IWC collaborates with Warner Bros. Entertainment’s upcoming movie series Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom to launch the replica IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month watch, inspired by the two red and blue prop watches provided by IWC for this movie sequel. More replica IWC Aquatimer watches.
The replica IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month watch is available in two versions, each limited to 25 pieces. It uses an atmospheric 49 mm Ceratanium® porcelain titanium case, with a black dial and a black rubber strap. One version uses red Super-LumiNova® luminous material on the dial, hands and rotating inner ring, while the other version uses blue luminous material. Advanced technical features include a perpetual calendar with digital date and month display and a chronograph function. Through the sapphire glass bottom, you can appreciate the IWC-manufactured 89802 movement inside the watch. Its parts have been treated with a special process and appear black.
The IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month watch is available in two versions, both with black dials and black hands. Inspired by the shining colors of the prop watches in the film, one version (model: IW379405) uses red Super-LumiNova® for the dial, hands and rotating inner ring that indicates the diving time, while the other version (model: IW379406) uses red Super-LumiNova®. Blue glow in the dark. Super-LumiNova® is a high-tech ceramic compound that works like a light storage battery through a physical phenomenon called phosphorescence. By absorbing light energy from sunlight or artificial light sources, the electrons in the material are put into a higher energy state and the energy is stored. When the electron returns to its normal state, the absorbed energy is emitted as visible light, making it glow in the dark or underwater. The case, back gasket, crown and buttons of the two new versions of the watch are all made of IWC’s patented Ceratanium® porcelain titanium material.
With a diameter of 49 mm, the new watch is large enough to rank among the top of all timepieces in the history of IWC. Ceratanium® is a high-performance material that combines the lightness and structural integrity of titanium with the hardness and scratch resistance of ceramic. It is based on a special titanium alloy and is a new material developed by IWC. The case parts are machined from bar stock, the surfaces are hand-finished and fired at ultra-high temperatures in an oven. During this high-temperature treatment process, the surface can acquire various properties similar to ceramics and also acquire its own unique color.
The main function of the replica IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month watch is a perpetual calendar with a digital display. The rotating disc on the dial displays the date and month in digital form, which is clear, intuitive and easy to read. The perpetual calendar is mechanically programmed to automatically recognize months with different days and leap years. Therefore, the pairing of “29” and “02” only appears on the dial once every four years. The IWC-manufactured caliber 89802 drives the calendar through a conversion pulse every night. In addition, the movement also has a chronograph function, displaying the accumulated hours and minutes in a time-reading manner at 12 o’clock. The two-way pawl winding system converts the movement of the oscillating weight into the energy of the mainspring in two directions, thereby efficiently accumulating a power reserve of up to 68 hours.
