Introducing The IWC Aquatimer Automatic 2000 Edition ’35 Years Ocean 2000′ Imitation Watch

Even though IWC’s pilot’s watches get the majority of the attention, don’t forget that the manufacturer makes some pretty significant dive watches too. The Aquatimer versions are severe tool watches that don’t mess around just one piece — to which our own Jack can firmly attest. For the 35th anniversary of the original Ocean 2000, IWC aquatimer 2000 titanium replica watch has made a modern tank of a dive watch which combines some of that very first model’s styling with a totally new slimmed-down event design. To mepersonally, this is definitely the most interesting dive watch IWC has generated in a very long time.

I won’t spend too much time on the backstory of the Ocean 2000 and the various divers that IWC aquatimer 2000 yellow imitation watch has created over time — that’s a story for another time — but I’ll say that the original was dreamed up by Ferdinand A. Porsche (yes, who Porsche) back in 1982. That’s some pretty serious layout provenance, and it is that watch which in fact functions as the inspiration for the whole modern Aquatimer collection. I have to say that with this particular model I think IWC aquatimer 2000 automatic titan 3538-03 replica watch has done a good job paying homage without outright copying Mr. Porsche’s iconic layout also.

What we’ve got here is a watch that functionally is right on par with the present IWC Aquatimer Automatic 2000 replica Watch. It has the combination internal/external SafeDive bezel method for time dives, it has a titanium case to keep weight to a minimum, and it certainly shows the time with broad, luminous hands from a dark black dial. Just, the profile is totally different. Rather than the case measuring 48.4millimeter x 20.9mm, this watch’s case comes in at just 42mm x 14.5mm and it’s still completely water resistant to 2,000 meters. Therefore, while it can do anything the Automatic 2000 can perform, this is a much more wearable watch at a dimension that will not look out of place if you are more inclined to be wearing it to the office or the shore than on a saturation diving mission.

For a point of comparison, the mainline IWC aquatimer 2000 bracelet imitation watch comes at at 42mm x 14.2mm, therefore that this watch is merely .3mm thicker and you get an extra 1,700 meters of water resistance. That is some pretty significant technology right there. Speaking personally, I also think that the warm color of these titanium pairs really nicely with the black, black, black, and red flow here, making it the most attractive of the modern Aquatimers too.

The IWC Aquatimer Automatic 2000 Edition”35 Years Ocean 2000″ is a limited edition of 350 pieces using a retail cost of $7,400. For much more on this particular watch, see IWC online.

In-Depth The IWC Automatic Aquatimer 2,000 Meters Replica watches And What Would Happen If You Wore It That Deep

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.
