IWC Aquatimer Day Date Chronograph - Ref 3719-28 (iw3719-28) from Circa 2006
IWC Aquatimer Chronograph, Ref 3719-28 is very first iteration of IWC's Aquatimer model with Chronograph and Day Date Complication
The most interesting and unique feature of this watch is the divers bezel located beneath the crystal. (This feature is exclusive to the first version Aquatimer Chronographs only.) The divers bezel is rotated (counter-clockwise only) by turning the chronograph push button located at 4:00. This button plays double duty in that pressing it (when the chronograph is stopped) resets the chronograph, while turning it clockwise rotates the inner divers bezel! The plunge-style pusher at 2:00 starts and stops the chronograph. A very cool and handy solution to having a divers watch with rotating bezel. Did i mention the chronograph was designed to be operated even while wearing gloves!

According to our customer, this watch was purchased brand new circa 2006 or so with enough time passing that our customer misplaced the boxes and papers. Thankfully he had a large wrist so the bracelet will fit up to 7 3/4 inch wrist size and adjustable to smaller wrists too by removing links.
This watch is keeping perfect time and the chronograph functions perfectly as well. We guarantee this watch for 24 months from date of sale

This IWC Aquatimer 3719-28 is a piece of IWC's history. It is estimated that fewer than 5000 of these watches were made over a period of a few years from 2005-2007 and then this model was replaced with a new and very different version of the Aquatimer Chronograph.
