IWC: Aquatimer Automatic

The new Aquatimer Automatic from IWC makes no secret of its vintage inspiration. The purist dial and dive time scale with 15-minute graduations on the internal rotating bezel recall the very first Aquatimer from 1967, while the narrow, sloping external rotating bezel and the rounded, recessed grips refer back to the Ocean 2000, a 1982 model designed by Ferdinand A. Porsche. The external/internal rotating bezel is an innovative new feature.
