    FSoT: IWC Aquatimer Ref 3538 - Titanium Twin Crown Model on Strap

    This is an IWC 3538 Aquatimer, which is no longer made. It has an all-titanium case, with thick sapphire crystal, that gives it the incredible water resistance down 2000 meters (6,666 feet). Because IWC believes in proper engineering, it achieves this depth rating without the need for a HRV. They also built it to withstand 60 atmospheres of negative pressure! It has a signed screw-down crown at 2 o'clock to set the time and quick-set date (at 3), and a self-sealing crown at 4 to operate the internal timer bezel. The bezel clicks solidly in minute intervals, unidirectionally, and is smooth as silk. The first 15 minutes of it are coated in luminous SLN, as are the clean handset. The matte black dial has SLN hour markers. Everything glows nicely all night long. The heart of the watch is its automatic movement. It is based on a ETA 2428-2, but has been so extensively re-worked and upgraded that IWC calls it a Cal. 30333. This particular watch is keeping time less than three seconds a day vs NIST. It is a very stout watch that feels light on the wrist due to the ti construction, measuring about ~42mm across. These listed for over $4K new. It is not mint, although the pics taken today barely show a mark. With just one or two teeny marks on the edge of the outer bezel, I'd rate it TZ Excellent at 92%. The crystal and crowns are mint, as is the dial, handset, and internal bezel. The heavy duty rubber strap with titanium keeper is also virtually like new. Comes without boxes and papers (but is guaranteed 100% genuine).
    Looking for a quick sale at NOW $2,660 shipped.
