IWC 50th Anniversary Ceratanium Aquatimer Watch

To some people, a watch is just a watch. To others, they are a complex works of art that have been perfected over centuries. We fall into the latter group. So, it’s fair to say that we were excited to hear that IWC had created a watch that was the first of its kind in their 50th Anniversary Aquatimer.

What makes this watch special is that its case is crafted from a new material that the brand has dubbed Ceratanium. This hybrid material features the same corrosion resistance and lightweight properties of titanium, as well as the hardness and scratch resistance of ceramic – the best of both worlds. On top of that, this stunning wristwatch features an automatic movement with a 68-hour power reserve, an exhibition case back, an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, and a perpetual calendar and chronograph complications. But it will be extremely limited – only 50 will ever be made – and will only be sold in IWC’s stores at a price of around $52,300.

Purchase: $52,300
