The first IWC Aquatimer appeared on the wrists of divers in 1967. It was IWC’s response to the growing demand for dive watches. Now, 50 years later, it has become one of cheap IWC watches more popular collections. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Aquatimer, replica IWC watches has released a special limited edition called – deep breath now – the IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month Edition “50 Years Aquatimer.” To make it stand out even more, it uses an all-new alloy called Ceratanium.
Material innovation has been a popular way for watch brands to distinguish themselves from their competitors, and according to IWC, Ceratanium (ceramic + titanium = Ceratanium) is an alloy that took them five years to get right. The end result is a material that combines the lightness and corrosion-resistance of titanium with the hardness and scratch-resistance of ceramic – which is also pretty light. The innovation and use of Ceratanium are appropriate in another way because they seem to reference the history that in 1982, sale IWC watches and Porsche Design worked together to produce the Ocean 2000, the first Swiss-made titanium watch. The honor of the first titanium watch actually goes to Seiko’s Professional Diver’s 600m, but that’s a story for another day.
