IWC Aquatimer Automatic 2000

Posted by wristwatch on July 18, 2007

The Aquatimer Automatic 2000, a ruggedly built diver’s watch in the professional category, has a 42 mm diameter case. It is available exclusively in titanium with a titanium bracelet or a rubber strap. Every single watch is tested for pressure resistance to 200 atm (2000 metres). Like all Aquatimer Automatic models, it is instantly recognized by its two large, easy-to-operate crowns positioned off-centre on the edge of the case, where they will not disturb the diver underwater. The upper crown, which screws in, is used to adjust the movement and hands. To facilitate use during dives, the lower one does not screw in and has a complex, self-sealing design. It has several security features and is used to adjust the unidirectional rotating bezel inside the case via a sophisticated system of gears. Technology from professionals for professionals.

    How does the strap system work on this watch? It is at the top of my “Wish List”, but I am curious if the strap(s) are screw in, spring bar, or other?

    It’s the same unique release button system that was used on GST series and re-applied on newer series like the Ingenieur and Aquatimer.

    Had one for 3 years, when the inside of the bezel started to rust and the waterproofing seal wore out. After 3 years, and not even any diving? Would not recommend based on IWC’s poor post sales service, and refusal to stand behind the quality of the workmanship.
