IWC Unveils Aquatimer Chronograph Edition Jacques-Yves Cousteau Watch

Jun 17, 2010
To mark the 100th birthday of Jacques-Yves Cousteau celebrated on the June 11 2010, IWC Schaffhausen, having long supported the Cousteau Society, has created a fifth special edition dedicated to the legendary ocean explorer - the Aquatimer Chronograph Edition Jacques-Yves Cousteau watch.

The case of the new IWC watch, 44 mm in diameter, is sculptured from stainless steel. It boasts 120-meter water-resistance. You will notice Cousteaus signature on the slate-color dial completed with high-contrast white indices and blue counters.

The case construction of the IWC Jacques-Yves Cousteau watch features a chunky external rotating bezel. You can turn the bezel only anticlockwise to provide the necessary safety, even with gloves on. The 4-mm-wide sapphire glass ring has been provided with six layers of luminescent Super-LumiNova coating for utmost legibility and luminosity under any light conditions, so the watch is a reliable divers watch even when night-diving.

The case-back of the watch holds one more surprise it is engraved with a portrait of Jacques-Yves Cousteau, surrounded by the words A Tribute to J.Y. Cousteau 19102010.

The new IWC watch is equipped with an IWC automatic chronograph movement. The 25-jewel movement, beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, offers a 42-hour power-reserve.

The IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition Jacques- Yves Cousteau watch is presented on a black rubber strap.
