ROBUST DIVER’S WATCH FOR A FRAGILE ECOSYSTEM
The Aquatimer Chronograph Edition Galapagos Islands makes a statement about a partnership for the environment which Schaffhausen has entered into with the Galapagos-based Charles Darwin Foundation. For 50 years now, the Foundation has been making visitors aware of the archipelago’s uniqueness and providing them with guidelines to ecologically sound behaviour. At the same time, it keeps watch to ensure that the waters are not plundered and that the animals do not fall victim to poachers or predators imported from elsewhere. supports the work of the Foundation with a sizeable contribution generated by proceeds from the sale of the Aquatimer Chronograph Edition Galapagos Islands. This Aquatimer is the result of an evolution in watchmaking technology. The stainless-steel case undergoes a complex vulcanization process that leaves it with a matte-black rubber coating. This makes the watch, which is pressure-resistant to 12 bar, a joy to see and feel: as black as the lava on the volcanic islands and as white as the mist in which they are often shrouded.
