The Aquatimer stands out as one of my preferred diving timepieces, and it enjoys considerable popularity among enthusiasts of diver’s watches. Despite its sizable round case, it is meticulously constructed to endure the intense pressures encountered underwater. Beyond its robust casing, the Aquatimer boasts an impeccably designed dial that ensures excellent readability. During my visits to the Replica IWC boutique, I consistently felt the desire to acquire an Aquatimer watch. However, I ultimately refrained from purchasing one, recognizing that its substantial size would not suit my slender wrist. Nevertheless, I did acquire a Portuguese chrono watch, which has become my most cherished IWC timepiece.
The replica Aquatimer 2000 that I am showcasing is crafted by the V6 factory. While it is not a recent release, having been produced by V6 several years ago, its allure recently caught my attention. Perhaps I had been overly focused on other models such as the Noob Daytona, Submariner, and PAMs, causing me to overlook this robust timepiece. In reality, it commands our attention with its distinct charm and appeal.
To begin with, being produced by the V6 factory, this timepiece boasts a commendable quality that surpasses the majority of replica watches available in the market. The round-shaped case measures 44mm in diameter and has a thickness of 15mm, which, although substantial, is not excessively thick. This is noteworthy as many Replica Panerai Submersible watches typically feature cases thicker than 15mm. Each crown positioned on the side of the case serves a distinct purpose: the right crown is designated for adjusting the time and date. As for the left crown, while it mimics the helium valve button found on the genuine watch, it holds no functional significance on the replica. The thoughtful case design not only contributes to the timepiece’s robust aesthetic but also ensures that the dial appears spacious. In contrast to many diver’s watches with crowded dials, this design choice enhances readability.
The black dial features a multi-layered structure, with luminescent diving scales from 0 to 15 minutes on the beveled inner bezel, radiating a green glow. Both the hour hand and hour markers are adorned with white luminous material, emitting a distinctive blue light in low-light conditions. Meanwhile, the minute hand is coated with green lume, complementing the 0-15 minute diving scales. The watch excels in high readability, and its clean dial design stands out as two significant aspects that captivate my appreciation.
Enclosed within a robust case back is an automatic Miyota 9015 movement. This movement is widely adopted by numerous watch factories for their replica timepieces. However, it comes with a notable drawback—the rotor produces more audible noise compared to other Asian automatic movements. It’s important to highlight that this noise factor doesn’t compromise the stability of the movement. The Miyota 9015 movement is known for its commendable accuracy and generally exhibits minimal issues. It’s worth mentioning that the V6 factory has implemented a modification on the rotor to enhance its appearance, bringing it closer in resemblance to the genuine IWC caliber.
