The IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition Sharks is a limited edition of IWC’s popular Aquatimer supporting the preservation of the shark population. And as they are an endangered species, it is a good thing brands like IWC and Edox (with the Edox Sharkman I Limited Edition) show efforts to protect nature. 500 pieces will be available. Part of the proceeds from sales of the watch will go to support the Charles Darwin Foundation, which campaigns for the preservation of the shark population in the Galapagos Marine Reserve.
IWC collaborates with art publisher Taschen and the American photographer Michael Muller. Muller, normally shooting celebs, spent a few years under water in a cage to document sharks. The result of his photographical work is compiled in a book which also comes in a cage. And if you buy the IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition Sharks you will get this book with cage for free. It is a limited edition of 1,000 copies with a normal price of 1.250 Euro’s, about 1,365 US dollars. A non-limited version of the book is also available.
The IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition Sharks is another special edition of the Aquatimer Chronograph
This new Aquatimer is basically the same as the IWC Schaffhausen Aquatimer Chronograph Edition “La Cumbre Volcano”. A 44-millimeter diver with chronograph and IWC’s rotating internal and external bezels. This new model has a slate grey dial referring to the skin of sharks. The case back is engraved with hammerhead sharks.
Inside is IWC’s in-house automatic caliber 89365 (89000 family) with integrated fly-back chronograph with column-wheel and vertical clutch. It offers a power-reserve of 68 hours which is enough to spent some time under water. In a cage. Admiring these fascinating predators.
