Happy New Years everyone, its my first post after the holidays, and I hope everyone had a great holiday season. Now, down to IWC business.

Only a few years after the Aquatimer collection received a revamp, they are getting another facelift. This time, there are some serious upgrades to the system, not just a new sapphire crystal bezel and overall design changes. This one has some technological upgrades, the most obvious one is the IWC SafeDive system with the internal dive bezel that is operated by turning an outer bezel, similar to the Breitling B-1, though I believe the mechanism is different.
