1998 and its specification was developed with the help of experienced divers.¬†A lug-to-lug length of 49mm and a case thickness of 14mm give the watch an impressive wrist presence. On the right side a signed screw-down crown with deep knurling for extra grip. The stainless steel ‚Äúpush down and turn‚ÄĚ bezel has deep knurling and a textured dive insert with embossed numerals and markings holding a 3.2mm thick sapphire crystal, convex on one side above a black dial. An outer minute track is precisely executed with applied baton indexes infilled with Tritium marking the hours, at 3 o‚Äôclock a date window, broad baton hands are infilled with Tritium complemented by a tapered sweeping second hand. At 12 o‚Äôclock we have the IWC motif and at 6 o‚Äôclock ‚Äú2000 Automatic Aquatimer‚ÄĚ completes this versatile sports dive watch. On the reverse a screw-down case back with an embossed submarine and wave pattern, a nod to the incredible water resistance.¬†The watch comes fitted on its original integrated 16mm brushed stainless steel bracelet with a signed folding clasp, and the watch comes with its IWC presentation box,¬†bracelet pushers¬†and paperwork.


Personal Note

The Aquatimer is another watch that goes highly underappreciated in the watch world, meaning it sells for a great price on the secondary market for the amount of watch you get! The tritium dial and hands are ageing beautifully and starting to develop a gentle patina, I suspect in a few more years of regular wear and contact with UV it will become an incredibly deep tone! Though, time will tell...


The Brand

In 1867 Florentine applied for a European passport with the dream of creating watches using the American system of Watchmaking. This system was taken from the Federal Armories at Springfield and Harpers Ferry. Where armaments needed high-precision interchangeable parts. This was perfect to use in watchmaking and Florentine was a pioneer in introducing it to the Swiss. In 1868 Florentine and Charles Kidder ended up in Schaffhausen Switzerland. Originally called the company F. A Jones & Co which was later changed to IWC International Watch Company. In 1876 Florentine returned to the USA where he retired and sadly passed away in 1916. The spirit which he spent a lifetime perfecting carries on today in the modern IWC watches.
