Schaffhausen-based watchmaker IWC has over 50 years of experience in the development and production of professional diver’s watches for enthusiasts interested in exploring the ocean’s depths. The prototype was originally built in 1982 for mine clearance divers and designed by legendary industrial designer Ferdinand A. Porsche. The Ocean 2000 version was made for non-military use and was the first watch with a pressure-resistance of 200 bar, making it highly coveted by collectors. Now IWC has developed the thinnest deep-sea diver’s watch in its collection with the Aquatimer Automatic 2000 Edition “35 Years Ocean 2000.” Limited to 350 watches, the watch functions reliably on dives of up to 2,000 meters, which comes at the cost of the case’s height thanks to its improved titanium. The watch sports a black rubber strap with IWC’s patented quick-change system and a diving helmet engraving.
