IWC Aquatimer CHRONOGRAPH Edition Expedition Jacques-Yves COUSTEAU

By TLex This is the AQUATIMER Chronograph Edition 'Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau' Ref. 376805, a traditional Aquatimer limited edition honoring one of the great pioneers of the deep.

As is typical of Cousteau editions the dial is in sea-blue dial with a small coral-red seconds hand in acknowledgment Cousteau's passion for coral reefs.

Features of the watch include: a Stainless steel case with 300 meters / 30 bar of water-resistant to 30 bar. The watch is technically identical to the Aquatimer CHRONOGRAPH. A chronograph complication on a divers watch can be used as reliable backup system during dives: as a means of measuring decompression stops.

The case back engraving shows Jacques Cousteau AKA Le Commandant wearing his trademark woolen beanie.

The Expedition Jacques-Yves Cousteau commemorates the fantastic voyage of discovery to the Galapagos archipelago undertaken by the champion of the oceans in 1971.
