Collector’s Corner: IWC La Cumbre Volcano
IWC’s Newest Aquatimer Arrives in Nashville: Discover the Adventurous Spirit Inspiring the IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Limited Edition La Cumbre Volcano
This week on Collector’s Corner, we’re discussing an exciting new limited edition timepiece that just arrived in our Nashville salon: the IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition La Cumbre Volcano. We love all of IWC’s limited edition Aquatimers (anyone remember the Galapagos Islands edition?) because they invoke the feeling of excitement surrounding adventurous expeditions into the unknown. The La Cumbre Volcano edition, we’re happy to report, doesn’t disappoint in the slightest.
For seven years now, IWC has worked closely with the Charles Darwin Foundation to perserve the fragile ecosystem of the Galapagos Islands. You may remember that Darwin’s best-known contributions to the scientific community followed evolution of finches in the Galapagos. Since their partnership with the Charles Darwin Foundation began back in 2009, IWC has dedicated special Aquatimer editions to the islands and the latest addition to the collection is no exception. The La Cumbre Volcano moniker refers to the La Cumbre volcano on the island of Fernandina in the Galapagos.
