Bill Paxton Wears IWC Aquatimer Chrono Automatic Watch In Big Love Season 3   feature articles It took me the better part of season three so far to spot this watch. I knew that earlier seasons of Big Love (on HBO) had Bill Paxton (playing as character Bill Henrickson) wearing an Omega Speedmaster. This was likely out of his own collection. Season three sees him wearing something similar looking on camera (both steel with black and white faces), but a different watch. I eventually decided that it was an IWC Aquatimer Chrono-Automatic. It look a lot of pausing and staring to figure this out (trust me). This is a good choice for a man with three wives, and a ton of duties on his plate. When he is not "living the principle" the character acts as a strong businessman and Salt Lake City responsible citizen!

I haven't seen him dive into water too many times (no one dives in the Great Salt Lake right?), but the IWC Aquatimer is a great choice for a multi-duty classy yet rugged watch. The IWC Aquatimer Chrono-Automatic is a modern IWC diving watch with an automatic Valjoux 7750 movement in side to power it. Water resistant to 120 meters (about 400 feet), the pushers do not need to be screwed down and can be operated underwater. What looks like a screwdown pusher for the lower chronograph pusher is actually a pusher as well as a crown to operate the internal rotating bezel. I like this model because of how subtle it is. Other Aquatimer watches have splashes of color, but that look isn't what everyone is looking for. While it is hard to tell in the images, the watch has a high amount of rich polish and finish on the case and dial.

Bill Paxton Wears IWC Aquatimer Chrono Automatic Watch In Big Love Season 3   feature articles While most versions are in steel. Bill Paxton's Aquatimer is in stainless steel that gives it a better gloss, and more heft. The case is a decent 42mm wide, so as not to make it massive. One of the best parts of the watch is the bracelet. With a very unique design, it gives the watch a lot of character and tapers oh-so-nicely while being integrated with the case. A rubber strap version is also available. The model of this precise watch is IW371928. These are actually of the more rare IWC Aquatimer watches. They are also pretty well priced given the brand and the features. With a retail price of $5,700, you can find street prices closer to $4000 (online at least). I have a good feeling this watch is also right out of Bill Paxton's personal collection. I do think he is great in his part in HBO's Big Love, but I still can't seem to forget his whiny but charming Spacemarine Character Private Hudson in the movie Aliens.
