By TLex Another limited edition Aquatimer and it's not a Cousteau! This time IWC have partnered with the Lake Zurich based 'Boesch Boatyard'. Who have been producing luxury wooden water craft since the 1920s. With highly polished mahogany boats being Boesch's hallmark, it would only seem fitting that this limited edition Aquatimer's color scheme reflected Boesch's heritage. Boesch motorboats are so exclusive that no more than a 30 or 40 boats leave the boatyard each year.
The Aquatimer Chronograph Edition Boesch is for all sense and purposes the same watch as the Cousteau Chronographs that IWC have been releasing of recent years, offering the same larger 44mm case over the regular Chronograph's, in my opinion rather small 42mm case.
I love the look of this but I'm not a boating man myself so I'll take the Cousteau version over this one!
