IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau Ref. IW370805 – 44mm
The IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau (a mouthful) is a special edition, based on the Aquatimer Chronograph. It features a recognizable blue dial that previous „Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau” also had. It commemorates Cousteau’s fantastic voyages and films that made millions aware of the beauty of the underwater world. His movies educated people around the world, about the underwater world, in times that most people didn’t have a clue about what was going on under that blue surface.
Let’s start with the obvious: it’s a dive watch, it’s robust, it feel robust, it features a chronograph and it has a depth rating of 300 meters. The chronograph, with central second hand, 30-minute register at 12 o’clock and 12-hour register at 6 o’clock, is operated by pushers at 2 and 4 o’clock. At 3 o’clock is a day and date indication and the continuous second indication is the small orange hand at 9 o’clock.
Another new feature that can be found on the new Aquatimer family of watches, is the IWC bracelet quick-change system. The well-known system with spring bars is easily accessible with a spring bar tool, and has more solidity with the additional metal clamp. This may look insignificant, however if you have tried to change a rubber strap before, you know how much fidgeting it takes before you finally can remove the strap. The new bracelet quick-change system might not look like something very special, in reality it’s a vast improvement.
