Sometimes, new watches fit the novelty bill to a tee, as in the case of the IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Replica“Sharks”. Surely, offering a watch as part of a package with a book, all presented in a bite-proof metal shark cage, must count as novel!
Obviously, the Chronograph Edition “Sharks” is the same Aquatimer we looked at a couple of years ago, with some tweaks. The IWC Replica Watches features a hammerhead shark engraving on the solid case back. We’ll revisit some of the other details in a bit.
IWC Replica describes his work here as having “an unprecedented degree of technical perfection”, which probably explains why the Schaffhausen-based watchmaker was drawn to him.
Aside from the engraving on the case back, the grey dial is meant to evoke the distinctive colouring of many shark species. In terms of hands, hour markers, numerals, functions, and movement, this edition is the same as the standard Limited Edition IWC Copy Aquatimer Chronograph.
