IWC Teams Up wıth Warner Bros for Two Aquaman-Themed Aquatımer Perpetual Calendar Dıgıtal

Picture’s upcoming feature film Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom to launch two new models, inspired by the red and blue glowing prop watches that the brand supplied for the production of the highly-anticipated feature film sequel. Ultra-bold, clearly on the large side, equipped with multiple complications and shaped for a mission, IWC has created two aquatic-inspired models (of course, considering the partnership) in full black attire with brightly-coloured contrasting elements. Meet the Aquaman-themed IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month Ceratanium. 

These watches are some of the largest and boldest models ever created by IWC. Not entirely new, these are based on a model that was first released in 2014 as part of the renewed Aquatimer collection. In the same vein, its complex chronograph QP movement has been seen on multiple occasions at IWC, for instance in this Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar or this Portugieser 75th Anniversary, although with rather different executions. What matters here is that we’re looking at 49mm watches – yes, that’ll make a Big Pilot not so big anymore – with a height of 19.5mm. Be ready to make an impact.

The case of both editions is full-black, thanks to the use of the brand’s Ceratanium material – a proprietary alloy combining the lightness and mechanical resistance of titanium with the properties of ceramic. As with all modern Aquatimer watches, it is equipped with the SafeDive System bezel, with a mechanical connection between the external and internal bezels. The crown is screwed and water-resistance is rated at 100m. They come equipped with a vented rubber strap, a Ceratanium pin buckle and a quick-exchange system like all watches from the current Aquatimer collection.

Powering this complex Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month is the in-house calibre 89802, an automatic integrated column-wheel chronograph with flyback function.
