The first IWC Aquatimer Replica Watches appeared on the wrists of divers in 1967. It was IWC’s response to the growing demand for dive watches. Now, 50 years later, it has become one of IWC’s more popular collections.
The IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month Replica Watches UK case measures 49mm wide and has a matte black finish that IWC says closely resembles ceramic. The watch is not only wide, but measures a hefty 19mm in thickness. For these measurements, a light case material was perhaps obligatory. To match the case, the watch will come with a black rubber strap. Water resistance is 100m, which is adequate for swimming and light scuba diving, and the absolute minimum for calling something a dive watch. I feel that as a member of the Aquatimer collection, the watch should have a higher water resistance of at least 200m, but expensive watches with fancy complications such as this should generally be handled with care anyway.
The IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month Fake Watch is a perpetual calendar watch with a twist because the date and month are indicated digitally. The leap year indication is shown digitally too, which is unusual. It is also a flyback chronograph with a 12-hour totalizer at 12 o’clock. At 6 o’clock you have a subsidiary seconds dial.
Since this is an Aquatimer, it also features the IWC SafeDive system, which is an ingenious take on the diving bezel. Owners rotate the bezel like they would on a regular dive watch, but thanks to some clever gearing, this causes the internal bezel to rotate.
Powering the watch is the Caliber 89802, which is self-winding, beats at 4Hz, and has a power reserve of 44 hours. Fake IWC Watches has been using the movement for years in other watches such as the IWC Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month that you will notice has a pretty similar dial design thanks to the movement’s layout. The movement is visible through a sapphire display caseback and some components, like the rotor and certain bridges, have been blackened to match the black case.
All things considered, the Best IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month For Sale is a fitting celebratory piece for the Aquatimer’s 50th anniversary. The use of Ceratanium is apt, considering IWC’s history with titanium and ceramic, and the watch is pretty cool after all. That said, having a perpetual calendar complication in a dive watch is a tad unnecessary, because unless you are Namor the Sub-Mariner, how many people are going to be staying so long in the water that need to tell what day it is?
