The IWC aquatimer 2000 bracelet imitation watch Automatic Aquatimer 2,000 Meters is a watch designed to withstand the pressure found at a depth of two kilometers. It seems and feels every inch the part, but could anybody — even theoretically — wear it far down rather than immediately (and messily) implode? Let us look at the opinion , and in the same time run a little thought experiment on what might happen if you tried to go as deep as the watch can.

This specific version of the Aquatimer has the greatest depth rating of almost any model in the recent Aquatimer collection, but it’s not the first 2,000 meter ranked IWC Aquatimer 2000 replica watch. The very first was the IWC Ocean 2,000, that was a collaboration with Porsche Design made back in 1982.

The IWC aquatimer 2000 automatic titan 3538-03 replica watch Aquatimer Automatic 2,000 Meters, on the other hand, needs you to have no doubts as to its toughness. It is 46mm x 20.5mm, even though theSafeDive bezel system probably involves some extra girth and thickness as well. The SafeDive system consists of an external bezel, which rotates an interior bezel through an inner equipment linkage; the idea is to combine the simplicity of use of an outer bezel using all the legibility of an interior bezel. A dive watch with a SafeDive system is actually rather similar in construction to a modern submarine — subs, generally speaking, possess an outer strand that provides good hydrodynamics and streamlining, and also an inner pressure hull which contains the living and work spaces to the crew. Likewise, the SafeDive system entails an external case (on which the outer bezel is mounted) which allows the ingress and egress of water, along with an interior case, which is responsible for shielding the motion. The protrusion at 9:00 houses the coupling equipment mechanism linking the inner and outer bezels.

The domed sapphire crystal stands quite prominently over the bezel (whose layout structures that of the IWC aquatimer 2000 titanium replica watch Ocean 2,000) at least 3-4mm, and of course the movements used in the Ocean 2,000 and the Aquatimer 2,000 Meters are absolutely different. The Ocean 2,000 utilized the IWC cal. 80110 utilized in this Aquatimer. Caliber 80110 was launched in 2005 from the then-new Ingenieur Automatic, and it has 30mm x 7.26mm, including IWC’s Pellaton winding system. This is quite a bit thicker than the 3.6mm-thick ETA 2892, although arguably a more robust selection for a technical dive watch.

Enter High Pressure Nervous Syndrome (HPNS). HPNS is not well known even now — it might be due to poisonous gas impacts, or it could simply be high pressure inducing alterations in nervous system functioning, or both. But it seems to be the variable currently limiting human deep diving. Symptoms include all kinds of unfortunate things such as tremors, vomiting, and seizures — all things that are, as medical scholars like to dryly put it,”incompatible with life.” HPNS is more or less entirely incapacitating and since we don’t understand how to conquer it, diving deeper than the 500-600 meter range looks permanently out of reach.

Suppose, however, that it were possible to dive deeper — that HPNS could be conquered, somehow? Well, even the most powerful inert gasses, such as helium, become narcotic should you go deep enough. The problem is that, at this point, we’ve run up against an absence of information. Individual experiments in inert gas narcosis and deep diving have not been done at depths even half that of the thickness evaluation of this IWC aquatimer 2000 yellow imitation watch Aquatimer 2,000 Meters. Unknown (but probably lethal) gasoline intoxication effects aside, the other problem is that at these extreme depths, breathing gas mixtures become too dense to breathe. One suggested alternative: breathing oxygen rich liquid. Such liquids, however, would not be very effective at eliminating waste carbon dioxide in your system — even in the slightest, you’d need to circulate about 5 liters per minute in and out of your lungs. This would be much more work than breathing air.
