2014 IWC SIHH booth
This year at SIHH, IWC debuted a completely redesigned Aquatimer collection. The Aquatimer is the brand’s dive watch line that originally dates back to 1967. In addition to meeting all of the ISO 6425 dive watch requirements, two features which set the 2014 Aquatimers apart from other dive watches, are its new patented bracelet quick-change system and new internal/external dive bezel with sliding clutch.

IWC will launch an entirely redesigned lineup of Aquatimers next month at SIHH 2014. There will be more models with in-house movements, as well as more complicated models, such as a Perpetual Calendar with Digital Date-Month (in a 49 mm case). There is a also a limited edition diver called the Aquatimer Chronograph Charles Darwin (in a bronze case). The deep diver in the collection, the Aquatimer 2000, is capable of depths down to 2,000 meters, and comes with an in-house caliber 80110 which utilizes the same gear train as a Valjoux 7750.

Mercedes Benz has had a longstanding relationship with IWC which includes the making of special edition timepieces — like this one — that pay homage to the automaker, as well as dashboard clocks made by IWC in a number of Mercedes over the years. Today, with the announcement of the 2014 Mercedes Benz S63 AMG 4MATIC, IWC is inside yet another Mercedes.
The Ingenieur is undeniably one of IWC Schaffhausen’s most iconic designs. And so, without a major redesign in a number of years, it came as no surprise to us earlier this year when they launched multiple new versions at SIHH. In fact, the collection was their main focus for this year. And of all the Ingenieurs introduced, this is the one that excited us the most.
