IWC: Aquatimer Chronograph Edition "Galapagos Islands"

IWC confirms its commitment to the preservation of the threatened Galapagos Islands with this first edition to be driven by the IWC-manufactured chronograph movement. Part of the proceeds from sales benefit the Charles Darwin Foundation. The mat black rubber coating on the stainless steel case, a particular feature of this watch, is applied in a complex vulcanisation process during which each case is placed in a mould and bonded to the rubber by pressure.
