IWC is expanding their core lines with in-house movements. The brand’s Aquatimer Automatic diving watch now receives a makeover after the Mark XX Pilot’s Watch that was just released. The upgrade gives a watch that stands out in the congested dive-watch market a whole new appeal.
The new Aquatimer Automatic comes with similar features, measurements, and appearance. What really sets it apart is the brand new 32111 automatic movement, which has at least five days of power reserve as opposed to the ETA 2892 in the current model, which has 42 hours of power reserve.

Although it isn’t a new movement, its inclusion gives ease and all the benefits of in-house movements that fans often desire, such as a more cohesive end product, greater technical interest, and a better price.
Also, this new model functions differently, the IWC Aquatimer’s timing scale is located under the crystal on the watch’s rehaut, and when the bezel is turned, the rehaut spins in the opposite direction. When you give it a try, you’ll find it to be innovative, handy, and simple.
The Aquatimer Automatic is a 42mm diving watch with a 14.10mm thickness. A distinguishing feature of this series is the case form, which depends on a particular design for the rotating diving bezel. The Aquatimer has an internal 60-minute scale printed on an angled flange, unlike the majority of diving watches on the market, which have an exterior bezel.
The rest of the watch is conventional, with a steel case and brushed surfaces with polished accents. The dial is covered by a sapphire crystal with AR coating. The crown is screwed on, and the solid steel caseback is fastened as well. This provides us with a comfortable 300m of water resistance.
All of these new models are outfitted with a quick-change system. There have been no changes to the dial or handset; the huge hands and index are still filled with white Super-LumiNova to give great readability.
