The “Sharks” bundle, comprising a limited-edition watch and a copy of the limited-edition book, is available to buy in IWC boutiques now.
Continuing a legacy of preservation since IWC began working with the Charles Darwin Foundation in 2009, IWC now turns their considerable attention to solving the issue of increasing numbers of shark species facing extinction. The result is the IWC Aquatimer Shark Edition, an effort which Georges Kern, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen aims to raise awareness of the 100 million or so sharks caught each year while living in environments which suffer from depleted food resources, further impacting the endangered species.

The special edition of the Schaffhausen manufacture’s Aquatimer diver’s watch comes in a limited production of 500 watches as denoted by the caseback engraving of a unique hammerhead shark. The IWC Aquatimer Shark Edition is a chronograph edition exclusively packaged with Michael Muller’s TASCHEN book “Sharks” from which this special edition diver’s chronograph draws its name.
Though he is best known for his striking portraitures of celebrities including Joaquin Phoenix, Robert Downey Jr., and Hugh Jackman. His other work involve the dramatic style promotional materials for Iron Man and Wolverine films. His most influential work to date remains the photographer’s signature up-close underwater shark photography already featured on international media channels like the Travel Channel and in globally circulated magazines like Entertainment Weekly; now, his work is also found together with the IWC Aquatimer Shark Edition.
