Swatch Scuba AquaChrono FIVB World Championships 09 Stavanger

Each year, Swatch sponsors the Fédération Internationale De Volleyball (FIVB) world beach volleyball tour. Of course, to mark the occasion, they release a limited edition watch (now 3 limited editions in 3 days ;-)).

The watch for the 2009 championship was an AquaChrono in black and gold (including the number 09 at the 9 o'clock position in gold to mark the events year). The design also has a bezel which has the pointer at 9 rather than the more normal 12. The strap states this is for the Swatch FIVB'09 World Championships, and for each location on the tour, the cities name (Stavanger in this case) is printed on the strap holder by the buckle.

The AquaChrono was released in 1994, and is a combination of a Scuba 200 and Chronograph. It is a 3-hand dial, with date at the 3 o'clock position. One the face are 3 small dials for the chronograph, which are 2 x dials to 60 (seconds and minutes), and a dial to 10 (tenths of a second).
