Over the past decade or so, the luxury replica IWC Aquatimer watches has lived a very discreet life, as the brand’s promotional activities have mostly been dominated by the Pilot’s and Portugieser collections.
This is because the prestigious Swiss watchmaker is increasingly enriching its main collections with in-house movements.
We are talking about diving fake watches for sale with a classic appearance, a solid construction and an original internal bezel design, the Aquatimer has long been underestimated.
To bring the AAA US replica watches back into play without changing its appearance much, IWC has decided to apply the same recipe used with the new Mark XX series and the new Pilot Chronograph 43. Here is the new IWC Aquatimer Automatic Collection 2022, now equipped with a movement with a 5-day power reserve.
As you can see from the comparison above, the evolution of the IWC Aquatimer Automatic is minimal … Or, to simplify, almost nothing has been changed in terms of the design, specifications or dimensions of the case.
It all depends on the new movement. Therefore, the basic concept of the Aquatimer Automatic remains unchanged. There may be some small changes regarding the font size or some finishing details, but that’s all you can expect from a design standpoint.
In short, the specifications, dimensions and design are essentially identical to the previous models. But what’s inside makes the difference: it’s the brand’s 32111 automatic movement with no less than five days of power reserve, compared to the existing model’s ETA 2892 with its typical 42 hours.
The new (and old, in this case) Aquatimer Automatic is 42mm diving copy watches wholesale with a thickness of 14.10mm.
The shape of the case is a distinctive element of this collection, which is based on a specific construction of the rotating bezel. While most diving high quality replica watches on the market feature an outer bezel, the Aquatimer has an internal 60-minute scale printed on an angled flange.
But even here, it’s not like your usual “compressor-like” super clone watches shop site, where a secondary crown drives this rotating element. Here, IWC has implemented a mechanical connection, which does not require unscrewing or operating a crown (there is always a risk of water entering the case). The outer bezel rotates and, as you move it, thanks to an encapsulated mechanism at 9 o’clock, the inner bezel rotates accordingly.
The rest of the Swiss movements fake watches is classic, with a steel case, finished with brushed surfaces and some shiny details. The dial is protected by an AR-coated sapphire crystal, the crown is screwed down, as is the solid steel caseback. Overall, this gives us a comfortable water resistance of 300 m.
One of the evolutions of this perfect replica IWC Aquatimer Automatic Collection 2022 watches concerns the dial options. Previously available only with a black dial (at least from the permanent collection), IWC now adds a blue edition with a sunray brushed finished surface, combined with a textured blue rubber strap closed by a pin buckle (Ref. IW328801).
The matte black model is still present, both with a matching rubber strap (Ref. IW328802) and with a brushed stainless steel bracelet closed by a deployant buckle (Ref. IW328803).
All are equipped with a practical quick change system. As for the dial and crown, no evolution is to be reported, the three models are equipped with large hands and indexes filled with white Super-LumiNova.
IWC Caliber 32111
It is inside the case of the IWC Aquatimer Automatic 2022 that things really change. In the past, these best Swiss made fake watches have been powered by the caliber 30120, a 4 Hz automatic movement with a 42-hour power reserve sourced from ETA or Sellita (a 2892-A2 or a SW300-1).
This year this movement was replaced by the caliber 32111, a movement produced in the ValFleurier factories of the Richemont Group and whose architecture is shared with Panerai and Baumatic of Baume & Mercier.
The main advantage of this movement, intended to replace ETA calibers with identical dimensions, is that it has a significantly improved power reserve of 120 hours (or five days). It beats at 4Hz and, although it is hidden under the caseback, it is decorated with Geneva stripes and perlage.
Some enthusiasts may not want to call it “in-house“, but it is certainly a significant and more interesting update than the previous ETA (still very valid movement but not justified at these prices).
