These Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital watches draw inspiration from the luminescent prop watches adorning the wrists of the film’s antagonists, Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) and Dr. Stephen Shin (Randall Park). Rooted in a model introduced in 2014 as part of the revamped Aquatimer collection, these timepieces showcase the intricate chronograph QP movement, a feature previously showcased in other esteemed IWC watches. The case, fashioned from IWC’s exclusive Ceratanium material, presents an alluring full-black aesthetic, blending the lightweight attributes of titanium with the resilience of ceramic.
Boasting a water resistance of up to 100 meters, these watches incorporate a screw-down crown, fortifying their robust construction. Completing the ensemble is a vented rubber strap, a Ceratanium pin buckle, and a quick-exchange system, consistent with the contemporary offerings of the Aquatimer collection.
The dial design mirrors the vibrant glow observed in the prop watches from the film, featuring black dials and hands adorned with luminous red or blue accents. The inner rotating bezel serves a practical function, indicating dive time while enhancing the overall aesthetic brilliance. Characterized by their audacious design and substantial dimensions, these watches are laden with various complications, embodying IWC’s dedication to precision and practicality.
Limited to 25 pieces each, the Aquaman-themed IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month models goes upwards of RM60,000.
