Since 2014, with the Aquatimer Chronograph Edition “Expedition Charles Darwin”, IWC added the first model in a bronze case to its range. The choice of bronze pays homage to Darwin’s well-known survey vessel, HMS Beagle: in those days, bronze – which is resistant to seawater – was used for portholes, fittings and nautical instruments. In the course of time, and depending on how it is used, bronze takes on a patina and darkens in colour. This gives the watch its unmistakable character. Likewise unmistakable and marked by a history of change is the active volcano La Cumbre on the island of Fernandina, which last erupted in 2009. Now IWC Schaffhausen is dedicating a special diver’s watch to this impressive force of nature: the Aquatimer Chronograph Edition “La Cumbre Volcano”. The unusual back engraving shows the volcano during an eruption with an enormous cloud of ash. The warm feel of the rubber coating on the stainless-steel case makes the watch very pleasant to wear. Part of the proceeds will go to the Charles Darwin Foundation (CDF), which is dedicated to the preservation of the Galapagos Islands and has worked with IWC Schaffhausen since 2009. The Aquatimer Chronograph Edition “Galapagos Islands” with its matte-black rubber coating likewise acknowledges the partnership with the CDF. The aim of the Galapagos scientific centre is to research the indigenous flora and fauna, both on land and at sea, and to save the Galapagos from total destruction. All three watches are fitted with the IWC-manufactured 89365 movement and have all the innovative features of the current Aquatimer generation.
