The excitement for the upcoming blockbuster ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’ has just surged with the release of new behind-the-scenes footage, offering fans a tantalizing glimpse into what’s being hailed as “the most mind-blowing 3D experience since Avatar.” This exclusive peek, courtesy of IWC Schaffhausen, not only reveals the film’s cutting-edge production but also showcases the unique prop watches worn by the movie’s villains, glowing enigmatically in shades of red and blue.
As anticipation builds for the film’s global release on December 22nd, IWC Schaffhausen, the renowned Swiss luxury watch manufacturer, is celebrating in grand style. They’ve crafted a limited-edition timepiece, drawing inspiration from the watches they supplied for this highly anticipated sequel. This exclusive watch, a tool for divers to monitor oxygen levels, is a marvel of design and functionality. Limited to just 25 pieces per color variant, it features an impressive 49-millimeter Ceratanium® case, a sleek black dial, and a matching black rubber strap.
James Wan, the Australian filmmaker behind the Aquaman movies and co-creator of the Saw franchise, sheds light on the design philosophy of these exceptional timepieces: “We aimed to keep the watches aesthetically consistent with my vision for Black Manta. We wanted them slick, all-black, and undeniably cool. The red glow of Black Manta’s optical cannon in his helmet inspired one version of the watch to glow red, embodying not just style but crucial functionality. The craftsmanship and precision that go into building such a fine watch are truly commendable.”
The Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date Month comes in two striking versions, both sporting black dials and hands. Echoing the prop watches’ glow colors, one variant features red Super-LumiNova® on the dial, hands, and inner rotating bezel for dive time indication, while the other shines in a captivating blue. These timepieces are not just accessories; they are a celebration of craftsmanship and the thrilling world of Aquaman.
Prepare to be whisked away on an underwater adventure with ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’ and experience the exquisite fusion of cinema and horology with IWC Schaffhausen’s limited-edition marvels.
