IWC Aquatimer Chrono (spot the difference)

By TLex IWC have made a couple of subtle cosmetic changes to the look of their Aquatimer Chronograph Ref. IW376701. The new Ref. IW376708's Aquatimers Chrono's 12 and 6 o'clock sub-dials are no longer in silver, but instead maintain continuity of the watch's black dial. Personally I preferred the contrast of the silver on black, but these also work for me.

Other changes come from the watch's bracelet and clasp. The highly-polished center links of the bracelet are now brushed and the push-button clasp now features a double-button release. Now that's an improvement; I wonder of the whole Aquatimer family will benefit from these changes?

In addition a new blue and white color combination Ref. IW376711 joins the now two year old 'new' Aquatimer family. Hat tip goes to Suddha of the DWC dive watch forum.
