Designed originally by Ferdinand A. Porsche back in 1982, the IWC Aquatimer Ocean 2000 was years ahead of its time with its avant-garde design. In celebration of the 35th birthday of this style icon, IWC is now releasing a special limited edition with a thickness of just 14.5 millimetres.
Limited to 350 watches, the Aquatimer Automatic 2000 Edition “35 Years Ocean 2000” (IW329101) is the thinnest deep-sea diver’s watch in IWC’s collection. Despite the minimal case height, it functions reliably on dives thanks to the new, improved shape of the titanium case. IWC pioneered the use of titanium for watch cases and boasts over 30 years of experience in processing this lightweight, extremely resilient material.
A diver’s helmet for deep-sea divers is engraved on the back of the watch, reminding the owner each day of its extreme pressure-resistance of 200 bar. Design features such as the black dial, the white hands and indices coated with luminescent paint and the red tip of the seconds hand are inspired by the Ocean 2000. The striking recessed grips on the rotating bezel and the lamellar-style rubber strap pay tribute to the Porsche original from 1982.
