This year, we have witnessed many superb IWC luxury watches for men and women. Some of them were distinguished by a new design, while others, like the Aquatimer Ocean 2000 Special Edition, were inspired by the most iconic watches from the company’s past. In fact, IWC is well known for combining timeless design with precision engineering, resulting in many timepieces in its current collection, which pay tribute to vintage models created at different times.
