IWC IW376705 44mm Aquatimer Chronograph Automatic 3767-05 Edition Galapagos Island for men

Speaking of the size, there is no difference between this Galapagos Island edition and the other Aquatimer Chronograph watches under reference 3767. Its round case measures 44 mm in diameter, around 15 mm thick, and its whole construction boasts a capacity of 120 m water resistance. However, unlike the "regular" ones, this timepiece’s 316L grade stainless steel made round case is coated with a Black vulcanized rubber that is not only meant for aesthetic sake, but also protects the rugged chronograph against impacts and harmful influences of all kinds. Furthermore, its solid caseback is engraved with "TRIBUTE TO CHARLES DARWIN FOUNDATION", "GALAPOGOS ISLANDS", and turtle insignia in the middle.

Of course, you'll find that sophisticated hallmarks of all Aquatimers in this IWC 3767-05, a striking face with a 4mm wide external rotating bezel that is specifically developed for diving, and features a differently coloured arc for the first quarter of the bezel --in which, more than just for decorative purpose, that distict first quarter, as well as the markings on this PVD-steel bezel are coated with SuperLumiNova that remains luminescent for a long time under water to assists diver to time his decompression stops safely and precisely. And to let the watch remains soundly on the wrist, its 20 mm wide Black rubber bracelet comes equipped with a traditional pin and buckle.

Similar to the rest of its equal variants, this sporty timekeeper is fitted with the time tested IWC calibre 79320, a Swiss made automatic chronograph movement with day and date indicator, and chronograph function with hours, minutes and seconds. Specifically, this reliable mechanical calibre contains contains 25 jewels, beats at 28,800 vph, and provides around 44 hours of power reserve under when fully wound. Its whole functionality are clearly showcased through the sapphire shielded Black dial that features luminous steel hands and stick markers for optimum visibility. Meanwhile, all the setting and adjustment can be conveniently done via the screw down crown and the two alongside push-buttons at the right hand side.

As a special edition, this Galapagos Islands version cost a bit pricier compared to the steel on rubber as well as the steel on steel Aquatimer Chronograph. Still, at an original suggested retail price of $6,900.00, this IWC IW376705 is definitely a highly reasonable one to be considered to be added into your mechanical timepiece collection.
