Like the Aqua Graph Mark III, the MK IV  appeared just a year after the its precedessor (March 1968) . The Main difference is findable at the hands. The minute counter has a orange painted thick hand and the chrono second hand is formed like a triangle and also orange. Despite that, the bezel was changed at a small detail.

Serial Range: 1.070.2xx – 1.070.4xx

Case

Stainless steel EPSA compressor case with bajonet lock.

40,6mm x 49,5mm without crown, 14mm thickness, lug width 20mm

Bezel

The bezel of the Mark IV is counting up from 0 to 60. 10, 20, 30, 40, and 60 is written in bigger number than the 5min steps. Every minute has a dash as indicator. The Bezel itself is made of aluminum with a black surface and numbers in silver.

The main difference to the other references is the usage of just one lume spot instead of two at 12 o’clock.

The bezel is freely turning without clicks.

 

Red Ring

Made of red eloxed aluminum the pointer of the ring of the MK III is formed like a house. The ring is freely turning from the bezel.

Hands

The MK IV uses the minute and hour hand of the MK III. New is the chrono second hand in shape of a triangle and orange paint and the subdial hand from the minute counter, which is orange too.

Minute and hour hands are baton style with white paint around the lume. Those style was very common for Enicar watches of the mid till end 60’s.
