“Those who dare to waste an hour in their lives have not yet discovered the value of life”, Charles Darwin, a tireless natural scholar, once said. He had ever landed on the Galapagos Islands in 1835, comprehending the profound mystery of “evolution” and finally publishing the book “The Origin of Species” in 1859, forever changing the way people consider and understand the world. IWC has launched a special edition Aquatimer “Expedition Charles Darwin” to pay tribute to the great scientist. The magnificent copy watch has been made up of the significant material of bronze.
44mm IWC Aquatimer imitation watch is the first model in IWC’s history with a bronze case, which pays tribute to the well-known ship, HMS Beagle, that Charles Darwin was aboard to explore the Galapagos Islands. In those days, the corrosion resistant bronze is universally used for portholes, components and nautical instruments. Made from the bronze, the case could preserve its steadiness and robustness perfectly, meanwhile, sporting a distinctive look of shimmering metal luster.
IWC fake with black dial has been driven by calibre 89365, a self-winding mechanical movement manufactured by IWC, providing a power reserve of 68 hours. It is the expressive portrait of Darwin that has been engraved on the caseback. Other features of this model include the chronograph function of minutes and seconds which have been set at 6 o’clock and 12 o’clock separately, the date window set at 3 o’clock, as well the luminescent coating hands and hour markers to guarantee the great legibility.
