Replacement Of Iwc Marine Diver’s Watch

The diver’s watch from Schaffhausen has changed to a new shape-and it has reached its peak. It can be said that the Aquatimer 2000 automatic watch is still the ‘nec plus aqua’ of the marine timepiece series. Withstands pressures up to 200 bar.

When IWC Schaffhausen launched the Aquatimer series in 1967 for the first time, its water resistance of 20 bar caused a sensation. Diving was still an emerging sport at that time, and the name of the marine timepiece has become the code name for diving. In this regard, this is still the case today.
停留 Staying in the water with scuba equipment is a time-limited adventure. To dive safely, certain rules must be strictly followed. Slightly rewrite the old proverb: time is not money, life or health is. What is reassuring is that there are now portable computers for diving that free divers from having to calculate depth and dive time, or even decompression time. The only thing indispensable is the reliable diver’s watch as a backup!
的 The diver’s watch from Schaffhausen uses the new Aquatimer 2000 automatic watch as the basic style, which has changed to a new shape and also reached its peak. This not only refers to its ability to withstand pressures of up to 200 bar, but also its 44 mm enlarged case diameter. Because in the water, the larger size means clearer reading. The newly developed rotating diving outer ring replaces the previous inner ring and is the main feature of the new face of the 2010 Aquatimer series.

Both designs have their reasons for support. IWC has a wealth of experience in manufacturing watch cases and has accumulated a lot of expertise in both areas in the past. Now, to enhance functionality, it chooses to change this important component of the diver’s watch from the outside. This evolution depends on new materials. Among all relevant considerations, the function is the highest priority: the rotating outer ring must be easy to operate in the water, and it can be manipulated easily even with gloves-of course, for safety, it can only be turned in the opposite direction-and can display for one minute Depth of infiltration. It has also made a significant improvement in reading diving time, and can read the time recorded by the watch even under extremely poor lighting conditions.
的 IWC’s engineers came up with a convincing design: a rotating diving outer ring with ‘backlight’. The multi-function outer ring is a 4 mm wide sapphire glass ring. The bottom is printed and coated with a concentrated Super-LumiNova luminous coating, so it is especially suitable for night diving.
分 The minute hand that echoes the triangle on the rotating outer ring is specially painted with strong color to avoid confusion. The Aquatimer 2000 automatic watch has two dials: black, the quarter-rotating outer ring in the first 15 minutes is bright yellow, the yellow minute hand and the yellow central second hand end. This color combination makes it clear at a glance how it relates to the marine timepiece series. Bright yellow has its important function-it is filtered out very deep in the water. The second Aquatimer 2000 watch has a white dial with a quarter-turn outer ring in white and orange numerals, and the ends of the hour and second hands are orange. The series name ‘Aquatimer’ also appeared for the first time in a small font on the dial.
From a technical point of view, the new Aquatimer 2000 automatic watch-just like its predecessor-is equipped with the reliable 30110 automatic movement. The watch has a date display, which can be pulled out (normal operation is screwed in) to stop the second hand for adjustment.
Both watches have bracelets and straps to choose from: the practical and sturdy IWC stainless steel bracelet system, or the black rubber (information, market) strap with pin buckle. The new Aquatimer series also uses an innovative quick-change system for the bracelet: the lock on the inside of the bracelet or the strap can be opened by pressing with your fingers, allowing the bracelet or strap to be replaced in seconds. The same method can be used to choose a buckle type extension strap to easily wear the watch outside a wetsuit.

An Explanation Of Homesickness Tasting Montblanc Nicolas · Case Hollow Dual Time Zone Display Chronograph

As early as January 16, 2012, Montblanc (Montblanc) announced the brand-new Nicholas Kaiser hollow double time zone display chronograph to the international media and the public at the 2012 Geneva Haute Horlogerie Show. In 2011, Montblanc released the Nicholas · Kesch Chronograph Commemorative Series, dedicated to the 190th anniversary of the advent of modern timekeeping technology, and paid tribute to Nicolas Rieussec, the father of modern timekeeping technology. Nicholas Case was a royal watchmaker for the French royal family. In 1821, he successfully developed a rotary time writer. He obtained a patent certificate in 1822, and wrote an important page in the history of clock technology development. Montblanc has been continuously developing new models of the Nicholas Case series in recent years, and at the 2012 Geneva Watchmaking Fair, it released the Montblanc Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph Open Hometime equipped with a new movement. Continue the glorious history of the father of timing technology with more sophisticated timing technology. Official watch number: 107067.

The Nicholas Case family of chronographs, including the latest hollow-out dual time zone display chronograph, takes a different approach. The left side of the case is equipped with a single timing button (monopusher) at the 8 o’clock side. The position of the button is matched with the pressing action of the thumb of the right hand, which can also avoid the wrong start of the timing program when it encounters a hard object.

   The Nicholas · Kease chronograph also does not have a chronograph seconds hand. Instead, it is taken from the original chronograph in 1821, and the seconds and minutes chronograph dials are set at 8 and 4 o’clock.

   The Nicholas · Case chronograph also does not have a central chronograph seconds hand. The leaf-shaped hour and minute hands have a luminous coating.

   The back of the watch is set with crystal glass, precision parts such as the movement, oscillating weight and column wheel, as well as the finishing touches. It is equipped with a precious black alligator leather strap and 18K rose gold buckle, which is comfortable to wear and easy to switch.

   At 9 o’clock, there is a curved day / night display of the hometown, like a comet dragging the tail of a stardust. When moving between different time zones, just turn the crown slightly to cut the clock hands to the local time. The separation of the movement system does not hinder the precise operation of the movement.

   The appearance of this new work is classical and beautiful. The new self-made MB R210 movement also incorporates classic chronograph structure and advanced technical elements. This new movement was designed and developed by Montblanc. The timing program is controlled by the column wheel, and the power is transmitted to the timing wheel through the advanced disc clutch, which avoids jumping when the second chronograph is started, and can greatly reduce the operation loss of the second chronograph. The screw balance with a diameter of nearly 10 mm has a swing frequency of 28,800 times per hour (4Hz), which makes fine tuning more accurate. The movement has a dual spring drum and a power reserve of about 72 hours. It provides ideal torque and stable swing. All these are necessary conditions for accurate timepieces. Even if the watch is left aside for a day or two, it still does not prevent the accuracy of the time.

In summary: This watch as a whole still has the elegance of a formal watch and the elegance of a sports watch. In terms of practicality, the timing function and the second time zone display are also commonly used. If the price is appropriate, this watch Watches are also a very good choice for watch buyers, while the precious metal material also adds a lot to the watch’s texture.
